      If you want to integrate drivers (and Patches, too) into editions different from "Pro" you will have to select "Home" or "Ultimate". All these editions are bundled in Install.WIM.
      Advice from Bezelbube@windows-Unattended.de: Drivers of devices niot supported by Win7 have to be integrated into both editions of Boot.wim.

      Q: Can I do it using Dism only (don't want to use nLite) cause I prefer to do it manually?
      A: Since I have never tried that, I don't know the answer.
      While calling DISM.exe from within ADK (...\Deployment Tools\DandISetEnv.bat") you will have to mount Boot.wim

      :: Replace percentage names with your names and paths
      "%ADKVZ%\dism.exe" /mount-wim /wimfile:%Quelle% /index:%QIndex% /mountdir:%MOUNT%

      If I rember it well you will have to integrate your drivers into both of the indexes of Boot.wim.
      Don't forget to heed Fernando's advice for preparing Install.wim, too.

      There maybe in internal limit for the length of fully qualified directory name for files used with NTLite!
      That could be the explanation why "...\Card Reader\xyz.inf" worked and "...\SATA Floppy Image\blablabla.inf" exceeds this limit.

      If you ever work with Abbodi's esd-decrypter-wimlib for decrypting MS' ESD file to ISOs you have to follow
      "- Extract this package contents to a folder with simple path (example: C:\ESD)." (Quote from ReadMe.txt)

      Regards, Nemo

    • @Fernando:
      You're welcome.

      That's why I wanted you

      • to generate a GenuineTicket.xml by GatherOSState.exe to be copied after installation to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\ClipSVC\GenuineTicket\*.xml
      • to create a backup of your Win10 license with Advanced Tokens Manager (ATM)

      Which install files do you find on your different ISOs: .\sources\install.ESD or .\sources\install.WIM?
      ESDs are much smaller as they are compressed with a higher rate than WIMs, but they have to be converted to WIMs before you can manipulate them with DISM.exe in order to integrate patches, drivers, tweaks.

    • All partitioning and formating shound be made during the installation of Win10. No need to do it under Vista.

      I think it's better to separate Win&applications and data on two partitions.
      After choice of language and keyboard layout (which one?)
      - Ignore input of key
      - Delete all partitions on SSD
      - Tell Win to create a partition of 131,572 MiB *); a primary system partition of 500 MiB and a start partition of 128 GiB *) will be created
      - Create a partition on the rest of the space
      - format every partition
      - choose 128 *) GiB partition for inst of W10
      - proceed with installation; but take care which personal data you want to be sent to MS: "Proceed" on every dialog is not a good choice I think; choose the other ones which hardly can be recognized with light blue on dark blue background.

      *) I don't know the size of your SSD or your needs. Other suitable sizes are 66,036 or 98,804 MiB

      Downloading and running ATM doesn't take much of your time. Do it!

      Regards, Nemo

      In the meantime Fernando published his advice for installation of Win10. There are only slight differences to my proposal.

      PS2: @Fernando: "Clean Installation of Win10 instead of upgrading from Win7/8.x" or "Change of HDD to SSD under Win10 without loss of activation"?! I'm sure Nepaluz will tell us if it works as proposed.

    • It's no use any longer (with Win10) to generate a GenuineTicket.xml!
      May be it may work or not. I didn't test it.

      After a test in Virtual Machine: It can't affect your current Win10 on HDD if you run GatherOSState.exe.
      Copy <DVD>\sources\gatherosstate.exe to your desktop, let it generate GenuineTicket.xml and copy/save the *.xml to an external drive. If needed later for activation on SSD drop me a line. It may enhance my experience in those cases. I'll tell you how to proceed.

      Try to get Adavanced Tokens Manager (ATM) NOW, run it on your HHD and save the generated files externally in order to have the license information and tokens as an assurance if activation wll fail on SSD.

      If you're familiar with NTLite - I still work with Win Toolkit - try to integrate the two patches named on Win-Lite (Download with IE!) They lift the Build# from 10586.0 to 10586.36 and may decrease the time for installation if your bandwith to internet is poor.

      ...No, I didn't yet test it, but on >this< page the developer says "Yes".
      Note: This tool will not be able to recover the Win8.1 source key from within a running Win10. It may just present the generic universal Win10 key (Home key starting with TX9XD, PRO starting with VK7JG).
      That's why I recommended ATM.
      If @Nepaluz had asked earlier my advice would have been
      - generating a GenunineTicket.xml on Win8.1 with <W10-DVD>\sources\GatherOSState.exe
      - and after a cleanly installed Win10 injecting *.xml. I think you know my article on Win-Lite.de?!

      Regards, Nemo

    • Zitat von Fernando im Beitrag #32
      ... The free version of the Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is able to recover the key for Windows 7, 8 and Office 2010.

      Did you test it? On the referrenced site it reads as "Recover product key for Windows 7, 8, 8.1 from BIOS No Yes"

      But let's wait what @Nepaluz will tell us.

      Regards, Nemo

    • ... or save $30 and try another tool: Advanced Tokens Manager (ATM) on your present Win10 on HDD.
      Make a restore if activation won't be successful after a clean install (without entering keys) on your SSD. It may be necessary to boot once or twice before activation will be shown.

      Regards, Nemo

    • @Nepaluz:
      Try MS' Media Creation Tool for Win10 (change the link to your favourite language!) to get an official ISO or the opportunity to create a DVD or a bootable flash drive (~8 GB).
      If you want to integrate patches or drivers the included .\sources\Install.esd must be converted to *.WIM. But that's the only disadvantage; you can even choose to get an AiO with x64 and x86.
      And then make a test with your SSD as proposed above. Remove the existing HDD.

      Regards , Nemo

    • @Nepaluz:

      What happens if you remove the HDD from your Lenovo and make a clean install Win10.10586.0 (TH2) on the SSD without entering a license key?
      Maybe your windows will be activated at once, as you already made an upgrade from Win8.1

      Not necessary for a test but if you want to integrate actual patches look HERE for the latest information. This will lift your win10 to build 10586.36 at once.
      Although in German I hope you'll be able to understand the information published there. Otherwise don't hesitate to ask.

      I think Fernando (<--- "Prosit Neujahr!") will help you to find the right drivers.

      ... If I were you, I would integrate the Intel RST driver v11.2.0.1006 WHQL. ...

      Hello Fernando,
      Thanks for your advice.
      Before my X220 arrived yesterday, WinToolkit helped me to prepare an USB stick with all Updates for Windows 8.12 ProWMC according to my thread on Win-Lite.de and all actual updates and the mentioned Intel driver.
      The installation was successful.

      Kind regards

      Hi Fernando,

      My brother has got a Lenovo X220 Laptop with win7-x64 Pro on it.
      (ICH9-M; Controller Intel(R) Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller (iaStor.sys/v11.2.0.1006, iaStorV.sys/v8.6.2.1014)).

      I hope to get my X220 in a few days and want to install Win8.12-x64 ProWMC.

      Do you recommend the procedure described above for my X220?
      Recommended Intel driver?

      Regards, Nemo

      PS: Thanks for the hint on win-lite.de!
