Windows optional features error after image capture

Recommended Posts

Hi 

After deploying W10 1803 version the turn windows features on or off is broken on all desktops. Just returns a blank window.

This feature works fine on the master image running on VMware workstation.

Are there any  known errors or has anyone else had this?

Parts of Windows breaking following sysprep is the sort of thing we've seen when a Reference VM has had in-place upgrades done, especially if it's gone through more than one. Might that be the case here? If you, you'll want to install Windows directly from the v1803 ISO.

This sort of thing can be very difficult to troubleshoot, and it's often less work to build a new VM.

It seems that every release of a creators comes with hew bumps in sysprep, depending on what was installed or done on the Windows installation. In-place upgrades is the most common cause, but often anti-virus or other security software can cause problems too. Also, you don't want to bother with uninstalling any of the Start Menu apps, as it can cause problems in sysprep given the way that Windows handles re-provisioning them. Instead, you can customize the start menu to hide them.
