What is AME Wizard and ReviOS Playbook?
AME Wizard is an open-source tool that modifies running Windows systems with Playbooks, which includes various customizations such as applying registry tweaks, removing system components, etc.
With the help of AME Wizard, ReviOS Playbook customizes running Windows by removing bloatware and unnecessary system components, improving privacy and system performance while maintaining compatibility, for more information, read features here. Keep in mind, ReviOS Playbook only works with Windows
10 21H2 (19044),
10 22H2 (19045), and
11 22H2 (22621).
Differences between ReviOS Playbook and ISOs
Both versions are identical in terms of tweaks, except for the amount of storage space used. The Playbook uses a normal components cleanup method while the ISOs use more aggressive approach known as
ResetBase. This might break Windows Updates functionality, but we provide Upgrade ISOs instead to address this issue.
Differences from ISOs:
- Comes with Chocolatey Package Manager
- Option to choose other browsers and components to keep or remove
- The one-time startup script on first boot is not available when creating a new account
Which version is more reliable for daily use?
For daily use, ISOs could be more stable than the Playbook, because AME Wizard is currently in beta and may contain some bugs that cannot be covered by us.
We recommend to backup any important data before using it
Using the Playbook on an existing custom Windows
It depends on user-case. Here is the list of possible scenarios when it could be used:
- If newer Windows Updates were installed on older ReviOS builds
- If Windows itself or an user managed to install unnecessary stuff back on the latest ReviOS builds
ReviOS Playbook is designed to be used on fresh Windows or older ReviOS builds, applying it on other custom Windows will break your system.
Do I need to reapply the Playbook after using Windows Updates?
Yes! After updating, Windows reverts tweaks and restores unwanted components, thus it is recommended to reapply it.
The section is work-in-progress
To begin with, a fresh installation of Windows
10 21H2 (19044),
10 22H2 (19045), or
11 22H2 (22621) or an older ReviOS system with newer feature/cumulative updates applied is required. For fresh install, download a Windows ISO (Create Windows Installation Media) from the official website. For a more comprehensive guide, we highly recommend reading AME's documentation.
After installing it, head over to our download page to download our Playbook and AME Wizard. Open AME Wizard and merely drag-and-drop the downloaded
apbx file into the tool and disable all security features, including Realtime, Tamper Protection, Memory Integrity and Driver Blocklist.
In case AME Wizard displays ReviOS Playbook as malicious means that the current playbook has updated recently and is not yet verified by the AME team.
