Capture and Apply Windows, System, and Recovery Partitions
Capture a Windows image (.WIM) file and use it to deploy Windows to new devices.

Rather than capturing each partition, you can capture just the Windows partition into an image, and then use the files from that image to set up the rest of the partitions on the drive.

How to Open the Start Menu Folder in Windows 7 or 10
Are you one of those people that obsessively edits your start menu to keep it clean, tidy, and organized? Back in Windows XP, all you had to do was right-click on the start button to get to the folder, but Windows 7 changed it. And then Windows 8 made it really annoying. And then Windows 10 brought it all back to normal… sorta.

Fix for Windows 7 Slow Update issue
There is a workaround, as I discovered. Download two updates before starting the installation process, KB3083710 and KB3012810, and copy them to a USB flash drive. Install Windows 7 with SP1 and leave the network cable disconnected. Install those two updates from the flash drive before connecting to the network and running Windows Update for the first time, and you can cut that horrendous delay down to a matter of a few minutes.
