    Anyone does know why the f**k this entry is there on a stock W10 Pro install?
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide\Configuration]
    "DisableResetbase"=dword:00000001

    Does it has anything to do with the command

    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase ??

    It might be there for legacy support. I have no problem resetbase'ing a pre-installed or post-installed system, both online and offline.

    After "dism ... /ResetBase" there is no way to revert a bad update.

    Edit: "dism ... /ResetBase" makes all previously installed updates permanent. Updates installed afterwards can still be uninstalled until you issue another "dism ... /ResetBase", ... and so on. This command is like setting up a new 'checkpoint'.

    Is this entry related to the inability to remove install files for unused features? Iā€™m too afraid to check on my main system and do not bother firing up a VM.
