Might note
Nice Docs but does not include the full WAIK for 32 and 64. >> ImgMgr.EXE < Need that if you're looking to see what all is available.
Only available right now if you download the full BDD of which it's a sub part. The folder for WAIK is 719 MB here out of a 1.5GB download of BDD.
BTW, same exact doc's contained within the Full.

From:
Windows PEToolsCommandPrompt

I created the image & mount points:
mkdirc:\winre_image
mkdirc:\winre_mount

Inserted the Vista MSDN disc into drive d:
Tried to do this:
***Copy the Windows PE image from the installation media using ImageX:

imagex.exe /export /boot d:\sources\boot.wim 2 c:\winre_image\winre.wim “Windows Recovery Environment”

I get this:

ImageX Tool for Windows
Copyright © Microsoft Corp. 1981-2005. All rights reserved.


IMAGEX [FLAGS] /EXPORT src_file src_number | src_name dest_file dest_name

Exports a copy of the specified image to another WIM file.

src_file - The path of the WIM file that contains the image to be copied.
src_number - The number that identifies the image within the source WIM.
src_name - The name that identifies the image within the source WIM.
dest_file - The path of the WIM file that will receive the image copy.
dest_name - The unique name for the image in the destination WIM.

Accepted FLAGS:

/BOOT
Marks a volume image as bootable. Available for Windows PE images only.

/CHECK
Enables WIM integrity checking. If not provided, existing checks are removed.

/COMPRESS [maximum | fast | none]
Specifies the type of compression used when exporting to a new WIM file.

/REF splitwim2.swm
Enables the reference of split WIM (SWM) files.

splitwim2.swm - Path to additional split file(s). Wild cards are accepted.

Comments:
If src_name is "*" then all images are exported to dest_file.

Example:
imagex /export d:\imaging\data.wim 1 d:\imaging\newfile.wim "Exported Image"

>Any ideas what went went wrong. Tried various options/flags. Same results.

Do you need all that or can you get away with just the Business Desktop Deployment 2007 download? It's only 27MB. Just getting it now...


UPDATE: Ah I see this lets you download the tools you need. Cool.

To give you some information on the updated WAIK released 02/05/07

The previously released WAIK came with 5 WinPE language packs.
The newly released WAIK comes with 25 language packs.

All othe files have not changed.

Hopefully this information will save alot of people from downloading what they already have.

hi me need help for opening install.wim problems


Double click install.wim file, select 'Choose Program', Select notepad ...

Seriously though:

Is this related to downloading the WAIK? Probably not.
Have you provided enough information for someone to diagnose your problem and offer possible solutions? No.
Will anyone post anything that can help solve your problem. I don't think so.

Please help us to help you.

I am facing problem with image creation on an Acer Travelmate notebook.
Command:
imagex /capture /compress maximum c: g:\6292c.wim "TM 6292 drive c".
Every time at "Progress 70%, 21:41 mins remaining", I got this error: "[Error: 112] c:\Windows\System32\DriveStore\FileRepository\winmobil.inf_1c3787bf\wcescomm.dll. Error imaging drive [c:\]. There is not enough space on the disk."

free disk space on c: is 62GB
free disk spac eon g: is 249GB

Anyone can figure out what is the problem?
