NTLite closes itself when using the Remove Reinstalls feature and doesn't finish the task.

I used a 19041.1 Enterprise x64 pt-pt image.

19041.1 is Insider Preview. https://betawiki.net/wiki/Windows_10_May_2020_Update

If you're reporting the same problem on 194041.208 (RTM), that's worth investigating. NTLite can be used on any release, but preview builds don't have the same importance as fixing RTM bugs. Move to the released 20H1 image, and try again.

I wasn't having this problem before and when I say that I used a 19041.1 image I meant that I used it but with the penultimate CU integrated by NTLite, installed the latest CU via WU and I had this problem.

After Windows updates and restart there could still be some pending tasks - try restart once one and see if it works.
I have sometimes seen DISK CLEANUP start while NTLITE is running on a liveimage and unable to complete its operations.
A restart tends to solve the problem.

When nuhi returns (he's been quiet for a week), *.dmp files under AppData\Local\CrashDumps will be useful.

Here they are.

Didn't work. Disk Cleanup sometimes shows up when using Remove Reinstalls but I think it's able to finish its operations.

Not that i be an expert in debugging .dmp files. But ntdll.dll seems to be the culprit among others missing. Maybe related to Kernel removal 32-bit? Not all 32-bit removaloption from NTLITE can be removed even you use Windows 64 bit. For example NTLITE or Windows Update can't work without ServicingStack 32-bit from i experienced. About your .dmp you can analyse from WinDbg loading .dmp files. It find a lot of errors of missing dll's - which seems related to 32-bits removals.
I've tried a lot of try and fails - and these 32-bit seems save to remove:

Which ones should I keep?

Most of them will be protected with Compatibility option Recommended and/ or Office - except Kerberos client 32-bit and Servicing Stack 32-bit depending on your needs.
Or you can edit your present preset with Notepad in comparison to the list provided.

Same Problem here. Pro 19044.1319
Just tried and everything went fine.
Updated from Pro 19044.1288 with both SSU-19041.1310-x64 + Windows10.0-KB5006738-x64 in NTLITE.
Restart and do RemoveReinstalls with no error (NTLITE ask for restart as usual).
Completed without errors.
The KB's tested is from uupdump here
You're welcome post your preset

It still happens with the latest NTLite version and the current penultimate CU.
