You can copy

your theme files to (Mounted WIM Folder)\Windows\Resources\Themes

your wallpaper files to (Mounted WIM Folder)\Windows\Web\Wallpaper

by the way don't forget to copy uxtheme files (to WIM\windows\system32) for your custom themes.

I don't know how to set your default wallpaper and theme but I think you can found it in the forum

(If there is writing errors sorry for English, I'm not English)

The WAIK documentation has all the information you need to change the default theme. I don't remember what are the lines to be added to the XML file right now.

Yeah I've found how to change default theme.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes]

"InstallTheme"

"InstallVisualStyle"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ThemeManager]

DLLName (It can be different)

You should edit this sections in Regedit.

You can edit these with WIM Registry Editor from Vista Update Toolkit.

You can also use a reg file.

Wallpapers can be selected from OOBE but I think you can also change them via regedit.

(sorry for English if did error)
