how can I mount a WIM image using imageX

Recommended Posts

You must have the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) installed first.


Once done, Open a Command Prompt window and then change to the


C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86




To mount a WIM file use the following format:-


ImageX /mountrw c:\somedir\someimage.wim 1 c:\somedir\mount



That's it, you can now edit files in c:\somedir\mount and once done you'll have to commit those changes using the unmount switch in imageX to the WIM image using:-


ImageX /unmount /commit c:\somedir\mount


How To inject drivers into an offline WIM image


First use the ImageX /mountrw command-line utility to mount the image file. Then use PKGMGR to inject the new driver into the Windows Image file by using the unattended answer file that you previously created in Windows SIM.


Once done, use the ImageX /unmount /commit command to save the modifications that you have made to the offline image.



fyi.. here is a post describing editing of a WIM file to inject drivers



Note: Any modifications that you have made to the offline image will be disregarded unless you utilize the ImageX /unmount /commit command.


Please note there is a Gui version of imagex available here
