HELP please? 3rd party software and other.

on Tue 6 Sep 2016 - 14:28
Hey guys,,,,,,,i am a newbie  in regards to this software and need some help please?

Ok so I bought / donated to use this program to make my installs go easier, and faster.  Because as we all know, the only real solution to fix any and most windows problems you get, is to reinstall your OS.  If you don't believe me, call MS and any one of there techs , regardless of the problem, does not know how to solve your issue, by fixing it......they all just know one thing......" humm sir, you just need to reinstall windows"  So pathetic.... Ok sorry.......let me keep focused here.....lol

Anyways, I downloaded the software and read as much as i could on installation.... I did a little tweaking in each area...but the one thing i wanted and by reading it seems that its possible? is to have  all my 3rd party drivers and software installed auto during or after the windows install..........I used the OEM folder , put all the .exe files in that OEM folder and winreducer did install it in the ISO, but it did nothing when I installed the ISO...so when it was all done.......none of my  3rd party drivers or software were installed.  THAT again, is the main reason  I invested my money and time into this program.....PLEASE tell me I did something wrong and that it is possible to do what i want?

Also......I have a new Asus Deluxe X99 3.1 MOB,,,,,with a Samsung 950Pro nvme M2 card, does anyone know the actual steps on how to  load windows on it correctly?  I mean.....I went into bios and turned off CSM , Secure boot off and set to " other os" , had ACHI on...and then booted to the USB , then when it was done installing and asked me to reboot for the first time.....i turned back on CSM  and set to UEFI , loaded the secure boot keys..and put secure boot to UEFI and rebooted..........everything seemed to go well and it did install as i tweaked it...BUT again...none of my 3rd party stuff loaded........ALSO  as soon as i loaded up windows.....i did a sfc /scannow and guess what?  I have errors that sfc could not fix........so i guess i am about to do a restore health .....we will see if that fixes it. But why am i getting a sfc error on a clean install?

Ok sorry for long post but if anyone can give me step by step instructions on how to integrate the 3rd party stuff into windows iISO. sp i dont have to spend hours doing it each time i install windows......I would be very grateful.......oh and if anyone could verify the install technique with CSM and secure boot......that would be great.! 

AND i wish someone could explain to me WHY WHY WHY windows has so many dam issues......I have a macbookpro that i have had for 5-6 years and maybe....just maybe I have had to reinstall the OS ONCE?  what the heck is that all about?  WHY cant windows be more hardened and  why does it continuously have so many dam errors......why do i found myself spending countless hours reinstalling windows every freken 60 days?

Thanks,

Scott

Hi,

yeah they probably got that sentence printed out and glued to their monitor so they dont forget to say it Razz

Anyways, I downloaded the software and read as much as i could on installation.... I did a little tweaking in each area...but the one thing i wanted and by reading it seems that its possible? is to have  all my 3rd party drivers and software installed auto during or after the windows install..........I used the OEM folder , put all the .exe files in that OEM folder and winreducer did install it in the ISO, but it did nothing when I installed the ISO...so when it was all done.......none of my  3rd party drivers or software were installed.  THAT again, is the main reason  I invested my money and time into this program.....PLEASE tell me I did something wrong and that it is possible to do what i want?

about your drivers, you need to extract your drivers before integrating them. so if you got an exe file (like for nvidia) you can extract it with 7zip like an zip file. you need to extract all your different drivers so you get *.ini, *.inf and *.sys files, this files are integrated into your iso with winreducer. select the folder which contains all your drivers in winreducer -> system tab -> integration -> Drivers (install.wim). you can hover with your mouse above the name and you will get some more information.

EDIT: for the option Drivers (boot.wim) you can select your ACHI, USB3 drivers so they will get integrated into the boot image (if you use an usb3 stick for installation)

for your software: goto winreducer -> system -> winreducer post install -> OOBE. activate it and select a software like 7zip. you will see it now at the bottom:


Code:
"%CDROM%\WinReducerEX100PI\7z1514-x64.exe"

that way 7zip will be started after installation (but not installed automatically). if you want to install it automatically you need a silent switch. you can finde different switches here:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

so for the exe file of 7zip the silent switch/parameter is: /S

so your line should look like this:

Code:
"%CDROM%\WinReducerEX100PI\7z1514-x64.exe" /S

so if you now let winreducer do its job and you install windows, 7zip will be automatically installled during instalation (or the first logon) im not really sure when its done, because the last time i used this feature is soooo long ago xD

so do exactly that proceure for all other software, if you cant find the correct switch for you software you can also ask for it at the silent switch subforum, or google it like:

YOUR_SOFTWARE silent install
or
YOUR_SOFTWARE silent parameter


Also......I have a new Asus Deluxe X99 3.1 MOB,,,,,with a Samsung 950Pro nvme M2 card, does anyone know the actual steps on how to  load windows on it correctly?  I mean.....I went into bios and turned off CSM , Secure boot off and set to " other os" , had ACHI on...and then booted to the USB , then when it was done installing and asked me to reboot for the first time.....i turned back on CSM  and set to UEFI , loaded the secure boot keys..and put secure boot to UEFI and rebooted..........everything seemed to go well and it did install as i tweaked it...BUT again...none of my 3rd party stuff loaded........ALSO  as soon as i loaded up windows.....i did a sfc /scannow and guess what?  I have errors that sfc could not fix........so i guess i am about to do a restore health .....we will see if that fixes it. But why am i getting a sfc error on a clean install?
i dont know why the settings are going back.maybe there are more options at your bios where it use your changed settings only for the next start and not permanently

about the sfx error, maybe that happens because you removed some stuff with winreducer. idk because i never used sfc.

Ok sorry for long post but if anyone can give me step by step instructions on how to integrate the 3rd party stuff into windows iISO. sp i dont have to spend hours doing it each time i install windows......I would be very grateful.......oh and if anyone could verify the install technique with CSM and secure boot......that would be great.!

windows and mac are two different things, i never used mac so i cant say what or if it is in some ways better, probably i would remove stuff too Razz

reinstalling windows each 60 days? i do it like each 3 weeks on 4 different PCs. i use on each an SSD, USB3 Port and USB3 stick. my windows installation takes like 5 minutes till i can use it again (win7, for win10 it takes like 9 minutes) (without installing software) Wink it takes me longer to backup my data on D Drive before installation

i can help you via teamviewer but since i dont got in microphone i cant speak to you...

payment? i take 1.000.000€ per hour xD thanks for your offer but im helping here out for free so if you want you can just donate a bit for the winreducer project.

not really, i just reinstall them because they get a bit messy, because i do a lot of different things and i also do a lot of test on them so sometimes they are so messed up that it would take hours to fix them (instead installing Windows in 5 minutes :p )

"bad sites" ? i heard of them, thats where all those cute cat Videos are from right xD ?
i get all Software i need for free from my University or my workplaces. sometimes i get free licenses when i do translations or as a free giveaway when helping out.
