    Hi Thanks for the reply. I know that drivers normally should go into the drivers section.
    But being that I have this big drivers.wim file, should I found a way to unpack it?

    A tool to build the remove-features and remove-apps lists would be useful I think.

    Sorry, You can't. Eagerly looking towards future!

    P.S. 9.6 has the added support, etc.changes. For eg. 9.6 is the stable version that can remove components from 1909 version.

    He is talking about latest ''O&O ShutUp 10'' Utility!

    Thanks. ...

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what not to remove in LTSC 2019 (1809) to avoid errors? Is there a list floating around here of adverse effects? Thanks

    1903 and 1909 are both the same OS with only cosmetic differences in their build number, v1909 is not a feature upgrade like v1903, v1809, v1903 etc.

    The Changelog for only adds support for people who wish to use the component removal with the latest CU for v1909.

    Even If I add support for v2004 still the removed components will be restored due to the way the MS's change in the CU structure.

    Regular components like IE, WMP, System Restore and System Apps like Edge, Cortana, Defender are restored but the Windows Apps like Calculator, Paint3D, Photos aren't restored.

    For live system, save the contents to a file named tweaks.reg and import the reg file using a NSudo command prompt with the below command

    reg import tweaks.reg

    For Offline image, some tweaks related to Biometric may break the OOBE.

    Disable features, Remove Apps or Components using List is already implemented in the Toolkit, do check in [4] Remove and [5] Customize menus.

    You need to modify the files DisableFeaturesList.txt, EnableFeaturesList, RemoveAppsList in <Bin\Lists> folder by adding the required features, apps to be disabled, enabled or removed using the DISM method.

    You need to modify the file RemovePkgsList.txt in <Bin\Lists> folder by adding the required package entries to be removed using the DISM method.

    You need to modify the file RemovePkgsList.txt in <Bin\Lists> folder by adding the required apps or components entries to be removed using the ToolkitHelper method.

    PS: Don't use all the above methods for removing Apps and Components, just use one method.

    You can check in the Remove Apps and Remove Components to know which components are dependent/required for what components.

    Known/Reported issues :

    - Internet Explorer may be needed for many legacy software's which depend on IE sub-components
    - Removing Internet Explorer is breaking Photoshop CC Web Installer, DirectX 9.0c Web Installer (Confirmed)
    - Removing Maps App is breaking Photos App Info section (Reported)
    - Adding Microsoft Games is breaking Instagram UWP App(Confirmed)

    In the unattended file remove the Edition entries/tags to allow the setup to display the list of editions present in the image.

    Please, share step by step order (procedures). The removing was done by using PKGSLIST.TXT or different way? Very interesting all things. Thanks in advance.
