    Very nice. Thank you for sharing. Hope you do well with promoting it.
    This is a really good idea. MDL is a great resource. Without some of the resources available there, things would be a whole lot worse than they are in the technology realm.

    I agree Mr.Fox, without MDL I would be on Linux by now :)

    I'm already on Linux. Hahaa.
    I'm using Couple of Dark side Win 10 from MDL forums, which are now on Light side thanks to MSFT.
    These days Linux is comparable to Windows 10 and I dare say its faster than FCU. Only issue is some very good apps like HWINFO,TS, banking apps, money mgmt apps etc aren't available or better than Windows counterparts.
    On Older laptops with HDD, I use Linux 80% of the time and Windows 10 20% to fix NTFS/FAT32 disk errors, Word,excel and powerpoint.
    With Wine 2.x, windows binaries are loaded faster than 1.6.x versions and I feel Wine can replace Windows 10.

    I think there is a Linux version of AIDA64, but otherwise all of my overclocking tools, 3DMark, 3DMark 11, 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark 06, 3DMark 05, Cinebench, wPrime, most of the other benchmarks and the vast majority of the 250+ games in my Steam, Origin, Uplay and Origin libraries do no function at all, or function poorly, under Linux. The support for Linux benchmarks on HWBOT.org is dismal. Heck, even NVIDIA Control Panel has limited functionality in Linux. SLI support is marginal. Hardware configuration and monitoring options are limited and/or cumbersome, and what few there are have been mostly antiquated and unaesthetic, like something I might have used back in the days of Windows 95 or DOS. I think the underlying problem is the majority of the key players involved with Linux development have little or nothing in common with guys like me.

    The way my wife and our parents use a computer (web browsing and email 99.9% of the time) is the perfect scenario for replacing Windows with Linux. I do not believe it will ever be capable of replacing Windows for me unless I reduce my use of a computer to the same point. As things continue to get dumbed down on the hardware side of computing, reducing my use of a computer to match their limitations is certainly within the realm of possibility. Linux runs really great on anemic, inexpensive hardware and the OS UI looks very nice as well.

    Perfectly agree with you. I really need MSO, VS, gaming etc.. on Windows which Linux doesn't even have an alternative. So, I use both of them.

    1) make sure that you have enough free space on system partition for temp files
    2) update you host OS first . Outdated DISM may fail with some newer drivers!

    I have 400gb of free space on my system partition, and Windows is updated to January of 2018 via Simplix pack. I will try again, and show you what happens. Its the first phase of installing drivers on the Install.wim. On this ISO en_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_677332.iso


    Here is where it starts to error out. I love this tool you made, but I dont know what is going on here.
