Liting Win8.1 with Config File

14 posts in this topic

Hey

here a script that can make your life a bit easier :)

cmd:

dism /Append-Image /ImageFile:backup.wim /CaptureDir:d:\work\

wim\ /name:Name /ConfigFile:Wimscript.ini

script:

http://www.speedyshare.com/MQx9A/Wimscript.zip

just after u done setting ur windows u can run this script to save around 2GB and time compressing

btw its for 32bit its should work on 64bit too

how to apply it:

1. make a copy of install.wim

2. mount install.wim

3. use WTK first then remove metro with dism [optional]

4. run the cmd

5. then export it to new file to get the space back :)

When you say 2GB do you mean decompressed size, if yes, that would translate to about 500-600MB saving on the capture.wim size.

yes that's true

but its not final yet i might get to 2.5-3giga and 64bit version will go 3.5-4 giga or more

u can do that after using WTK and then removing metro with dism and in the end just run this script capturing the wim and save time ,size and installation time for testing without even "try" to lite

without app like winreducer or manually deleting

its will cut down work significantly

also if u planning to lite with winreducer it will save u around half hour or even more :)

Am luvving this concept but must say having trouble getting my head around the dism script in the "name" area especially. Have looked both here & on google directly on the MS site examples etc & can't quite get my head around it!! Can someone dumb it down for me?

Hey i gonna release small app for that soon its gonna alpha but still....

so how its should work

if u installed os on vmware and u wanna capture it to wim

u can use this script to filter files and folders so its wont capture and save time compressing and space

-or-

another option is using the old good wimfilter like is vlite using

and use it as a bat file

if u use this option u need to export it after saving the wim to see the space different

bat option is faster

u mean /name:Name ?

its the name of the wim its could anything u like ?

Thanks, paths are troubling me!!

If I put my copied wim into dir "w81" & mount the win then should I put the "Wimscript.ini" in same dir or in the main dism dir in windows?

Either way not happening? My cmd cannot be right

dism /Append-Image /ImageFile:install.wim /CaptureDir:c:\w81\wim\ /name:name /ConfigFile:Wimscript.ini

Only part really having a problem with is:

imagex /config wimscript.ini /append d: d:\imaging\data.wim "Drive D"

Have looked @ the MS page here for imagex: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766147%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

Which is identical to yours above.

Have tried inserting wimscript.ini directly in the work dir & imagex dir though not happening.

apologize for all the ??'s!

in imagex it mentions you must ref image path & image file!

eg image path: Path of the volume image to be captured

image file: Path of the existing wim file
