Ok for past few years I have been using a strange method, NTlite to extract wim from ESD, using NTlite to add drivers missing for my multiple pcs, using winreducer to disable services and also tweak a few things, then wintoolkit to add some post install files. Outside of using multiple softwares the only issue I ever came across bar random broken installs so I had to remake image was when installing it always stuck at something, I think it was updating services or system and that took as much as a hour then it took me into first setup screen. This time it didn't work and instead I got "windows has run into an error, a update may help" I tried backtracking on myself and first not using wintoolkit, then not using winreducer, removing drivers NTlite said I already had etc. I then also tried just doing a NTlite image with just drivers added, that worked. I then decided to try NTlite but with tweaks, and new fault, it quickly gets to the "just a moment" screen then hangs, I have left it overnight even and its still stuck. I must of made 15 images so far with various attempts to test what works and nothing seems to work. I also just tried with Dism++ (I am aware I could use normal Dism but it didn't load on my pc) used it to remove all apps bar windows store and store install service, VC, classicpaint and skype. I also put on a few tweaks like removing quick access, pin to etc. and removing things like hello face and unneeded things. Still broken, wont get further than the "just a moment" screen. What am I doing wrong. ....................................... Ok what I want to do to an image is add drivers, Remove libraries, quick access and folders from my computer so I just have network and drive list. Have classic control panel, sound etc but modern login screen. Remove icons like language bar from taskbar, and as a bonus ones like task view, action centre, cortana and search already hidden. Another bonus to disable things like geolocation, telemetry, game bar/Xbox features and all tracking and non essential services. Remove preinstalled apps and start menu apps and onedrive, bar store service, VCredist, Skype, mspaint. A bonus if I can remove any extras such as hello face etc. I have seen a few registry files/scripts for each but im inexperienced with dism to use them hence using NTlite. What am I doing wrong? Any advice to do it easier?
