Installation[edit | edit source]

  • As typical of builds in this build range, it tends to take a long time to install and can be unstable.

No mouse driver in WinPE[edit | edit source]

On some computers and virtualizers, the WinPE doesn't support the mouse, so you must use the keyboard to navigate the WinPE. This seems to be related to using a PS/2 mouse, as USB mice seems to work fine for the setup.
