  1. How would somebody request a Czech language section over here?: http://reboot.pro/fo...-international/
  2. Are there any Czech-fluent reboot.pro people reading this message?  There's a fellow who has expressed an interest in paying for help, but after more than 4 hours of excruciating Google Translate interactions, the language barrier has proven to be too much for me to handle without a human, bilingual intermediary.
  3. Has anyone ever taken an HDD image of a Windows 10 installation and managed to boot it as a RAM disk, from GRUB4DOS?  (Or at least from a BIOS-based boot environment, since GRUB4DOS can chain to other such environments.)

Thank you for your time and have a happy all the things.

I'm not sure i understand your message but i manage to boot as small as 1.51g Win10 x64 vhd  loaded to ram through grub4dos.

I can outline the procedure if anyone is interested but i don't speak Czech.

No Czech either, but I would also suggest the VHD approach.  I have seen posts here about converting a running system to VHD, and also booting a vhd.  


I also know that easy2boot can take a ptn "image" (i.e. a partion image) and pass it to grub4dos to load into RAM to boot.  Sounds like some pointes to go by - and yes - remote support is tough enough without any language barrier.


Best of luck!
