    Push button reset


    Push button reset partition was just found on my win10 pro machine.
    google search revealed it was seemly an updated version of a restore point.
    it takes up 4.2 gigs of the 16 gig partition.
    Instructions in its use are sadly lacking.
    Anyone have any experience with this ?

    :)

    Push button reset


    Hello,

    I'm working for a project where we want to customize Win10 and retain the customization after a Push Button Reset.

    I was able to create a ppkg package with scanstate to retain apps.

    We would like to find a way to retain some user settings as well like favorites and background. I was customizing the Administrator account and using the copy profile in the unattend.xml. This works fine for initial deployment. So I thought that I would scanstate the Administrator profile and run loadstate with Push Button Reset as well. The resetconfig.xml located in C:\recovery\oem point to an enablecustomization.cmd.

    "%TARGETOSDRIVE%\Recovery\OEM\usmt10\loadstate.exe" "%TARGETOSDRIVE%\Recovery\OEM" /c
    copy "%TARGETOSDRIVE%\Recovery\OEM\Unattend.xml" "%TARGETOS%\Panther\Unattend.xml" /y
    copy "%TARGETOSDRIVE%\Recovery\OEM\Startmenu.xml" "%TARGETOSDRIVE%\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\LayoutModification.xml" /y

    The usmt.mig file is in C:\recovery\oem\usmt

    After Push Button Reset is finished. I can create a new account and see that the startmenu and applications are retained. However not the profile. Setupact.log. I see that it runs loadstate and a few lines below there is an error code 36. According to docs.microsoft.com, error code 36 means USMT_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_PLATFORM

    Maybe loadstate cannot be run in this environment during setup. Do I have other option to retain settings after Push Button Reset?

    Thanks,

    Edy

    Thanks Kari - Is it possible to use this recovery partition with Push Button Reset too? About the boot menu, does it start Windows 10 after a certain time automatically or will the user need to select the startup partition each time?

    Push button reset

    Making two buttons reset+power to turn on computer when pushed together?

    The simple purpose of a power button is to short those two pins on the motherboard header. Simply put, unplug the silly pins for the reset switch. Send the + cable to the reset button, then - cable to the power button, and then run a cable between the two buttons, as essentially all they need to do is complete a circuit to enable the short.
