Well, it is assumed that you could unbox it without further guidance. But then what ...

1. Switch off the PC.

2. Disassemble (or electrically disconnect) your current Operating System disk.

3. Put in the RAM-OS disk and preferrable put it in a (2.5") hot-swap removable bay.

4. Boot.

4a. Watch for possible messages, related to your PC hardware environment; answer upon them accordingly.



(Password is xx)
What comes up, cold from the box, is Windows 10, Build 10565. It is denoted TRIAL in the Boot Men, we will soon learn.

Windows 10, 10565 TRIAL is not to be used and it is present for "servicing" purposes only. Your first start up wit the RAM-OS disk is an example of that.
10565 booted in Normal OS Mode. Notice that it contains an Activated XXHighEnd just the same.


Edit, because of something which was forgotten to set :

Edit, July 4, 2016 : The below is only in order for those who order(ed) the RAM OS Disk outside of the Stealth Mach II LPS PC. So the SSD shipped with that PC is all fine for this (so you can skip the text until the next horizontal line below).

Pull out the Ethernet cable (from the Internet) NOW.
Done ?

As we know, Windows 10 likes to update your PC (Operating System, thus itself) and it can do it fast. But we don't want that !! Most probably it won't even work out and it will be destructive. Now, XXHighEnd can prevent the Updates and it should have been pre-set - but it wasn't. So now you must do that yourself as the first thing. Now read through the below first (do nothing yet) so you will learn how to boot into the OS of your liking. Please do so now (but don't do it for real yet).
...
Done ?

Then now for each BASE OS (not the Memory-denoted ones), also the TRIAL OS, do this FIRST :

Boot into each of the OSes, start XXHighEnd, RichtClick the Stop button and choose "stop W10 Updates" (for W8 this won't work, but it is also not necessary, so skip W8).

In case you read this later (and sort of "too late") :
do this in Normal OS Mode (per OS !) or otherwise it will not stick at gooing back from Minimized OS Mode to Normal Mode.

January 26, 2016, Edit :
It appears that annother thing has been forgotten for 10565 BASE and 10586.0 BASE : Shut off Windows Defender.
So along with applying the above, please also shut off Windows Defender per this small Tutorial :
Windows 8/10 Tutorials - Shut off Windows Defender
In 10565 TRIAL, Defender can stay on if you like.

If you have done this for each of the OSes (W8 not necessary) then you can put back in the Ethernet cable.


From here on you are going to choose what your first real RAM-OS boot is going to be. Thus, is that e.g. 10586(.0) then you are going to boot into that OS. It goes like this (start XXHighEnd (2.05 is installed in there) and) :


RightClick the Stop Button. Then :


Choose Boot Into. Then :


Select the OS you want to boot into 10586 in our example).
Notice that here it shows that 10586 is the current Boot, but in your (first Boot) case it will show 10565.

When you have done this, first click the Apply button (down-right corner) and after that click the Reboot button.

With a bit of luck, you will end up with Windows 10 Build 10586.0 running.

Again watch for messages related to your hardware environment.

Watch out :
All OSes at first boot run in Normal OS Mode. This is so you can install Drivers.
NOS1(a) users :  or let your NOS1(a) be recognized (for those owning the NOS1(a); also notice that the NOS1 Driver 1.04 is Installed and active and that in the XX Folder(s) the Driver.tss files are present (read : Driver 1.04 will be active all the way)).
When all is set (up) you can freely boot into Minimized OS.


Just the procedure as you are used to.

Watch out : Booting from Normal OS to MinOS (or the other way around) normall boots into the same OS.
BUT
Do not attempt such switching from a RAM-booted OS because the data registering for that will get lost (because it will be written to RAM only).

When your 10586.0 pops up again it will show that you're in MinOS with the procedure as usual.

Side note :
By this time you should have your Network up and running for the music to play. This is another subject, dealt with elsewhere. In any even you can do what you want (like have internal disks with music or USB connected music, etc. etc.
However, this is not really the purpose. But take your time with that.

Once in MinOS you can decide to try a RAM boot, of that OS you now "installed" in MinOS indeed. So notice :

What you have done at this moment is preparing an OS for MinOS in permanent storage (which the the RAM-OS disk). So in our example this is 10586.0. If we now do this :


... do not forget to click Apply and then Reboot, the harddisk image is going to be copied to memory (RAM) and from there it is booted.

Notice that a bit depending on your PC it can take 3 minutes for the boot accomplishes.

Now do notice that the other Operating Systems (W8, W10 10074 and 10565) are still in Normal OS mode. And, of course you can use that just the same, as you will be able to boot that from RAM via the same procedure as just described, but it will obviously only be MinOS when you ordered for that.
Thus : don't fall in the pitfal that you switched to MinOS for one OS and did not think about the others. It must be done for each (which thus at first boots into Normal OS so Drivers can be installed). That is, if you want it.


When you booted into a "Memory" OS, you can remove the HDD if you like ...
(and put it back when you want to (re)boot)


So far the Unboxing !
