Windows 10 Reset this PC drivers missing


  • Hi All,

    I created a Window 10 Pro 1607 USB installation that included the Surface Pro 4 drivers injected into the install.wim to reinstall my Surface Pro 4 which worked without problem.

    What I've discovered since then is that if I use the recovery feature "Windows Reset" to reset the Windows 10 Pro OS  like new its does so successfully but missing all drivers?

    The Windows Recovery partition and winre.wim work without problem as the OS is completely reinstalled.

    This is by design ive read but how do I customise the recovery so that is also reinstalls the drivers? I've read that Windows reset mechanism rebuilds the OS itself from the WinSXS folder to minimise the size of the recovery files required.

    How can I achieve using the windows reset feature without using the recovery creator to backup the entire .wim to USB?
