When you deploy Windows 8.1 on computers which have a Wifi adapter, there is a step in the Setup Wizard to choose the Wifi network, even if ethernet card is active.
This step can block a SCCM task sequence or a MDT deployment because the Wizard asks for an action.
Fortunately, this step can be bypass/disabled by using an unattend.xml file.
When you deploy a new Windows 8/ 8.1 operating system, you have a lot of Modern UI Application in your profile. But, for an enterprise, these Apps can be annoying: almost all of them are for personnal use.

- Health & Fitness
Hopefully, you can remove / uninstall modern ui Apps by using a Powershell command line.
Microsoft provides two type of Powershell Cmdlet, depend of if you want to remove Apps on a User Profile, or on a System:
- Get-AppxPackage, retrieves all Modern UI Apps for a user profile.
