Suppress Windows 10 1803 "Choose your Privacy Settings" after setup.exe based upgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to suppress the "Choose your Privacy Settings" after a setup.exe based upgrade? would "/ShowOOBE None" be the way to do that?

  • Hi,

    In answer file, you can add below:

    <ProtectYourPC>3</ProtectYourPC> 

    ProtectYourPC = 3 means that turn off the Express, which can help skip the "Choose your privacy settings" screen.

  • Thanks for the reply. From what I understand Setup.exe /Auto Upgrade /Quiet should suppress OOBE. isn't this screen part of OOBE and therefor shouldn't be showing in the first place?

  • From the blog, if you use /showoobe none switch, then it will skip the OOBE part and components are set to their default settings.

  • I am seeing the same behavior after an in-place upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 using ConfigMgr. After the upgrade the user is prompted with the Privacy Settings OOBE page. I know this is not the expected behavior and I just chalked this one up to a bug in 1803 but if anyone comes up with a solid workaround I would love to hear it.

  • I am also having this issue in Configuration Manager 1802. I can upgrade a machine from Windows 7 to Windows 10 v1709 just fine but if I change our media to 1803 and do an upgrade from Windows 7 I get the OOBE settings on first login of a domain user. I can see there is a UAC prompt behind the OOBE screen if I do an alt-tab but I cannot select it to hit yes. I would like this work just like 1709 so our techs/users don't have this extra confusion added to the upgrade. I found a post on reddit about adding the following registry keys during the upgrade:

    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OOBE" /v "PrivacyConsentStatus" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OOBE" /v "SkipMachineOOBE" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OOBE" /v "ProtectYourPC" /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f

    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OOBE" /v "SkipUserOOBE" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    but I would rather it just work the way it used to.

  • Nice find. I'm going to test adding these right after the upgrade in the task sequence and see how it goes. I'll let you know what happens.

  • I had my customer add the one command to the task sequence in the Post-Upgrade steps and so far we haven't seen the issue again.

    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OOBE" /v "PrivacyConsentStatus" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
