Humbert: Were you successful in Pure EFI boot through flash drive USB2/3?

No. On my desktop when I put in a flashdrive and reboot using the mobo's boot menu, it gives me the option of using "UEFI:Flashdrive" or just "Flashdrive". So far I have been unable to get any to boot up using the UEFI option. I'm thinking I must be doing something wrong somewhere. Any ideas?

Which ISO are you trying? For starters, use YUMI EFI to install Ubuntu or any Linux distro ISO, Windows 10 installer and Hirens PE. Let me know how it was. Fat32 is a must on YUMI EFI.

Windows 10 Pro x64 RS4 August 2018 SF is being uploaded (7% done). It contains the latest updates as well as the newest Intel Graphics Driver. It will be available tonight. Maher and usman are probably astonished, but with a very slow adsl line, it takes a few hours to upload 3 Gb.
shadow.97 and aa1234779 have probably been looking closely at the latest photos uploaded on the forum. I will add more comments soon.


I found some photos of Bangalore (in hindi Bengaluru?). And it looks incredibly modern. I'm not sure the movie City of Joy with Patrick Swayze could take place in such a town nowadays. Or it wouldn't be the same movie: he would have a role similar to the one of Doctor Mancini in Melrose Place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rmCLPT6XtM
However, I don't see any fields or farms in the photo to feed so many people. Like most towns, I'm afraid the logistics may be highly reliant on oil.


I read that there was an haunted hospital over there: Victoria hospital
This century old hospital located near City Market has been a witness to strange happenings. Ghost sightings have been reported on the premises of this hospital. People have reported incidents in which they’ve claimed to see a white ghostly figure on one of the trees in the hospital compound. But more than wanting to scare people, this ghost seems to be the fun kinds. It is said that packets of food have gone missing. An ever hungry ghost is lurking around here, so keep your food safe if you ever decide to make a trip here.
I imagine an interesting sequel of the movie City of Joy could take place over there. With me as the Parisian financier who got lost in Bengaluru. For some reasons I would be sent to the haunted, ghostly hospital, and an innocent doctor (Vasudev) would be taking care of me, but in the end I would be the one saving the doctor from the ghosts. I guess it would be a mixture of the movies City of Joy and room 1408.

Tonight, windows 10 x64 pro RS4 with the latest updates is available.

As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5 and netfx 4.7.2, dx9 (and 11) and many programs.
It was updated with the August updates, 7zip 18.05, winrar 3.60, Visual C++ Runtime Installer (All-In-One) v56...and the latest drivers.
list of the embedded drivers here: https://justpaste.it/4zlxy
Nothing was removed except the useless recovery file winre.wim and a few obsolete drivers (printers)
Sumatra PDF reader and vlc were added.
Fx sound enhancer was added (full version).
Windows defender is disabled by default.

Link: https://mega.nz/#!VEkkzQSb!kUy270gMpePR9D4VmW2FQBId0A6xQKY5_nXlXhJlmSI
Link for the former edition here: https://ufile.io/kkm0u






Here is office 2007 with most updates, till August 2018 (it’s a switch-less installer).
https://mega.nz/#!zmpCHSzI!NRfwpk_B8zIa515gPIpKQarA3Ry50zuCAk_OcHjiqyc

And here is the MUI pack for office 2007. it includes many languages (notably French, German, italian, Japan, Russian, Arabic). With this pack you can change the user interface language of office 2007 by using the “Microsoft Office 2007 Language Settings”. It's practically impossible to find it today.
https://mega.nz/#!m7JAXCqS!5-SFbd-O4vW3XKiHEE0QU8XNIdR1oIpnc7PcNK8_L3w

Note that office will probably not be updated any more since msft does not release patches for it any longer. It’s bad news since office 2007 is probably the best office ever released.





and here is the link for a switch-less win10 activator
https://ufile.io/rvrjy
I encrypted it but it may still be detected as a virus. Disable your antivirus before executing the exe.
A few seconds later,it’s done.






Here is a link for Windows xp SP3 (an updated, lite version of Maher’s edition which includes every update).
kb4012598 and wmp11 with its updates have been integrated. What’s more, some visual tweaks were applied as you can see on the screenshot below.
Finally, a few unneeded elements were removed (the list is available in the nlite log in the iso file).

Is this the newer, lighter version of Windows 10 1803 you said you were coming out with? I downloaded one a few days ago and I found it somewhat bloated.

Whatever you do, please use the 64bit versions of Sumatra, VLC, and whatever else you put there. And please don't add that Classic Shell garbage, I hate it with a passion.

BTW, is there any other source other than Mega? I hate it when they they want me to use THEIR app to download something. This is exactly what's happening now.

I just looked at the latest version of Yumi and I see no option to use UEFI instead of MBR. This option is available on Rufus, but I'm still having trouble when I select "UEFI flashdrive" from the boot menu on the motherboard.

For some reason I can't get my copy of Windows to update to 1803. The big problem with Windows update isn't so much that it'll push updates by force, but that it'll continue doing so forever even if the update fails and makes no attempt to fix the problem. I had to do the unthinkable - shut off updates entirely using Windows10 Privacy. Let me ask you -- where do you download updates and add them manually?

I might mention that Scarface's copy of Redstone 4 did install. The problem is I have to reinstall all these apps despite the fact that their files weren't deleted during the update process.

I download ISOs from here: https://tb.rg-adguard.net/public.php
Manual updates from here: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4343909
Check W10 update history: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4343909
As for EFI booting, you must use YUMI UEFI BETA version to accomplish true EFI capsule booting via USB drives.
For disabling Win updates permanently use WUMT wrapper script from majorgeeks.
You can download my ISO  or scarface posted to upgrade to 1803(Ether one will do and is much better than MSFT ISO). Do a macrium reflect Image before upgrade.
Simply mount the ISO and do the following:
  • Disconnect from WiFi or ethernet
  • Remove all external accessories
  • Wait for 10-30 mins and let it finish up
  • Install vc++ runtimes & dx runtimes
I recommend sticking with current updates since cumulative updates for 1803 is nearly as large as older releases from 1607,1703 and 1709. On 1803, too many problems than fixes.
I am sticking to 1803 till its EOL.

It is a bit "bloated" indeed. It's the case for the windows 10 enterprise edition too. That's why I put classic shell, you don't see the ads and the games that are installed without your knowing it.I could not stand the tiles too.
In some firms, they are already installing Libreoffice, which is totally free, instead of microsoft office. As for windows 10, I'm sure they are going to lose market shares too.
For the 64 bit version of VLC and sumatra I'm not sure there is a big difference, I'll look at that later.



Note that the movie Morgan is available on the forum: http://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=1023.msg29422#msg29422
PS: the movie is a bit violent, and not meant for most users of the forum.
