It did have some added benefits, like allowing us to install requested software, but the process was inefficient and time consuming. Sparing you the grueling details, we have now moved to a much more refined and efficient process that allows you, the end user, to configure and set up Windows just the way you would like! This is excellent news! However, we also understand that opening up the box and booting the system up to a Windows setup screen can be somewhat daunting. I have created this guide to walk you through the process and offer advice along the way. I hope you enjoy!
