    Hello Guys, question. Is there no way to bypass automatic upgrades in dev channel when you do not have TPM?

    The solution will always be to clean install again?

    Struggling with the Win 11 Boot And Upgrade FiX KiT v2.1.
    Placed a win10 iso in the w10 folder.
    Placed a win11 iso in the w11 folder (this iso downloaded from MS official site)
    Started the v.2.1.cmd
    Some files (ttf, gif, man, etc) "can not open the file as archive"
    After a looong session, a lot of errors with, and then abort with the work-folder as shown.
    Am I having trouble with permissions ?
    Should the w10 and w11 folders only contain the iso, or also the extracted files from the iso ?
    Something I have missed ?
    Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

    I just tested with option 1 and no issue. Yes, the W10 and Win11 folders sould only contain the iso and not the extracted files; only one iso should be contained by the respective folders. The script is executed with admin privileges.

    ================================================================================
    Select the desired FiX...
    ================================================================================
    
    [ 1 ] - Puts the Win 11 install.wim/esd in a Win 10 ISO (Provide a Win 10 ISO in the "Source_ISO\W10\" Folder)
    This method is usefull for clean installs from boot, using the standard W10 setup. A generic EI.CFG file will
    be copied to the sources folder.
    
    [ 2 ] - Integrate Diskpart & Apply Image script (v1.3.1), modify boot.wim to skip the SB, RAM, DiskSize and TPM 2.0 check
    and replace "appraiserres.dll" with one from a 1703 ISO. A generic EI.CFG file will be copied to the sources folder.
    Newly added to be able to upgrade without having to disable the (w)lan for upgrading scenarios is "UFWS" cmd in root of ISO.
    
    This method enables you to:
    - Use the standard Win 11 setup for clean installs on devices without Secure Boot and TPM 2.0 and low amount of DiskSize & RAM.
    - Use the alternative Diskpart & Apply Image installation script for clean installs.
    - Circumvent "TPM 2.0 is required" error when (inplace) upgrading.
    - Enables to install on LegacyBIOS/MBR only systems.
    - Circumvents the 64GB (52GB) minimum disk size check.
    
    UFWS is a cmd that can be run (as admin) for ISO upgrades. It copies the setup files excluding appraiserres.dll, setuphost.exe and
    install.wim/esd. So now you can keep your install connected during upgrade setup.

    @Enthousiast : I would like to suggest some esthetic changes...
    maybe all single files (appraiserress.dll, ei.cfg, ufws and maybe Murphy´s script) could be moved to a single folder called "files" (or something like that) instead of having various individual foders containing a single file
    anyways, thanks for the hard work to all of you involved in develop this usefull tools!!!

    Thanks to rpo who replied:
    "I just tested with option 1 and no issue. Yes, the W10 and Win11 folders sould only contain the iso and not the extracted files; only one iso should be contained by the respective folders. The script is executed with admin privileges."
    SOLVED (partly):
    1. Deleted the unfinished work.folder.
    2. Deleted all extracted files in w10 and w11 folders, kept only the iso.
    3. Ran the fix-script as admin (clumsy mistake on my part in the first instance,did not execute as admin
    where the script ran for 20 min with a lot of errors before aborting.
    4. Both option1 and 2 executed now very fast and without problems. Great !
    Unfortunately one problem remains, the booted DVD with the fixed iso asks for driver for the ocz revodrive.
    Searching for driver from HDD where the ocz-driverfiles were used for previous win 10 install.
    Finds and accepts driver (have ticked the option for display of only accepted driver).
    "Next", and driver NOT accepted. First accepted, then not accepted !
    Roughly translated from norwegian, it says: "Cannot find new drivers. Check if media contains rigth driverers and click ok-"
    Cannot proceed further with the install, no way to skip drivers for the revodrive. Only way I can find is to take out the revo,
    install on hdd, then re-install the revo with drivers, and clone the whole thing back to the revo. A bit clumsy.
    Sorry for not being able to attatch a good screen dump, a security mess popped up,. file too large.
    But some parts of the screen seen below.
    Sorry also for being a bit rusty at present, many things are rusty at my age (85 nest week).
    Hoping for some good advice.

    There are no files extracted to the "Source_ISO\Win11 or Win10" folders.
    It auto-elevates to admin rights, and should just run for a minute tops.
    Drivers is not the function of the fix script.

    Thanks to rpo again. Seems case is now SOLVED:
    1. The FIX-script2.1 option 1 produced iso file: Win10_With_22000.258_x64_nb-NO_install.esd_2021-10-28.iso
    2. Created bootable flash drive with this file via rufus.
    3. Booted flash drive, and I was presented with choice of windows version, then clean install or upgrade,
    accept lterms, etc etc. Selected win11 pro, clean install, and install went just fine !
    Driver selection went fine (driver for the revodrive), accepted and installed
    4. Checked for updates, found some, and they were installed fine !
    5. Final reboot, then Checked windows version =: windows 11 21H2 2000.258
    6. Checked activation = ok digital licence.
    7. Tried again to burn a DVD with same file as did with rufus for the flash drive.(using imgburn)
    8. Booted the DVd, it starts ok with language selection. Next, "starting instalIation"
    Next, it goes directly to search for driver. NOT choice of windows version as when booting from flash drive !!!!!!
    And driver selction fails as mentioned before.
    Conclusion: All is well using flash drive boot, but NOT well using DVD boot !!!!
    Difference in behaviour not due to the FIX-script or what ?
    Could the difference be caused by some MS-bug/problem or what ?
    Should the FIX-script have a warning = do not use DVD burning ?
    What do the MDL-experts think of this peculiar behaviour ?

    i think, currently burning a dvd to do a windows install is an obsolete method, but i remember a very very long time ago, i was adviced to burn the dvd media at slowest speed available to avoid data burning errors. maybe it is your issue
