I created a custom script to mount a sysprepped Windows 7 .wim image to a directory so I can edit a specific file in the image and then unmount it. The script seems to work just fine; however, each time I try to use it, I seem to be getting some sort of error about the image, such as:

  • The image is supposedly damaged or corrupted
  • The image mounts but nothing appears in the directory

Is it possible to mount an sysprepped Windows 7 .wim image into a directory using DSIM?

Yes, you can. The TechNet article Mount and Modify an Image shows how this is accomplished. You may also find useful information in the TechNet article DISM Overview (Deployment Image Servicing and Management) to help with this. Sysprep should have no bearing on this issue.

Hope this helps,
