Windows 8 – Reset Your PC using Chocolatey

I don’t want to do too much copy and paste, go and read this blog post from Maarten Balliauw

this is how I can reinstall most of the software I use with a couple of command line commands

Go to http://www.myget.org,

  • setup your feed
  • add http://chocolatey.org/api/v2/ to the package sources
  • feeds
  • add all the packages you want to install.
  • packages

Install chocolatey on your machine:

@powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -Command “iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString(‘https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1’))” && SET PATH=%PATH%;%systemdrive%\chocolatey\bin

and install all the packages from the feed you just created:
cinst All -source http://www.myget.org/F/smnbsswin8
