    Thank you for your work!

  2. SteveSi says:

    Hi, which apps require write access to the application folder? I want to check if they work when booting from Easy2Boot as an ISO from a USB drive…

    • gandalf50 says:

      off the top of my head, I’m pretty sure all the browsers do, but there are many others that will fail if they cant write to the Y: drive

  3. Allan Freitas says:

    Are you planning to do x64 version?
    Or plans for upgraded version of Windows 7 x32 and x64?

    • gandalf50 says:

      no plans on updates for windows 7

      • Gene says:

        The W7 x64 (for those of us who much prefer W7) is one that I and others have requested before. But I can appreciate that time and resources for such a thing may be limited. It would be great to see a **fully updated** W7 x64 edition release come out before MS retires W7 in 2020. A summary W7 PE, “for the record”, so to speak. Is there anything (practical) that we could do to encourage this ?

  13. Amit says:

    In application added you mentioned partition wizard as alternate browser instead of partition tool.

    I’m also an IT Professional and having this available in W7 x64 is very handy, and sometimes prefered method, depending on the task at hand. Thanks a lot for your hard work and efforts, with or without the W7 x64 Update!

    Uma verdadeira obra de arte! Parabéns pelo trabalho…
    Está tudo perfeito a meu ver, ferramenta extremamente poderosa.

    Mas eu tive um pequeno probleminha na utilização, tentei colocar em multiboot em um pendrive com outras ferramentas que utilizo. Mas ao fazer isso os aplicativos em Gandalf’s Windows 10PE não funcionam (creio que esteja acontecendo o mesmo de quando a iso é queimada num DVD), a unidade “Y” não é montada e por isso não encontra os aplicativos.

    Seria possível você me ajudar a solucionar? Até mesmo me falando como montar manualmente a unicade “Y” já ajudaria.

    Mais uma vez, parabéns pelo excelente trabalho! Como disse antes, tudo perfeito, ferramenta show. Mas me ajudaria mais ainda se eu pudesse colocar ela em multiboot.

  24. Steve says:

    Thanks very much for creating & maintaining this. I’ve been using Redstone 2 for quite a while & appreciate the value of this tool. I’ve run into a couple snapgs with this latest release, though.

    First, I have not been able to create a bootable USB using Rufus. I’ve tried the advice given elsewhere (i.e., to leave the values at their default) and I’ve also tried changing them to what seemed “logical”. The end result is the same: when I boot my Dell Precision computer and press F12 to be the boot options, with the old Redstone2 that I created a year or so ago, I get an option for UEFI: Sandisk Cruzer…, while with the new ones I’ve created using the new Redstone3, I do not see that option and cannot boot from it.

    I’ve tried Rufus 2.11 and 2.18. I’ve tried starting by specifying the ISO file & letting Rufus choose the values and I’ve tried setting them to other values that seemed more promising – but still didn’t work.

    I’ve also tried searching on this site and google-at-large to see if someone how documented the right values – to no avail.

    I’m sure it is some obvious setting I’m getting wrong – I’ll appreciate any quick guidance just listing the right values for each field:
    – Partition Scheme
    – File system
    – Cluster size
    – Format Options

    If it is already documented somewhere I apologize for my ineptness in not finding it – please just point me to the right place.

    Thanks in advance,

    Gandalf your x86 Redstone 3 build is a great alternative for PC users looking to change up their operating system a bit with some features. You can get the x86 Redstone 3 build from Google Drive, a great cloud sharing platform. Cloud security is key in ensuring that information and data shared on cloud platforms such as Google Drive are kept safe for people to use. I really like the design of the Redstone 3 and the backup disc and image storing.

  28. Macrium User says:

    Reflect won’t mount images in your newest version. Worked ok in previous version.

  29. gdc88 says:

    Thank you!

    HDclone asks for activation – pressing single activation works only 3 usage times.

    is there any solution?

    thank you!
