    So, I have this install.wim which I use with DISM to install windows 8.

    I boot via USB in windows pe and use dism to install windows for me.

    can I make this USB so that when I boot via it, it automatically start the installation ?

    anything like this possible ?

    IDK much about using Windows PE but I know you can do it- I recently was sent a USB drive with Windows PE on it and was to use it to format a Kiosk at bestbuy. When booting to the USB drive it popped up a command prompt asking for me to press enter and once I did, the process began and once done, it restarted and bam, Windows 7 was installed.

    Just create an Batch file, place them in startup of WinPE and that should just work (if the commands in your Batch file are correct!)! Peace of Cake!:D

    Been traveling a lot lately. Didn't get the time. Will try this coming week and will update the thread hopefully.
