Is there any possible way to mimic the "resetbase" option in Windows 8 (not 8.1)?

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

Hi silumor

 

 

You will only Dism command if Sfc command fails to repair corrupted files.

 

Please boot your computer with Windows Setup Media and from Windows Recovery Environment start the Command Prompt.

Please type below command into Command Prompt and press Enter key.

The following command scans integrity of all protected Windows system files and repairs files with problems when possible.
 

Sfc  /Scannow   /OFFBOOTDIR=D:\   /OFFWINDIR=D:\Windows


Please replace partition letter D: with Windows installed partition letter.  When computer boots into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) environment the drive letter assign to Windows partition may not be C: drive letter because Windows 7, 8 , 8.1 and 10 creates a separate system partition when it's installed from scratch. The system partition contains boot files WinRE assigns the system partition the C: drive letter and the Windows installed partition will be assign any other drive letter usually D: drive letter is assign to Windows installed partition. The Bcdedit /enum | find "osdevice" command can be use to find out the drive letter of the Windows installed partition the output of the Bcdedit command is similar to this osdevice partition=D:. The drive letter after partition= is the drive letter of the Windows partition.

 

 

If Sfc command not resolve the boot problem execute below command and restart your computer.

dism  /Image:C:\    /Cleanup-Image   /RevertPendingActions

Replace C:\ partition letter with a partition letter of Windows OS installed partition.

Please explain why you are trying to run a DISM command.

 

I would suggest running the Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth command.  I would do this before making other changes.

@dc3

 

Are you responding to me or the OP?

:)

 

As for me, I'm just trying to further shrink the Component Store.

Well there's nothing wrong with my system, and I'm familiar with DISM for managing components.  I'm simply interested in getting more of the component store removed.  I wished there was the same functionality in Windows 8 as in Windows 8.1.  In the latter, the DISM cleanup command includes parameters for /AnalyzeComponentStore and /Restbase which look cool for removing more of the Component Store bloat.

 

So I just wondered if there was a way around these limitations (even with a tool other than DISM).  But my system is fine and healthy as it is.

I brought up this topic on MSFN awhile back, so I just though I'd revisit it.

How about -

 

If it ain't broke, don't fix it !

 

Win 8 went end of life in January 2016, why operate an unsupported OS particularly if you go on-line with it ?

[a] Why the yelling? It wasn't about repairing.  It was about tweaking.  Nothing ever wrong with seeing how to eradicate more of the Component Store.  The command was obviously put in place for Windows 8.1, so even Microsoft eventually saw a need for it.

 

[b]  As for Windows 8, actually a few good reasons to run it over Windows 8.1.  First off, as for your security concerns, you can put those to rest.  You just install updates from the original build of Windows Server 2012.  They're codebase identical.  In fact you have a vista thread on this forum where the same thing is being done with Server 2008 updates.

 

But in terms of benefit, hmmm let's see:

 

*  No Telemetry

*  No GWX

*  No CPU blocking

 

It's basically a current OS.  And it's updateable with Server 2012 updates from the catalog, so I'm good.
