    Hi I too encountered this issue with building images for Windows 10 since pretty much the first release my workaround has been to disconnect from the internet and restart the machine then the greyed out options are able to be changed hope this helps
    hi.. i ended up using a public kms key from this list:
    Appendix A: KMS Client Setup Keys

    sysprep will clean it up when you seal the image.

    For some reason I cannot get the WinPE recovery iso from this forum that has Macrium installed to boot in a generation 2 hyper-v vm so I can capture this image. It tells me no x64 based UEFI boot loader was found (its the x64 iso). It worked when I did this months ago for 1703. I'm trying to do any image for 1709. Anyone have any idea?

    exact error: hyper-v generation 2 no x64 based uefi boot loader was found scsi dvd
    hi,, if you're creating images, do not use Gen2, and use legacy nic. my .02c

    I posted a question a few weeks ago (4th post up from this) that was about the setupcomplete.cmd batch file running too early, but have recently found out that this is not the "real" issue. The real issue is actually the auto-logon count in the unattend.xml file is being ignored. I have the count set to "1", but it seems like Windows keeps logging back into the Administrator profile multiple times (so instead of logging in just one time and being done as I have specified, it logs in multiple times). Every reboot sends me back to the Administrator profile.... Is anyone experiencing this as an issue? I have tried searching around the web and haven't been able to locate a fix for this (or even others experiencing the same exact issue). Let me know if anyone is experiencing this or if there are any suggestions, thanks!

    The OneDrive + CopyProfile bug is easily remedied by setting up a boot-up script for Audit System to taskkill OneDriver before it uses and deletes the RunOnce registry key under "\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run."

    "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" also has this key, which you can "borrow" if you fail to kill the OneDrive task before it uses and deletes the key.

    TASKKILL /F /IM OneDrive.exe >NUL 2>&1
    IF EXIST %SystemRoot%\System32\OneDriveSetup.exe (
    START /WAIT %SystemRoot%\System32\OneDriveSetup.exe /UNINSTALL
    ) ELSE (
    START /WAIT %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\OneDriveSetup.exe /UNINSTALL
    )
    RMDIR /S /Q "%UserProfile%\OneDrive" >NUL 2>&1
    RMDIR /S /Q "%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\OneDrive" >NUL 2>&1
    RMDIR /S /Q "%SystemDrive%\OneDriveTemp" >NUL 2>&1
    RMDIR /S /Q "%ProgramData%\Microsoft OneDrive" >NUL 2>&1

    Prepping the system continues; the OneDrive directory will appear "broken" in Audit System; however, after CopyProfile + Generalizing completes and a new user boots-up, OneDrive installs as it would normally.

    Even if one fails to do any of this, you can simply uninstall OneDrive, remove its child directories and then re-install it.

    I am starting to create a Windows 10 Image. Where I work we have been using Windows 7 but we are starting to get in 7th generation i5s and Windows 7 won't run on them. Which I'm sure you already know this.

    Anyways. On our Windows 7 Image I installed Windows 7 and entered audit mode. After entering audit mode I installed all the drivers and software needed. Then preformed windows updates and configured the profile customized settings. Then I stopped. We would then clone the image to a like model HDD. Then wrap the SysPrep with an unattended file. This worked great. I am sure this isn't the most efficient way, but it worked for us.

    My issue now is that with the Windows 10 Image, I'm planning on doing the same thing but I have an issue with upgrading from one build to another. I says you can't install Windows while in Audit Mode. I have no clue what to do. Do I exit audit mode and re-enter? Or is there a way around this? If we do exit audit mode and re-enter it does it mess anything up? How are people working around this? Any help would be great. Thank you!

    You cannot upgrade Windows in Audit Mode. You have to create a unique deployment image for each new build.

    Is there a better way to do this then I am currently doing? Or is that a pretty good way to image?

    So on the Windows 10 Image, I would have to start from scratch every time a major build was released with a current ISO media or install it after SysPrep is wrapped?

    Any advice on a better way to Image would help. Thanks!

    In your procedure part 3, you tailor the desktop, but many customizations specically will not tailor unless you activate windows.
    how do you do it part 3?

    Also during the process i had to attach my cat5 cable to download the windows adksetup..
    This allowed all the apps to self install (like minecraft.. etc). I didnt see any intructions of removing all the appx applications that microsoft has decided to bless us by updating windows 10 with.
    BTW Your tutorial is very very good
    .. Before I constantly ran into the problem of sysprep failing for version 1709 when removing an appx apps with per-user vs all-user being provisioned.
    I didnt see any part to remove all these anoyances while creating my image for the company. ANY IDEAS??

    Okay i have followed the guide pretty close only changes I am making are a bunch of GPO changes and then sysprep according to the guide. I am going to go back here in a few to see if this is a GPO setting breaking this but wondering if anyone else has run into this ?
