    No, you don't need wim file. In fact you can completely remove CPI source reference from answer file, the highlighted part:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
    <settings pass="specialize">
    <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="" xmlns:xsi="">
    <cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:X:/sources/install.wim#Windows 10 Pro" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
    If you have a preinstalled OEM Windows I recommend to restore a system image and forget this procedure, some OEM installations have other measures in place preventing successful sysprep.

    If Windows is clean installed by you, you have two options: either re-install or restore a system image and try again, or re-install and forget this procedure.

    Thank you for posting this thread. I followed the steps provided to create a deployable image; but have encountered an error.
    The copyprofile process creates a situation where the "Windows Search" button located on the taskbar and start menu does not work. Has anyone encountered this and do you have a fix?
    Thank you,

    This is an interesting tutorial.

    I had a problem yesterday of not being able to create a new user account on my desktop PC following installing the Anniversary Update. This was due to a corrupt default user profile. I corrected the problem by copying the default user profile from my Laptop running the AU version. I don't know the best way to restore the default user profile - see Best Source for a Default User Profile?

    Should I use your method to create a new unmodified default user profile or just copy one of the sources mentioned in my link above?

    Hello Kari The Finn,
    I am from Brazil and I am homologating Windows 10 PRO in the company where I work I need to get a big doubt, I made the processes as informed up everything worked properly the profile copy, but when I create another user it correctly appears the customizations that I did before , Only that I need that does not appear to me the standard applications of Windows 10 ex. (GET THE OFFICE, GET THE SKYPE Etc ...), when I was in authoring mode customizing Windows I got to remove all these apps, but when, would there be some way for me to do not show these apps to the Other user I create.
