    Windows 10 Search not working, Build 10240 After Sysprep


    I work in a school district and have started testing Windows 10 and making images. The problem I am having is that after setting the computer up and sysprepping it to be deployed on other computers, when I put it on another computer the search function and cortana don't work at all. I can see the search at the bottom left, but clicking on it does nothing. The start menu works fine (I have seen posts where someones start menu does't work in conjunction with the search not working). It is just the search function that will not work. Below are the steps I use to customize the computer...

    1. Install Windows 10 from cd
    2. Enter Audit mode with CTRL + SHIFT + F3 after installation to customize
    3. Customize the computer the way I want it
    4. Sysprep the computer (sysprepe.exe /oobe /shutdown /generalize /unattend:myunattendfile)
    5. Capture the image.

    I have done this two different times now (full installs and customized), and both times the search function is broken after putting the image on a computer. I do not even see cortana listed anywhere in the C:\Programfiles\WindowsApps. I have tried running the suggested command "Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest*.xml"}" and it doesn;t fix the search function. Windows key + S doesn't do anything either. Has anyone experienced this issue? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!

    Windows 10 November Update (1511) not showing up in windows update

    Attempted to upgrade using media creation tool failed. The OS reverted back to build 10240 with the error "the installation failed in the first boot phase with an error during sysprep operation"

    Not very helpful.

  3. Windows 10 build 10240: settings search not working

    This worked for me:

    The problem may occur when you add a second user profile and it's because the settings aren't indexed properly.

    1. In Windows Explorer, go to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState

    2. Right click on the Indexed folder and select Properties. Click Advanced.

    3. Uncheck the 'allow files in the folder to have contents indexed....' and click ok and choose apply to subfolders and files too

    4. Right click the 'Indexed' folder again and click advanced. Check the checkbox you just unchecked.

    I didn't need to restart, but you might need to. Within one minute, the settings were indexed and the search working properly.

    Windows 10 Search not working, Build 10240 After Sysprep

    The issue was found to be Microsoft Updates that broke the search function. So technically speaking, the issue is not solved, but there is a workaround by deleting MS updates.Below is the link to the thread where the issue was found. I have a comment on that thread that shows what was further found. Basically removing the updates before or after imaging the computer will fix the search issue with ALL accounts.

    Hey Dustin I tried to PM you but I dont have enough post yet. My name is Travis, and I'm with a schools district as well and we are just now playing with 10. Have you found away to complete get rid of some of the apps like xbox, and the store? When I use the powershell command like Get-AppxPackage *xboxapp* | Remove-AppxPackage, it removes the app. But after the machine is sysprep they are all back again. Thanks in advance for all your help and will take any info you find beneficial with customizing windows 10 to fit schools district needs. Thank You!
