Gandalf’s Windows 10PE x64 Redstone 2 build 15063 version 10-04-2017

Update 10-10-2017

I have created a x86 version of the Redstone 2 PE and need a few testers to verify if it boots up for them OK.  Send an email if you’re interested in testing it. gandalf50@outlook.com

Update 10-04-2017

I made some small fixes to the build. New build is Gandalf’s Windows 10PE x64 Redstone 2 build 15063 version 10-04-2017. I will leave the old iso in the share (for those who are in the process of downloading it) for the rest of the day then remove it. Hopefully the torrent is also working.

This is a new release of my PE.  This is Gandalf’s Win10PE x64 Redstone 2 build 15063 version 10-04-2017  The apps listed below are included in this build. Programs in Blue are new and programs in Green have been updated in this release.

A BIG THANKS to ChrisR and everyone over at theOven.org without whom this build would not be possible. If you’re interested in making your own build be sure to check them out.

Gandalf’s Windows 10 PEx64 Redstone 2 Creators Update Coming Soon

The new build is completed but before I release it I would like a few people to test it and give me their feedback on any issues.  Those who have had wifi or lan driver issues in the past especially.  Send me your email to gandalf50@outlook.com and I will add you to the onedrive share this evening when the build is uploaded to onedrive.

Here’s a screenshot of the desktop.  I have to test all the apps and shortcuts still and then write up the post . I hopefully will have it completed by the end of the weekend. ☺
