    I've got a Redstone build of Mini Windows 10 up and running (version 10.0.14393). Progress is good so far. (DON'T GET TOO EXCITED, I'M NOT RELEASING IT YET)

    Jayro, at first I would like to thank you for this great work. Finally, one great tool for all needed tasks.
    I there a way to change the keyboard layout in the Windows 10 Mini Environment. As I am from germany, it is a little hazzle typing on a non qwerty keyboard? The language options are all greyed out.... Or how do i customizye the Win10 Mini files...

    Sorry if this was already asked, but what's the difference between this and pendrivelinux? Just curious which one I should use.

    I have only tested it with Rufus, I have not tested this with PendriveLinux/YUMI, but it should work with the right settings.

    Hey Jayro, i got an idea to help make things easier when it comes to uploading MediCat, what if you setup Syncthing on an server or something so that others can help off load the bandwidth needed to download. i have an VPS laying around that i dont use and i will offer to set it up if needed.

    Hey Jayro,

    Couple of questions. If there somewhere on the image I can stick new drivers? Not the biggest issue but it's a bit of a pain but manually installing the network drivers is a bit of a pain when I need to get through a dozen computers in a day.
    Second is it possible to add my own files (ie a batch file).

    Cheers.

    Does this happen to have some sort of anti malware suit?

    How about UBCD live?

    Xubuntu core solves this issue, maybe you could consider it?

    Been away for a while ( since April)..... Is there a setup instuctions file? I note that you have the Rufus installer in the directory, perhaps 7zip would also be a good addition? I note there are multiple files in the DVD directory... How do we put them together?? Or is that what is supposed to done? I apologize if this has been asked before....
    Update I am trying to extract them all now.... that being said is there a reason that you do not upload the single .iso file?

    This is so cool. I've never seen A Mini Windows 10 OS before. This will help me out!

    Splitting the large ISO file up into smaller chunks was done to make downloading easier for people on slower connections, since the ISO is about 7GB unzipped. I'll consider using a self-extracting .exe installer going forward. I just need to experiment with 7zip. All you need to do is open the file that ends with .001 with 7zip, and extract the ISO. 7zip will do the rest by itself. Each file is hashed, so if one chunk of the download is corrupt, you don't have to re-download all 7GB, only a 1GB file.

    I ended up adding UBCD in the current release.


    Use Rufus. It's in the download directory. 7Zip extracts the .ISO image. The Download folders even tell
    you to use 7zip to open them.

    You tell me:
