    Apply a WIM file?

    HI,

    Is there a way not using SCCM or anything just to make some bootable standalone media and apply a WIM file to that machine please?

    Thanks

    Walkthrough: Boot Windows PE from Hard Disk

    Think tweaking that should enable you to.

    There sure is.

    After you have booted into Windows PE, you need to partition the disk using diskpart and then apply the wim to the relevant drive.

    Only issue will be drivers as you have to manually install them. Or add them to the image. Thats where mdt or sccm 2012 makes it easier.

    FN, I have a script or two that you can use. If you want, I will send them to you via email or whatever means you choose. We do that here now, since our Zen Imaging was never able to do windows 7 with any amount of success.
