    Never thought about the switches that can be set in kms_vl_all to activate only office.

    Hmm looks like 'Aorus' brand has got some elements incorrect :g:, i'm sure it was all fully tested ages ago...

    Just took a look into the oem's.7z and the 'Aorus' brand folder and contents are present, not sure why the theme was not set, will investigate over the weekend.

    Added a new Win 8.x option that hopefully will disable OneDrive from running all the time.

    As OneDrive on w8.x is more integrated into the OS, it is therefor a lot harder to remove cleanly during OOBE and is not actually recommended as certain other factors in the OS that would be linked to OneDrive in some way will fail such as some Office save dialogs etc.

    Have managed to clear it from the Explorer navigation pane{s} and stopped it from always 'running in background' and when Windows starts.

    The link is still showing in the Start menu and it will take you to the PC settings that OneDrive is on. If you are not logged into a m$ account it should stay out the way.

    Not sure if the link to OneDrive will be present on any save dialog windows but as this option is experimental it may not always be disabled, however it does appear to prevent it from running.

    Will work on it more when time permits and see if i can also remove/hide it from the Start menu and PC Settings.

    When i did a search for the onedrive's exe on the system drive i had no results, only the 'links' in the start menu.

    This option is totally separate from the Windows 10 option which removes OneDrive fully.

    Also this new option will be ignored on any installed OS if it is not Windows 8.x to prevent any possible odd effects.

    :)

    On my test as it was not connected to net i got msg saying device not connected or words to that effect.

    Onedrive did not auto start efter several reboots.

    I think it called filemanager.exe on 8.x will see about firewall blocking it so it cant try to connect. I have set policies to prevent syncing etc.

    A work still in progress :D

    Have moved the new w8.x (Disable Onedrive) option to the 'Advanced' section of the Creator's 'Win8.x/10 tab' , also now when it has been selected/ticked a message box will appear informing that it may not be easy to revert later.

    I will not be adding a revert script, so please make sure you really wish to disable it via the MRP option.

    Odd , doubt it as my test installs all activated when i connected to net later on. :g:

    Toredo is a ip tunneling thing , it would affect xbox live chat.

    Nothing about hwid or online activation being affected mentioned anywhere.

    I did a clean non MRP install with the same ISO and it was activated by HWID, now running the MRP install with toredo unchecked:)

    EDIT:
    Now the hwid is picked up, re-running with the toredo option checked:)
