    Hi

    Using the Dism command in Windows ADK for Windows 10 v1511, it is possible to change the name and description of a volume image saved to a wim file?

    If not, you can tell me the method more proper to do this avoiding the use of the old imageX command?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Which is the best way to do this using only the latest version of Windows ADK?

    Thanks

    To my best experience:

    Step 1 - ImageX.exe for Name and Description
    Step 2 - GImageX.exe for DisplayName and DisplayDescription

    For example: Converting Pro Retail to Education Volume
