    Macrium Reflect Installation/Usage Guide [Recommended to use after installing your OS for your OS Imaging Backups]

    So I used the MSMG Toolkit thanks to @Mr. Fox for guiding me on how to do this and I removed the following from the ISO:

    ISO Built using the MSMG Toolkit v7.9 and latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update RTM Build 16299.15 updated to build 16299.19 with the latest Cumulative Update

    Integrated:
    - DirectX 9
    - Windows 7 Calculator
    - .NET Framework 3.5
    - Windows Updates: KB4043961 & KB4051613
    -
    - Applied Metro Skin to Windows Photo Viewer
    - Applied Metro Skin to Windows 7 Calculator


    Removed:
    - All Metro Apps except Store
    - 3rd Party App Links
    - Connect App
    - Maps
    - Telemetry
    - Skype Video App
    - Contact Support
    - Cortana
    - Windows Embedded Features (removes packages related to Custom Shell, Device Lockdown, Keyboard/Registry Filter)
    - Geo Location
    - Home Group [Never works and is a headache to share files, just use the regular Windows Sharing with Accounts Permission for each folder]
    - Mixed Reality
    - Windows People Experience Host
    - Quick Assist App
    - Take a Test
    - Windows Defender [Heaviest Antivirus in the world, see:
    AV-Comparatives: Performance Test - October 2017 ]
    - Smart Screen

    Tweaks:
    - Disabled downloading and installing 3rd party apps
    - Enabled Fraunhofer MP3 Professional Codec

    This image contains all Editions of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (Redstone 3) and activated just fine provided you enter your Windows product key in PC Settings > Updates & Security > Activation > Change Product Key

    The ISO also includes the stable RAID Driver v15.2.0.1020 so it will be there on your USB Flash disk once you burn the ISO to the flash disk for easy access for those who want to install Windows 10 on a RAID setup so you can simply point to the USB Flash disk / RAID folder to load the IRST driver so you can be able to see your RAID Array


    MAKE SURE YOU RIGHT CLICK ON THE ISO FILE YOU DOWNLOADED, GO TO PROPERTIES, THEN CLICK ON "UNBLOCK" IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT THEN APPLY OTHERWISE THE ISO AND ALL FILES WITHIN HAVE A BLOCKED STATUS. THIS HAPPENS TO ALL FILES YOU DOWNLOAD FROM THE INTERNET!

    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Bloatware Free Edition v1.2

    Windows 10 Creators Update Bloatware Free Edition v5.9




    Language Pack CAB Files for Windows 10 Download Links

    NOTE: After installing Windows, launch REGEDIT and search for SecHealth then delete all the registry entries to prevent recurring even log view errors pertaining to the removed Windows Defender

    How to burn it to your USB Flash Disk? simply download Rufus, then run it as admin, then follow the below settings:

    If you don't like what I've removed from this ISO, then feel free to create your own:

    Windows and Office ISO Download Tool
    MSMG ToolKit


    Instructions on the correct order on how to do this:

    1) Load the source then enter * instead of typing 1 or 2 to select Home or Pro. By entering *, this will load both editions so you can do the removal/integration on both editions at the same time. Then answer YES twice for the questions asked.
    2) Integrate the Language pack you want if required [Optional]
    3) Integrate all the features you want to add except for DirectX 9.0c and .NET Framework 3.5 using the Integrate Feature Menu.
    4) Remove the Windows Apps that you don't want
    5) Remove the Components that you don't want followed by Advanced Components
    6) Integrate Windows Updates
    7) Apply Changes and save to source image, this will perform the Cleanup
    8) Re-Mount the Source
    9) Add the .NET Framework 3.5 using the Integrate Feature Menu.
    10) Integrate Windows Updates
    11) Integrate Windows Custom Feature Packs [Optional]
    12) Apply Changes and save source
    13) Rebuild Source
    14) Create the ISO

    Don't ask me for any support on how to do this further than the instructions I provided as I am by no means an expert in using this tool. For more help, visit the original thread on MDL Forums: MSMG ToolKit

    Note: If you remove the Xbox app, Game Mode won't function properly.

    your Windows will never feel snappier after you try this, it's a whole new experience.

    since we removed all Metro apps, you now have no calculator, so here's the Windows 7 one:

    @hmscott in response to the rep message you sent me, yes, you should install Windows 10 now that we have this clean version.

    don't be scared when you hear Cortana walk you through the initial Windows Welcome screen, that's only her ghost, she's gone, eternally

    But do use O&O ShutUp10 to disable the other crap and Windows Automatic Driver updates

    Thanks man, I will take it as a good indication that Windows 10 management is improving, but it's not ready enough for me quite yet.

    When the Windows 10 updates stop interrupting stability it will be the next sign things are almost ready for consumer use.

    It would be the final sign to see MS abandon privacy invasion, completely revoking any and all data collection, finally removing all of that code from the consumer release.

    That would be the final sign that Windows 10 is ready for adoption.

    MS did say that when development was over, they would remove all of the data collection code, and stop telemetry collection.

    I've assumed this means that since Microsoft hasn't done this yet, Windows 10 is still under development.

    And, Microsoft has been proving Windows 10 is still under development since "Beta" release, creating too many problems for me to want to start messing with it now.

    I'm waiting for Windows 10 development to end, and the final Windows 10 customer release is made, then it's time for me to install it, check it out and recommend others do so as well. :hi:

    well here's what j00 can do my friend.

    1) Install Windows 10 Creamer's Update bloatware free edition
    2) Run O&O Shutup10 and disable Windows Update entirely
    3) Regularly check this thread for updates and their manual MSU downloads to choose what YOU want to install after checking the log files of that update:Windows 10 Hotfix Repository
    (you have to be a member to view any threads on that forum)

    Man, it really does suck that MDL moved to XenForo. This has to be the suckiest forum software available. I don't know why anyone would intentionally do that.

    I used to visit MDL at least 10 times a day. Now I visit it every other day. It sucks now with Xenforo and very difficult to see stuff. VBulletin FTW
