Boot Img file disappears in WDS 2003

Hello,

I'm attempting to setup a customised boot image in Windows Deployment Services 2003 to act as a Windows PE boot, but the image file keeps disappearing when I refresh WDS. This only occurs with the custom boot image - if I add a fresh boot.wim (from a Windows 7 disc) it doesn't do its vanishing trick.

The customisation I've done involves adding a network driver to an offline image using DISM from Win AIK - here is the procedure: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd744355(v=ws.10).aspx#AddDriverDISM

When I then add the boot image in WDS it says it has been added successfully, but if I refresh the service it disappears without a trace.

This has been solved now - it was because I was selecting index 1 when mounting the image to inject drivers, and this may have been corrupting the image. Selecting index 2 (the setup index) was the correct method.
