Reseal (Standard 7 Package Reference)

7/8/2014

Reseal indicates whether the computer runs in audit mode or Windows Out-of-Box Experience (OOBE), also called Windows Welcome, when the computer is next started. For more information about modes, see Image Builder Configuration Passes.

Reseal is a special-case setting:

  • If Reseal is added to either the auditSystem or oobeSystem configuration pass, it is processed before all other settings in that configuration pass. In some cases, Setup ignores all other configuration-pass settings in the configuration pass, and will immediately start the new configuration pass or shutdown the system.
  • If Reseal is added to the auditUser configuration pass, it is processed after all other settings in the configuration pass.

The following table provides scenarios for each combination of configuration pass, mode, and forced-shutdown behavior. When a configuration pass has more than one result, the table lists the results in the order that they take place.
