    After a few months of installs on different pc's

    Here's how to get rid of it on a clean 1903 install atleast

    Remove Ethernet/Wifi
    In my case i secure erase the ssd with a boot usb stick with parted magic first
    Setup a fresh 1903 install from usb
    Dont give it any internet connection at all
    once the install is finished and you are in windows
    run the registry key to disable provisioning
    reboot
    remove any bloat you desire gone / add your fav tweaks
    on first connection to windows update after a reboot
    the provisioning will be gone

    there is nothing do be done by the user
    it seem to be done on first connection to the internet after an os update
    hence the no connection is vital on setup of a fresh install otherwise you would have to wait
    for the 1903 - 1909 update

    Upgrades don't get the setting, only clean installs. running the regkey in setupcomplete.cmd during OS install (clean install) should disable it.

    Or install a clean install with the last ssu/cu left out and run the regkey and install the latest ssu/cu and it will be disabled too.
