    It probably has to do with the OEM only channel.

    I will see if i can squeeze in a option in that area of the Creator so that when ticked it will tell MRP to ignore any attempt to add the model name.

    If i cant add it there i will find somewhere to sneak it in.

    By default MRP has always inserted the System Model name , i just expanded that area to allow the user to change it as they wished.

    It will be in the next MRP so that you can somehow tell MRP to not insert any Model name. :)

    That's the normal windows frame shown when moving about a explorer window, on Server by default that is the way it is. I know there is a option somewhere in the GUI to move the whole window or how it is called.

    Found it !!

    Find or type 'System Properties' into taskbar search box, select Advanced tab then Performance button.

    Under Performance Options > Visual Effects > tick the box next to : 'Show Windows Contents While Dragging'

    On 20Hx type 'About your PC' in the taskbar Search box , then on the side you will see the 'Advanced System Properties' line under the 'Related settings' banner.

    I still not know the proper term :D:D

    On the other hand, I realized that modifying the VL entry changes the services configuration screen.

    You wanna set a basic generic name and have it changed when being restored via third party on another pc?
    Dont use Acronis but sysprep and capture the install to a Install.wim instead, that would be my best suggestion.

    As it seems to have been expected, that OS/Edition has some internal hard coded design to prevent any such actions.

    is it possible to use only OEM information part of the project without changing any other windows setting.

    If you not wish to use any tweaks, dont put any config.ini file next to decompile.exe and MRP will operate like it used to, just adding OEM branding and for Vista/7 kernels it will attempt to use any SLIC to activate it.

    Using the Creator program and the ini it creates allows the user to tweak the OS before desktop, that is not a requirement for the project to work.

    If you also not want any branding but just the standard OEM data for the Model Name etc then do not add the oem's.7z file either so leaving just the oobe.cmd and Decompile.exe in the scripts folder.

    To basically sum things up how the project operates:

    Decompile.exe + oobe.cmd = No branding, only minimal OEM data added such as any Model Name. Vista/7 Kernel + Server SLIC activation, (if SLIC Table present).

    Decompile + oem's.7z + oobe.cmd = Full OEM branding and OEM Data added also any Vista/7 + Server Kernel activation If DMI/SLIC tables etc present, {as above}.

    Decompile + Oem's.7z + oobe.cmd + MRPConfig.ini (as created by the MRPCreator program and options set within) = Full Branding, OEM Data, SLIC Activation where possible {as above}, plus any User tweaks set via the options within the ini file.

    i tried multiple times with and without MRPConfig.ini still get same results Windows adverts blocked and diagnostic data set to Required with note in red (*Some of these settings are hidden or managed by your organization.)

    I'm sure that is not caused by the project, those 'tweaks' are only done when the MRPConfig.ini has the options set to yes, with no MRPConfig.ini file the decompile/MRP ignores any tweaks. None are performed within MRP unless specified in that ini file. :g:

    Are you using any other scripts, such as setupcomplete.cmd that has anything set to do some tweaks etc inside it, or using any other offline image editor that does some tweaks?

    The block adverts routine is quite complex and the routine will not operate/be run unless specifically set to do so by the MRPConfig.ini , we have checked MRP's use with and without the ini and no tweaks are done when it is not present.

    I not see anything in that unattended XML that could cause those issues.

    Side note:
    Any reg entry/tweak that has a 'policy' type edit will usually trigger the banner 'Some of these settings are hidden or managed by your organization'.
