OK, so I'm doing a lot of Windows 8 testing, and WinNTSetup is proving once again to be a WONDERFUL tool!!!
Just two things I'd like to bring up:
(1) I guess WinNTSetup is now officially "Windows 8 ready"? So in the upper right corner (on the tab) you can add a "8" so it reads "Vista/7/2008/8
(2) I am testing with different ISO's, one is an Enterprise version (MSDN) with only one image in the Install.wim. The other is a Core/Pro version, so I had to add "wimindex:2" to the command line. But I can't get this to work. Now, from past experience, this must be something I'm doing wrong, but still I wanted to ask you if you're aware of problems with the -wimindex commandline switch?
Thanks! I love WinNTSetup!!!!!
EDIT: Did a little more testing with a Win8 All-In-One DVD (usually not my favorite, but this one was interesting for me, because it also has NET35 integrated, which I like. So until I figure out how to do that myself, I'll keep this one). It has these "images" in the wim:
Index : 1 Name : Windows 8
Description : Select to install Windows 8 (32-bits).
Index : 2 Name : Windows 8 Pro
Description : Select to install Windows 8 Pro (32-bits).
Index : 3 Name : Windows 8 Enterprise
Description : Select to install Windows 8 Enterprise (32-bits).
Index : 4 Name : Windows 8
Description : Select to install Windows 8 (64-bits).
Index : 5 Name : Windows 8 Pro
Description : Select to install Windows 8 Pro (64-bits).
Index : 6 Name : Windows 8 Enterprise
Description : Select to install Windows 8 Enterprise (64-bits).
Two things happen when I run WinNTSetup and use the /wimindex: commandline option:
(1) The description of the selected version under "Select location of install.wim file" is not automatically adjusted (it only corects itself after I manually pick the same or a different image in the dropdown box)
(2) /wimindex:1 doesn't work, it selects the 3rd image!? (Enterprise 32bit)
All the others (wimindex:2 through 6) work (except for the description)
