    The problem you are experiencing with System Restore is the fact that the presence of the MiniNT key makes Windows thinks it is running in PE mode. It also causes issues with the system log and build upgrade. (I had fun hours debugging this problem also)

    See here: Windows 10 Installation Error 80070032 - Microsoft Community

    It might be a good idea to add a warning to the tutorial to disable this key once you're done formatting.
    Good idea. Added to warning at the top of the tutorial.

    In Windows 10 I format with this in the PE environment (custom WinRE with MiniXP as the OS). Indeed, adding that line will make Windows think it's in PE mode when it's not; thus, critical features will be unavailable.

    I could create a PE.iso strictly for ReFS formatting that would work via command-line using simple menu selection and post it in a thread, allowing you to format physical drives using ReFS but staying away from adding MiniNT to your registry.

    It looks nice, I would like to have that.

    It's a great idea.

    I'll put something together along with a bunch of hard drive/partition/imaging tools and utilities with command-line selection menus. I could put one together with MiniXP, too (my preferred OS since it runs on so little RAM it loads almost instantly from bootup), but people need to be very careful with that if they have multiple drives since they show up out of order most of the time in a PE environment.

    Hello biatche,

    I can't find any documentation on it, but I would assume that it would be the latest version.

    does appear hacky... but refs v3 does appear to have a lot of goodies in it.

    I currently have ReFS v3.1 running on my Win 10 Enterprise desktop. It did not require whatever method of running .vbs scripts and the like the DigitalLife.info link's author is going on about. It works on non-mirrored drives (as you can see in the screenshot below) and does not require the MiniNT registry entry that needs deleted after you use it or your system will boot thinking it's in PE mode.

    Hello DrEmpiricism,

    The MiniNT key is only to allow being able to format with ReFS, otherwise Windows 10 natively supports ReFS drives.
