Not sure what you are attempting to get at.

Well...most of any "customizing" or "configuring" Windows itself...is already done by the time it loads.

Windows is an O/S where the user is not required to do a lot, which makes for its appeal to users like me, as compared to earlier O/Ses (like DOS) or some of the various linux distros now available.

It's pretty much...insert disk, follow instructions...and modify settings to suit your own taste or...don't modify settings, which is what most users seem to prefer.
