    Hello guys,

    My new project is to create customized Windows ISO with drivers and some softwares installed. To accomplish this, I'm trying to install 8.1 on VMware workstation but it sets up everything by itself and takes me directly to the desktop with user account created. There's no welcome screen for me to hit Ctrl+Shiift+F3 and get into audit mode.

    I also tried creating a blank machine to install OS later but I can't find a way to do so.

    I have ISO downloaded from the Microsoft.

    Any help regarding this will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.
