Feature Request: do not enable previously disabled network adapters during in-place upgrades


Currently any in-place upgrade will automatically enable any - deliberately - disabled network adapters. This will causes unwanted side-effects.

Windows Setup should recognize the state and migrate this, as it does with NIC settings / IP settings, too.

- multiple connections

- multiple IP / ambiguous DNS registration

- misrouting


Requested this several times in Windows Insider. I hope you understand the motivation behind this.
