Q4OS installer for Windows 10

We invite everyone who wants to help with testing of a Q4OS installer for Windows 10. It is derived from Wubi and WubiUefi projects see https://github.com/hakuna-m/wubiuefi . It will download and install a Q4OS loop image file within Windows filesystem and add related UEFI (secure boot) entries to boot Q4OS from, with no need of dedicated partition.

You can get the installer executable here https://www.q4os.org/downloads1.html . Any testing would be helpful, so if you want, please try it out and report back results.

Installation instructions: https://www.q4os.org/dqa014.html

Re: Q4OS installer for Windows 10

A few days ago I joined this forum so only now do I know this request and Q4OS Team information.

But not long ago I used the Q4OS installer for Windows on an old computer and after being satisfied with the use of this operating system I decided to install it on the hard disk by partitioning it.

The main reason I made this change (difficult, because I had to perform the partition) was that I didn't know how to change the size originally assigned to Q4OS and I needed to increase it. Another reason was my assumption that this would give me better performance.

However, soon I want to install Q4OS on a new machine with UEFI and have double booting with Windows, and I would prefer not to have to do the partition and therefore just use the Windows installer, which is faster and easier, since in practice I have not noticed much difference between the one version and the other, because the problems I had in the former have been replicated in the latter, and now I think they are problems with the hardware or certain programs. The same problems I have in Windows, although in this one they are worse.

But for this I would like to have the possibility to change the size of the space allocated to Q4OS in Windows (root.disk file) when needed, and to know, from the technical perspective of the Q4OS Team, what are the differences between these two ways of using this operating system and what are the advantages and disadvantages of each of them.

In addition, before using the Q4OS installer from Windows on a new UEFI machine, I would like detailed, easy-to-use instructions on MOK and how to use it.

Congratulations and thanks to the Q44OS Team for their excellent work.
