Commands for working with Windows PE 3.0 and the new WAIK


Recommended Posts

I hope this information may be helpful to others. Sande


Yes indeed it is! I have been trying all day to learn what is causing error 87 on every single DISM command. It was your #1, bad wimfltr driver left over from a previous WAIK installation. I had uninstalled WAIK for W7, as I needed to install Vista WAIK for my current task.

DISM now running like a champ! :thumbup

Kind regards,

Copy D:\MakePE3\Windows\System32\*.* C:\PE\Winpe_x86\Mount\Windows\System32

Copy D:\MakePE3\Icon\*.* C:\PE\Winpe_x86\ISO

What is this?

It's not the KB3AIK_EN cd so what cd/dvd is this?

I try to run your script and I understand that I need some system files...

I'm hoping you have something set to notify you of replies since this is several months old.

I was hoping you could give me some more insight into your solution to stop the unknown command issues with dism. I cannot find any reference on my system to the inf file you mentioned in your post (and i don't have virtual server installed).

the only switches that dism will accept on my system is /image and /online everything else results in an error

c:\>dism /mount-wim

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool

Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Error: 87

The mount-wim option is unknown.

For more information, refer to the help by running DISM.exe /?.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

Or if anyone else has any information, please do chime in.


I was able to get dism to start acting correctly by replacing wimgapi.dll in system32 with the copy found in the waik\tools\[architecture] folder

The IEEE 802.1X authentication protocol is not supported in Windows Preinstall Environment (PE) 3.0, but now there is a MS fix (394905_intl_x64_zip.exe) that includes

    hotfix.txt                              2.155
    KB972831.txt                              276
    pkg.log                               268.742
    Windows6.1-KB972831-x64.cab         2.372.591
    Windows6.1-KB972831-x64.msu         2.491.482
my problem is now, that I have no idea how I get that hotfix integrated into the WinPE. I know I must use Windows AIK to integrate it into the Boot.wim but because I am new on Windows AIK I am sure I need a list of commands to get this done

any help ?

Use DISM add-package on that MSU.

The actual howto's being here:



This is simpler/more to the point:


Though normally updates are integrated to the install.wim, not to the boot.wim, it is possible that there are some other pre-requisites/sub-systems that need to be integrated as well to have that working. :unsure:

It's the same link twice, once in German, the second in English. :unsure:

The procedure is rather complex (actually more lengthy then complex), but it is broken down in 21 points, WHICH one(s) are not clear to you? :dubbio:
