I've got a nicely configured 10 LTSB but now big updates don't install because of removed components. So I follow the guide to install in place and the first time it failed at settings migration. I'm giving it another go with the easy migration feature re-enabled so we'll see what happens. (failed again)
My issue here is that:
A. This process takes forever and copies many files
B. What will happen to autokms? What will happen to "take ownership". My GPOs, My tweaks. etc
C. Am I really going to be doing this every month?
My 7 installs are YEARS old on personal machines. Seriously, my user folder was created 12/2010
So I have the following options I guess
1. Not use 10. Stick with 7 or gutted 8.1 (updates install there, I think)
2. Install 10 as is and try to manually disable the features I don't want.
3. Run 10 never installing updates and count on eset + firewall.
Why can we not have a list of the removed components or re-installable backups of the packages? Like wimtweak/package exporter solution.
Why can't we break up the cumulative updates and install pieces vs a preset of what was removed, etc?
On this system I'm doing it for giggles to see what can be done (no worry of data loss) but on a primary system the situation appears untenable.
