    Update: I went and re-listened to your video again, and when you said, "... install Windows normally. When Welcome mode starts...", it did not really register. So, sorry to waste you time.
    No problems, main thing is you got it now.

    I forgot to mention I am running Win 10 Home.

    My experiment to remove all WUP, except *Store* was just as I expected... Windows Update would reinstall some or all the apps anyway.

    Interesting. CU should not do it anymore. Anyway, you can try this:

    Code:
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "ContentDeliveryAllowed" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "OemPreInstalledAppsEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "PreInstalledAppsEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "PreInstalledAppsEverEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "SilentInstalledAppsEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "SubscribedContentEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager\SuggestedApps" /f

    I used the M$ MediaCreationTool to create the ESD-USB on 07/27/17 09:23 AM.

    Right after the install, Winver: Version 1703 (OS Build 15063.0)

    After WUP, Winver: Version 1703 (OS Build 15063.483). And, these Regedit entries...

    How to upgrade a 32 GB device (or even 16GB) device when little space left.

    So here is the problem on small drives nearly full up.

    You need enough space to create windows.old which can be up to 10 GBs easily on a 32GB device.

    Usual advice is to clean install.

    So I thought about it, and came up with a slightly convoluted solution. The principal steps are given below - this is not a tutorial and I assume some knowledge of user.

    1) backup drivers as a precaution using powershell commands.

    2) Install Macrium Reflect Free or similar on device and make image backup.

    3) restore image backup to a virtual machine on a pc.

    4) upgrade windows in vm

    5) use disk cleanup to delete windows.old etc.

    6) image backup vm installation

    7) restore image backup to device

    8) reinstate any drivers if necessary from your backup (I never needed to do this though but include step just in case).

    This method works because of Windows 10's ability to be transferred to other devices usually without need to sysprep.

    If you do get driver issues, you can modify above to use sysprep commands as well.

    I have found that some devices will work the way that phones do, any added usable memory will be pooled with the default memory /disk space

    This allows for a normal update/ upgrade to work but you still need to make sure it's installed correctly with the old file landing on the extended space. This method is great to know as most devices don't like upgrades as you have stated

    I'll keep this in my back pocket. I have a 32GB tablet that may need this in the future.

    OK, I'll start.

    I searched Google and Bing with every possible search criteria I could think of, didn't find this being posted anywhere. Although I am a big fan of UWP apps, I understand those users who prefer traditional desktop apps. This video is for those members.

    Did you use the Group Policy trick, with an empty file made in Notepad?
