Hi,

 

Is it possible to add additional software like Microsoft Office, etc. on a Windows 10 USB Installation drive and not have it interfere with installing a clean installation of Windows 10?

 

If so how would I go about doing that? Just add it to the USB drive after I set it up using Microsoft's process as offered here?

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 

 

I will be using an eight GB USB drive, should be plenty of room for anything I want to add.

 

I remember this could be done on previous Windows OSs, can it be done with Windows 10?

 

Thanks,

 

John

That was called 'Slipstreaming' & the software used back then was RT7Lite. Can't say if the software will really work for Win10, but Win10 is listed, & neither can I vouch for the following website:

 

https://softfamous.com/rt-seven-lite/

 

A now dated guide, Apr 2011, for using it with older OS can be found here: https://lifehacker.com/5793427/how-to-create-a-custom-windows-installation-dvd-or-usb-install

I would think there would be 'Other' Tools available now.

 

You could try Googling 'Slipstream Windows 10'  & perhaps search on YouTube. 

 

In the meantime await more replies.
