    Try windows disk manager.
    Try Windows disk manager to give a letter to the hiiden ventoy partition. And use Widows Explorer.

    That's because Windows 7 only supports the first partition. You need to update to Windows 8.1 at least, I believe.

    After you burn the image to the USB drive, the System folder is already there. Open it. You'll see the Drivers folder. I don't know how else to tell you in plain english. Just go there and look.

    Hi,
    Is it possible to 'install' Medicat.20.08 .img on its own partition of a HDD?
    The idea would be to boot the PC -if and when necessary- from this partition (supposing that W10 is present either on another partition of the disk or on another internal disk).
    If yes, how? The detailed answer is probably quite long but some hints would be welcome.
    Thanks..!

    Thank you @Jayro and @Chansm but my problem is else, as I know where the Drivers folder is and how to access it.
    - For instance I see in this Drivers folder two subfolders : '\Mouse\ELAN Input Device' and '\Mouse\HIDClass'., but no folder for keyboard.
    - While DriverMax has found on my laptop among others : '\Mouse\Hid_device_system_mouse', '\Keyboard\Hid_device_system_keyboard', '\Bluetooth\Usb_vid_0cf3&pid_e303', and 4 subfolders under '\HIDClass'.
    My problem is which folders should I suppress if any, and which should I add .. and for the mouse should I add my '\Mouse\Hid_device_system_mouse' in the existing 'system\Drivers\Mouse\' .. or change the name into 'surfacemouse\..' ... etc. as no attempt I made was successful.

    If you boot up your laptop and run Double Driver, you can export your laptop's drivers into a folder. Then you can put that folder of drivers into the Drivers folder of the USB. That's how I got my drivers there, which you can freely delete if they are of no use to you.

    @Jayro : I did as you said, I replaced in System\Drivers all yours with all those retrieved by Double Driver. But when I select a program ("[UEFI]_Mini_Windows_10.iso"), it boots nicely but still without keyboard, mouse and touchpad. Both in normal and F1 mode.
    See the picture below : is there something wrong ?

    Try booting it up, and when it gets to the desktop, give it a few minutes. Mine takes a full 30 seconds to install the trackpad and wifi drivers. Maybe yours takes a bit.


    No, 18.10 doesn't have the driver loader integrated into the WinPE. You can use EasyDISM to inject drivers directly into the boot.wim

    There isn't a solution for Windows 7, you need to upgrade to Windows 8.1 or 10.

    You can just use this tool by Microsoft to upgrade:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO

    You just run it and it starts the upgrade process. No USB needed.

    Hello there!

    First of, I'd like to thank you Jayro for offering this tool to the world and having consecrated so much time to this project. For someone who envisions to find OS projects to build in their developer life, you're a real source of inspiration. :)

    My friend is trying to recover data from an unbootable partition (due to a corrupt MFT) which was in some way wiped out by chkdsk.
    Their plan is to boot the Windows OS from Medicat 20.06 to get to EaseUS from there (since they only have a Linux partition aside from that), and export them on an external drive to rename/reformat them later if needed.
    But there are a good number of questions which block them on their path:
    - Their OS before the wipeout was Windows 7. Should they boot up specifically on the Windows 7 option for matching purposes or is any other version (8.1, 10) okay for that matter?
    - The size of their partition was 1.3TB and the external drive they plan on exporting it on is only 1TB, but the data previously occupied in there could fit. Will they need a 2TB for that still?
    - Is there a chance that chkdsk makes it so they can't retrieve their data at all?
    - Since the full analysis will probably take them 13 to 18 hours, how does the "progress state recording for later" functionality actually work? And is it fine to use granted that since he won't mount his partition in between uses, his data won't be flying here and there?

    Thanks in advance for your time and answer and have a good day! :)

    I'll be perfectly honest with you, I've never had to deal with a corrupted MFT before, so I'm a little unsure how to approach this... I think if the partition can be mounted, or the entire partition just backed up using something like Acronis or something, the data may be recoverable once it's on another drive. MediCat has EaseUS Partition Master bootable without needing to boot up Mini Windows 10 first, in the Partition_Tools directory.
