With a piece of software called Winstaller from Levtec, one no longer needs to use an answer file for unattended deployment of Windows operating system. This opens up huge opportunities for those of us who cannot see and wish to work in a professional IT setting, or just for fixing our home computers.
While Winstaller has existed for some time, there have been a number of advancements in the software. One of the biggest of these is that Winstaller is able to deploy the latest version of Windows 10 Technical Preview which at the time of this demonstration is build 9926.
In this podcast I will show you how this can be done and I will provide all the links to the tools you will need to install your own copy of the latest technical preview from Microsoft.
Firstly, you will want to visit this page to download the technical preview. You may also visit your favorite search engine such as Google, Bing or Yahoo to search for “Download Windows 10 technical preview”.
You can obtain Winstaller from Clicking here to visit the Levtec Winstaller page.
Next, you will need a method of mounting .ISO files, which are images of CD or DVD disks. Once you have obtained the .ISO for the technical preview, you may mount it with a free utility called Slysoft Virtual Clone Drive. This software will emulate a virtual DVD drive on your system and can load various image types, one of which happens to be .iso files.
If you wish to install in a Virtual Machine or VM, I highly recommend using VMWare Player at this link.
Give the podcast a listen to hear me create the image, deploy it to .ISO for use or to a USB drive and to install it in a virtual machine.
