  1. Mount-wim switch is not removed it's just that boot.wim is not copied to ISO\sources anymore. Just add copy "%SOURCE%\winpe.wim" "%DEST%\%TEMPL%\sources\boot.wim" to your copype.cmd before the line wher you mount the image.
  2. @Jazkal: Thanks for your steps... I tried the steps given in the help file for the new WAIK for Windows 7 RC and it works!! So I've created a new topic with these steps. Please go through the same. Looking forward to your comments. Link: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...st&p=856433
  3. Borrows from the installation guide distributed along with WAIK Step 1: Set up a Windows PE build environment In this step, you will create a directory structure that supports building a Windows PE image. On your technician computer, click Start, point to All Programs point to Windows OPK or Windows AIK, right-click Deployment Tools Command Prompt, and then select Run as administrator. The menu shortcut opens a command-prompt window and automatically sets environment variables to point to all the necessary tools. By default, all tools are installed at C:\Program Files\<version>\Tools, where <version> can be Windows OPK or Windows AIK. At the command prompt, run the Copype.cmd script. The script requires two arguments: hardware architecture and destination location. For example, copype.cmd <architecture> <destination> where <architecture> can be x86, amd64, or ia64 and <destination> is a path to a local directory. For example, copype.cmd x86 c:\winpe_x86 The script creates the following directory structure and copies all the necessary files for that architecture. For example, \winpe_x86 \winpe_x86\ISO \winpe_x86\mount Copy the base image (Winpe.wim) into the \Winpe_x86\ISO\sources folder and rename the file to Boot.wim. copy c:\winpe_x86\winpe.wim c:\winpe_x86\ISO\sources\boot.wim Step 2: Add boot supportIn this step, you will add boot files to your Windows PE image. Before you can add files to the image, you must expand the image by using the DISM /Mount-Wim command. At the command prompt, apply the image to the \mount directory by using the DISM tool. For example, Dism /Mount-Wim /Wimfile:c:\winpe_x86\ISO\sources\boot.wim /index:1 /MountDir:C:\winpe_x86\mount Add the appropriate boot support files and directory. For example, copy c:\winpe_x86\ISO\bootmgr c:\winpe_x86\mount mkdir c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot xcopy /cherky C:\winpe_x86\ISO\boot C:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\ Step 3: (Optional) Add additional customizationsThis step is optional but recommended. You can use ImageX to add applications and scripts to your Windows PE image that you might need while working in Windows PE. ImageX is a tool for capturing and applying images during deployment scenarios. For example, at a command prompt, type: copy “c:\program files\<version>\Tools\x86\ImageX.exe” c:\winpe_x86\mount where <version> can be Windows OPK or Windows AIK and <architecture> can be x86, amd64, or ia64. In the previous example, the tools are not loaded into memory during a Windows PE RAM boot. The media must be available to access the tools. Step 4: Configure BCD storeIn this step, you create a new boot-configuration file, called BCD, by using BCDEdit. BCD, which replaces Boot.ini, is a command-line tool designed to manage BCD stores. BCDEdit is available in Windows PE and Windows® 7. For example, Del c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\BCD Bcdedit /createstore c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\BCD Bcdedit /store c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\BCD -create {bootmgr} /d “Boot Manager” Bcdedit /store c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\BCD -set {bootmgr} device boot Bcdedit /store c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\BCD -create /d “WINPE” -application osloader The last command returns a GUID value. Substitute this value for <GUID> in the following examples. Bcdedit /store c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\BCD -set <GUID> osdevice boot Bcdedit /store c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\BCD -set <GUID> device boot Bcdedit /store c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\BCD -set <GUID> path \windows\system32\winload.exe Bcdedit /store c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\BCD -set <GUID> systemroot \windows Bcdedit /store c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\BCD -set <GUID> winpe yes Bcdedit /store c:\winpe_x86\mount\boot\BCD -displayorder <GUID> -addlast Step 5: Create a bootable CD-ROM or DVD-ROMIn this step, you put a Windows PE RAM disk onto a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM. This option requires that you create an .iso file by using the Oscdimg tool. On your technician computer, create an .iso file with the Oscdimg tool. At a command prompt, type: oscdimg -n -m -o -bc:\winpe_x86\etfsboot.com c:\winpe_x86\mount c:\winpe_x86\winpe_x86.iso To build an Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)—Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) .iso file, use the following commands: oscdimg.exe -bc:\winpe-x64-efi\efisys.bin -pEF -u1 -udfver102 c:\winpe-x64-efi\ISO x64-efi-winpe.iso For Itanium-based architecture, replace Etfsboot.com with Efisys.bin. The Oscdimg tool is not supported on an Itanium-64 computer running Windows Server 2003. Burn the image file (Winpe_x86.iso) onto a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM.
  4. Verified that the folder winpe_x86 doesn't exist when I call copype.cmd. But still I don't see boot.wim being created. So, should I create a boot.wim ?
  5. In addition the output of "call copype.cmd x86 C:\PE\winpe_x86" is as follows: C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools>call copype.cmd x86 C:\PE\winpe_x86 =================================================== Creating Windows PE customization working directory C:\PE\winpe_x86 =================================================== 1 file(s) copied. 1 file(s) copied.

  7. Thanks for the reply. I have "Windows Automated Installation Kit for Windows 7" installed and followed step 2 (I had C:\PE folder created in advance) . It didn't create boot.wim under C:\PE\winpe_x86\ISO\Sources. As a result I'm unable to proceed further. BTW, I'm using a WinXPPRO SP3 machine.
  8. I'm unable to locate boot.wim in the location mentioned. Where will i find it? How should I create it ?
