Useful tool for PC or Mac, just copy one file to EFI system partition and boot
(No installation, No USB, No Boot Manager, Doesn't change the boot sequence).

PERMANENTLY disable updates on Windows 10

From Whirlpool forums...

Once again Micro Sh.t can't help themselves and keep releasing updates
which may eventually make you keep subscribing annually,
plus accessing your data to the cloud.

Crazie: from the post below.

" Someone might have mentioned this before; rumoured that the next major update will port everything in your "My Document" folder up to MS cloud, leaving nothing on your local drive(s).

This is to lay down the foundation of an annual storage fee on top of buying the license to run windows. Pretty much the Adobe Cloud scheme where all users will continue to pay an annual sub. fee....
that's exactly like our mobile market we have got;
the device is only secondary to your monthly/annaul line fees. "

How To Log Into Windows 7 If You Forgot Your Password

WITHOUT CD OR SOFTWARE!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCInsJ6BLjY

Should work for Windows 8 and 10

There are many of these videos around.

Uses notepad in the boot up sequence.

Not for amateurs.

::::;

Notepad allows you to use the file manager by opening a text files

where you can then drop down to

System 32

Find a file called sethc

Rename it to Seth whatever...say seth111

Go up to cmd and rename it to sethc

...... and keep following the video.

Files can be lost, especially encrypted files with some of these hacks.

This well produced video doesn't mention this.

Maybe because another video from someone else on Youtube
was using utilman as the way in.

I am not responsible for any stuffups.

Note: Don't forget to Change back sethc.exe to cmd.exe afterward.


""""""""

Ha! ha! I didn't realise that I already posted a Puppy way for this...

Cheers again, cthisbear, for updating this thread Smile
Like many on this forum I guess I consider when compared against Puppy the M$ OS a comparatively inhibitive and "risky" environment to deal with. However I keep some 2nd-hand machines duel-booted (see what I did there?) so that I can keep tabs on M$'s "catchup" progress for general usability. And for my purposes unfortunately some software in M$ is still a necessary evil. Updating Win7 to Win10 and cloning from HDD to SSD in different "legacy" and UEFI BIOS contexts while preserving Linux partitions has been a chore, to say the least Sad Your thread has been a useful lifeline for such excursions into insanity, thanks.

I have a mate with Windows 10 Lite.

Quite happy with it.
Running well with the MS BS blanked out.
Now nearly 2 months.

Gave me the wrong copy ha! ha! in another language
which you can't change.

I am awaiting for the original he had; to test on an old hard drive.

His usb boot program is WiNToBootic ..Ukrainian I think.

https://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/WinToBootic.shtml

Can't beat Puppy though.

Windows Windows 10 activation
From a Whirlpool post where the handy answer might go into the ether.

Untested by me.

https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/thread/9xkq7583

Original post:

" Hi all, I recently upgraded the hardware on my PC but didn't perform a fresh install of windows.
So far I've experienced no problems apart from the Activate Windows watermark that appears randomly.
I have a legit CD key and I've entered it in several times but says it is not able to activate.
I have 0x803F7001 error when I go to the activation page.
I've tried the Microsoft virtual helper and haven't resolved the problem.
When it says it will connect me with an assistant, I get an error message after a few minutes.
I've been stuck on this for a little while now. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated "

Activate Windows 10 without using any software

If you are using another version of Windows, please navigate to Windows OS category and select a suitable article.

Method 1: Manual activation

Time needed: 1 minute.


Run KMS commands on command prompt.

Open Command Prompt as administrator.
Click on the start button, search for “cmd” then run it with administrator rights.
Install KMS client key
Use the command “slmgr /ipk yourlicensekey” to install a license key (yourlicensekey is the activation key that corresponds to your Windows edition). The following is the list of Windows 10 Volume license keys.

Home: TX9XD-98N7V-6WMQ6-BX7FG-H8Q99
Home N: 3KHY7-WNT83-DGQKR-F7HPR-844BM
Home Single Language: 7HNRX-D7KGG-3K4RQ-4WPJ4-YTDFH
Home Country Specific: PVMJN-6DFY6-9CCP6-7BKTT-D3WVR

Enterprise N: DPH2V-TTNVB-4X9Q3-TJR4H-KHJW4

(Note: You need to hit [Enter] key to execute commands.)


Set KMS machine address
Use the command “slmgr /skms kms8.msguides.com” to connect to my KMS server.

Activate your Windows
The last step is to activate your Windows using the command “slmgr /ato”.

Now check the activation status again.


Windows 10 is activated successfully
Windows 10 is activated successfully
Method 2: Using a batch file
This one is not recommend anymore due to the new update of Microsoft.
