    hey mate thank you for every thing you doing i been using your recovery tools since 2013 begging with windows 7 8 then 10
    with w7 we have startup recovery button f7 and separated recovery driver the super perfect one to have all your application install and able to use them after each restore
    with w8.1 no startup key but still you had give us recovery drive was perfect since we had recovery and completing installation with installed application after each restore
    with w10 no startup key and recovery drive no application can get saved and after each restore you have to reinstall the application and some time the driver to
    comparing: windows 7 was 99.99% was same from head to toe as factory installation come from hp dell eg...
    windows 8 and 8.1 were perfect too had recovery every thing were close to factory installation
    windows 10 has no recovery option no startup key you can't save your application all normal windows w10 installation has option to restore option without delete or with date
    while the HP and Dell laptop with factory installed windows come with f11 startup recovery key separated (HP DELL) Recovery drive with most application backup in there
    sir will you able to make it like Windows 7 for Windows 10

    Regard: Seven7i

    1) The part that allows booting the recovery tools when pressing a button (liek F7) was customizable in Windows 7. Starting with Windows 8, Microsoft removed the previous way of doing that. the new method depends onf the manufacturer of the computer to embed, in the UEFI, a boot option that search for boot data on a particuler folder in the UEFI partition. Each manufacturer search in a different place. My current Dell XPS search in "\dell\sos" folder while regular boot search in "\microsoft\boot".

    You could re-use your manufacturer way of calling the boot option if you know the path it use, copy the current boot files there, and modify them with BCDEDIT to boot the Recovery Environment automatically. But you need to know that path. The computer must support it (no chance with Windows 7 era PC or clones), etc. Or you must find a way to modify the UEFI of the computer to use your own path.

    So, basically, I can't do anything for that since it is by desing. Don't forget that my tools is made to use existing stuff on the computer and build around them, not to replace tham which can cause compatibility issue. Also, with the Secure Boot stuff toady, there is not way for me to change any settings in the boot process.

    2) I don't know exactly what you did wrong, but my tools, on all my computer with Windows 10, recover the applications I have installed prior the capture. Also, I have both option to do a "refresh" which basically reinstall Windows 10 + apps + drivers and keep previous file in the Windows.Old folder (or move them in the reinstallation) or to do a clean "reinstall" that completly wipe everything.

    Hi AnarethoS, I would have this need if you can.
    • After SYSPREP and restart PC, OOBE (no generalize) the active Administrator user with access,
    • ask for Active Directory migration,
    • each time you create users install an .exe file only once.

    Is that possible?
