    Guys don't use methods in Parts One and Three in build 14986 before we've found a solution for an annoying issue: the HoloLens app is misbehaving, causing sysprep to fail when /generalize switch is used. Generalizing works in every other build of Windows 10.

    I am sure a solution exists, it just needs to be found. I've been on it almost a full day and night, it's now 6:13 AM and I have to take a break. In the mean time methods in Parts One and Three can be used in every version and build of Windows from Windows 7 to Windows 10 build 14971.

    Method in Part Two works perfectly even in build 14986.

    Hi,
    @Kari:

    Just a minor detail:

    4.3) Enter command diskpart, press Enter (#1 in screenshot after step 4.4), enter command list volume (#2).

    This lists all volumes on your hard disks. Find the drive letters for your Windows system partition (in recovery console it's not always C!), and for the volume (disk / partition) where you want to write (store) the new customised install.wim file. In my case now it is easy because I have labeled my partitions (tutorial) with clean and understandable names. I want to capture Windows from volume C and create the new install.wim in volume D (#3)

    Exit diskpart with command exit (#4).
    Assuming you wanted to link to the tut that shows how to label partitions, I noticed the hyperlink is missing.

    Also:

    [QUOTE]Steps 4.6 through 4.12 for virtual machine users only:[/QUOTE]

    I think this ought to read: through 4.13.



    Best,

    Frank

    OK, still searching for solution for this irritating, annoying Sysprep issue in build 14986.

    Methods in parts One and Three work perfectly, fail proof in every version of Windows from 7 to 10 build 14971. They do not work making a Windows 10 Build 14986 ISO!

    Ironically, because of the new upgrade system and missing ESD file the first version / build we would really need methods in parts One and Three is build 14986, but this build adds a new app (Holographic Viewer) which makes Sysprep with /generalize switch to fail. Sysprepping without /generalize switch works just perfectly, but as the switch is needed to make a standard ISO, methods in parts One and Three are useless in and only in the build they would really be needed for the first time!

    When running Sysprep command with /generalize switch on any other Windows version and edition since Windows 7 RTM, it works. When doing in W10 build 14986, you'll get this error message:
    Name:  image.png

Size:  8.7 KB

    Checking the logs you'll find several errors, all caused by this:
    Code:
    2016-12-15 14:07:04, Error SYSPRP Package HolographicViewer_1.0.0.0_neutral__cw5n1h2txyewy was installed for a user, but not provisioned for all users. This package will not function properly in the sysprep image.
    I know how to reprovision app packages, how to remove them and so on. I know Sysprep, my first Sysprep related tutorial on our sister site Seven Forums is over 6 years old and all together my Sysprep related tuts on Seven Forums, Eight Forums and here on Ten Forums have had over 5 million views, with thousands of replies from mostly satisfied users.

    Yet, now I am desperately staring a PowerShell window, trying to find correct commands to work around this stupid issue. The new app added to 14986 seems to be impossible to remove or reprovision. See what I mean, in screenshot I am first searching it to get full appx package name, then trying to remove it:
    Click image for larger version.

    It's a no go, error message (red in screenshot) saying this:

    Remove-AppxPackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80073CFA, Removal failed. Please contact your
    software vendor. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80073CFA)
    error 0x80070032: AppX Deployment Remove operation on package HolographicViewer_1.0.0.0_neutral__cw5n1h2txyewy from: C:\Windows\SystemApps\HolographicViewer_cw5n1h2txyewy failed. This app is part of Windows and cannot
    be uninstalled on a per-user basis. An administrator can attempt to remove the app from the computer
    using Turn Windows Features on or off. However, it may not be possible to uninstall the app.
    I've tried all valid & supported as well as all not so kosher ways I know to work around this. Have found nothing yet.

    Note   Note
    Creating a customized ISO per method in Part Two works exactly as told in tutorial.

    Methods in parts One and Three work at the moment only when doing an ISO image of Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or Windows 10 all builds up to 14971. Do not try these methods with Windows 10 build 14986.


    I am working on it!

    What happens if you remove it prior to starting this process?

    My understanding is that once Kari found out what the hangup was, he tried to remove the holographic thingy.

    There's no way to prevent it. Build 14986 adds this app, and as soon as it's added generalizing will become impossible.

    This is of course so serious bug that Microsoft simply has to fix it but at the moment it will not work. I have still several ideas to test for a workaround but as each of them includes an in-place upgrade from earlier build to 14986 which I must perform to be able to test, it takes time.

    Correct.

    The irony in this is that the app causing this issue is an app most of us will never need nor be able to use!

    Indeed. Wonder what else Creator's Update will break before they finally fix it....
