Customising .wim file

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I am still building and keeping .wim images in vmware...

I usually just use the .wim files for new installations but with the absence of Samsung nvme drivers I would like to add them to my Windows install media....

To save spending time downloading all updates etc....is there anything I need to think about before just adding my install wim to a USB boot media?

I then have my custom .wim with all my stuff instead of slippstreaming....everything into a new build....

Is this about "Customizing Windows and Graphics" in relation to installation or do you want me to move the topic?

OK then.

For this, there is still the ability to use drivers that are not put into the image, but stored elsewhere or on a network drive, as in the example:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/customize/desktop/unattend/microsoft-windows-pnpcustomizationsnonwinpe-driverpaths

I  do not use this method myself, as I use Setup.exe method only in the initial stage of creating an image. My imaging method uses DISM. And in that case, you can use DISM to add drivers to an offline installation, say... after laying down the image and after the bcdboot commands if you want. Using DISM /Image:c:\ or whichever letter, you can add drivers that way.
