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.

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:

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
There's a new version here i guess.
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.
When posting about an issue in the codec thread,
please state what Operating System you use.

I was wondering why this image was 170mb bigger than the one I have, yet had the same file name.

hi me need help for opening install.wim problems
Double click install.wim file, select 'Choose Program', Select notepad ...
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.
