    Finally!

    Got it working. Testing a few more times, I want to be sure the workaround is valid and works every time before posting it.

    Interesting. How have the abilities and granularity changed as things have moved from Win 7 > 8 > 10?

    Basically yes, only more comprehensive. If you check the Part Five, steps 5.9 to 5.12, that's where you can customize about everything, from splash and lock screens to almost every visual element of the UI, as well as many non-visual features.

    This tutorial is meant to be more an introduction to image customization than a complete walkthrough, only covering the basics, but I will be happy to answer any questions about more advanced functions, what's possible and what's not.

    I like the Audit Mode very much as a tool in preparing Windows before any user accounts are created. In Windows 10 Tech preview the Hyper-V virtualization is native, nothing is easier than to set up a Windows 10 vm, enter Audit Mode and create a checkpoint (snapshot, allows restoring to checkpoint in a few seconds, kind of speed imaging), then start testing various answer files with SIM as told in Part Five. If it does not work, restore your checkpoint and start from beginning.

    I have been toying with the idea but always decided against; the process itself is quite simple:
    1. Boot to Audit Mode
    2. Personalize
    3. Use the Windows System Image Manager to create the answer file (= instructions set for Sysprep)
    4. Run Sysprep

    "An App" to do this would only be used in phases 3 and 4, of those two I could never create a user interface as practical, logical and simple as the one SIM already has, so basically only part in "my app" would be to run sysprep command. No use in creating an app to run one single command which takes user a few seconds to type.
    Would it be able to do something similar to this? I really liked using this Win 7 tutorial.

    Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer

    I feel in the future Win 10 should be deployed to VHDs for Native Boot and we should be able to move it off a machine to a newer one when need as time moves forward - OS + Apps + Settings | Only hardware profiles + drivers need to change after a SysPrep.

    Is there a similar tutorial for Win 7 on EightForums?

    That tutorial works as it is in exactly the same way and applies to Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. The principle is the same, the sysprep command is the same, the procedure, flow of things to do is exactly the same.

    If you want to move a Windows 10 installation to a new computer simply follw instructions on the tutorial you mentioned at our sister site the Seven Forums.

    Great. This is the thing. I'd like to create two .VHDs (Win 8.1 and Win 10) - for Native boot on Surface Pro 3. There seems to be some issue getting Win 8.1 VHDs to work on Surface Pro 3 as pointed out here.
    Surface pro 3 - boot to vhd (Native Boot)
    Surface Pro 3 - Boot to VHD (Native Boot) - Issues

    Is there an Enterprise/ Admin guide that points to something different to be done for Surface Pro 3?

    I am not aware of any Surface Pro 3 specific guides or tutorials. Sorry.

    BTW, you know Disk2VHD? If not and if you want to create a VHD of your existing Surface Pro 3 Windows 8.1 or 10, see this tutorial: Hyper-V - Create and Use VHD of Windows 10 with Disk2VHD - Windows 10 Forums

    I am trying to use Bluetooth mouse/keyboard in OOBE with Win 10 10130. I don't see any HID pairing page. Is there anything I have to do enable it?

    Hi Krish, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    Did you use the generalize switch with sysprep in Audit Mode? You should install the the drivers for your bluetooth devices in Audit Mode, then if generalizing use the PersistAllDeviceInstalls ​component in answer file which lets you generalize to copy the theme and customizations but keeps the installed drivers.

    Hi Kari,
    Thanks for the response. I didn't got into audit mode. I was talking about using BT HID devices in OOBE mode. Do I need to install BT drivers separately? My understanding is, its available as part of the install.

    The whole idea of this tutorial is to customize the Windows image in Audit Mode, then sysprep it. As your issue is in no way related to this tutorial and this thread, and as I really do not know how you could get your Bluetooth devices to work during the installation (OOBE), I suggest you start a new thread in the Drivers & Hardware section, giving as much information as possible.

    Kari,

    I was wondering what your possible fix was. I have been fighting with this same issue for days now and some of the "workarounds" just don't seem to be working very well.
