Eset Endpoint Security Change Language

In this blog post I describe the steps required to create a Virtual Machine template using Windows 10 from scratch.

Only optimizations of the core OS are described, the impact of installed applications within the guest will also need to be evaluated.

Below are the steps to follow to create an optimized Golden Image for VDI
