Microsoft has confirmed a known issue with most supported versions of Windows after the latest updates, which breaks Wi-Fi hotspots.
– this setting affects presentation modes used in Windowed and Borderless Windowed DX10/DX11 games.
You don’t need to worry about DX12 games as they already take advantage of the new presentation mode.
Booting from USB, tried both, Rufus & ventoy (all latest versions), same result.this partition is too small. make the size of this partition at least 179437 MB (Appx 180GB) or select another partition.
Already done that, not worked, you understood the matter, it's not the error about the MBR-GPT partition mismatchShift-F10, open diskpart and disk 0 clean, convert gpt. Reboot.
I didn't do anything in the autounattend.xml, used NTL & that's created automatically via NTL while creating the ISO, & I've ben using the same settings/preset for more than 3yrs now, this is the first time getting such msg about sizeYour partitioning is wrong, look at autounattend.xml. Setup displays a single partition equal to the entire boot disk.
um, IDK, I've been using the same PRESET for years, sharing the GENERIC PRESET with youThere's no disk layout here. Was there one before in the old preset? (looking like my example file)
Drivers aren't the issue, you're talking about modding install.wim. We're still in WinPE stage, and without a disk layout it will try to use the existing partitions. Which it can't, because it's a single one instead of 4 required for UEFI disks.
Either you restore a working disk layout by redoing Unattend's Disk template, or shift-F10 and run diskpart to reset the partition table. As always, first double check it's the right disk.
I've been using the same set of drivers for many years, it certainly increases the .WIM size & the overall ISO size of course, & occupy more in C drive while installing, but never encountered such issue ever before, so am kinda clueless here about what goes wrong in between using the same set of drivers & the same preset file. Just seen this issue with the recent W11 22H2 build recently.Big driver certainly wont help but i dont know if its the real culprit though. 99% certain i have seen others with a similar issue when integrating large drivers. keep large(extracted) drivers outside of the wim using $OEM$ and use garlin's suggestion here.
by using $OEM$ you can regularly update the driver without loading/modifying the wim file.
I'll pm you, I think that would be a better way to discuss this, without cluttering this public thread further with anyone's individual issue.Help me understand, because this preset doesn't tell the same story.
There is no disk layout included. Which means either your ISO folder has an existing autounattend.xml which was created in a earlier pass -- or you're manually selecting the disk every time. You're integrating Intel gfx, but this preset doesn't show the <Drivers> block.
We're going to break this problem down to the simplest.
1. Take the clean 22621 image, make an ISO with no unattend. Boot and stop at the Disk screen. How many partitions does disk 0 have?
2. Take the modded image, make an ISO with no unattend. Boot again, how many partitions does disk 0 have?
The answer should be identical. And if both of them only show one partition, then the last time Setup ran something got messed up.
Possible to run this as an ordinary OS?Microsoft Validation OS is a lightweight, fast, and customizable Windows 11-based operating system that you can use on the factory floor to diagnose, mitigate and repair hardware defects during Windows device manufacturing. Validation OS boots into a Command Line environment to increase reliability on the factory floor and supports running Win32 apps, smoothing the transition from early hardware bring-up to retail OS and apps development.
one thing i noticed some time back when comparing w10 1809(think it was 1809) to its server sibling was that adding/enabling Desktop stuff in the server drastically increased resources that were used and making server no better than a client os. think i could get close to, or as good as(maybe?) a customised V-OS in resources just by disabling services.A quick review of Validation OS:
