Tutorials / Windows Unattended / Custom Vista Start Menu

The windows Vista start menu can be customised during an unattended installation by deleting links/shortcuts from the "All Users" user profile. Create a batch file with the relevent deletion commands and call the batch file from a synchronous command during the unattended build (or run each deletion as a separate command).

Example:

del "C:\Users\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Extras and Upgrades\Windows Anytime Upgrade.lnk"
