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 ?

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