Hi CarlFan-MSFT ,

Setting skipUserOOBE or skipMachineOOBE to 'true' will completely skipping the OOBE screens.

Set value "DIsableVoice" under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OOBE to 1 (DWORD) and Cortana will stop talking. - This disables only the Voice.

I found the below registry key which worked for me, thanks

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Test\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search]
"AllowCortana"=dword:00000000

Hi,
Have you set SkipUserOOBE or skipMachineOOBE to 'true' to check?
According to the official website, I only find how to disable/skip Cortana voice.
Set value "DIsableVoice" under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OOBE to 1 (DWORD) and Cortana will stop talking.
The information below may be helpful.
