Windows 10 Enterprise Eval - adding windows features

Hi

Im testing the above and come across an issue whereby i couldn't add .net framework 3.5 (includes .net 2.0 and 3.0) from add remove programs.  It was erroring which pointed me in the direction of using DISM to add the component from the original CD, which is a PITA, as i had to copy this over manually to the desktop.

However we will be running our Win10 from a captured image (so most unwanted components removed beforehand), what happens if we need a feature as the contents of the CD wont be on the machine (will it?)?

Thanks

Windows used on-demand if it can. In other words, it pulls features from Microsoft update servers.

If the machine is offline or a firewall blocks this then you'll need to specify the source in the command line and use an original unmodified image.

Sure, the on-demand failed too (maybe due to GPO for WSUS)?

There wasn't any firewall running either..

Well ive added many more components fine.   Does mounting an iso and using dism do anything different i.e. copying source files from CD..?

Various system locations. Winsxs, system32, etc. Don't try to manually copy. Nothing good happens there.

MS offers a GPO to set the path (the DVD contents) to an intranet location: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn482065.aspx
