Windows 10: CloudExperienceHostBroker triggering restart during OOBE after AUDIT

    CloudExperienceHostBroker triggering restart during OOBE after AUDIT

    Hi Dears,
    I'm just trying to change the profiles directory and ProgramData directory paths after a Windows 10 upgrade to allocate these in D:\Users and D:\ProgramData respectively (source OS: Windows 8 Pro installed just to perform a clean upgrade), but I'm having a problem. After installing Windows 10 I execute the sysprep with the unattended XML as follows:
    • sysprep /oobe /reboot /unattend:D:\Unattended.XML

    It performs the cleanup and restarts the system into OOBE, but it always get restarted in the "Just a moment" screen after Customize Settings (Just to be clear, step 18 of guide Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums).

    At first glance I thought it was a drivers issue (I have read somewhere that users with NVIDIA cards where facing issues during the customizations, so I tried adding the PersistAllDeviceInstalls as true in the unattended, and now I think it is not the problem.

    Instead, what I did is I have just restarted everything, reinstalled windows 8 pro, upgraded to win 10 and executed the sysprep with the XML just once till it was restarted again, then after the restart I just executed the console with SHIFT+F10 and executed the eventvwr, and luckily me I found the error:

    CloudExperienceHostBroker.exe is triggering a restart during the customization, and the reason for the restart is "System Reconfiguration".

    The problem now is that I don't know how to solver or skip this, I tried replacing the EXE with a cmd.exe, and it just broke the oobe and I had to restart anyways.

    I was looking for information around unfortunately without any valuable information, has someone faced this before? Do you think it is failing because I'm doing something wrong somewhere else? How should I proceed?

    I have this issue, as well... In the event that anyone else has this, I did some digging on this and found a solution for my cause:

    To do this:
    1) At the OOBE hit SHIFT+F10 to get a command prompt
    2) Turn on UAC: reg add hklm\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\system /v EnableLUA /t reg_dword /d 1 /f
    3) Reboot: shutdown -f -r -t 1

    Once the computer restarted and entered OOBE everything worked as it should!

    Hope this helps. :)

    Any additional information with this issue? I am also encountering "CloudExperienceHostBroker" causing a restart during OOBE due to "System Reconfiguration".

    My system was already set with EnableLUA = 1, so I tried flipping it to 0 without any luck.

    CloudExperienceHostBroker from the little bit I can find seems to be related to AzureAD, a feature I have no intention of using. I also cannot find any information on disabling or removing this.
