Windows 9 ( Windows 8.1 Embedded Industry Pro 64-bit by Jfarre20 )
This is a modified version of Windows 8.1 Embedded Industry Pro. I call it "Windows 9". It was designed to bring back the UI from Windows 7, while keeping the kernel improvements from 8.1. If you are in college, check if you have a Microsoft Imagine subscription. You can usually get an 8.1 Embedded Industry Pro license key from Microsoft Imagine for free.Windows 9 is x64 only - this will not work on 32 bit systems.
This is not pirated version of Windows ! You need your own license key to activate this operating system.
System Requirements :
• Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2
• RAM: 2 GB (64-bit)
• Hard disk space: 20 GB (64-bit)
• Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver

1.96 - Replaced custom theme dll files with original files, now using unsignedthemes service (memory patcher) for new theme engine. This should prevent black screens from updates or sfc /scannow. Removed Google Chrome and 7Zip, Injected all non-optional Windows Updates (As of 2017 December 13), Updated 7+ Taskbar Tweaker to 220.127.116.11, Updated OldNewExplorer to 18.104.22.168, Dism Reset base to shrink image.
1.96+ - Same as 1.96 but with Google Chrome and 7Zip preinstalled. Attempted experimental capture method that skips capturing regeneratable files (.log files for example) to shrink image so it could still fit on DVD. If you notice weird issues, use Win9 1.96 (non plus).
Note FIX Black Screen :
Instructions: Download, burn to cd/dvd or write to usb stick using windows usb tool,rufus,or WiNToBootic. Boot to usb/cd and let script run. Then you should have a fixed machine!
