    Hi @Jayro,
    First, like everyone else, I'd like to personnaly thank you

    Next, I totally agree with @Gummybear Defender got me once, now I'm being carefull, but it would be nice if a workaround could be find.

    I also would like to "push" a request:
    So far, I used a custom Windows 10 PE with a special "WinFe Protect Toolkit". This tool allows the user to select whitch hard drives from the machine he would like to mount, and specify if he wants them on "read/write", or "read-only".
    However, my WinPE is not very stable unlike yours.
    In my opinion, it is the only feature missing to your toolkit.

    What do you think about it?
    Could this be implemented on a future release?
    Can you figure out of something easy to settle by th end user?

    Sorry to burden mate.
    Again, thank you for this precious toolkit

    If .NET 4.5 is included in the Mini Windows 10 you can use a PowerShell script: https://stackoverflow.com/questions...windows-built-in-capabiliti/26843122#26843122
    Alternatively you could use 7-zip, either as a SFX (self extracting executable) with the program set to autorun after extraction or just bundling 7z.exe/7z.dll itself and using batch scripts that call it with the right parameters and run the exe.

    I like the 7zip sfx approach, it sounds the easiest by far. I might even package a few apps at a time within the WinPE environment just to make sure they work properly as I go.

    I'm going with a "heavily TRON-inspired" theme for the next MediCat release, due out in late April.
    I will be at a convention in Seattle's Convention Center between April 18th-22nd (if anyone cares) when Lubuntu drops, but I will be able to release MediCat v19.04 stable when I get home.

    Main Menu.

    (All artwork made by me 100% from scratch within Photoshop's tools. Fonts used are "TR2N" and "Flynn", both freeware fonts.)

    If I wanted to add Bit Defender Rescue CD to MediCat can I just drag and drop the .iso file into the ISO folder or do I need to do something else? Keep up the great work. Looking forward to the next release

    You do that, and then edit main_menu.cfg to add the new entry to the menu.

    Damn, that was super straight forward! Would it also work with a Windows ISO, so Windows can be installed onto the computer and YUMI isn't needed to add it separately? And can I add the ISOs to a USB already configured with Medicat?

    It's best that MediCat isn't used in a Multiboot USB, because it breaks a lot of boot paths and PortableApps don't work right. I also recommend using a separate USB for installing Windows, since MediCat doesn't boot up via UEFI, which is how most people install it.

    Thanks Jayro for this ! I used to use Knoppix for that but i found HBCD that was pretty promising but I gotta admit , Medicat is way better , everything in reach and installed on a 16GB Pendrive.
    That's all I asked for because I was planning to do a multi-iso bootable drive before remembering that medicat existed !

    That happens when your BIOS is set to boot in UEFI mode. To get the full MediCat menu, you have to set your BIOS for Legacy mode.

    Hey Jayro forgive me if this has already been asked but have you considered throwing the .iso into a .7z archive? I was able to shave a solid 5GB off doing that (had to, to bypass OneDrive 15GB file size limitation).
