Hi.

Coming back to my initial idea of building a working daily driver preset using the latest released Winreducer version 1.9.12.0. I know this isn't a super original thing and everybody can create a preset in no time but just for fun I will create a list here and state the changes that I made over the various builds. Removing the most components that everybody removes anyway.

My goal is to create a few final presets that I will use personally and make them available in this thread and keep them updated so that everybody can grab them and import them into Winreducer itself.

Remember it is the intention that these become very basic presets that can be used with first time users of Winreducer that just want to have a basic preset.

The builds will be based upon Windows 10, Version 1709 - Red Stone 3 [Sep 2017] (build 16299.15) English x64.

Currently importing the Windows 10 Home (x64) (en-US) edition. Maybe I will change to the Single Language Editon. Do not know if that makes a difference. Just to be safe I am using the plain Home edition for now.

Back again after all this time and a few Winreducer versions further coming to the v2.0.0.0. build. I decided to have another go at this. Had some problems with Windows 10 Home on my pc with the NVidia driver not installing on a fresh Windows 10 install. So I am using Windows 10 Pro this time as a base.

When Winreducer v2.0.0.0 was released I decided to remove some components and try a new install of Windows but Windows Update did a Roll-Back again. So this problem still persists that one or more components break Windows Update.

In the past only removing drivers broke Windows Update. Whatever I tried it did not work. To my surprise with the latest version and some simple components removed Windows Update worked.

I tried a basic reduced Windows setup again with the following removed starting at build number one.

At the moment the following components can not be removed:

- Mixed Reality Viewer
- Mobile Plans
- Video Editor (Maybe a part of Photo Viewer?)
(Update: Video Editor not present before update. Only after.)

Not removed but not available in start menu.
- Games Explorer

Currently tinkering with Unattended setup. To set the Page File size and skip the Cortana, Express settings, etcetera in setup. Can not see a way to set skips without configuring an account. If a account is not selected an 'Other User' is set at startup. This account has no valid password so can not be configured.

Trying to set a temporary account that can be changed when Windows is installed. First trying an Admin account. After installation an personal user account can be created in Windows 10 itself. Not forgetting to change the default Admin account password after install because it is only set to login into Windows.

It seems that creating an admin account is a fine work around. Not a problem to change the password afterwards. Keeping the admin account is fine for a single user but creating more accounts is perfectly doable.

Still doing the final Windows Update check because Cortana is removed. This is or was a critical component that broke Windows Update with previous Windows 10 installations. This gave a blank version update. An install error in Windows Update itself. Or a roll back of the Windows Updates. I never got it working in previous Windows builds since TH2. Hopefully it will work or will reset to version 0.8 and try a different approach.

It was just for fun but if there are some who like to give me some hints or tips for the next build. There are probably still some little tweaks here and there. Please leave a comment if you had a look.

Thank you.
