    Windows 10 Deployment - Use custom Reset this PC


    Hello everyone,
    I introduce myself I am new to the forum.
    I have in my possession a custom install.wim of Windows 10 1909 and I would now like to either create a partition to restore this image or either ask Windows to use this image for the option to reset this PC. In any case, I would like to do like the manufacturers of type Acer, HP, ... so, "reset this pc" should work in any case whether it is a complete image in a restoration part or a partial image (like practiced today by builders)

    Could you help me ? Thank you!

    With your Custom Image - you would to use WinRE & Dism to apply the Image...
    As OEM's use the default Reset/Refresh feature with Windows 10 and a Customizations Folder with OEM Customized xml files and a Provisioning Package

    Ok thanks you all :) I would come back to tell the progress of my process

    - - - Updated - - -

    Ok, I looked at your link, it seems like a good alternative but unfortunately I would like to do something more "complex" more "clean" and put the install.wim in a hidden partition or put it in the default location c: / recovery and tell WinRE to reset this PC via THIS image and not by rebuilding the Windows system files as it does by default. I heard that on Windows 10 the "reagentc.exe / setosimage" unfortunately no longer works.

    At the time of Windows 8 pc manufacturers put their images in a restore partition varying from 10 to 20 GB and when we did (restore this pc) it returned to the factory position.

    Currently, manufacturers use the default Windows operating mode, their programs and applications are package in the recovery partition, but Windows restores itself (so Windows remains up to date, even by resetting) while keeping the programs.

    I would like to use one of these two methods so much that the second seems much more complicated to do.

    trying to install win10

    Unfortunately that option is no longer available.


    A workaround could be the exact same thing we have doing in win7 for years:

    copy installation media to a separate partition. Replace sources\install.wim with your custom version.

    Then you can try running setup.exe from that partition to do a repair install. Thta is preferable to a refresh ( now called "keep files" ) because it should keep all your installed programs as well.

    If restore is needed from outside windows, you could just boot up winre/boot.wim or similar and apply the install wim image to the target partition.

    It should be possible to update that custom install.wim by e.g. creating a wim image of current installation and appending it.

    If you like a gui for that kind of thing, dism++ is handy
