    Ok, I found the solution:

    in the folder:

    C:\Windows\SystemApps\MicrosoftWindows.Client.CBS_cw5n1h2txyewy

    you edit the file (you must take ownership of that file and give total control permission ex: for administrators):

    AppxManifest.xml

    Remove the section that is related to GetStarted, the whole section:

    <Application Id="WebExperienceHost" ...
    ....
    </Application>


    Then save, restore permission and restore original ownership ("NT Service\TrustedInstaller").

    Unfortunately, the Icon for Get Started will still be in the start menu.

    I don't know how to remove it.

    The only solution to not have this icon was to mount the install.wim from installation (using DISM), and do the procedure described above, then unmount saving change to install.wim.

    This way when you install windows, there is no more Get Started apps or icon.

    Tested this in a VM.
