you can clean up bloatware AFTER the system is set up and running.
There are some programs like decrapifier http://www.pcdecrapifier.com/
but i always prefer to do the job myself manually.
İ would recommend that you take an image of the entire system before you proceed with the cleanup
just in case you delete something that later on you wish you hadn't.
Also creating a system restore point will be good.

When you have the image of the OS drive, create a recovery disk.
Revo has 4 options for removal, I only use the third.
When installing programs, where possible select manual install, then select only the parts you want. When installed, look carefully through the program for, settings, options, the help tab. I want as much control as possible how the system runs so, do I want a program to start with window? Office? No. check for updates at start? Office? no, virus scanner? yes. You can do similar for windows components.
I do not use Registry cleaners, programs that promise to make the system run faster or optimisers, those type of programs often do more harm than good.
When you have everything set as you want, do another system image.
