4 posts in this topic

If I have modified system files and I want them to go into the windows install dvd ... I do have to mount the .wim to replace the old files, don't I ?

Probably. Windows protection would likely prevent you from replacing some of those files after the fact, or be restore from the store after a reboot.

No probably to it, YES

Best time and you will have to take permissions on some of those files to replace them even on the mounted image. I'm not sure whats up with that unless it is the mse I'm running or some secret background service. Just haven't had time to test and figure that out

I know what you are talking about. On some OSes, if I am working with a mounted image, *sometimes* it won't let me change some files. I have attributed this to Windows being "dumb" and treating any folder called System32 to be the one of the booted OS. :rolleyes:

But I rarely do any work using a Desktop OS (where this seems to happen most) and never have a problem modifying an image from a Server OS.
