    Step 3:

    Do you have to install SIM and ADK on the workstation you are running sysprep? Can the unattened be built on a separate management desktop? Seems odd to have SIM/ADK on the machine your prepping.

    Short answer:

    Yes.


    Long answer:

    As I have mentioned several times in thread, this tutorial as most of the content here at TenForums.com is intended for private users. This method for instance is suitable for a user with a single PC or a relatively small network. Read for instance this post.

    That being said, I wanted to describe the method in such a way that also a user with a single PC could understand and follow it without any additional issues. In doing that I seem to have forgotten those with multiple computers, trusting too much that something in my opinion obvious would be as obvious to them.

    Of course you can use any computer and any operating system to create your answer file. You can use a Linux text editor to compose it manually, or for instance a Windows 7 PC by installing Windows 10 ADK and creating your answer file on that PC.

    If I create an admin profile that I want in every deployment of my image and then do the oobe on the sysprep it still makes me create a user account when I restore and setup the target computer, is there a way to possibly skip that user creation and just use that profile I created that's included in the image?

    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 - Katrin.

    Dear Kari,

    I'm supporting an enterprise deployment and we're using Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB (which reports as "Version 10.0 (Build 10240)" in 'winver'). I've performed the following steps:


    • Clean install
    • Audit mode
    • Customisation
      • Drivers
      • Software
      • No updates
      • Kari's quickaccess cleaner .bat

    • sysprep (generalize, oobe, unattend.xml specifying copyprofile=true)
    • deploy image


    This is fine, and Windows Search works for all created user accounts...

    ...UNLESS
    Windows Update is run. As soon as it is, it installs Security Update KB3135174, and any subsequently created user accounts receive a broken search. If KB3135174 is removed, new user accounts get a working search, and existing accounts that had a broken search start working. If it's reinstalled, new user accounts get a broken search again.

    Do I have any options, or do I have to just give up on the customised default profile?

    Hi Katrin!

    See this Microsoft TechNet article for various deployment scenarios: Deploy Windows 10 (Windows 10). I just checked, it seems it is only available in English.

    An alternative method is Windows ICD (Imaging and Configuration Designer):



    There is a trick which in most cases fixes Search when it is not working for a specific user. Simply deleting the %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\UsrClass.dat file (file is hidden by default) and rebooting have fixed the issue in most tests I've done. I have not tested yet how to best implement this, automatically deleting the file and making an extra reboot to deployment image.

    Thanks for the reply, this works for creating the account but it still asks me to create a user during the initial windows setup where you select the time zone and such. I'm trying to just bypass that user creation screen during the setup. I really appreciate you helping me out.

    @jimmysmalls My apologies! A small mistake in my previous reply to you: You need to add the LocalAccounts component to Pass 7 OobeSystem, not Pass 5 AuditSystem.

    Sorry. I have no explanation why I mixed those two passes in my post.
