When you run Setup from under an already running 32-bit operating system, it's simple.

Also, the setup of this program can be accessed from the Control Panel by selecting "Menu" Start ". Aero Program Glass configured with a special configurator, available in the" Start "menu with the label" Aero Glass Settings "in the folder" Aero Glass xXX ". the program Windows Desktop Gadgets Revived has exactly the same options that were in Windows 7 to configure the service of gadgets and are available they are the usual place - right-click on an empty screen area and select "Gadgets" item shortcut menu..
Question: is there a the ability to remove apps integrated into the assembly?
Answer: . For the vast majority of programs possible in the installed system go on the road Control Panel-> programs and Features and uninstall annoying applications have standard Windows tools.
Q: you wrote that spyware updates what replaced plugs. it updates How effective this protection?
Answer: at the time of assembly, Windows update finds that an update of the "blacklist" is already available in the system and does not try to impose their installation. I do not accidentally said that this is true only at the time of assembly issue. Some updates change the version with time, some are replaced by others. In this case, the plug is not helping. They need to update. How to do it and what kind of updates are included in the "black list", please visit the official page of the project " caps not recommended for Windows Update ."
Q: Where can I see which updates are included in the assembly?
A: The installed system go on the road Control Panel-> Programs and Components-> View installed updates.
Question: Can I enable automatic updating for the system installed with this assembly?
Answer: Yes, you can use the auto-update.
Question: Are there any restrictions on installation there, except for the system requirements?
Answer: Yes, there is. To start the installation of the new system in EFI / UEFI mode, out of the existing system is not possible. Run the installation of the system under the existing system in the format of the old system updates impossible. Installing a 32-bit system to EFI / UEFI mode (usually need to be installed on the tablet) is not possible. Setting 32-bit system using 64-bit installer impossible.
Question: Above, you wrote that in this assembly can not install the update from under the existing system, but it is possible to initiate a Custom installation. What is the difference between updates and custom installation? A: When you install the update, all files, programs, settings, operating system installed earlier, if possible (if they are compatible), will be integrated into the new OS. But, also, I would like to note that all file system errors, registry, etc. You can also go to the new OS. With a custom installation on top of the old operating system, all the contents of this operating system is stored on the system HDD / SSD Windows.Old section in the folder, from where it then, if necessary, can be transferred to a freshly installed OS. After "pulling" the right content, the Windows.old folder can be safely deleted.
Q: Which program you can recommend to deploy the assembly to the stick?
Answer: For this purpose, I highly recommend the program Rufus . This is the only known me a program that helps you deploy the assembly on a USB flash drive that has been formatted in NTFS, without losing an opportunity to install EFI / UEFI mode. And do not touch once again setting - the program knows which mode is optimal for the image. Q: I did not receive pre-boot menu with a choice of bit installer. Why? A: Your computer supports the installation of the EFI mode / UEFI and chose this mode for installation. Installing EFI / UEFI with this assembly is only possible using the 64-bit installer, so there is no choice.
Question: At the initial stage of the installation I get the message "The system seems to lack either network cards or network drivers". What is it?
Answer: This is a notice that the installer did not find the active network card. This may be due to her lack of physical computer, and the absence in the driver installer for your specific model of network card. In any case, do not worry. On installation and operation of the system is not affected. Click OK, and safely continue with the installation.
