question: Adding drivers to boot.wim file using Dism command

Post by siamandm »

Hello All,

I'm trying to add drives to boot.wim file in order to install the missing drivers during installing windows 10, I have followed the steps in this article
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windo ... windows-11

but instead of this install.wim file I used boot.wim as I couldn't find the install.wim file
Dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:C:\test\images\boot.wim /MountDir:C:\test\offline

and I have injected the driver using these commands

Dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:C:\test\images\boot.wim /index:2 /MountDir:C:\test\offline

Dism /Image:C:\test\offline /Add-Driver /Driver:c:\drivers /Recurse

Dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:C:\test\offline /Commit


but when I use the flash drive to install the windows it is not installing the missing drivers which I added them.

what could you be the issue please?

How did you determine that the correct index is 2?

Did you use:

Dism /Image:C:\test\offline /Get-Drivers

to check that the drivers were really added?
