    Hello All

    I have 5 Iso

    1- Windows 8.1 x86 Enterprise Custom
    ( i installed windows 8.1 enterprise and then install my favorite programs and then sysprep it and made Install.WIM from it and replace this custom install.wim with original install.wim of windows 8.1 enterprise dvd iso )

    the command that i used to create my custom wim file :

    imagex /capture C: d:\images\installcaptured.wim "Windows 8.1 x64"



    and imagex /info on my custom wim file for windows 8.1 x64

    has my wim file any error ?

    The Edition flag is missing
    You have to issue this command on the new wim so it can be recognized in setup:
    Code:
    imagex /flags "Enterprise" /info d:\images\installcaptured.wim 1 "Windows 8.1 x64" "Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64"

    Not sure, but here is how I made my single image ISO. It works from 8.1 host machine with powershell 4.0.

    Code:
    Export-WindowsImage -SourceImagePath Z:\Shared\Windows_Server_2012_R2_ISO\sources\install.wim -SourceIndex 4 -DestinationImagePath Z:\Shared\install.wim -DestinationName "Windows Server 2012 R2 SERVERDATACENTER"
    
    #additional syntax
    
    Get-Help Export-WindowsImage -Full
    
    #
    I would export all 5 iso's into one master.iso

    Exported existing image maintain its edition flag
    whereas newly captured image needs imagex to set the flag
