    Hello,

    Could some explain to me what is the difference between cdimage and oscdimg? And why would I want to use one over the other? I know that older microsoft oses were built using older versions of oscdimg/cdimage but wouldn't the newest one 2.56 work just as well on all windows images?

    Thank you!

    Yes, the v 2.56 of oscdimg/cdimage is the same version and cdimage is the same at the file oscdimg renamed.

    As I recall oscdimg came with the newer ADK's and has a slightly different command line.
    Both work the same & it doesn't matter which you use...

    Thanks guys, one more thing I'd like to ask:
    In ADK, oscdimg is available as x64 and x86. Does it matter if I use oscdimg x86 to build a x64 image?
