AME 21H1 To AME 11#

This guide describes how to upgrade your AME 21H1 install to AME 11 with AME Wizard.


We recommend backing up your most important files before attempting this.


To follow this guide, you’ll need the following resources:

  1. The latest release of Central AME Script

  2. A stock Windows 11 23H2 ISO (Download)

Install Windows 11 23H2#

With the downloaded Windows 11 ISO on hand, run the downloaded amecs.exe on the target machine, then navigate to Uninstall AME and follow the on-screen instructions. Your system will restart to restore system files.

Once Windows setup has finished, you will be greeted with a de-ameliorated Windows 10 install.


If you run into hardware compatibility issues, try creating an installation USB using Rufus. Then choose Uninstall AME using a Windows USB in amecs.exe.

Applying Updates#

Before ameliorating using the AME 11 Playbook, all pending updates should be installed beforehand.

To do so, open the settings app and select Windows Update > Check for Updates.


Once you have restarted after installing updates, double check that all updates have been installed, as Windows can take multiple restarts to fully update the system.

Ameliorate Windows 11#

Now that Windows 11 is installed and ready, you can begin the amelioration process as normal by following our Running A Playbook guide.
