descriptionCan't format. EmptyCan't format.


I try to make a Lite edition from Windows Pro 10 TH2 x64 with EX-100 v0.5.2.0 but i never can format during install.
I get a errror 0X..........
When a skip format and proceed with the install everything works fine but when i am in Windows i still can't format a partion.
When i rightclick on a parttion i can select format and the progam opens but when i start format i got the message "can not complete the formatting".
Anybody know what component causes the problem.

I had exactly the same issue as you creating a Dutch language only installation.
This seems to be due to the fact that you are removing the United States language:
" Element Category="Remove - Languages" Name="United States" Selected="true" Value="en-US"  "

If you dont have it removed, formatting will work.

On the other hand: since you will have two languages installed (Dutch and US), the location bar will automatically be enabled . I overcame this issue by having following registry settings done during OOBE:

reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload" /f

reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload" /v "1" /t REG_SZ /d "00000409" /f

Hope this will help you! Very Happy

Thanks for your reply Geert.
I never thought that a language could cause this problem but it make sense because in all my attempts i always select all the languages to remove.
I gonna make a new iso with the US language and let you know if it works.

I made a new ISO and keep the US language in it and everything works.
I can format a partition during the install and in Win10 Very Happy 
I now have a nice clean Dutch Win 10 Pro without I.E WMP and all the apps and some tweaks but need to do some testing.

And it looks like we still can't format anywithing with WREX100.  I tried formatting both an SDCard as well as a USB Flash drive.  When that failed I tried doing it through Disk Management and it's very broken there.
