    AFAIK, the ADK wims are plain without any optional packages, just the base WinPE-Package and LP
    while boot.wim contain at least WMI, SRT, Scripting, SecureStartup, WDS, EnhancedStorage,

    Yes, but even when both have the same packages (ADK-boot.wim and "non-ADK" one), the ADK version is still more compact, the registry hives are "cleaner", etc. (less clutter in the \CONFIG folder, etc.).
    Also, ADK boot.wims smell nicer :)

    I rather and used to use a "scratch" dir when adding packages just like drivers and updates.
    Now I'm just setting editions so I wonder whether I can use a "scratch dir" here as well:
    Code:
    imagex /mountrw W:\INSTALL_WIM\install.wim 2 W:\MOUNT
    DISM /Image:W:\MOUNT /Set-Edition:ProfessionalEducation
    imagex /commit /append W:\MOUNT ProfessionalEducation
    imagex /unmount W:\MOUNT
    
    If so, what's the syntax?
    Scratch dir is:
    Code:
    W:\SCRATCH
    What I really mean to achieve is to avoid C:\Windows\Temp dir at all cost...

    Code:
    DISM /ScratchDir:W:\SCRATCH /Image:W:\MOUNT /Set-Edition:ProfessionalEducation
    the folder should already exist

    it mostly needed when adding packages

    Hi, I do not know if this is the right place to post my doubts, but here I go after I update my OS until this moment, I have to custom check what each update does/change / removes. I found a (installed by WU but not in the Catalog) that puzzled me in this way I would like if someone could give me a "light" on this strange update reminding that I am running the W10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB x64; I discovered this on the Windows Help website, that's where it got more complicated, believe me.:confused::rolleyes:
    KB4033631 x64 & KB3125217 x64 (with 2 files inside?)

    I was thinking today this is a great feature. For me it helps a lot for easy reading just leaving the colon punctuation just for drives letter + paths (directories).
    Gonna change my scripts asap.

    Thanks once more @abbodi1406

    Does anyone have the latest "Win 10 Default Manufacturing Keys.pdf" for 1809?
    I'm wondering if it includes default OA3 key & default COA key for Professional Workstation.
    I've only seen Retail & Volume in my online search... Thanks.

    Hi all ,
    İ have created a folder like $OEM$\$$\Panther and i put my unattend.xml in Panther folder.. Now it looks like as $OEM$\$$\Panther\Unattend.xml
    After that , i placed $OEM$ folder in sources folder on removable media like D:\sources\$OEM$\$$\Panther\Unattend.xml
    When i started the installation , windows did not copy the unattended.xml to C:\Windows\Panter and the unattended installation was not successful

    I changed the name of the unattend.xml to Autounattend.xml and placed it in the root of the removable media and started installation and installaltion went smooth till the end.

    what am i doing wrong in the first case ?
    Thank you
