Note that I'm going to make a Nsis installer for Easeus partition master since I think there is no way to hack the installer to prevent it from displaying a web page at the end of the silent installation. I will try to do it for the version 13.8.
If possible, it will be available in the next version of windows 10 x64.

If you are looking for good versions of windows 10x64 and 7x64, I think you can already test the ones available in this topic. Note that the next version of windows 10x64 will include a few updates: subtitles edit 3.5.13, the latest flash player, if possible an activated version of easeus partition master 13.8 (it would be a light version without the "useless" winpe creation tool), and maybe xxcopy.


Note that I will try to make an update for the frictionalgames AIO repack that could be below 8 Gb.

If there is freedos, there the hard drive is not clean. Freedos is some kind of Ms-Dos. Basically, you can’t run anyhting with it. But you can install Linux, or windows.

That you can install Windows from Freedos makes sense, but Linux? I install distros of Linux by booting from a flashdrive. If there is a Dos program that can run a Linux executable installation program, I don't know about it. I'm also assuming installations of Windows or Linux would overwrite Freedos. What is the point of having a separate Dos partition?

You always speak with the wisdom of the lion. I wish I could be with you and some users of the forum in a remote place.

Thanks. It would really be nice to meet you guys in person. Sadly at this point this would require teleportation, just like in Star Trek.  :(

I don’t understand why laptops are more expensive than 5 years ago. My current laptop with a i7 9750h (instead of a i7 6700hq), a newer graphics card, and a ssd (I already have one) is now  more expensive. Note that originally, I had only 8Gb Ram, I added a ram bar. As long as my laptop is working, I’m going to wait.

Really? Here in the USA a high end laptop is about $1000. This has been the case for quite a while now.

Didn't know you got 9750h based laptop. 6700hq is becoming dated and feels ancient after applying new BIOS patches.
I didn't. I said a computer with a i7 9750h (instead of a i7 6700hq), and a recent card (GTX 1660 Ti instead of GTX 960) is  more expensive than my computer bought 5 years ago.
In fact, for the same price, I would get a i7 8750h and a nvidia gtx 1060 (a msi shipped with freedos...)
Here it's 50-60% more expensive than my current laptop (~2500-3000USD + Taxes/VAT).

The computer I'd want to buy costs 1400€. Since my computer is still working, I'm just waiting. For 1000€, I have practically the same machine (i7 8750h vs i7 6700hq and 1060 GTX instead of 960 GTX). I don't know what you currently have, but for 2200€, you can get a good computer here (for example, an Alienware M17 R2 17.3" with i7 9750h, 16 Go RAM, 1 To SSD, RTX 2050...).
Actually, I don't need this since I wouldn't know what to do with an internal 1 TO SSD (I use a small internal SSD on mine, plus an external 1TO SSD for storage), and a GTX 1660 would be enough.
For the moment, computers with a i7 9750h are sill too expensive.

For the equivalent of $2200€ you can probably get a Core i9 with all the trimmings, or a 16-core AMD Threadripper. So far my i7-4790K and GTX-970 do the job quite well, even with Diablo III (the game I usually play). If I were a hard core gamer I'd look into something a little better than what I have. It's not that I don't like games, it's mostly the learning curve and lack of time. I've been playing Diablo since it first came out back in the 1990's.

With respect to SSD's, always go for the largest size even if you don't use all the space. Remeber how they work and their limited number of read-write cycles. More space = more read-writes.

This is the cheapest computer equipped with a intel i9 I found (2800€): https://www.fnac.com/PC-Portable-Dell-Alienware-Area-51m-17-3-Intel-Core-i9-16-Go-RAM-1-To-SATA-512-Go-SSD/a13424400/w-4
It's twice as expensive as a computer with a i7 9750h. I don't need this anyway. I'm like you, with a gtx960, I can already do what I want. I don't play games a lot though. I tried Dishonored 2 with the best settings, it works. I don't know Diablo but it looks a bit old indeed.

Here for the equivalent of $2800€ you could probably get a quantum computer. :)

Actually it's not. The game was initially released in 2012 and is constantly being upgraded constantly. It was upgraded to 64 bit about 2 years ago. The last major upgrade was $20 for those who already have the game. You must be online and connected to Blizzard's servers even if you're playing by yourself. It it VERY graphics intensive, there are explosions, fires, smoke and debris flying around, and all this in 4K.

Never buy AW junk ever!!! They messed with firmware and limited all possible overclocks and performance. Its thanks to Prema my AW can run at max speed w/o firmware pulling the performance of CPU to 800MHz and GPU to be 650MHz during heavy loads.

Uh.. You should check the internal powercable.
Those are the EXACT symptoms i had when it had melted internally.
I ended up getting a full refund for it.
