    I'm facing an issue to script the default browser to Chrome. It seems impossible in Windows 10 via a powershell/batch script. Do I have to rely on sysprep for this ? :(

    if use hyper-v vhd or vhdx virtual disks mount windows 10 easly
    if use virtualbox or vmware use this imdisk toolkit. install the program, select vdi or vmdk right click mount drive

    I followed the Audit/Sysprep/Generalize tutorial to a T, and the final result didn't work for me.

    I used the new 1803 iso, ran the installation of Windows 10 Pro, got into audit mode during the very first config screen, restarted as an Admin, installed Office 365, winrar, foobar, vlc, dobe reader and made a few changes to the general config in control panel, restarted again, ran sysprep as per the instructions.

    The system shutdown without issues. I captured the volume to install.wim, using that exceptions file on DISM.

    I grabbed the resulting install.wim and replaced the original on the iso with the new one. I tried to install the new iso on a VM and right after I skipped the screen where it asks for a serial number, an error message appeared: "Windows no pudo mostrar las imágenes disponibles para la instalación", which loosely translates to "Windows couldn't show the available images for the installation".

    If I run the Get-WIMInfo command on dism, the info appears to be fine:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>Dism /Get-WIMInfo /WimFile:c:\wim\install.wim
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.17134.1

    Index : 1
    Name : Windows 10 Pro
    Description : Windows 10 Pro
    Size : 20,263,369,269 bytes
    The operation completed successfully.


    If I try to open the file with 7zip, an error message appears that says something about being unable to open this file as a compressed file.

    I don't know what else to try. Any clues? :confused:

    Had this happen when capturing with dism. Problem is the undefined edition flag. I use imagex or wimlib-imagex to capture ever since.

    To write the missing flag best use imagex:
    Code:
    imagex /flags "Professional" /info "c:\wim\install.wim" 1 "Windows 10 Pro" "Windows 10 Pro" /CHECK
    Then try again.

    Thank you for your help, S1ave77!! Although I ended up following your other tip of capturing the wim with wimlib-imagex and that one worked like a charm! The edition flag now shows the proper edition and I can even open it with 7zip now.

    Hey!

    I'm currently building my windows 7 with unattended installs so I just want to make sure it's right..

    Summarized:
    1. Created the "Scripts" folder inside the Setup folder on the mounted install.wim (%windir% of course)
    2. Created the sources\$OEM$ folder inside the ISO with these subfolders:

    $$\Setup\Scripts\firstlogon.cmd
    $$\System32\OEM\OEMLOGO.bmp
    $1\Install\vc_2005\vcredist_x64.exe [+ all visual C from 2005-2017]

    3.Started writing the firstlogon.cmd which is currently look like this:

    Code:
    @echo off
    title Installing Visual C Packages and stuff
    ::Code: Nowayy [forums.mydigitallife.net]
    ::Credits go further to: MS i guess.. for making simple things complicated
    setlocal ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION
    pushd "%~dp0"
    cd %~dp0
    echo.
    
    echo Visual C++ 2005 ...
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2005\vcredist_x86.exe /Q
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2005\vcredist_x64.exe /Q
    cls
    
    echo Visual C++ 2008 ...
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2008\vcredist_x86.exe /q
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2008\vcredist_x64.exe /q
    cls
    
    echo Visual C++ 2010 ...
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2010\vcredist_x86.exe /q /norestart
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2010\vcredist_x64.exe /q /norestart
    cls
    
    echo Visual C++ 2012 ...
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2012\vcredist_x86.exe /quiet /norestart
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2012\vcredist_x64.exe /quiet /norestart
    cls
    
    echo Visual C++ 2013 ...
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2013\vcredist_x86.exe /quiet /norestart
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2013\vcredist_x64.exe /quiet /norestart
    cls
    
    echo Visual C++ 2015 ...
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2015\vcredist_x86.exe /quiet /norestart
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2015\vcredist_x64.exe /quiet /norestart
    cls
    
    echo Visual C++ 2017 ...
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2017\vcredist_x86.exe /quiet /norestart
    Start /wait %~dp0vc_2017\vcredist_x64.exe /quiet /norestart
    cls
    
    echo Disabling Telemetry ...
    SCHTASKS /Create /F /RU "SYSTEM" /RL HIGHEST /SC ONSTART /TN BlockW10 /TR "cmd /c %windir%\W10-Block.cmd"
    cls
    I don't really get how this %~dp0 part sets up the current location but still using it so.. ahem.. is this gonna work.?
    I mean the install folders and installers are in the $1\Install while the script is in the $$\Setup\Scripts ...
    Or should I just stick with the %SystemRoot% variable?

    OneNote, Solitaire and BingWeather are already installed apps
    you need to modify install.wim and remove them with DISM

    most ContentDeliveryManager values are ignored for Pro/Home
    you need to use LayoutModification.xml to stop other "pending" apps from installing after

    Hello,
    I would like to use the script below via runonce
    But in the state it break the end of oobe
    Code:
    Reg.exe add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects3" /v "Settings" /t REG_BINARY /d "30000000feffffff02000000010000003e00000028000000000000000000000000040000280000006000000001000000" /f
    taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
    timeout 1
    start explorer.exe
    I found a workaround
    Code:
    :WAIT
    timeout 1
    tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq SecurityHealthSystray.exe" 2>NUL | find /I /N "SecurityHealthSystray.exe">NUL
    if %ERRORLEVEL% NEQ 0 goto WAIT
    Reg.exe add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects3" /v "Settings" /t REG_BINARY /d "30000000feffffff02000000010000003e00000028000000000000000000000000040000280000006000000001000000" /f
    taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
    timeout 1
    start explorer.exe
    
    But this solution is not really clean
    Finally, my question:
    How to wait for the end oobe?
    more specifically, how do I know when windows becomes fully functional after startup?

    Per post #2 setupcomplete.cmd and oobe.cmd aren't co-existing for me in my Windows 10 install. I have my activation solution in setupcomplete and other stuff I want do in oobe.cmd because for some reason if I try and add anything else to setupcomplete.cmd it just hangs at "Just a moment...". When I go through the OOBE and get to the desktop it's not activated. If oobe.cmd is present does the system ignore setupcomplete.cmd?

    They can coexist, iirc, oobe.cmd is handled first and setupcomplete.cmd next, but if the oobe.cmd has a bad command or deletion command, it can cause setupcomplete.cmd to not be ran.

    For right now until I get both oobe.cmd and setupcomplete.cmd to be work I only have one line of execution in my oobe.cmd. I don't why it would have a problem with that.

    Code:
    @echo off
    setlocal ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION
    pushd "%~dp0"
    cd %~dp0
    start /wait Ninite\Ninite.exe
    exit
