    Disappearing Boot.wim file

    Hi guys

    Im having a rather weird issue.

    I am using DISM to insert some drivers into the boot.wim file. This is because the standard image does not have the correct networking drivers to deploy the image. Anyway, the insertion process goes fine, mounting the wim runs fine, and so does committing the changes and dismounting the wim.

    The problem begins when i am inserting the wim into WDS. I add the image as normal, the process succeeds and thinking all is well, i close down WDS.

    I boot the machine to be imaged and low and behold my boot.wim file isnt showing. After looking on the server i notice it has totally disappeared, only my capture images are shown. So i readd the image thinking there was a problem, shut wds down and then reopen it to check and the image has gone AGAIN?!

    Has anyone had this problem and know the solution? It isnt an issue with the drivers as i customised a capture.wim image with the drivers and they work fine and dont disappear!

    Just a quick update, having looked at the event log, the server is saying that the wim file doesnt contain any bootable images.

    Well... wha? anyone got a clue?

    Me no likey WDS. its too complicated!

    Anyway, from more research it seems that dism isnt capable of making bootable boot.wim files, i need to use imagex to create the boot.wim file using the /boot switch.

    Anyone else seen this?

    Also anyone else noticed this forum has really LOW activity? :P
