Yeah its 80:20 usage on all my laptops. I use windows 10 for gaming, ms office only!

There is no question that most distros of Linux run better than Windows. Sadly there is terrible lack of support, and in many cases they're not as configurable. If you have a 4K screen as I do on my desktop, most distros have no way to run a hi-dpi configuration. You need a magnifying glass to read anything. Also, the constant and incessant password prompt cannot be totally turned off. No matter how much you try to tell developers that many people don't really need it and to make it optional, they are intransigent and will force you to use it regardless.

As for running Windows as a VM under a distro of Linux, you could easily get away with MS Office. But a hi-powered game -- forget it! Sure, you can easily play Solitaire, but don't even try to play Call of Duty. I realize many games have been ported to Linux. The only problem is the gamers mouse won't work -- no Linux support from the manufacturer, at least not from Logitech.

Note that I have been arrested by the confinement police, I was driving my car. Since I had no attestation, they gave me a fine.

Back briefly to the "pandemic" garbage, don't feel like starting a new topic.

Believe it or not, I'm watching a LIVE football game on TV as we speak. The Costa Rican football association did a wise thing -- they've reopened for business, TV coverage only. There is not a soul in the stands. Wouldn't it be nice if all sports leagues did the same thing? It's certainly better than the current full stop on all competition, and they would slowly get ready to fully reopen once all this nonsense ends. You can't go from a full stop to full competition in a single day.

Tonight, windows 10 x64 pro v2004 with every update till June 2020 is available ("20H1" for Vasudev)


As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5, netfx 4.8, dx9 (and 12) and many programs.
Note: in this edition you'll find many more programs like the latest releases of vlc, firefox, handbrake, cdisplay, Sumatra, Flashplayer, 7zip 19.00, winrar 5.90, Treesize free, Visual C++ Redist, the game "Mastermind" and Ultraiso (full version), Subtitles Edit v3.5.16...
Fx sound enhancer v13.028 was added (full version).

HDD programs: HDD low level format, HD tune pro.

New:
Updated programs:  vlc 3.0.10, Treesize Free

This version of windows 10 is activated by default.

Nothing was deleted in winsxs and to obtain such a size, install.wim was converted into esd.

New drivers:
Realtek RTL8723BE WLAN 2024.0.10.211, Alcor1.17.13.2300, LAN_Killerwin10_2.2.3212, Synaptics19.3.4.193, PCI-bus-AMD-15.301.0.0, Elan-smbus-driver-15.2.10.1, intel_chipset_10.1.18263.8193, RadioBtn_Win10v1.1.8.0,

Note that the intel graphics drivers are not integrated any more.


Windows defender is disabled by default but can be re-enabled again via gpedit.msc.
Note that the new feature Windows Defender Tamper protection was deactivated too.





In the previous versions a script was run to remove the useless appx and provisioned packages. It wasn't used in this version.
Here is the script previously used to remove provisioned apps (the "Sysprep" switch was used).
Code: [Select]
#This function finds any AppX/AppXProvisioned package and uninstalls it, except for Freshpaint, Windows Calculator, Windows Store, and Windows Photos.
#Also, to note - This does NOT remove essential system services/software/etc such as .NET framework installations, Cortana, Edge, etc.

#This is the switch parameter for running this script as a 'silent' script, for use in MDT images or any type of mass deployment without user interaction.

Note that a switch-less lite installer for the latest nvidia drivers for win 10 x64 is available here (v451.67)
Only graphics driver and Physx system are installed. Geforce experience is not installed.
It is possible to run this during the installation ($oem$ folder).
Link: Nvidia driver




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.

Today, windows 7 x64 Professional SP1 Tunisia edition with every update till June 2020 is available. It's a full version (nothing was removed besides the useless recovery file winre.wim).

BypassESU v5 by abodi1406 was installed. It might still work for future updates.

As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5 and netfx 4.8, ie11, dx9 (and 11) and many programs.
Note: in this edition you'll find many more programs like the latest releases of vlc, firefox, handbrake, cdisplay, Sumatra, Flashplayer, 7zip 19.00, winrar 5.90 full, Visual C++ Redist......

no drivers were integrated.

Windows defender and UAC are disabled by default.
Fx sound enhancer 13.028 was added (full version).

New: Many new programs were installed. (see windows 10).
Subtitles Edit was updated to v3.5.15. abbodi1406's Visual C++ Redist was updated to v0.31.

Rebase 1.3 for windows 7x64 with its tutorial by harkaz.
An essential program to slim down Windows 7.
Link: https://mega.nz/#!EUEQFQja!Zc1idDsCZXVzHuYHGpthefz_o82bMOgn7OdisvNsK_A


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




Here is office 2007 with all the 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.

Thanks for this new update. I've been using the Maher Win 7 Ultimate June 2014 release, never could get the Roll-up to work. Need to do a new clean install,  looks like this should work for me.

Are there any pointers here to getting a USB boot install for this ISO on an ASUS board? I have a Z270 based board, and tried using Rufus with the recommended settings but can't get a stick to boot.

Also, how can I get a donation to you for your work on this ISO?

Thanks !

Well, sometimes it is not easy to install new updates on windows 7 indeed. You must be talking about the convenient update. To install every update, I used to start from scratch too.

As for a windows 7 usb bootable key, I'm sure you can do it with the windows 7 usb dvd download tool. It works for windows 10 too, available here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=56485
Of course, you have to go to the Bios so that you can boot from USB. Usually you have a boot menu which looks like this: https://i.ibb.co/kX1z62p/boot.jpg

As for a donation, I don't need anything. Instead, I advise you to contact humbert, (you can send him some banknotes if you have his address) or try to contact Maher directly...
However, I don't have your avatar yet, and it seems we have a vacancy. You can send me a link if you have a picture to put among them: https://i.ibb.co/4RKKVFb/avatars.jpg

Note that I'm going to release an updated version of windows 10 x64 tonight, with updated programs (handbrake, vlc...). Those programs will be available in the next version of windows 7 too.





Note that I earnt money on the stock market this morning (I sold some s&p 500 shorts). Overall, I'm staying bearish for the American markets. Note that I reinforced my position on Societe Generale one hour ago, I bought some shares at 14.4€. I think there is upside potential for Societe Generale indeed, even if the correction of the cac 40 may not be over...

As for the collapse of Wirecard (-80%) due to the financial scandal, I advise you against buying wirecard shares. Wirecard's confirmation that $2.1bn it had booked in its accounts likely never existed raises questions over whether the company is able to survive as a going concern or can be broken up and sold.

Well, when the cac40 was dropping 2%, at mid-day, I advised you against buying Wirecard. The shares was declining by 15%. At the closing of the market, the share of Wirecard was losing 30%. And there might be no relief in sight: https://i.ibb.co/WgL8yks/wirecard.jpg
As for the rest of the market, the cac finally closed down 3%. On the short term, I think that the s&p 500 and the European market, after their quick recovery, could fall a further 5% in my opinion. I was certainly wrong to sell my short position this morning, even if I made a small gain.


Note that a new version of windows 10 and new Nvidia drivers will be available tonight.

Note that new Switchless Nvidia drivers are available here: https://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=3350.msg35536#msg35536

The next version of windows 10 is delayed for the moment. Maybe there will be something by the end of the week.
