    Russian forum discussing this problem it was said that this problems happens onlyfor those who have two OSes using different OneDrive settings.
    This is simply not true.

    For instance in my case at the moment I have three real machines with a clean install of Build 9860, all of them have this issue, no other operating systems, no dual boot or such. The same with each and every vm I have installed Build 9860 using an MS account.

    In all of these, the real machines and virtual machines, I am only using one MS account with same synchronized settings, and can reproduce this issue simply by killing the Explorer process and relaunching Explorer.

    EDIT:

    Added this to show how easily the issue is reproduced. The ZIP file contains a GIF animation from my desktop (Build 9860) just now:
    OneDrive_SplashScreenIssue.zip. Just killing the Explorer process and relaunching it causes the OneDrive first run splash screen to be shown.

    Yeah Kari it may have turned out to not be true but it was kind to post the theory posed in his forum nonetheless.

    That said, has the issue been resolved?

    Thanks.

    My point was only to tell that what was told on another site is not true and presented my findings to support my statement. Nothing else. I do not believe that not posting what I posted, although it had been "nicer" in the name of peace and avoiding possible conflicts, had been better as it had possibly left the readers of this thread to think that that's the cause of this issue.

    As far as I know the issue is not resolved.

    Sorry, I have incorrectly used ONLY in the message I've read in our discussion. And on our forum the same situation as here: someones yet not eliminated pop-up despite all attempts. But in my case it helped. Moreover to verify proposed solution I've done two more TP installation in the same notebook: one on WTG and one into VHD. Both works fine using the same F:\OneDriveOrigin directory as OneDrive location as other OSes. Main difference between mine and your practice is that you run some OSes in parallel but me run those OSes one-by-one.

    No, I run mine one by one, not parallel. Only one OS (Win10TP) installed on each machine. No dual boot or nothing.

    I have also tried to disable OneDrive when this splash screen is shown when installing by selecting Turn off these settings (not recommend), my idea being that I can then turn the sync on later after installation has finished. This has no effect, disabling the setting while installing does nothing, the setting is enabled automatically when Windows has finished installing.

    If you run one by one then maybe you can provide the same OneDrive location for, say two of computers with the same letter on USB drive or flash and verify my case ? If pop-up again appears after re-boot of each of machines then my recipe is not appropriate for you.

    I had this isue a while ago. I think I clicked the "Turn off these OneDrive settings" to get rid of it.

    I understand turning off sync is not an option for some users
    I am using a MS account to log in

    You might be able to dismiss this prompt by clicking the "Turn off these..." and then manually configuring sync in PC Settings or in OneDrive settings

    I'm sorry I can't be more specific, but I've rebuilt so many Win10 machines because I break stuff that I forget what was done to resolve or get around a specific issue.

    I thought I had made this clear already:

    • I use the same MS account on each W10TP machine, real or virtual
    • All W10TP machines are single boot
    • The location of OneDrive folder on each machine is exactly the same, on real machines E:\Users\Kari\OneDrive, on virtual machines C:\Users\Kari\OneDrive
    • Location of OneDrive folder is irrelevant having nothing to do with this issue
    • Sync enabled or disabled is irrelevant having nothing to do with this issue
    • Issue can be reproduced for 100% sure in all my installations whatever folder location or sync settings have been used simply by killing the Explorer.exe process and relaunching it which will automatically present the OneDrive first run splash screen

    I cannot make this any clearer.
