    I have succeeded making wimboot image, and boot from it.
    And also applied wimboot image to a partition (as not wimboot), and succeeded making Refresh/Reset.
    But couldn't make Refresh/Reset on a wimboot windows.

    Any idea ?

    Firstly, you need to know that you cannot move a wimre.wim post-install or it will never re-enable.
    This means that if you don't replace it with the EXACT same file, it will never re-enable with reagentc

    So if you modify the winre at all during the process, it needs to be done before the first install, before you ever think about sysprep.

    To verify your reagentc status, just run reagentc /info

    It will list it as enabled or disabled.
    If it's disabled, you did it wrong.

    to test your reset/refresh you just need to go into recovery mode.
    There's 2 ways to do it:
    Code:
    shutdown /r /o /t 0
    or
    reagentc /boottore
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
