Hi,

info for the guys who did not had the chance to get build 10074.

In RTM build 10240 the Cortana program was nagging me after the deactivation all the time. Cortana was still running and occupying RAM (to be seen via the task manager)

Found now a procedure in the following link, which works. See Reply 10

Hi,

under W10 build 10240 the "OS min" creates a black screen after the restart on my laptop, and therefore the services must be shut down manually.
Under this link is a good table (advise) with all ..... .

Edit: found the above link in the CA forum under software - "Windows 10 optimization script - A community effort?" - third post.

You agree that everybody - including yourself - who runs into troubles is directed to you, right ?

Huh, aha,

W10 build 10240 is running without any hiccups on the laptop since days. The requirement is, XXH 2.02 and a RAM disc program shall be installed on the AUDIO PC only. The keyword is AUDIO PC, no other programs shall be installed.
I'm not using a tablet, so the laptop is a "stand alone unit".

If somebody will install/run XXH 2.02 on a laptop or PC (with W10 -10240) with the a.m. preconditions questions are welcome.

Hi,

attached you will find a reliable program to shut down/disable the Defender within W10 build 10240 for sure.

Don't do this, because you can't tell what it does.

This program is frome here, and we can see the result with the task manager under Services.

Edit: Using NoDefender, we can re-enable it later if we want.  The processor load decreases by 2%.

A most interesting thread at the CA website:

http://www.computeraudiophile.com/f11-software/windows-10-optimization-script-community-effort-25361/#post454265

Given the expiration date of 10074 I've become increasingly afraid that Peter(if he resigns himself to do so) may eventually have to do something similar with Windows 10 before offerring an XXHE PC hard drive upgrade. It does look like the automatic Windows updates can be blocked, however.

Esau, you certainly are correct there. That is, if you mean to say that what has been done to 10074 also must be done for RTM, officially.
Anyway, one of the reasons that this upgrade disk is not there yet.

I have some small idea how busy you are, so I say this in a gently encouraging way and not to nag:  An "official" XXHE version for Win 10 RTM will be most welcome whenever you are able to do it.

Hi,

since the “Minimize OS” procedure is not working under W10 (build 10240)  on my laptop, I bought “Fidelizerpro“ and everything is working flawlessly ( with “no core appointment” in XXH 2.02), and, what a great sound. Never heard these details of the cymbals and snare drums on my system. 
When somebody faces the same problem under W10 (build 10240)  this program is a strong recommendation.

Joachim

P.S. The conversion from FLAC to WAV (to be seen with bigger 96KHz files)  is more slowly than before. (other CPU/core balance via “MMCSS”?)

Hi Joachim,

I don't think you see that you created your first problem yourself by being ignorant and start using a build other than 10074.
That is, I don't recall any cry for help around a problem with 10074. You just did it (me telling a 100 times everybody should not).

From a comes b comes c and now you, apparently, think it is wise to advise people to use other tweaking means to which XXHighEnd does not anticipate. So your next problem will be ? ...

Don't you see that currently I am dealing with you(r) posts already 9:1 for no reason other than you continuing something of which I say you should not ?

You can all do what you want but do not expect me to help. I just can't because you're applying stuff of which you don't know what it does. And, I won't even know whether the problem is caused by your fine tweaks or not. They may or may not have been applied by others and I can't tell and always have to sort it out
So what to do ?

In one of my last posts I gave the hint that "I just as well could stop".
Think about this, because I will HAVE TO.
You are messing it up for the others ...

Regards,
Peter

PS: You may not see it, but I see an idiot "tweaking" topic in the first place, which other people may not understand. Especially not people who are new.

PPS: You will can the last word - then I will close this topic.

Hi Peter,

thanx for your post. The beginning with W10 build 10074 was not very successful for me and I stopped with the “trials” after this post.

The installation  of XXH 2.02 on the RTM W10 build 10240 was “a piece of cake” on an “AUDIO ALONE PC” and the sound was very good. What failed was the conversion to “Minimize OS” where I ended up with
a)   a creation of a restore point was not possible with XXH (this note came from XXH) and
b)   with a black screen and a white mouse pointer.

Due to the situation that the “Minimze OS” procedure failed on my system, I fumbled with the “audio optimization” of W10 by shutting down services etc., but with my limited experience there would never be an amazing SQ on my system.
You mentioned with Reply#21 on the forum that it is not your intention to make double work with the “Minimize OS” procedure for the RMT W10 ( http://www.phasure.com/index.php?topic=3303.msg35693#msg35693  ), and so a search in the internet started and ended with Fidelizer Pro. This program is a replacement of your “Minimize OS” procedure, works flawlessly, and I have the best sound ever on my system. Very analog without any digital glare. This program handles the “core appointment” differently, and the system (OS) slows down (with full intention) a little in favour for the SQ, and that is noticeable.

The software W10 build 10240 + XXH 2.02 + RAMdisc +  foreign OS minimizer is running without any problems on my “audio only PC” and the SQ exceeds my expectations. (no remote control from another PC + music replay in attended mode only)

I do believe a lot audiophiles are waiting for a XXH update for  RTM  W10.
See Reply#10 - http://www.phasure.com/index.php?topic=3305.msg35741;topicseen#msg35741

The main message is, XXH 2.02 creates the best SQ on my system ever.
