    Mount install.wim. Mount registry. I do this. Put in path to your mount folder for the %MOUNT%.
    reg load HKLM\TK_HKLM_SOFTWARE "%MOUNT%\Windows\System32\config\software" >nul 2>&1
    reg load HKLM\TK_HKLM_SYSTEM "%MOUNT%\Windows\System32\config\system" >nul 2>&1
    reg load HKLM\TK_HKCU "%MOUNT%\Users\Default\ntuser.dat" >nul 2>&1
    reg load HKLM\TK_HKU_DEFAULT "%MOUNT%\Windows\System32\config\default" >nul 2>&1
    Then copy these commands into notepad, and save as cmd file. Edit themes for your own. Then run as administrator. Make sure you have also copied your themes into the \Windows\Resources\Themes directory of your mounted install.wim.
    Reg.exe add "HKLM\TK_HKLM_SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes" /v "InstallTheme" /t REG_SZ /d "x:\Windows\resources\Themes\Symbiote.theme" /f >nul 2>&1
    Reg.exe add "HKLM\TK_HKLM_SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes" /v "InstallVisualStyle" /t REG_SZ /d "%ResourceDir%\themes\Symbiote\Symbiote.msstyles" /f >nul 2>&1
    Reg.exe add "HKLM\TK_HKLM_SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes" /v "InstallTheme" /t REG_SZ /d "x:\Windows\resources\Themes\Symbiote.theme" /f >nul 2>&1
    Reg.exe add "HKLM\TK_HKLM_SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes" /v "InstallVisualStyle" /t REG_SZ /d "%ResourceDir%\themes\Symbiote\Symbiote.msstyles" /f >nul 2>&1
    Reg.exe add "HKLM\TK_HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes" /v "InstallTheme" /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d "%SystemRoot%\resources\Themes\Symbiote.theme" /f >nul 2>&1
    Reg.exe add "HKLM\TK_HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes" /v "InstallVisualStyle" /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d "%ResourceDir%\themes\Symbiote\Symbiote.msstyles" /f >nul 2>&1
    Unmount registry.
    reg unload HKLM\TK_HKLM_SOFTWARE >nul 2>&1
    reg unload HKLM\TK_HKLM_SYSTEM >nul 2>&1
    reg unload HKLM\TK_HKCU >nul 2>&1
    reg unload HKLM\TK_HKU_DEFAULT >nul 2>&1
    Commit and unmount install.wim. Create ISO, and install.
