Today, windows 10 x64 pro Redstone 5 v1809 (with the March updates) is available.
For Vasudev who is waiting for windows 7, I'll release an extra lite edition later.


As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5, netfx 4.7.2, dx9 (and 12) and many programs.
Note: in this edition you'll find much more programs like vlc, firefox, handbrake, silverlight, cdisplay (custom made edition of SF), Sumatra, Flashplayer+schockwave...
It's also activated by default.
Nothing was deleted in winsxs and to obtain such a size, install.wim was converted into esd.
As usual, It also contains 7zip 19.00, winrar 3.70, Treesize free, subtitles edit, Visual C++ Redist...and the latest drivers.
list of the embedded drivers here (to be updated): https://justpaste.it/6golp
Nothing was removed except the useless recovery file winre.wim (but a script was run to remove the useless appx and provisioned packages. Hopefully they won't come back since the registry was updated too).
Fx sound enhancer was added (full version).
Windows defender is disabled by default but can be re-enabled again via gpedit.msc.

only 3.39 Gb
Link: soon




and here is the link for a switch-less win10 activator (encrypted & automatic).
I encrypted it to store it more easily since some antivirus detect it as a virus. Disable your antivirus before executing the exe (it’s not a virus).
A few seconds later,it’s done.

Note that an updated repack of the latest version of Dishonored 2 will be available later this month. The decompression will be more reliable too.
Too bad I'm on Redstone 6 19H1. I'm waiting for your extra lite W7. I deleted my W7 ISO. Hahahaa....

Can this be installed over an older version of Windows 10?
I never tested that but you should be able to install it over a previous version.

How did you manage this? Does that mean you don't have to rearm it?
Some apps are installed during install. But you have to rearm it every 6 months. Otherwise you'll have a watermark...

Tonight, windows 7 x64 Professional SP1 extra lite Tunisia edition with the latest updates is available.

Some users of the forum like Vasudev were eagerly waiting for it.
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 March 2019 updates, 7zip 19.00, winrar 3.70 full, Visual C++ Redist...
Unlike previous versions, there are no new drivers in this version.
The useless recovery file winre.wim and a few obsolete drivers (printers, mdm, wia) were deleted.
Fx sound enhancer was added (full version).
Note that harkaz's rebase was used to make it lighter (extreme cleanup). The program is available in %systemdrive% (at a time it wasn't free but harkaz may still find a donation useful, I advise you to contact him). Some useless content was also removed in the winsxs folder. It may cause problems for the future updates.

Only 2.63Gb

If you have activation problems: https://mega.nz/#!PXZHTIzB!QUp86oPcQJkj4dBgctKa7aQB9KjlAHpjUblN6yUWr2E



Note that you can still download xp here (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).
Link: https://mega.nz/#!8NUmVCaQ!PzrY8hsTD5XRV8OoNaczvqxIqr_eOOxhHN8_obmbeqM




And 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.

Its advisable to ditch Winrar in favor of 7-zip because most users never update apps or windows.
I'll download it right away.
I didn't watch the movie called Look Away, its pretty scary to watch at night!!!!

I use winrar so winrar will stay. What's more you can't compress in rar with 7zip.


Note that a new, updated (Game version is v1.77.9) repack of Dishonored 2 is currently uploaded for the forum. It's a bit bigger than the previous version (19.2 Gb vs 17.4 GB) but there is no more decompression problem. It will be available by the end of the week.

Vasu -> Why do you prefer 7z over Winrar? I have the cracked version of Winrar 5.70 - it's fast and it works great. I ask because I haven't tested 7z and I wonder what an apples-to-apples comparison looks like. When I have to open a 7z file I use Total Commander's 7z plugin, but Winrar could easily open them too.

@scarface:If you use rar then WinRAR is the best. I switched to 7z format long time and 7zip can open a lot of linux and windows files easily and even a  Linux version can do the same and I prefer cross platform compatibility and performance.
@humbert:
I never used Winrar!

I'm not claiming to be the best.

Both programs are included in the SF windows 10 anyway, I don't know what the fuss is all about.

Note that the development of an home-made windows 10 Pro x64 lite v1903 is currently under way. A new version will be available soon.

I'm already on 1903 insider 18862 and there are few bugs pending, System > Apps crashes settings app and lot of minor UI inconsistencies.

@scarface: Doesn't ESD tax the CPU while compressing/decompressing on low end PCs?
Why don't you use NTLite to remove UWP apps and save 1GB per edition?

Maybe. But do you have a better alternative to have a small version?

I'm already using a script (available below) in powershell. I don't think I could delete more apps without breaking the system. Most are system critical or in place to support other apps or the possibility of other apps being installed

Code: [Select]
Import-Module AppX
Import-Module Dism
