Re: Windows7 and performing a clean install

Brian Smart created a Windows pre-installation environment for 7 a few years ago. I personally have used it several times successfully.
The address escapes my memory off hand and it is an over 4 GB download as many of these kinds of things are but it is something that has been in my tool box so to speak for quite some time. I have even used image for windows while being in there. The advantage in this instance would be that Brian's’ environment contains everything you need to install windows 7 without sited help.
My guess that creating such an animal for windows 10 would end up being so big that it would not fit on a standard DVD, possibly a blue ray although this is a little out of my area.

The unattended script is added to the root of the installation DVD or flash drive, then when you boot with it Windows will be automatically installed assuming everything is done correctly and is working as expected. With WinPE, you have to use it to boot and then manually run the Windows installation from your DVD or flash drive. You do have to use Rufus to write WinPE to a flash drive, but the images are self-extracting and it is already included.
Life is what happens after you have already made other plans.
