comment Install Windows 8 without a Product Key
There was just an issue when mixing x86 and amd64 images in one wim (works fine with Win7, but Win8 Setup explains this image would not be compatible with your hardware). Didn't try latest Win8.x Setups, but probably you have to add first the amd64 images and then the x86 to the wim file.

comment How to download large files on problematic wifi connections?
sound more like a driver problem. had also sometimes corrupted downloads and interrupting wifi connections using old drivers from atheros and broadcom. try a driver update.

comment Windows bug? Freeze while copying files. Parallel another copy may unfreeze
when a system freezes by accessing the harddisk you may have corrupt sectors. run chkdsk c: /f /r. in your system eventlog you may also see Disk controller warnings, that are in fact most probably sector problems.

comment Windows XP - how to move Desktop and Favorites locations?
that's the only really easiest way to do it - from XP until 8, officially supported onboard, without extra tools, for all UserProfile folders.

comment System Reserved Partition has Drive Letter After Applying a WIM Image with ImageX
thanks for posting the en-us version of this error message. now i found a kb article, admitting the paths are hard-coded. basically they say: use setup to install vista. i'm currently building an usb stick for installing WinXP, V, 7 and 8. on success i'll post my experiences in an answer to you; also hiding the sys part like the official setup knows to do... it is nowhere correctly documented, not even on technet (there it is wrong documented)...

comment System Reserved Partition has Drive Letter After Applying a WIM Image with ImageX
so no, winvista already had sys-reserved partition. i believe it expects this partition and is hardcoded to be installed to the second partition of the harddrive. I'll check tomorrow or next week, because i have to move my current second partition.

comment System Reserved Partition has Drive Letter After Applying a WIM Image with ImageX
I'm currently also banging my head against the wall of winvista... Currently it looks like we need a sys-reserved partition, because applying the image to c: as first partition, first startup to setup fails in that 'the drive letter assignments are wrong'.
