I use K2000 3.6 capture .WIM Image and put in the system images. Now if I want to modify the WIM content, e.g. Add a patch to the image using WinToolKit. Although I can find .WIM image \\K2000\peinst\wim, but the directory is readony. How to do that, is there any suggestion for that?

copy the wim down make your changes and deploy that to a drive using imagex /apply command, DO NOT BOOT to this drive, just boot to KBE and recapture as new wim.

or copy to a share and modify and use this method to deploy it from the share in the future

You can't. You would need to copy the image down, mount it, use DISM to apply patches, commit it and then redeploy using imagex. Re-sysprep and re-capture.  Some people will keep an test machine that has Windows without running sysprep, capture an image of it to keep so you don't run into issues with the number of times sysprep can be run.  Apply any updates to this machine, capture a non-sysprepped version, boot it back into windows, run sysprep, capture that image and then redeploy the previous non-sysprepped image back to the test machine. A lot of work but I don't know of any other way to get around it.

  • I use the VM method creating checkpoint before sysprep, works well for keeping things up to date. But i do / have had the need to modify a wim and use the copy / re-capture method mentioned above.
