    I believe its this
    Reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DriverSearching" /v SearchOrderConfig /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
    0 = Never install WU drivers
    1 = Always install
    2 = Let me choose

    Which build is it not working on?

    *EDIT: Here's another one if you feel like testing
    Reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Device Metadata" /v PreventDeviceMetadataFromNetwork /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    Reg.exe add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /v "ExcludeWUDriversInQualityUpdate" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    I use Pro v1703, so I don't know if it works on Home.

    Why DISM, are you trying to do this to an offline image?

    You can't do this in OOBE setup.
    Simply don't connect to network during setup!

    Will not it work in this way?

    Dism
    reg load HKLM\DVD_Software "C:\xxxx\xxxx\Windows\System32\config\SOFTWARE"

    Regedit add
    [DVD_Software\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]

    "ExcludeWUDriversInQualityUpdate"=dword:00000001

    The way I'd do it is to mount your install.wim, load its registry hives into your live Windows registry, then change the proper registry settings.
    Unload the hive and unmount the wim.
    On install the registry will be setup the way you want it.

    **EDIT:Yes, that's the idea. You could use MSMG Toolkit to help with the mounting and loading the registry.
