    Sysprep audit mode - remove\prevent bloatware from Store


    Hi,

    While in Sysprep audit mode what is the cleanest way to remove the bloatware that MS inists upon installing from the Store? I have seen a few different scripts and the goal is to remove this crap and prevent it from returning. So assuming there is a good way of doing this in Audit mode is it also best to disable WiFi access so the Store cannot try to load more junk just prior to sysprep?

    Thanks.

    :)

    Customize Windows 10 Image in Audit Mode with Sysprep  


    Just a few pointers:
    • You can always boot to Audit Mode even after the OOBE, command is
      %windir%\System32\Sysprep\Sysprep.exe /audit /reboot
    • When rebooted to Audit Mode and if you like to re-customize the default user profile, it will only affect all future user accounts but does not affect existing ones already present when you booted to Audit Mode. You can of course remove all existing user accounts if necessary before sysprepping
    • If rebooted to Audit Mode and existing user accounts are kept, you cannot use those usernames when back in OOBE after sysprepping. To create the initial user in OOBE you can for example simply create a dummy local user, let Windows finish the OOBE and boot to this dummy's desktop, sign out and sign in to your original admin account and remove the dummy account
    • Sysprepping an upgraded Windows is of course possible and only needs a key and a DWORD deleted in the registry and changing the value of two DWORDs. Instructions in this tutorial: Users Folder - Move Location in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums, scroll down to the last part named Upgrade and its Step 2

    Hi,

    I have the same Problem like CanadianGooses with the Search-Bar using the LTSB-Release and the audit-mode.

    (Windows 10 Image - Customize in Audit Mode with Sysprep - Page 32 - Windows 10 Forums)

    But only, if the image is deployed as a part of a iso-file. How do you deploy your wim-file? Has anyone found a solution?


    Thanks und greetings from Germany - .
