I know that Vasudev is regularly downloading the new versions of Windows 7 in this topic.
Unfortunately, even if I made a new windows 7, I will not upload it this month since I have a data cap (unless the hotspot is working again, which is not the case currently).
I keep it for later.



Note that the next frictional games titled Amnesia Rebirth will be part of a new repack that will probably be released at the end of October.

Note I made a version of windows 10 20H2.
abbodi's vc redist was updated to v0.37, and new intel drivers were integrated.
What's more, windows update was configured so that there is a notification instead of automatic updates.
I will try to upload it on the forum next week. I know that humbert will potentially test it since he uses windows 10.

Tonight, windows 10 x64 pro v20H2, v19042.541 with every update till September 2020 is available on  forum.

Changelog:
Abbodi1406’s vcredist was updated to 0.37.
New wallpapers are available.
Some Intel drivers were updated.


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 5.91, 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).
New programs installed silently: mediacoder 0.8.61 (modified edition), Psychopinball (by Fuj), Smartcopy, Grand dictionnaire Hachette Oxford, Remove empty directories, WiseDuplicatefinder, Ant renamer, Pinball, LameXP, Belatout, Easeus Partition Master 13.8.
HDD programs: HDD low level format, HD tune pro.

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

New drivers: the list of drivers will be available soon.

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 (v456.71)
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.

Yeah was waiting for W7 ISOs. I'm still using 1809 and 1909 as preferred W10 versions for more stability and somewhat less bugs. Even I have a data cap since I use hotspot through cellular.

As for me, I'm still using v1909. But as soon as v2009 is officially released, I will install it. It could be available by the end of the month (I think I uploaded a beta version since there is no official news about it).
Note that this month could be exceptional in terms of new releases since Amnesia Rebirth will be released on 20 October. A new frictional games AIO repack will be made as soon as I get it.
Note that I uploaded Resident Evil 2 months ago and I finally tested it: it's pretty good. There will be no repack for RE3 since it garnered mixed reception from players.
Like Vasudev, I'm still using my samsung s6 as modem, and I have almost reached my data cap. It will be reseted on Sunday. In the meantime, I hope shadow.97, humbert, Vasudev and maybe some users will liven up the forum.

I found an article stating that windows 10 20h2 is officially available: https://itigic.com/windows-10-20h2-the-october-2020-update-is-now-official/
So the version on the forum is not a beta version, but the RTM (with an update). I don't know if another version will be released this month then.

The problem with these Windows releases is that they refuse to install. This happens even on Windows Update. The other day it prompted me to upgrade. I did that. Unfortunately, at the end I saw the all too familiar "we were unable to install the upgrade, restoring previous version." (or whatever). This sort of thing is the norm, not the exception. Clearly these upgrades are very badly written and not properly tested.

I had the same message. Note that I disabled automatic updates in the new version of windows 10, available in the previous message. You'll have a notification instead to update manually. If you don't download these updates, you won't get this message. It might be a relief for humbert.
I did this because I have a data cap and windows update is downloading tons of data, sometimes to no avail. I heard Vasudev had connection problems too, it might be interesting for him too.
With the new configuration, you can skip the updates:



Note that a repack for the latest nvidia drivers is available too in the previous message.

I also have automatic updates turned off. Normally I use WAU manager every few days. Windows updates are so horribly written that out of may 10 updates, 1 or 2 won't install. And of course let's not even mention updating Windows to a higher version. The failure rate is easily over 90%. I don't know how Micro$haft gets away with this.

You have a data cap?? Are there no other ISP's where you live? With so many people streaming HD and especially 4K, data caps are ludicrous. This not to even mention downloading other stuff.
