    Preliminary testing in VMware worked perfect but I need to test on my real lappy which is oem win 8.1 and check activation which I will do in the next few days. Adding more resolutions to images now.

    @ tcntad...Agreed, Searchengine will be missed and he did a great job on this project.

    cerberus, unfortunately I own only two generic systems (no oem) so that oem-dm thingy I cannot test it. But anything you need in a generic system don't hesitate to reach me...

    Yes it will work with the Surface tablet. I have enabled by default the f8 key function but for your case since it is a tablet you will need to find the bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy >nul and just put :: in front of it to disable that function in the oobe.cmd file...simple so it looks like this...

    That's because it was not entered into that version. That's the old one from searchengine...my updated one I am still working on if you look back a couple pages. ;) oobe.cmd is completed and oem-sync is no more but working on adding more resolution sizes to the background images...will take me some time (over 100 to do, lol).

    Resolution sizes for background images are now...
    -1680X1050
    -1600X1200
    -1920X1200
    -1920X1080
    -1366X768 (default if size not matched just like in searchengines' old project)

    Just so everyone knows the old searchengines' project is not supported anymore by anyone here (searchengine is gone and will be missed). A new updated project is on its way but I must have the time to finish it to my liking first. This will not be my project so to speak but a community effort by everyone here at MDL. Everything is open source now so anyone can pick this project up and update it as needed. This is how it should be I think.

    yes, the old version still works on surface tablet...go for it. lol :) And yes, searchengine is gone...been gone for months now that is why I decided to update the project since no one else wanted to and no one objected.

    Break time is over...back to adding images to the new project. I will check back in later today.

    It's official...I hate resizing images. lol This is going to take some time to complete.

    Looks like M$ will be changing the activation method for win 10. Possible no keys and will use some sort of online password. I am not sure yet about all this but I am sure it will be different considering M$ past OS's with different activations methods for each. Either way we shall cross that bridge when we get to it...lets not jump the gun on win 10 just yet.

    Its a fabulous news that you're taking the responsibility to re-open this project. But as a matter of fact, we face DMCA takedown notices regarding this project. I'm not sure but I suspect that the images & logos are the reasons.

    So I suggest you to include the OEM logos & images in a separate archive or perhaps in some obfuscated manner. ;)

    Well, I think DMCA is targeting the contents. So as long as we publicly 'advertise' about the logos, we are safe.

    well if we wanna be all conspiracy-nut-ish we can also base64 encode that :p

    I was just talking about the auto-targeting based on the contents that might be reported by a bot.
    If the contents are passworded, the bot won't know what's in them.

    When I get this completed and feel it is up to par then I will start a new thread with a new name per Titos' recommendation. Sorry but the image resizing takes time. :(
