    Hi Kari, thanks for the work, i'm new to the forum and I have to do a work for this Monday and i'm in a worry.
    I just want to ask you if it's possible to use the Audit Mode into a newly bought Lenovo notebook to install a couple of piece of softwares and a couple of desktop shortcuts, i watched your tutorials and read some info from you and other users but every time the process is for making a customized Windows installation image to deploy on multiple machines but i just need to customize this unique installation on this unique notebook.
    It's quite clear how to install some software and also how to copy some shortcuts on desktop using the default user, but i really need to re-image a pre-customized Lenovo image? I just need to install two or three softwares and a couple of desktop shortcuts and leaving the final user going through the OOBE first setup, I don't want to go through the OOBE and creating the user, password, the three secret answers to the security questions.
    If i have to use the answerfile, as i read on some user thread where you answered, i was thinking to use this file:
    Code:
    <?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="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <CopyProfile>true</CopyProfile>
    </component>
    </settings>
    </unattend>
    Is this right and enough for the software and shortcuts after i customized in audit mode or am I wrong?
    I also need to force the user to encrypt the hdd with bitlocker after he get onto the desktop for the first time but this will be optional if too hard to apply.
    Thanks in advance for the reply!

    I did all I needed without answer file, using the audit mode and putting everything in the public desktop and installing sw for all users, I also pre-encrypted the sys hdd and no recovery key was asked before or after OOBE.

    Bye!

    Hello,

    is it possible, to integrate/add VS and WDK to an offline image?

    I have created two life builds with Pre build PE SE and PXE.

    I did that based on win 10 1809 enterprise.

    If it is possible at all:
    Do i have to integrate in the original win10 1809 entrprise iso's ?
    Or could i do that in the allready created win 10 PE SE (and PXE) 1809 Enterprise iso's ?

    Many Thanks

    There is any way to change default configuration on the web browsers? I mean, everytime I'm customizing Windows on Audit Mode, every browser changes doesn't apply when I create a new user or go through OOBE. I have to always customize individually every browser and I deploy that image.

    Greets,

    Thanks for extensively detailing each & every aspect And making the things super easy!

    Please consider mentioning in ''Part Four : Customize Windows'' that "Some programs, drivers, updates, etc customizations may need restart to install completely & properly. Go ahead with restart as every time it will automatically boot into Audit mode till it is finalized by sysprep. ''

    Thanks & Regards. ...

    Hello there, i have a problem with a windows installation created with the audit mode which i then want to install unattended.

    I have made a windows installation 10 (20H2) in audit mode, with all my programs and settings. This was done in Hyper-V and i created a snapshot _before_ i ran sysprep the first time.

    I ran sysprep with these parameters:
    C:\windows\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /generalize /shutdown /oobe /unattend:D:\install\copyprofile.xml
    because i wanted to set the copyprofile setting to true. I want that every user i created on the system has the same settings on desktop and (for example) all the same path variables.

    After that i have captured a .wim file from the installation with dism and made a bootable iso with oscdimg. When i use that image in another virtual machine as a bootable media, i can make a "normal" windows installation where i need to go manually through the settings (the winPE and the OOBE part, like typing in the Windows key and so on).

    When i do that i get the result i wanted with the copied profile settings and my desktop with the new users look exactly like i left them on the audit machine before the sysprep.

    The i thought "Why dont just customize the winPE and OOBE part in the autoanattend.xml so that the customized ISO (with "my" install.wim) can install completely unattended...what could go wrong?"

    Well, there i my problem: The installation works unattended but i dont get my customized desktop and/or path variables. It is just a clean windows profile but my installed apps are all there (from my audit machine).

    What did i miss? I thought that i only created a custom . wim file and there are all my programs _and_ my settings to the default profile, which are copied to every new user i might create (unattended or manually).

    My autounattend.xml in the root of my customized windows iso file looks like this (Note: I deleted the Produkt key and the name of the user in this one fyi. :) The windows iso should be used to be installed for MBR and GPD machines, that is why there are only 2 partitions).

    Maybe someone can help me out there. I dont understand why it should be different when i put the information needed manually in the windows installations to the way i put everything in the autounattend.xml where i use the winpe and oobe party. Do i need to put the specialize in _this_ autounattend.xml too (like in the copyprofile.xml which used with sysprep). Or do i need to run sysprep with an xml file where i put the winpe and oobe part in there to to automate it?

    Help is greatly appreciated. :)
