@Georg, i DO have 64 bit, do you?
and that screenshot dosen't mean anything, you have to match the build number with the build number MS releases later today, until then, the LEAKED copy, IS NOT confirmed



@XXRAZOR

I didn't realize that the .net framework 4 did not come with the Visual Studio 2010 redistribtable (3.5 came with the 2008 redistributable, why wouldn't they give you the 2010 redistributable?). I will add the info to my site.

@marcusj
I have been testing with the leaked copies, and they should be quite close since those were the copies released to major manufactures. Thanks for pointing out the VS 2010 thing. I actually did all my testing with the special .net 2.0 version which only requires VS 2008 stuff and can be run on a clean Windows 7 install.

@marcusj
Your welcome! I was waiting for someone to make this program and got fed up. I am glad I met joakim and worked on this because it still wouldnt exist otherwise.

@marcusj
I haven't worked with Dell, but I am working with much smaller companies. What commercial are you talking about?

i don't know the "name" of the commercial, but i seen a dell commmercial and at the end, they show the windows boot flag but it's going like twice as fast as the normal boot flag, and it's surrounded by banner ad's on the tv, so somthing special is going on there, it might be a recording and sped up, idk but it's not the normal win7 boot.



and, to be honest, i thought someone else would make this app too, pretty awesome that i'm in the middle of it though!

@marcusj0015
Thanks mate, that got it going

@thaimin
Mate the app works fine, no problem at all getting the boot to work when changing within the OS

But you did ask about batching files into a new OS, well i did get a error


Now i only copied the files within the option tab, maybe i have missed something?

Your thoughts?

Thanks again

Cheers

I have also found this excellent (if not the best) book to be of good help:
Code:
Windows® Internals: Including Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista, Fifth Edition
But it is a very techinal and detailed book though, which may work as a great substitute for sleeping pills for most people.

No, I can assure you I haven't read the whole book. But chapter 13 Startup and Shutdown has definetely been read.
