    That is interesting David. It sounds similar to a custom reset image.

    Yes I think the provisioning packages are as near an approximation as you can get to a custom reset. It's not quite the same but has a similar effect.
    And you can create provisioning packages yourself, although it's apparently best to run in Audit Mode while the machine is still new. (Which reminds me I could tweak my Tutorial with a couple of new features in the '1607' version of the ADK tools.)
    The provisioning packages also get copied onto a Recovery Drive (when it works) so a reinstall from a recovery drive will install the software as well as Windows.
