hello, help me solve a problem with windows 11 pro.

i did it exactly according to the microsoft documentation.

in this link:

I created the folder in c:\recovery\OEM

and inside the OEM folder I put all the necessary files which are:







I used the following parameters to call the CommonCustomizations.cmd file

file inside ResetConfig.xml

Phase="BasicReset_AfterImageApply and


in short: all files worked except the


taskbarlayoutModification.xml doesn't work.

first when restoring windows i noticed that the folder c:\windows\OEM

folder was not created and therefore TaskbarLayoutModification.xml

was not placed inside so inside

CommonCustomizations.cmd before copying the Taskbar to OEM

I added the command md %TARGETOS%\OEM

and this time in the factory restore the OEM folder was created and the taskbar sent to windows\OEM\TaskbarLayoutModification.xml

but it doesn't work, only Unattend.xml, LayoutModification.json work, please help me, what do I do to make my TaskbarLayoutModification.xml work?

    I solved my problem by myself, I created a policy in gpedit, start layout pointed to OEM, where the start layout is and I captured the configuration with scanstate and it worked, now in the restore the modified taskbar appears.
