how do I change the default wallpaper, windows 10 iso
After installing Windows I want to see a new wallpaper
I needs some kind of script or manifest to go along to get imported, you cannot just add a picture there alone
Is the method correct?

\$OEM$\$$\setup\scripts\oobe.cmd
\$OEM$\$$\setup\scripts\unattend.xml
\$OEM$\$$\web\wallpaper\
In the unattend.xml, and oobe.cmd
What text do I write inside a file

I searched for explanations on the net, but
I didn't understand them
can you help me

You can change it in registry

SetWallpaper.reg
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"WallPaper"="C:\\Windows\\web\\wallpaper\\MyPicture.png"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"Wallpaper"="C:\\Windows\\web\\wallpaper\\MyPicture.jpg"
"WallpaperStyle"="0"

; 0 = Center
; 1 = Tile
; 2 = Stretch
; 3 = Fit
; 4 = Fill
; 5 = Span

SetTheme.reg
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes]
"InstallVisualStyle"="%ResourceDir%\\themes\\Aero 7\\Aero 7.msstyles"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ThemeManager]
"DllName"="%ResourceDir%\\themes\\Aero 7\\Aero 7.msstyles"

1) Using registry
Place your wallpaper into mounted image
1624267423022.png

And integrate this Registry in NTLite

SetWallpaper.reg
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; BMP, JPG, JPEG, PNG
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"Wallpaper"="C:\\Windows\\web\\wallpaper\\MyPicture.jpg"
"WallpaperStyle"="0"

; 0 = Center
; 1 = Tile
; 2 = Stretch
; 3 = Fit
; 4 = Fill
; 5 = Span

Registry.PNG

2) Replace img0.jpg
1624267909370.png
1624268234269.png

Both methods have same result but using registry method you can use any supported picture format

After setup you have changed default wallpaper

How to get this path :
C:/users/******/web/wallpaper/windows
I don't know how to use NTLite.
Can you put a link explaining with a video?
I will be very grateful to you

==========
Is this method correct?
Delete the image from the path
C:\Windows\Web\Wallpaper\Windows\img0.j
And
Then add the pictures to:
sources\$OEM$\$$\Web\Wallpaper\picture.jpg

I have perfected another method especially with Win 10 1909>.

INTRODUCTION: I work with the image folder (and not directly with the ISO) in which I extracted all the ISO files.

1) WITH NTLITE CLOSED: go - inside the image folder - to the \ sources \ folder
2) open the install.wim file with 7Zip
3) scroll to \ sources \ install.wim \ Windows \ Web \ Wallpaper \ Windows \ folder
4) in this folder copy your wallpaper (in the example "img22.jpg")
5) close 7Zip NOW IN YOUR INSTALL.WIM - and then in your image, at the end of all your adjustments, and then in your installation, in the default wallpaper folder you will natively find not only img0.jpg - Windows default background - but also img22 .jpg.

At this point, inserting the .reg file in NTLITE as said by George King, you can set the background of the example "img22.jpg" by default (also for each new user).

I still have to "find out" where to set, in NTLITE, the new default wallpaper and for all (even the following new ones) users without the reg file.
