  1. 'The handle is invalid" when using Dism /Capture-Image /ImageFile:"C:\fabrikam.wim"...


    error: 6.

    And C: is the drive letter that I want to capture image.

    I am using Windows 10 1709 & Windows PE 1709(version: 10.0.16299.15) as well.

    I have tried another version of Windows PE 1803, but the error is the same.

    The log just told me a file or directory may be missing, without telling me where/what exactly was wrong.


    How should I do? Thanks in advance!

    :)

  2. WHAT'S THE DIFFRENCE BETWEEN "Capture-CustomImage" and "Capture-Image" WHILE CAPTURING IMAGE USING DISM

    Hi.

    /Capture-CustomImage only captures the customization files. It can’t be used to capture installation files into a new WIM.

    /Capture-Image

    Captures an image of a drive to a new .wim file. Captured directories include all subfolders and data. You cannot capture an empty directory. A directory must contain at least one file.

    Using Dism to capture and apply windows 10 images to a partition


    Hi guys, so a few days ago my windows 10 crashed so I had to format and reinstall windows 7 then upgrade to windows 10, a hard work to do. So I started to search about how to capture the image of C: where the windows 10 is running and I found Dism. Now I have a lot of questions about it, let me start with the capture of C: as an image.wim.

    1- Does dism Capture-Image works for windows 10?

    I used the following comand to capture a image:
    Code:
    Code:
    dism.exe /Capture-Image /ImageFile:D:\Image_of_Windows_10.wim /CaptureDir:C:\ /Name:Windows_10 /compress fast
    It generated a .WIM file with 16 Gb.

    2- Is FAST option better than MAXIMUM? Or should I use NONE instead?

    3- Now with the image of the c: stored in hard drive, if my windows 10 crashes, is this how I should recover it? applying the image file .WIM or should I format the partition first?

    Code:
    Code:
    dism /Apply-Image /ImageFile:D:\Image_of_Windows_10.wim /Index:1 /ApplyDir:C:\
    4- After using DISM to apply will windows 10 boot and work like a charm?

    5- Do I have to configure the boot with BCDBOOT?

    Code:
    Code:
    C:\Windows\System32\bcdboot C:\Windows
    That's all folks, please someone could be kind and answer me?

    'The handle is invalid" when using Dism /Capture-Image /ImageFile:"C:\fabrikam.wim"...

    How to get damn DISM to work?

    Thx guys, I'll compress this data into a blog post. For all the so called guides I've read, not a single one mentioned it has to be WIM file (some listed even ESD which clearly doesn't work) or that certain ISO images don't work with DISM.

    After I've done DISM thingie, SFC also managed to repair stuff. Which is what I've needed here.
