    1. sysprep /generalize /shutdown /oobe

    Windows\Setup\State\State.ini
    Code:
    [State]
    ImageState=IMAGE_STATE_GENERALIZE_RESEAL_TO_OOBE
    
    2. integrate apps

    So I install all the drivers and standard applications in Audit mode, sysprep /generalize /shutdown /oobe, then boot into WinPE, add the appx packages and then capture image?

    Hmm, when I perform a clean install from WinPE and add the appx packages the ImageState is already set to "IMAGE_STATE_GENERALIZE_RESEAL_TO_OOBE".

    I'll have a play, thanks...

    What the? I've just done a clean installed, entered Audit mode, installed the Nvidia 461.09 dch drivers, reboot and now see there is already a Nvidia Control Panel 8.1.959.0.
    Since when have Nvidia included the control panel with DCH drivers???

    First thing to be installed via MS Store right after logon if you have Nvidia drivers installed and an internet connetion.

    I have no idea about that. I just showed you the way I usually do the Apps integration.

    No internet, just installed the DCH drivers, reboot, and the control panel was there!

    Ok, my focus has just been on the Nvidia Control Panel. I've just setup a MSI GL65 10SCXR notebook & pre-installed Nahimic, Realtek Audio Console, Intel Graphics Command Center & Nvidia Control Panel.
    All of them work in Audit Mode. After a sysprep, logging in as an end user I find all of them are still working except for the Nvidia Control Panel.
    Well it's like @tcntad said, when I connected to the internet, the Nvidia Control Panel got installed.

    I just wanted to get it all to work without an internet connection since it works in Audit mode. Oh well I'll leave it as that then...
