  • Hi,

    WinPE 2.0 was introduced since Windows Vista, ReFS was introduced since Windows Server 2012, you will not be able to create a ReFS parititon in WinPE 2.0, use WinPE for Windows Server 2012 instead.

  • Hi,

    If you want to create a partition with diskpart, you can perform the following steps:

    1. create partition primary size=1000 /you can adjust the size accordingly, the unit is MB
    2. assign letter=d   /you can assign drive letter to the partition or ignore this step
    3. format quick fs=refs   /format the partition with the format you want
