    I keep %WinDir%\Setup folder after deploy, it's not forgotten, it's by design :)

    I haven't tested latest Windows 11 with POWIS yet.

    /noreboot switch is here to do not reboot after original setup does it's job. Reboot is done in setup.cmd.

    Btw, this tool needs upgrade too as I have written POWIS Launcher, but maybe in future. I'm currently focused on other projects. But I promisse I will update POWIS to v1.1 somewhere in 1Q 2023

    for windows 11 part, hmm…
    what could be changed is some (auto unattended) oobe stuff, idk

    now i finally and completely got what you mean when you say “vista2esd releases late 4q of 2022”
    it means it will release somewhere around december or even around christmas
    and for powis, will release sometime of january-march of 2023 (?)

    @George King

    Made it a sticky.

    Do you want me to move to the MDL Projects and Applications section?

    what’s going to happen for windows vista & 7 support for powis (own project, not anything2esd) once vista2esd and seven2esd get released?
    split up support for windows vista & 7 to each individual project (like xp2esd, it’s own project and also more up to date), leaving windows 8-11 the only supported ones for this central project, or keep those 2 OS in this central project (but no updater such as update pack for vista (vista2esd) and updatepack7r2)?
    i’d like to think powis and all other xxxx2esd projects could be able get merged into one huge project, with many, MANY modifications (e.g. each individual script, or customizable file to disable updating and os type or if there’s some other programmer, even a gui or something like @Dir3ctr1x script menu + appearance e.g. EZWindSLIC/SimpliSeven)
    since i heard it powis launcher support from xp-10/11
    and if the merging is true, then something to threads must be done

    to clear things up, when i say what’s happening to support, i say this classic standalone powis support for those 2 nt6.0/6.1 os

    POWIS crashes with "1 was unexpected at this time." after extracting the ISO.

    Hi, Thank's in advanced for your great work. @George King

    I want to ask if is possible to have multiple installers example: Firefox in multiple Language (firefox-eng-x64.exe, firefox-de-x64.exe, firefox-fr-x64.exe ...) because of Multilanguage iso support and choose in function of the language from RunOnceEx the right setup language file and Arch?

    Mr King is present on the NTLite forum and in the project.
    And strangely there is no answer there either, Mr King has disappeared...
    We really need such a script, but I think it should be updated.
    Maybe it won't be anymore.(?)

    new xp2esd setup process (installation) appears better than this old project; it can do many things besides integrate/inject compatible drivers for windows xp

    well... no answer?
    Honestly everyone is talking about Sysprep. i have no idea what it is :)
    I am not impatient, but I would like to use POWIS normally.

    :eek: :oops:
    Well, like I said I have no idea what it is, but the error is in the sysprep window. i have screen shots uploaded here,
    only in Hungarian, but in the title bar of the window there is the english name
    See above in "SPOILER4".
    It says: "A fatal error occurred while preparing the computer with sysprep."
    See above under "SPOILER4".
    It says: "A fatal error occurred while preparing the computer using sysprep."

    This was because I clicked OK in the "SPOILER3" window
    It says: Header "System Preparation Wizard"
    It says sysprep prepares the computer for hardware independence and maintenance.

    I mean if I don't click anything, nothing happens, everything stays as shown in the picture. So I had to click to move on.
