even with minor noodling ltsc2021 feels like an incremental update to 1089, a few extra things but nothing major. kinda like service pack 2 was to xp. uses the same metro theme file with prairie wind bitmap i saved on 1809. only real difference i see is edge with its scheduled tasks and services.

2021 is not that different, if you have used 1809 ltsc you wont have any trouble with 2021. of course there are some changes and people will post stuff that incorporates them.

Reserved storage is enabled on clean install.

will both of these disable it?
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ReserveManager]
"ShippedWithReserves"=dword:00000000

Code:
DISM.exe /Online /Set-ReservedStorageState /State:Disabled

so the dism method is more like a per session setting while the registry option is permanent.

You could say that. The proper way to use reg option will be integrating into the image, so on first install it's already disabled. Applying it post-setup, means Windows has already reserved the space and you will have to run DISM to undo it.

As I like to repeat myself, order of execution does matter.

on a 55gb test partition System Restore is Disabled as default, even on the previous 115gb test. might be a Group Policy.

Notepad Wordpad and Paint are Capabilities that can be disabled. Snipping Tool(from w7) works with Paint disabled.

quote "LTSC 21H2 (build 19044.1288) are genuine build from microsoft
nuhi There are Edge leftovers on Live removals(NTLite_2.3.1.8454_x64) from the above image, a few files here and there and a load of edge things in winsxs/file maps. that is just a test install to tinker around with, get used to, didnt make a full list im afraid. :(

Note for users, 19044.1288 en-us, during OOBE setup gets in a loop and repeats a couple of things, one is when you have no internet. havnt tried adding updates yet, just the bare iso.

here is my Prairie Wind theme file for LTSC 1809 and 2021. make sure to show colours on title bars etc. uses the old XP Prairie Wind Bitmap, you will need to Tile it. You can use it and disable Themes service. Theme file patcher not needed :)
