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:
Checking the logs you'll find several errors, all caused by this:
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.
2016-12-15 14:07:04, Error SYSPRP Package HolographicViewer_22.214.171.124_neutral__cw5n1h2txyewy was installed for a user, but not provisioned for all users. This package will not function properly in the sysprep image.
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:
It's a no go, error message (red in screenshot) saying this:
I've tried all valid & supported as well as all not so kosher ways I know to work around this. Have found nothing yet.

using Turn Windows Features on or off. However, it may not be possible to uninstall the app.
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!
