    Rufus is a good option to create a bootable USB.

    I am proud to say that MediCat v19.10 is ready for release!

    I'm uploading the files to my file hosts now, and creating torrents in a few minutes.

    Here's a fresh look at the new "Backup and Restore Options" menu!

    Great news !

    Could you update the changelog please ? Thanks
    Another question, If I understand well your picture with different version.

    Now there is two medicat, one for UEFI, one for Legacy Bios.
    If we want to use both, we need to create two USB Key, right ?

    Or I am miss something ? :)

    in anycase, as usual, good job and many thanks for all.

    Yes, you need to use MediCat USB for BIOS booting, and the WinPE for UEFI booting. Changelog coming in the next few minutes. Sorry for any confusion.

    Just in case anyone was curious about what MediCat development looks like, here's a screenshot of my dual-screen workspace. Hoping to jump to a 4K screen next year.

    Thanks for the changelog update Jayro.

    Why this version it's called Analog Edition ? I'm just curious and I know that last time it was because of the 36th anniversary of commodo.

    I'm downloading both version, happy to test it soon !

    It's to be ironic, since "The Grid" is a digital world.

    Hi,

    I've tried to uncompress my Windows 10 ISO files in the Windows 10 folder to try installer.
    Computer boot fine on the installer, but he asks for drivers before to load disk. "A media driver your computer needs is missing, blablabla..."

    If I try same ISO mounted on an USB stick with rufus, no issue.

    If you've ideas...

    Other little question.
    Now that we must created two media (one for BIOS, one for UEFI)

    The process of Rufus installation is the same for both or you need to change soemthing ?

    I mean Partition MBR / Target BIOS (or UEFI-CSM) / File System NTFS

    [QUOTE = "Smexhy, post: 8841802, member: 508891"] Wow, ahora me confundirán qué usar: mini win o solo el menú ... ¿qué recomiendas y cuáles son las posibles ventajas de miniWin además? de una mejor interfaz de usuario? [/ CITA]


    Espero que estés bien .

    1) Si su PC tiene arranque UEFI, DEBE USAR MINI W PE.

    2) Si su PC tiene un arranque seguro dentro del BIOS de la máquina, deberá desactivarlo de antemano.

    3) Su unidad USB debe estar necesariamente formateada en FAT32.

    4) Si tiene una unidad USB de más de 32 gigabytes y desea formatearla en fat32, debe usar una herramienta externa a Windows.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    En mi caso, tengo una PC todo en uno sony vaio.

    Esto presenta el arranque UEFI SOLAMENTE, uso una unidad USB 3.0 de 8 gigabytes formateada en fat32.

    [QUOTE = "UtOpiK, publicación: 8842549, miembro: 448020"] Hola,

    Intenté descomprimir mis archivos ISO de Windows 10 en la carpeta de Windows 10 para probar el instalador.
    La computadora arranca bien en el instalador, pero pide controladores antes de cargar el disco. "Falta un controlador de medios que su computadora necesita, blablabla ..."

    Si intento el mismo ISO montado en una memoria USB con rufus, no hay problema.

    Si tienes ideas ...

    [FUSIONADO] automático [/ FUSIONADO]

    Otra pequeña pregunta.
    Ahora que debemos crear dos medios (uno para BIOS, uno para UEFI)

    ¿El proceso de instalación de Rufus es el mismo para ambos o necesita cambiar algo?

    Me refiero a Partition MBR / Target BIOS (o UEFI-CSM) / File System NTFS [/ QUOTE]



    TENGA EN CUENTA :

    1) Generalmente UEFI --- GPT.

    BIOS, MODO DE HERIDA, CSM, ETC ETC ------ MBR.


    2) Teniendo esto claro, el proceso con rufus es similar.

    The Windows 10 setup in Rufus should be fine using the default settings. And I'm currently working on a UEFI-only version of MediCat, so this legacy booting version can finally die off. This should be the last Syslinux release, if all goes well with my new version. So far, so good.

    will that include all the software in the current medicat? I'd prefer having one version with mini win 10 and all the tools and options.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    will this UEFI only version still have the boot UI? and will it include everything? kinda like a full image? I'd prefer to have everything on the one USB, so i'll probs stick with 18.10 for now.

    The new one I'm working on has almost everything the old one has, with UBCD as an exception because it doesn't support UEFI booting. And one other ISO gave me issues. But has most of everything, and I could even add more if I wanted. It's boot UI will just be GRUB2 and BOOTMGR, but I am making GRUB2 look a bit more nice with a 1920x1080 wallpaper and a medium-sized font. Sadly, BOOTMGR can't be modified to my knowledge.
