Some problems on Windows 10 1903 18362.1 Build Enterprise x64 pt-pt

So, I did a clean Windows 10 1903 18362.1 Build Enterprise x64 pt-pt install (with KB4507453 integrated so it makes it the 18362.239 build) in the host and in a VM using Hyper-V after creating an image with NTLite and I'm having some problems.

1º - After logging in for the first time in a user account in a VM, the right blue network panel isn't blank but I'm prompted by Hyper-V to edit the VM's session settings (VMConnect). After editing them, the panel is blank.

2° - After disabling the search box the taskbar looks weird.

3º - The Advanced Startup feature doesn't show up below the Reset this PC one on a VM but it does in the host.

EDIT: How can I remove Start Menu shortcuts?

Hi,

thanks for grouping these, the effort is appreciated.

1) Just to make sure I'm testing properly, do you mean if the Settings page is Reset after loading this preset before applying changes to the image, it's ok, if those Settings are applied to the image it's just blue?
2) Can you point to me what's weird about the taskbar? Attached enabled/disabled screenshots of full intact Windows.
3) Try running reagentc /enable in elevated command-line, don't know why would that be disabled for you. Maybe UEFI vs BIOS installs, or if Recovery partition is present.
Tested your preset live quickly, and those options stayed there, this is an UEFI VM.

edit 4) Regarding start menu shortcuts. In the next version it properly cleans OneNote, let me know if you see any remaining leftovers. Let me know if you want a pre-release to try, otherwise it's out next week monday or tuesday. No start menu editing yet, but no icon should be stuck then.

1) Well, before editing the VM's session settings (VMConnect) the panel isn't blank (I can't use the VM before editing them) and after editing them (VMConnect) it is.

2) The taskbar's color is different from before. Before disabling the search box, its color didn't change (it may not have to do with the search box being disabled because I changed other NTLite's settings, although just one or two more).

3) I've already deleted the image and the VM but I'll try it. I don't know about UEFI, BIOS or recovery partition. I just used the created image to install Windows 10 (clean install) on a VM created by Hyper-V (like I said before, I don't have this problem on the host). Could you try it on a VM created by Hyper-V instead of testing my preset live? Anyway, even if that works does it mean I'll have to run that every time to have this feature?

4) I don't know what you mean by OneNote since it didn't return in my case after installing the CUs. Do you know a program which can remove Start Menu's icons (like from removed modern apps)?

I think I made a mistake by disabling the Action Center. How can I activate it again? Should I activate the Windows Security Center Service? I don't want to have notifications (on the Action Center and popping out on the right because of this service) and may I have any problem if I disable it? I disabled it and a notification popped out stating it was disabled although I can disable it on Notifications & actions, I think.

EDIT: I used the reagentc /enable command and I still don't have the Advanced Startup feature.

1) What do I click to get to that panel usually? I don't remember such a panel since the Win8 days.

2) Next time set
"Dark mode for apps"
"Dark mode for Windows"
to Default for default color, enabled for Dark, and disabled for Light themes.
I'll make it more clear in the future instead of current values.

3) Installed your preset, recovery options are there, something is different on your side. Make sure to give the VM enough free space (at least 30GB) and delete all partitions when deploying before selecting the unpartitioned space as the target.

4) No.

5) Go by regedit to HKCU\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer, delete DisableNotificationCenter and reboot.

2) Sorry, but could you express yourself better? On NTLite, I have to set "Dark mode for apps" and "Dark mode for Windows" to default? Where can I find Dark and Light themes?

3) I gave way more than 30 GB and when installing Windows 10 on the VM I can't delete the partition where it is installed because the space is already unpartitioned.

EDIT: So, this time I set "Dark mode for apps" and "Dark mode for Windows" to Default and I no longer have the taskbar's color problem. I don't know why after disabling them I have this problem, though. Also, this time I didn't have the VM blue network panel problem.

5) Thanks, but I was talking about disabling it on NTLite and enabling it on NTLite too afterwards, not after installing Windows. Should I activate the Windows Security Center Service? I don't want to have notifications (on the Action Center and popping out on the right because of it and maybe because Windows Security Center Service is disabled) and may I have any problem if I disable Windows Security Center Service?

EDIT: Forget it, I've found the NTLite setting regarding Action Center.

1) As said I don't see it, just using the ISO and your preset

2) Seems you solved

3) Let me know when you figure out the difference, my guess is you're removing a driver that VM needs for power saving/recovery, as you said the same ISO works on a different/real machine so it's not a general problem.
Also focus on UEFI vs BIOS install difference, as stated at the beginning. You can install Windows in both modes, see online what is what.

5) Seems you solved

hello regarding to this question, is there any way to have the dark mode enabled ONLY at the Windows 10 menus (settings, devices, accounts, etc) but disabled in the file explorer? i tried the "Dark mode for apps" and "Dark mode for Windows" but it still shows all in dark (modern apps and file explorer)

thanks

1) I don't know why you don't see it. Anyway, other users complained about this problem. It looks like it wasn't NTLite's fault but 18362.1's since after integrating a CU on it (not the first ones) I stopped having it and now I'm using the 19041.1 and I'm not having it (with or without CUs integrated). I fixed 2) after following your instructions.

3) That's weird since I didn't remove a driver in the Driver's tab. I know but I don't get what does UEFI/BIOS have to do with this problem. I didn't have this problem before and I used the same install method. This is the only problem I still have among these ones.

Also, here you said you already replied to these two points but when did you do it? If you're talking about this reply, I also have the problem in 2004 and I'm not using MSMG ToolKit's DISM to remove things but MSMG ToolKit's ToolKitHelper, which is a different component removal method. And again, you didn't reply me in that post (and in the next one) regarding the fact that in 2017 you said you wanted NTLite to be compatible with any working Windows install, regardless what was done to it prior, but in the last year you said the opposite, so you've changed your mind. I don't know why you closed this thread since I've been always using NTLite's latest versions when testing, I still have some problems (now on 2004) and I think I described them well enough. Anyway, even after using NTLite only I still have the issue so it's not MSMG ToolKit's fault.

How can I remove in NTLite the new Cortana app which shows up in 2004?

EDIT: I also still have OneDrive showing up in the taskbar (this time in 2004) even though I disabled it in NTLite like reported here (when I said that maybe it was ok, I meant that it may be supposed to show up like that since it was just disabled, not removed). That's why I use MSMG ToolKit (along with NTLite) to remove it since I don't have a paid NTLite license (as well as other components which I can't with NTLite's free license).

I just recalled that I still have (this time after installing 2004 in the host and also after installing 2004 in a VM) the Hyper-V local account user password typing problem from time to time (I mentioned it here), i.e., after typing the right password Windows states it isn't the right one and after typing it again some more times or even wrong passwords on purpose. After clicking on "Connect", Hyper-V returns to the login part and after typing the right password again, it works. Maybe this isn't NTLite's fault but Hyper-V's.

I don't know if I still have the issue and currently sfc /scannow is stuck at 100% verification in the host but that may be caused by the HDD which has bad sectors (I used MSMG ToolKit and NTLite in this host install). In a VM after using MSMG ToolKit and NTLite, sfc /scannow doesn't find corrupt files.
