how to edit a wim

Recommended Posts


You'd have to use imagex.exe /mount(rw) or GImageX. (you'll need the Windows AIK for both options, if I'm not mistaken.)

md c:\mount

imagex /mountrw xxx.wim 2 c:\mount

the 2 there says which image in the wim to mount. i can't remember how to list them, but i usually need #2.

make your changes, then imagex /unmount /commit c:\mount

WIM on XP? Heck, I'd like to be able to edit them on Vista! I found imagex on my recovery disk, but so far if I try to use it, all that happens is the window I'm in closes. I heard the only way to have a plain and simple WIM editor is to be part of a beta testing group at MS, but registrations for it are closed. I also heard that Vista SP2 would include that editor. So it's possible that until that happens and somone ports the program to XP (or makes a similar one) you're out of luck.
