    You also said that you compressed the Wim.

    Any complete guide?

    DISM Gui?


    Thank you

    I use EasyDISM, but DISM GUI should work too.

    I'll try.
    Thanks.

    This seems to download any DISM missing file.
    DISM GUI not inserting Drivers, but I think it's a W7 Home Premium limitation.

    thanks!
    However I see a slight drawback: this package is, unlike HBCD or UBCD, incompatible with the current automated multiboot builders which are AFAIK: Yumi and AIO.
    Good package only if used as the only one on the drive...

    Would you mind providing some clues about how to update the different cfg files so we can add more ISOs?
    thanks

    You can edit any of the .cfg files in Notepad or Notepad++ to add more distros.

    You have to launch it from BIOS/CSM mode and not EFI. EFI is default on most computers nowadays.

    Was attempting to install Lubuntu for the first time today using my medicat stick and ended up getting a "Installation Failed - Bad source: cdrom/casper/filesystem.squash"

    Rewriting my drive in case there was an issue there. Anyone know of any other potential issues?

    here idk
    I love the UI. It's cute and simple. Finally have a good go-to USB for fixing things!

    I had to make a copy of it on my Google Drive to download it, though. Mega has a 5GB/6hr limit, and Google Drive said "the download quota was exceeded." Good thing I have a Google account without the 15 GB limit.
    Or I suppose I could have just figured out torrents, but I really didn't feel like it.

    Torrenting is simple, you just install a client app like qBittorrent, and then it downloads like magic

    Medicat is fully compatible with uefi.

    I have a sony vaio all in one, uefi - gpt and medicat starts very well.

    You will simply have the restrictions of GPT.

    That's good to know. I thought I read somewhere on this thread that it wasn't.

    I know I'm eagerly awaiting the "April" release. It's by far the best repair/support distro out there, so keep up the great work Jayro xD

    I'm in the final stages of updating portable applications, it takes a while since I have to do each one manually and record the changes to the changelog while doing so. Life is slowing down for me, so I can focus on the new release more. ^_^

    i may be reading this wrong, but are you having issues getting medicat on a multiboot stick? i was able to get it on yumi just fine. it shows up other "other os/tools" in the recent yumi app. although, it also says (must use NTFS format).

    my apologies if im completely wrong about what you said though :)

    Apps Suggestions:
    To be added to the default PortableApps, or maybe, open a new thread to share helpful Apps and link it from this thread.


    Launchy: App Launcher.
    Light and fast App Launcher.
    Instead of opening PortableApps launcher or Windows menu, just Alt+Space.


    PangoBright: Bright regulation.
    On my Laptop and another tested, there's no option to change bright screen from Live Windows, PangoBright can work this around.

    PS: Or is there something to add as Linux has on Live's OS's and skip Pango?


    ClipX: Clipboard manager.
    Light and customizable, even with Stickies.



    All they are free and works fine on a Portable environment.



    Thank you.
