Were you able to install the pre-SP1 image without any issues?
Did you use the DISM command to add the SP1 to the captured sysprepped wim image?

Yes the pre-SP1 image went ok.

Have never used the DISM command, how does that work ?

See links below for instructions on using DISM to service the image.

Once the contents of SP1 has been merged you can start deploying the new wim image using WDS again.
