Hello, thanks for the replies. I didn't see a way with WAIK to add programs. I just wanted to see if there was something I was missing. I will try audit mode/sysprep. Does the 'generalize' option repackage it to where I could deploy it to different sets of hardware(different hdd sizes, processor/motherboard combos)? Also, I used Windows Updates Downloader and downloaded all the .msu updates in the update list but when I used DISM to apply the updates, it finishes stating that one failed. I ignored the one package and repacked the .WIM. Upon installing windows with the updated .WIM, it gets to the last stage, finalizing install i believe, and gives me an error that it could not install all services, please restart installation. Any ideas? I can get the exact message/screenshot if needed. Thanks again. Wolfgang
Hello all, I'm relatively new to Windows unattended installs and customizing images. I have found how to use DISM to apply MSU updates but I am unable to find how to install programs to a mounted WIM. I'm not even sure if what I'm trying to do is possible since I haven't been able to find anything on the subject. What I would like to do is to be able to mount my install.wim to a local folder and from there, install programs such as Adobe Acrobat or MS Office and then unmount the image and commit the changes. Any ideas? If I'm in the wrong place, or someone has covered this topic already, please point me in the right direction. Thanks Wolfgang
