    This has been already answered many times that for v1809 component removal you need the base image 10.0.17763.1

    Do use the 10.0.17763.1 image to remove the components and then integrate the updates.

    I'm new to MSMG or modifying windows in general and I'm trying to understand a few things.

    When attempting to integrate windows drivers it is asking me a few options:
    1. Setup Boot Image
    2. Installation Image
    3. Recovery Image
    My brain wants to say installation image, but I'm not sure. And am I looking for INF files for the drivers?

    Lastly, how do I create an App List for removing specific applications?

    Edit: Just figured out what driver files you need and how to retrieve them. Also I didn't thank in advance. So thanks in advance! :)

    Welcome back and thnaks for the reaction @MSMG

    8.8 removal capabilities are awesome. From all Metro Appx to Windows Components to custom packages. Please make sure you add all modes of removal from 8.8 to the newer version so that we can remove as much as possible.

    Consider this a humble request.

    Thanks.

    yeah and in windows 7 dism 81 is used and that's different from dism 10 which is used in windows 10
    so i don't know if it gives the same results or not !!
    it's just my current OS is windows 7 and in order to play with win10 iso's I use VM with windows 10 so it's very slow

    hi @abbodi1406 i used this script on an offline image and when installing it system apps don't get registered but are still there in the windows\systemapps folder. If i manually delete them, sfc /verifynow triggers integrity errors.
    do you know if there's a safe way of deleting them, so i can save some disk space?
    thanks

    @MSMG

    Thank you for taking my request for combining the two different versions Just wanted to make sure to get the feature to be able to remove the windows components using the Package list as we did in 8.8 "Remove Windows components using package list" where there was an empty "RemovePkgsList" in Packs folder. It was simple and effective. Please include this feature in the updated version.

    Remove Components using Package list is present in the latest version for all OS and the list file is present in <Bin\Lists> folder.

    I'm just temporarily adding the removal feature present in the v8.8 for W7-W10 RS4 to the new version until I do prepare the manual component removal method for W7-W10 RS4.

    Okay thanks for the extended support. I'll wait for the final version. Just one more thing. When removing some packages like Camera, Defender, Store etc I'm getting the error "The volume for this package has been altered outside so the opened file is not valid anymore"

    Here's the thread with full details:

    Please if you can.

    I deleted everything except the store and there was nothing in the start menu. Maybe you did something wrong. And with the default browser, there are no problems.

    @ MSMG yes i know i didnt tag you correctly but its annoying to get quoted and tagged at the sametime.
    so you remember me having issues installing nvidia drivers.when it was failing installing and getting a BSOD i added this apps
    theres still an issue the installation wont end in BSOD but will not finish the installation. a force reboot fixed it.
    any toughts what could cause that in the list below.

    ToolKitHelper:GameExplorer

    ToolKitHelper:AssignedAccess

    ToolKitHelper:EaseOfAccessThemes

    ToolKitHelper:ContentDeliveryManager

    ToolKitHelper:LockApp

    ToolKitHelper:SecureAssessmentBrowser

    ToolKitHelper:parentalControls

    ToolKitHelper:SmartScreen

    ToolKitHelper:SolitaireCollection


    if i add it to list to package remove installs but wont finish but no BSOD.
    thanks
