I did read, appearently you did the first thing wrong. Even if it should work.

Is there a program to customize only the "boot wim" of Windows 10?
DISM (or the Winpe(se) projects).
The different PE projects seem to have their ups and downs from year to year. Currently, the best project seems to be ChrisR's "Win10XPE". It's simpler and quicker to build than its predecessor (the famous Win10PESE that Enthousiast was referring to), but PESE still works fine as well.
But like I said before, building your own PE still seems to be for the "happy few", it never seems to take off as an MDL hobby
I forgot to ask: What exactly do you want to customize in it?
If you only want to do some minor adjustment (for example: change PE shell, add some tools), you don't need DISM (saves the time-consuming dism mount/ unmount process), but instead you can run WimLib, using the super fast "wim inject" method.
Add a photo or a name at startup. I'm looking at PEBakery, but I did not understand how to recognize or call the "boot wim" in it.
I plan to create a custom Windows 10 LTSC ISO image that automatically does at least the following:
Set a custom Computer Name and Workgroup.
Create an additional Administrator account.
Disable Microsoft Accounts.
Install Mozilla Firefox (and set it as the default).
Disable Internet Explorer (but not totally remove it) in case it occasionally becomes useful.
Disable certain services, such as the default Windows Update service (in favour of Portable Update or similar program that allows me to pick and choose updates).
Install custom Firewall and Group Policy rules.
Install custom Registry keys, particularly in relation to tweaks that cannot be accomplished via Group Policy.
What is the best way to do all this?
Apologies for being new to custom Windows 10 images. I remember building an XP image a long time ago, but I think the procedure has changed a lot since then.
I believe NLITE has those options but i could be wrong. I havent used that for a while. At least a few of those options. you will have to extract entire install.wim from iso and rebuild iso.
Audit Mode is way to go. Without sysprepping in Audit mode most of your goals are possible to achieve using unattend.xml, setupcomplete.cmd with extra reg tweaks. (except installing Firefox). If you wish i can share my files as example. (Audit mode)
Hi there, I am starting to get used to NTlite, but I don't think it hurts to ask if changing some of the settings (Configure > NTLite) will be saved as a custom group policy setting?
If so then that would be a time saver for me.
The latest insider winpe, 18290, no longer is able to boot it appears. Perhaps they forgot to change the timebomb in it?
Edit: Confirmed, changed the date to a week prior, and it boots fine.
I installed the current version of Microsoft Windows 10 Pro (v1809 updated to build 17763.134) in a virtual machine with an autounattend.xml script booting into Audit Mode after first reboot to customize the image!
I then installed all the updates for Windows and Modern Apps in Audit Mode and I changed a few settings (I didn't pin/unpin any Apps to the Start Menu as I would like to preserve the Default Layout)! I used an unattend.xml during SysPrep which copies my customized settings to the Default user account (CopyProfile)! After capture, I booted into the customised image and completed OOBE and I found that the new user account has my customized settings, but some of the apps pinned to the Start Menu by default wasn't pinned anymore or was displaying a download button which opens the Tips app with the following message: "What's going on with my Apps? If apps on the Start menu don’t open while you’re setting up your PC or they display the download icon, sit tight. Most likely, the app is being installed or updated and it will be available soon"!
How can I preserve the default start menu layout during he customisation process? Keep in mind that I am using the CopyProfile option with SysPrep!
Please, I would just like the simplest solution to preserve the Windows Default Start Menu Layout during customization (Audit Mode) and SysPrep!
