    Customizing Windows 10


    Hello Forum Users,

    My question relates to customizing Windows 10 image to be deployed in workplace.

    Last evening I was watching video on YouTube where two people from Microsoft demoed Nano Server. I understand that Nano server is deeply customized, however, can we do some customization to Windows 10 in order to get rid of some features that we do not use in corporate environment. For example, Hyper-V will be first candidate to be removed, as in corporate environment end users will not use Hyper-V.

    Overall, I want to increase Windows 10 footprint, and make it faster.

    Best regards.


    :)

  2. Windows 10 Unexpected shutdown on start up

    OK, so i figured it out myself

    Found the logfile in "C:\Windows\Minidump".

    You need the Windows Development Kit to open it and a bit of googling to understand it.

    Found out that a Daemon driver caused an error. Removed Daemon but this didn't solve it. (ps: Daemon itself worked normally).

    I let hibernate my computer again and found another error with sptd2.sys: SCSI Pass Through Direct layer

    More google and ended up on the duplexsecure site. Downloaded the W10 version and voila: problem fixed.

    For the Windows support team: It would be really helpfull if you could pass problems to a more skilled helpdesk who can do more than proposing the standard solutions in case those won't work.

    Cheers

  3. Windows 10 Unexpected shutdown on start up

    OK, so I also found out that this occurs when sleepmode (for me after 3 hours) changes into hibernate mode.

    Seems like the going into hibernate and/or starting up from HIbernate results in a shutdown. In safeboot it works perfectly.

    Anyone any idea how I can figure out where it goes wrong. Is there a way to log this (I couldn't find it in bootlog)

    Thank you for your reply. That is of course one option, however, what I want is to remove some features completely so that Windows 10 gets "lighter".

    Beside those, which other features would you like to remove ?
    You could uninstall all APPs for instance, some of them work in the background: Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums[1]=Programs%20Features for instance.
    Or turn Cortana off: Cortana - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums[1]=Programs%20Features
    Superfetch/prefetch can be turned off in services.
    Hibernate can also be turned off to save disk space: Command Prompt (as administrator): powercfg.exe /hibernate off
