I have two problems. imagex.exe doesn't appear to be in the system32 folder and my network is not starting. Am I missing a step?

copype amd64 c:\winpe
copy c:\winpe\winpe.wim c:\winpe\iso\sources\boot.wim

Mount
dism /mount-wim /wimfile:c:\winpe\winpe.wim /index:1 /mountdir:c:\winpe\mount

Copy over imagex to system32 folder

Add in a driver

c:\winpe>dism /image:C:\winpe\mount /add-driver:C:\Dell\Drivers\N0F78\WINDOWS7-x
64\E1c62x64.inf

dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:c:\winpe\mount\ /commit
copy c:\winpe\winpe.wim c:\winpe\iso\sources\boot.wim /y
oscdimg -n -bc:\winpe\etfsboot.com c:\winpe\iso c:\winpe\winpe.iso

Boot the ISO.. imagex doesn't appear in the system32 folder and no network. I can manually load the network driver using drvload but not what I want to do particularly.

What am I doing wrong?

ImageX is part of the Window AIK - you can get that here:

If you have WAIK installed, you'll find imagex.exe in "\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\". If you need it in the \System32\ folder, you'll have to copy it from there to that folder first.

Or if you still have the WAIK .iso - it's in Neutral.cab as F1_imagex or F3_imagex (expand for 32/64 bit version of imagex.exe) :)
