    SysprepAudit mode still not answering customization questions

    I am at a school and have 150 laptops to image. I use VMWare to create a virtual build of Windows 10 and I have put the virtual machine into audit mode per your instructions/tutorial. When I capture the image and deploy it to a laptop the customization questions still appear (i.e. Browser and Protection - User SmartScreen online services....On/Off & Connectivity and Error reporting). I set all of those answers to OFF in my audited virtual machine but it still asked me for all of them again. I also created a unattend.xml with the product key but the system is not taking the product key and it appears that a different number has been input. I placed the product key I use on my KMS into the Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup area.

    The apps that I installed (i.e. Firefox and Chrome) are there but I am basically having to answer all of the questions that the system should have taken care of for me. Do you have any suggestions?

    With so many to do I am trying to cut as many steps out of my image process as I can. Thanks for the wonderful tutorials and forum!

    I just read on Microsoft's website that I may need to select:
    SkipMachineOOBE setting in the Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup component.

    This will force the system to skip over the opening questions that allow a user to set those settings for themselves. My only concern is that it will leave those settings in the default ON position. Thoughts?

    After further reading it states that, since I am a school, that is imaging for all of my users and not a true OEM than I am also able to skip the OOBE and user an oobe.xml file to force all of those settings to be set at boot. I am researching this further.

    If anyone has any input I would love to hear it.
