Hi,

I have a few images stored in my WDS.
The images are now getting old & need to keep them updated.

After a bit of googling, I can see people are mentioning the DISM and the AIK/ADK

I would like to use one only, do I have to use both?

Which one is the best? (& why)

Thanks

Manually keeping an image up to date is painful. It is a little insane, actually.

Download MDT 2013 and, if you don't use it for deployment, at *least* use it to create your reference images. Then making an updated image is literally a three-click affair and can be done on a very regular basis. I refresh mine quarterly with ease. The MDT documentation is very thorough on creating reference images, and they can be dropped right into WDS.

Like I said, the documentation really inkwell organized and thorough. It is what I recommend. It is as good as any tutorial I've seen on the subject.
