    Thank you for your reply.

    Please confirm you've already tried reinstalling Cortana.

    In the post I quoted you will find the idea of creating a new user account for test purposes.
    Please do that and compare the outcome.
    This discriminates Windows issues from those particular to a user profile.

    Try the search troubleshooter: search Settings for search, More results, probably the bottom result

    Sysprep Windows 10 Start Menu search is blank


    Hello everyone,

    I was following the Tenforums.com Windows 10 Image - Customize in Audit Mode with Sysprep guide, which I found to be an amazing guide.

    My goal is to have a Windows 10 Pro x64 sysprep image from the Hyper-V VM, exactly as in the guide.

    Anyways I had everything going smooth - I was about to Generalize the image and realized the Start Menu stopped returning results, instead just showing a blank search.

    After some frustration and reluctance I went back to the checkpoint at the very beginning (as indicated in the guide). The Start Menu still showed up blank.

    Reinstalled the VM in Hyper-V using different names and different VHD files but all resulted in the same error.

    Created the VM in VMware Workstation 12 and and started the Sysprep process with Windows 10 in VMware. The Start Menu is still blank.

    Uninstalled Hyper-V and reinstalled Hyper-V but that didn't help.

    I've done the basic troubleshooting steps too:

    • Reboot system (Host and Guest systems multiple times)
    • Verified service Windows Search is running (I restarted the service as well)
    • Rebuilt Index
    • Restarted Cortana and Windows Explorer
    • Re-registered Cortana

    I've tried Googling my heart out to no avail. Couldn't even find an image with a similar problem. I've attached a snippet of the issue below.

    Note: This is only in Audit Mode. When I let the Windows install complete, the Start Menu works again. I'll try completing the imaging process and load the Sysprep image and see if the Start Menu functionality comes back unless someone has a better idea or similar experience?
