    Audit Mode going into OOBE

    Hello all,

    Why is it that when I am in audit mode and I set my .theme package, I then OOBE out, and it deletes the theme that I installed? Do I need to add the theme to an unattended XML file?

    Simply because you are doing it wrong, most probably sysprepping without a correct answer file and / or not using the /generalize switch.

    All desktop modifications and theme personalisations done in Audit Mode are copied to Default user profile and kept and carried over to all later user profiles only if you sysprep with an answer file where the CopyProfile component is set to be TRUE, and sysprep command is run with /generalize switch.

    Set CopyProfile = TRUE in answer file and use /generalize switch with sysprep command.
