    I don't think this question ever been asked and can't find anywhere to take for references.

    But... the place that I can think of is in the registry.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    On DevicePath value, look for any data created with the semi-colon ( ; ) after %SystemRoot%\inf value data. Look for any additional values which pointing to the path according from your screenshot, edit it as needed.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

    Installation Sources > delete all the value data: > voila solved.

    thanks & greatly appreciated.
