  1. Currently our gold image is pretty basic - Windows 10 with updates, Office 2016, Acrobat Reader DC, and Google Chrome. I'm considering removing the apps on my next image and making it strictly Windows 10 with updates, and handling the application installs post-imaging with Application Packs and the SmartDeploy Client. Plus then I'll have the client on the workstations to use later on. What are you including in your gold images? Lots of apps, no apps, something in-between? Or am I (as is usually the case) overthinking this? Looking forward to your feedback. Thanks!
  2. I'm wondering how much time everyone spends attempting to debloat Windows 10. I've got a PowerShell script I use to remove a lot of the bloat but I'm beginning to wonder if it's worth the effort. The last couple of Windows 10 updates (I'm looking at you, 1909) seem to get a little unstable if you get too aggressive in cleaning out the bloat. Like I said, just wondering. If anyone has any thoughts to share I'm interested in hearing them. Thanks!
  3. Glenn - Thanks for the explanation. Makes sense, I won't worry about the setting any more. Tom
  4. I just created new answer files for Windows 7 and Windows 10. I compared them with the older ones I had been using and noticed the ENABLE_ADMINISTRATOR_ACCOUNT setting was 0 in the new files. Thinking I'd missed something I recreated the files making sure to check in the Advanced Options, but the option to enable the administrator account was missing. The version_debug setting in the new file is 2.0.3020.9142, and the old one is 2.0.3010.8834. Has anyone else had the same experience? Tom
