Unable to remove packages

6 posts in this topic

I have removed 66 packages from the Windows 8 install.wim. When I try to remove additional packages I get the following error:

The specified image is no longer serviceable and may be corrupted.

Discard the modified image and start again.

I have tried restarting the computer to no avail. What can I do?

A. You don't restart Computer with a mounted image, NEVER

did I say NEVER

If error occurs dismount the image discarding changes.

Dism.exe /unmount-wim /mountdir:C:\zMountDir /discard

I then run a Cleanup command which Dism.exe /Cleanup-Wim, Delete mountdir, Cleanup registry

Also, don't ever logoff and then log back in. The mount doesn't like that either.
