    if you are either using the emulator or real hardware if you press F1 (Fn+F1 on some systems) a little debug menu appears

    I got it working from that tutorial! It's definitely buggy, and I haven't installed any drivers or anything yet, but I am working on it!
    For those who plan to try, the tutorial adds a lot of extra steps that aren't particularly necessary, so this is what I recommend.
    1. Create a USB install media of Windows 10 as it says in the tutorial. I don't think the version matters as you only need it to access the command prompt and run commands.
    2. Add the gdisk64.exe and ddrelease64.exe linked in the original tutorial, and place them on the root of your install media
    3. Start the tutorial from the Target Work section, and follow the steps accounting for your setup. When it asks to use the utilities from above, you can still access them just like you would from the command prompt.

    Important:
    1. If the copy fails when you use ddrelease64 when it's almost finished, don't worry. Go ahead and finish the tutorial as normal. It will still boot and work normally, I have yet to run into issues.
    2. After booting, USB support did work just fine for me, and although your mileage may vary, I would be willing to bet that it will work just fine for you as well, being that it works just fine on Win10 OOB.

    Let me know if you have any questions, I'll try to help as best I can!

    Can you easily switch back to another OS ? Reading the guides here & then makes it look like it might be an issue.

    I tried to follow the guide yesterday but couldn't integrate my graphic driver so i gave up after a while.
    (Multiple manufacturer names & i couldn't find one that would work )

    [Manufacturer]

    %Intel% = IntelGfx, NTamd64.6.1, NTamd64.6.2, NTamd64.6.3, NTamd64.10.0

    Can you also do the steps in a virtual machine? I don't have any 'modern enough' testing hardware I can install this on.

    I would imagine it's possible, but if it is, I'm not sure how. The tutorial details through wiping the drive and installing 10X as the sole OS.
    My best guess is that you could probably open computer management and create another partition for regular Win10 if you wanted.

    Again, I'm sure this is possible, however, I did this on a separate machine, so I wouldn't know for certain.
    It's would be the same process though. I would give it a shot and see if it works! Because it's a VM, there's little to no risk, so I say try it!

    What i meant is that some people on twitter say that they can't even boot into the windows installer or anything other that W10X after installing it.

    Once you boot Windows 10X at least once, it creates an EFI variable called "SecureBootPlatformID", and sets the value of said variable to "WCOSCDG". This variable prevents regular Windows 10 from booting, and must be removed in order to boot regular Windows again.

    There's a brand new File Explorer app hiding in WindowsApps, It appears it can even be launched from Device Portal. MicrosoftWindows.WCOSCDG.Proto_cw5n1h2txyewy is the PFN.

    I already managed to install it on a VM but i got a black screen and the mouse only.
    any idea what i have made wrong?

    I only made this steps:
    "2. Add the gdisk64.exe and ddrelease64.exe linked in the original tutorial, and place them on the root of your install media
    3. Start the tutorial from the Target Work section, and follow the steps accounting for your setup. When it asks to use the utilities from above, you can still access them just like you would from the command prompt."

    So booting to EFI, deactivating secureboot & booting on something else would work as well, right ?



    Apart from that, does anyone understand the process to add the drivers ?

    I can't get this to work.

    For my video driver, i have :

    Provider=%Intel%

    DriverVer=03/28/2017,20.19.15.4642

    with

    %Intel% = IntelGfx, NTamd64.6.1, NTamd64.6.2, NTamd64.6.3, NTamd64.10.0

    So i'm trying
    updateapp install "DriverPackage|D:\igdlh64.inf|IntelGfx-igdlh64.inf~amd64~20.19.15.4642~bsp|0"

    But it fails.
