Re: Windows 10 Lite for Rpi3 and Lumia 950XL (WIP!)

I've decided to end this project now due to time constraints and other commitments, but you guys are welcome to continue hacking Windows 10 based around my ARM experiment that used the commercial version of NTLite. Below are the bare minimum components (besides localisation; undocumented) needed for...

Re: Windows 10 Lite for Rpi3 and Lumia 950XL (WIP!)

.NET Framework 3.5 issue is now fixed. Have removed some other components. If you get a messed up system tray just restart Explorer. There's only a handful of components left to document in terms of protection for XXX feature. After that I am going to try to get Windows 10 running at the bare minimu...

No worries; you're welcome. I'll have a look at the .net framework issue next time. Also when I finish the project I will publish the full documentation so others can create their own Windows 10 using ntlite, based on personal preference. However, without knowing off-hand what components are respons...

Re: Windows 10 Lite for Rpi3 and Lumia 950XL (WIP!)

GPU is lacking in some areas due to the current state of the drivers, i.e. the black screen problem in Edge/Chromium as well as H264/H265 playback, otherwise I don't think it's anything to do with woalite.

For version 1.4 you need to change the bottom of script - lumia.bat in order to get Chromium Edge (Chredge) to work - just include these additional services: reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AppXSvc" /v Start /t REG_DWORD /d 4 /f reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\winmgmt...

Re: Windows 10 Lite for Rpi3 and Lumia 950XL (WIP!)

I don't know. I put my 950 into storage. Can you use WOADeployer 2.7 for a standard install.wim and then send me the log file from WOA.Deployer 2.7\Logs?

I have left out the 950 instructions this time; you will need to figure out which driver sub-folders to replace from the new (reorganized) clo...

Re: Windows 10 Lite for Rpi3 and Lumia 950XL (WIP!)

BTW is there be any interest in booting from VHDX stored inside your phone data as opposed to splitting the partitions 8/18 GB between mobile and WOA? I think it can work. It uses the same boot manager and the performance seems unaffected. I'm unsure what the other advantages are though - you could ...

I've had a break over the last week - but not before fixing the new Microsoft Edge sign-in problem - hope to release a new lite version soon. To be honest it's quite close to being fully bare bones anyway minus the components that have been flagged up for protection. So after removing the final few ...

Re: Windows 10 Lite for Rpi3 and Lumia 950XL (WIP!)

It's a problem with Windows 10 using only the small cores and not the big core of the Snapdragon 808 CPU, so nothing to do with the WOA Deployer app.

Maybe try both and compare the difference. Start with the full version using WOA Deployer then try the lite version after? You should really try to pick up a 950 XL if you can from the market place.

Yep! But the 950 has only half the CPU speed due to a problem with the "big" CPU not being utilized for some unknown reason. This problem is with any Windows 10 distro.
