Hi all,
Sorry if there is not where I should post this.
The company I am currently working for hired a 3rd party vendor to do all the imaging for a short while.
They are using WinPE with ImageX and all seems to be working fine.
However I have never worked with either and I am now in charge of handling all the imaging. We owe the vendor a great sum of $$, so asking for any help with it is null.
I tried to learn how to do this all from scratch, but found it very indepth and a bit confusing.
From what I have read you can easily update the image and repackage it to push it out.
My question is how do I go about this? The image is a bit out dated and I want to do some other tweaks to it as well.
Can someone please point me in the right direction and remember I have never used either programs, so please explain in detail.

Thanks

I've successfully edited an older image just this past week. The image was in PE 2005 (the previous version).

I copied the CD to a folder on my C: drive called WinPE.
I made the change that I needed. I added a new driver and copied a new Ghost32.exe
I then when to the original PE folder and ran the command to generate a new image from the old source.

oscdimg -blocation -n sourceroot image_file

This creates an ISO image that you can burn to CD

Do you have the original PE source? Inside should be a Help file that shows how to do it very easily.

Install the WAIK (Microsoft Windows Automated Installation Kit) and take a look in the WinPE.chm.

It will have everything in here that you'll need for Building/Editing/Booting a PE image and a bunch of thing about ImageX.

Good luck.

Hi Michael,
Can you tell me exactly how I go about do this?
So far I have installed WAIK, but I do not know where the WinPE.chm is.
Sorry if I sound like such a noob, but that is because I am.

Thanks

Nevermind I figured it out.
I am sure I will have other questions to come.

Thanks for your help thus far.

Depending on where you installed the WAIK to on your PC (lets assume its in C:\Program Files) the winpe.chm here..... "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Docs\CHMs\WinPE.chm"

Take the time so read through it and you should be up to speed in a day. Remember that if you are using WinPE 2, then it's running a scaled down version of Vista. So if you need to add any additional drivers, make sure they are the vista drivers otherwise they won't work.

Good luck.

I have tried to follow the instructions, but I can not seem to open the install.wim file off the vista disc. I have tried 2 different discs and the same result.
I am not sure if this matters(I have not read ahead), but I am looking to set up an XP image. Should I still be trying to open the install.wim file? I did not find that file on the XP disc so I am thinking I do.
