    My installation can't get past the OOBE screen.

    Here's the sequence of my OOBE:
    Region/Language/Keyboard/Zone -> Skip Product Key -> Legal Stuff -> Wi-Fi Setup -> Use Express Settings -> Processing Screen -> PC restarts then back to step1

    I tried the following:
    Shift+F10 -> slmgr.vbs /ato (activation successful)
    Ctrl+Shift+F3 -> Audit Mode -> Created Local Account with Administrator privileges

    By the way, I used dism to install the install.wim from the W10 Pro ISO. Before that, I did an offline removal of certain Features and Windows Apps from the wim. I also removed some packages (Hyper-V, IE11, WMP, Edge, Defender) using install_wim_tweak.exe.

    I hope you guys can point out any mistake I could've made while customizing the wim file. Or any tweak to manually get past the OOBE. Thanks!

    go through it again, it sometimes will load that setting screen a couple of times and then it moves on
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    U might try this

    At the first error hit SHIFT F10
    Type -
    Cd..
    Cd..
    Cd c:\windows\system32\oobe
    Msoobe
    This should force the installation to continue.
    If the error reappears click on OK and let it restart the system, once restarted it should carry on with the installation

    OK, I'll try that. There are actually no error messages. It just goes to the processing screen and then restarts when it should've been asking if I own the PC and then to the Microsoft account screen.
