Capture image in WES 7 by DISM tool RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have a question, as i am using the method in Windows 10 IoT LTSC capturing image by DISM by below cmd

    Capture System Partition

    DISM /Capture-Image /ImageFile:C:\system.wim /CaptureDir:D:\ /Name:"System Partition"


    Capture Windows OS partition

    DISM /Capture-Image /ImageFile:C:\windows.wim /CaptureDir:E:\ /Name:"Windows Partition"


    before doing this process i have create a WINPE bootable pendrive by below CMD 

    Creating PE for Windows 10

    copype x86 C:\WinPE_x8

    To make bootable Windows PE USB, 

    MakeWinPEMedia /UFD C:\WinPE_x86 H:

    Now i have the question shell i use same process in WES 7 and WE8S , I know the ADK tool is different shell i use the ADK or IBW tool which is in WES7 and WE8S for creating WinpE so after that can i use the same capture cmd (DISM /Capture-Image /ImageFile:C:\windows.wim /CaptureDir:E:\ /Name:"Windows Partition") which is in Windows 10 can i use in WES7 and WE8S ?

    and apply the image by cmd 

    Deploy an image by typing below commands

      DISM Apply-Image /ImageFile:D:\windows.wim /Index:1 /ApplyDir:C:\

    or shell i use only the imagex cmd (below)which is we always use in WES7 for capturing and applying

    CMD: d:\imagexc/capture c: d:\WES7.WIM "Windows Embedded Standard"

    please help on this

  • Rather than capturing the partitions to WIM files, you could capture the whole disk image to a FFU file using DISM. Please see the following article:

  • if you are unhappy using the FFU method then stay with the DISM process

    imagex has been retired of course, and DISM is the main tool for Wes 7, WE8S, Win10

    so if you wish to maintain maximium compatibility across the OS types, DISM is the way forward
