    I have WINPE.WIM (x86) from the latest WAIK... In addition, I have ImageX.exe... I don't have the WAIK nor I wish to download it...

    Can I create a Win PE CD out of the WINPE.WIM without needing the WAIK?

    Please let me know if I can...

    I think that you would be much better in downloading the WAIK, as you need a number of files from it, these are the files that it copies ...
    Code:

        C:\PE\winpe_x86

       C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\..\x86
    
    
    C:\PE\winpe_x86>
    So unless you can obtain all the files it requires than you will have some time consuming fun, go for the download..

    This is my bat file that i use to create my own Windows PE dvd...
    Code:
    echo.
    
    RD /s/q C:\PE\winpe_x86
    cd "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\"
    call copype.cmd x86 C:\PE\winpe_x86
    
    copy c:\PE\winpe_x86\winpe.wim c:\PE\winpe_x86\ISO\Sources\boot.wim
    
    cd "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\Servicing"
    Dism /mount-Wim /WimFile:C:\PE\winpe_x86\ISO\Sources\boot.wim /index:1 /MountDir:C:\PE\winpe_x86\mount
    
    Copy D:\MakePE3.1\Windows\System32\*.* C:\PE\Winpe_x86\Mount\Windows\System32\
    Copy D:\MakePE3.1\Icon\*.* C:\PE\Winpe_x86\ISO\
    xcopy /e D:\MakePE3.1\TOOLS\*.* C:\PE\Winpe_x86\Mount\TOOLS\
    xcopy /e D:\MakePE3.1\CUSTOM\*.* C:\PE\Winpe_x86\Mount\CUSTOM\
    xcopy /e D:\MakePE3.1\Windows\Shell\*.* C:\PE\Winpe_x86\Mount\Windows\Shell\
    
    
    cd "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\Servicing"
    Dism /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:C:\PE\winpe_x86\mount /Commit 
    
    :: --------------------

    echo.
    echo Creating ISO...
    cd D:\MakePE3.1\
    oscdimg -n -bc:\PE\winpe_x86\etfsboot.com c:\PE\winpe_x86\ISO c:\PE\winpe_x86\Boot_Image.iso
    
    echo.
    echo ==============================================================================
