    If you bought shitty hardware these days, there's really no helping you. Pretty much just need to avoid nvidia and realtek.

      It's not the first time that I "fix" someone's PC or VM by reinstalling their software on a Windows that was not tampered with.
      It's front-end of a dism.exe. When you want 'advanced' use-case, you'll have to use 3-4 different (MSMG, NTLite, DISM GUI and so forth) front-ends or dism itself from command line. I have 4 different iso's made for different users-use cases. Since I reserve the least modded iso's for others and my own use for windows is mostly gaming.. Yeah, modding isos might bite into butt, over time you'll figure out what you can do safely.
