    Custom install.wim - going downhill


    I seem to be going backward. I'm using the same autounattend.xml but now the install is failing with the following error:


    Custom install.wim - going downhill [​IMG]


    This is the file:

    This is installing to a Oracle VM, 50GB vdi, 4GB ram. ISO was created with oscdimg. install.wim is the 7GB Pro X64 one I have already used to install to a Oracle VM two nights ago.

    I'm stumped, not sure what to try next.

    Compacting a wim file?

    Sorry, no idea where to put this. I just recently learned how to use dism. I use it to slipstream all hotfixes and ie10 ect into an AIO install disc. The problem is, it creates a huge install.wim after 8 index mounts and slipstreams. Considering all 8 images use the same darn wim and files, don't know why it has to increase the wim size by 1gig. Either I need to figure out how to use the same wim.install file for all indexes, or I need to compact the wim file which is now 4gbs with ie10 and all updates to April. Any way to do either?

    Anyone interested in a group effort for a custom Win10 ISO? (Adv Users Only)

    I make this WIMs. Let me help you out.

    At the time zone selection screen press CTRL-SHIFT-F3 during install.

    Do whatever you want. I suggest using power shell to remove metro app installation and deregistering new user accounts from having my them installed.

    Run sysprep after your done tinkering. I suggest using the shutdown switch I always miss those pesky reboots.

    Then capture your WIM. Of course I do it via WDS but DISM can capture one. If you would like to create a capture image for WDS I suggest the server 180 trial. Wouldn't want silly consumer peasants too have access too free tools.
