    Server manager is a GUI thing

    Sconfig is a console tool

    Azure HCI is a no GUI SKU

    If in a Azure HCI thread, someone ask about sconfig I assume we are talking of sconfig, NOT the server manager.

    So why are we talking about the Server Manager here?:confused:

    Sorry, but I'm the one who's confused.:confused:

    My initial question is about SConfig of Azure HCI, which I still haven't been able to solve how to block the execution at the beginning.

    Actually, server manager refers to other server editions

    What about following my instructions?

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\AlternateShells\AvailableShells

    Like I said delete those keys or change them to your liking

    I tried these:

    reg add "HKLM\SOFTHIVE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v "AutoRestartShell" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTHIVE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\AlternateShells\AvailableShells" /f

    But it did not work. At the point of opening SConfig it doesn't open, but is frozen.

    I'll try again just removing the key you indicated.

    EDITED

    I used this reg now:
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTHIVE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\AlternateShells\AvailableShells" /f
    ::reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\AlternateShells\AvailableShells" /f /v "30000" /t REG_SZ /d "cmd.exe /c \"cd /d \"%%USERPROFILE%%\" & start cmd.exe /k runonce.exe /AlternateShellStartup\""
    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\AlternateShells\AvailableShells" /f /v "40000" /t REG_SZ /d "servercoreshell.exe"
    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\AlternateShells\AvailableShells" /f /v "60000" /t REG_SZ /d "explorer.exe"


    And it doesn't work the same way... It freezes on a black screen.

    Why you don't just launch regedit with nsudo instead of using criptic shell commands that make harder to understand what's going on?

    Use the command line where makes sense (say boring a long string of edits), but if you have a single key to change just launch regedit and edit it.


    Speaking of doing things visually

    This is how a standard windows looks like, just do the same

    I am applying the OFFLINE registers in install.wim.

    That's why I use the script.

    But I'll let it go... It's too complicated.

    I appreciate your help!

    You're welcome

    BTW all the tre ways (reg.exe regedit.exe and importing a .reg file using ) works equally well both online and offline.

    How do you get Azure Stack HCI to update/upgrade from 22H2 (20349.x) to 23H2 (25398.x)? I grabbed the ISO from uup.rg-adguard.net and extracted it to a folder on my Azure Stack HCI 22H2 (20349.x) installation, but upon running the setup.exe it only claims "Setup couldn't start properly. Please reboot your PC and try running Windows 11 setup again.". The splash image shows "Azure Stack HCI", but this is the error I get a few seconds later. Tried to re-download, re-extract etc. But still the same. I noticed how Windows Update allowed me to join the Release Preview channel, but 23H2 (25398.x) is not showing through Windows Update.

    Tested the ISO on a Hyper-V VM and Azure Stack HCI 23H2 (25398.x) install just fine when doing a clean install on a VM.

    I ended up exporting my VM's to an external SSD, then re-installed using Azure Stack HCI 23H2 (25398.x) and imported the VM's afterwards.
