    @venejo Check the win-raid forum for usb 3.0 drivers. You can use the pure package(no installer bloatware). Just open device manager, right-click the controller, Update driver, point it to the extracted driver.

    I never used (or seen) drivers from Intel or Gigabyte so all was fine so far from the 1703 build of Win10.
    I've just check the win-raid forum but they are for Windows 7 and not for my 3.2Gen1 usb controller (are for 3.0/3.1 and my ID is not included).
    But still don't wanna use old drivers. Will roll back to an older build of Win10 until this gets fixed, since the next CU will come late because of holidays.

    Is it with me only, or does everyone place a EI.cfg file (to choose edition) in sources prior to installing their ISO ?
    Also,
    for latest Education 20h2 iso should I go with? techbench or the ISOFiles mirror one ( this shows download limit exceeded )

    Why they have different sizes when they're basically the same?
    Version : 10.0.19041
    ServicePack Build : 685
    ServicePack Level : 0

    business_v2004_dec_2020_x64 = 5.01 GB
    business_v20h2_dec_2020_x64 = 5.60 GB

    And two SSUs and some leftovers from the sysprepping/capturing.

    Business vs Consumer .ISO's also have ~200MB size difference. It's not much but any idea why? I assume because Business has less SKU's?!

    That article is one big contradiction, first it happens after upgrading to 20H2 (not mentioning from what build they upgraded), next a screenshot of the help function of chkdsk and then a recap with incoherent info.

    There are several articles across the net. I've simply provided a potential workaround, to avoid any issues that may exist with Chkdsk in 685.

    Depending on where you download your Windows 10 ISO, it may have EF.CFG, product.ini, and ws.dat files in the sources folder. The ws.dat file may very from ISO to ISO, especially if you download the ISO from the MSFT Windows 10 download webpage. Also, varying compression ratios for the boot.wim, winre.wim, and install.wim files can create different ISO file sizes. I think that the key is to have a verifiable hash code to make certain the ISO that you downloaded is genuine.

    Captain Obvious says it's run offline. But not down-version from bootable media. The video is wasted space.
