    I have been using this little app but only to unhide all the packages.

    I have
    C:\DISM
    C:\DISM\install.wim
    C:|DISM\mount

    install.wim files goes inside the "install.wim" folder

    the install_wim_tweaker.exe goes into the C:\DISM folder

    Mount the install.wim image

    the I use this code to unhide the packages

    Then this .cmd to remove Cortana
    Remove defender

    I have not moved onto the telemetry stuff yet, but there are codes on the forums.

    I personally did not just copy the package names, I made my own lists but that's just me..

    Hope this helps..

    Right..

    I am guessing you are new to install.wim files.

    Lets start with your chosen .iso image.
    extracting the files leads to a folder structure including a folder called "sources" This is where the install.wim files lives.

    At the root of my "C" drive I made the above folder structure since I started messing with Win 7 images and I have kept it like that and it works well for me. Others have different DIR's.
    You can make your own, what ever you feel comfortable with.

    the extracted install.wim goes into the C:\DISM\install.wim

    the tweaker.exe goes into C:\DISM

    I have taken a quick snap to show..gimme a mo

    should i create directory c:/dism as i dont have it only the ones i already showed

    also when i copy wim from iso file and place it on C: and after i delete defender using tweaker will it delete it from my os or from copied wim folder ?

    Adding one more bit of info..

    I have exported the Pro index from my original image.

    This makes pro Index:1.

    original Pro is Index:1 and home is Index:2

    this could be important if your chosen OS is Home and Not Pro

    That's what I did..

    Open up C and create your DIR\Folder structure...

    DO YOU HAVE THE COMMANDS TO

    MOUNT\UNMOUNT

    ????

    I MADE

    not C:\dism

    these little differences makes errors...

    In that case you would have to change all the codes to Index:2

    A little app called GImageX could be useful to you


    Listen...Its nearly time for me to shoot of to work...:(
