    Windows 10 Pre-Installation Partition

    Hi there, I've tried to find the answer to my question in the forums here but can't seem to find it. Sorry if it has already been posted somewhere.

    What I'm trying to figure out is how to set up a PRE-Windows 10 environment on a physical pc and also on a VMWare virtual pc. What I mean is the type of Windows 10 installation that you'll see when you buy a new pc. When you power-on a new pc for th very first time, typically you'll be greeted with a number of questions asking about your region / language, what username you want to use to sign in to the pc etc ...

    I would like to find out how to prepare a physical computer like that and also how it's done with a VMWare virtual pc. So that when you power up the computer, it will also greet you with the same series of first-time Windows 10 startup questions.

    Many thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.

    You need to look at sysprep that's how it's done or something like nlite can do some of it

    I do not think OP is trying to oobe an existing install.

    As far as I can tell, Op simply needs to do a clean install.
