    I use Geek Uninstaller to uninstall all that Windows 10/11 crap.

    Anyone figured out how to remove the forced minimum HDD size during the installer? Demands at least 52Gb which is ridiculous...

    I had this problem too in my laptop so I erase all the disk with this command (before install Win11) : (Pressing Shift+F10)
    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk 0
    clean

    and then I made new partition for Win11 and other things.

    Only 52, it should be 65? I setup the partition size 66666MB, but it is a waste, since my C takes only 15GB and I can not use it for anything else to keep system backups small and my disk is only 500GB, so 50GB totally wasted. :Flush:

    I found an actual solution that max's around 18Gb for minimum. DISM the version you want onto the partition direct from the .wim file.
    Perfectly working, job done.

    When you don't use the original setup there are no special restrictions, like when using the Diskpart & Apply Image script.

    Ridiculous ???
    With 1TB HDD'S 52GB is nothing.

    Use Diskpart & apply image, option 2 in the Win 11 upgrade and boot tool (will put in the bypass for it too).

    DISM was a faster option and didn't need the bypass even though it is "unsupported hardware".

    So just to confirm, no way to get the old right click menu back without going through the new one correct?

    As yet no. They removed the previous tweak to do it some time back. Dislike of the new right click context menus is possibly one of the most discussed features of Win 11 so far, I guess you can only wait to see if things change, or if third party developers do anything to change/edit them.

    I reinstalled Windows Terminal because for some reason it came installed in Japanese, and then the options to open it disappeared from the Start right-click menu. Is there any way I could bring them back?
