Windows Unattended Setup - Avoid creating boot entry in NVRAM RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are currently search for an easy method to avoid that the Windows installer (Windows Setup) is creating a "Windows Boot Manager" entry in NVRAM. Instead, the system should boot from UEFI Fallback (EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI). This has already to be done in the Unattended installation.

    The reason for this is that the flash chip/EEPROM only has a specific lifetime and we don't know how often it can be erased until the chip dies. The servers are running in a data center and can be rented by customers.
