I’m sure this is something not too difficult w/ DISM, but I can mount, add packages, & un mount w/ the commit option; however, my wonder/problem after the updates are done & un mounted, how exactly do you put the updated install.wim in action?
I copy all the files off the USB drive Windows is installed from to the C drive. I create a folder called source, mount the wim from that folder to a folder called mount. I make a folder called ups, which is where I put all of my updates.
I’ve tried copying the whole updated install.wim to the USB drive replacing the old install.wim, but when I install Windows again none of the updates are integrated. When I run Windows update the same # of updates are available to download before I did the update.
I’ve copied the whole entire updated folders/file included install.wim, but none of the integrated updates are included using this method either.
I’ve surfed the internet about putting the updated install.wim into action but haven’t found anything that seems relevant to the issue I’m having. I see no build ISO w/ the DISM command(s).
I’ve tried the GUI DISM tool also but same thing as far as updates go. Using either DSIM or GUI DISM say the updates were successful.
Does the wim file itself update, just the mounted folders, or both? I download the particular update file from microsoft, the msu file, & I've also tried a few cab files but no luck w/ either.
I know wintoolkit & stuff like that is out there but just want to get the hang w/ DISM.
Does anyone know how I put the updated install.wim file into use? I’d seems to me in the first place you just can’t copy updated files & image & consider that to work.
