    Audit mode

    Hi Diane,

    Windows boots into Windows Welcome Mode and Audit Mode. Windows Welcome Mode
    is the first user experience while the Audit mode is used to add customization to Windows images. Sometimes, Windows keeps running in Audit Mode and user has no idea about it, just like in your case. While your machine is running Audit
    Mode when upgrading or reinstalling Windows 10, the upgrade won’t progress.

    Here's how to exit from Audit mode to reinstall Windows 10:

    • Open the administrative or elevated Command Prompt. Type cmd in the
      Search
      field at the taskbar.
    • Type the following command and press Enter key: sysprep /oobe /generalize
      DISCLAIMER: Running sysprep command each time resets Windows licensing state to default. So if your Windows is activated and you run this command, you’ll need to reactivate Windows after executing this command.

    • Once the command IS successfully executed, you’ll be out of Audit Mode. Now you can re-try to upgrade to Windows 10 and it should work.

    Let us know if the steps above worked for you.

    Windows 10 Audit mode and Windows Updates

    Hi ScottCharlton1,

    Using the Windows 10 Audit Mode is a good way to bypass the
    Out-Of-Box Experience (OOBE)
    on your Windows, specially if what you'll need for troubleshooting is the built-in administrator. To get more information on
    Audit Mode, you can use this article as reference. There are a few things that you can
    perform as well, when booting Windows to Audit Mode or OOBE. You can use some of these commands and steps as reference on this
    link.

    To answer your question if can you install Windows 10 updates while in Audit Mode, no. Because this will render the
    Windows Update locked. However, you should be able to install the updates that your computer would be needing manually. I recommend that you perform the steps shared by
    Forum Moderator Kate Li (MSFT CSG) posted last March 3, 2017 on this
    link for further information.

    Please don't hesitate to keep me posted with the results, for me to assist you further.

    Windows 10 Audit mode and Windows Updates

    I apologize for the confusion on this, but I've been hitting a lot of brick walls with sysprep and WIndows 10.

    I'm rebuilding an image from scratch. With Windows 10, should I boot into Audit Mode and install all my applications, and configure my desktop and my start menu, then should I boot out of audit mode and install windows updates? Problem is, once I'm in
    Audit mode, I can only boot into generalize, and that captures the image which I don't want to do.

    So my question is this: Can I install windows 10 updates while in Audit mode? Should I install them in Audit mode?
