    This is how I do it.

    Directly in C I make a folder called DISM

    In that folder I make more folders

    mount, install.wim, boot.wim and drivers

    So
    C\DISM\mount
    +
    C\DISM\install.wim
    +
    C\DISM\boot.wim
    +
    C\DISM\drivers


    Place you boot.wim and install.wim in their respective folders
    Place the drivers in the "drivers" folder

    This will add drivers into the boot.wim indexes 1 and 2
    This will add drivers to your install.wim
    Hope this helps

    While your mounting install.wim you can add it to winre.wim. That is the best place for it anyway...

    Check all the spellings on the codes. i.e make sure "mount" is spelt the same throughout plus all the other folder names too.

    I will look later at my codes. I may have picked up the wrong ones by mistake.
    I have quite a few.

    Right now half sat and half layed on the couch. "Man Flu" has grabbed me by the youknow whats.

    Its prboably my codes. Sorry.

    Maybe this is not possible on a Windows Professional ?

    is boot.wim in a folder called boot.wim or have you typed out boot.wim twice by mistake?

    Exactly that's your problem.
    Either you name it by mistake or you actually have a sub-folder, if the latter then rename it to bootwim, without the dot "." Dism can't handle that path.

    I am tending to disagree. DISM can actually handle the file structure.

    I have been going over my folder structure and codes.

    I stand by my folder structure

    C\DISM\install.wim
    C\DISM\boot.wim
    C\DISM\mount
    C\DISM\drivers
    C\DISM\updates

    As said though in my haste I picked up the wrong codes. I have many of which I have used and have not been successful but still kept for reference.

    I have tested the following codes and they are working.

    Intergrate Drivers Into boot.wim Index 1 and Index 2
    Integrate Drivers
    Integrate Updates
    Mount install.wim Then Pause
    Unmount install.wim COMMIT
    Unmount install.wim DISCARD
    Copy the codes into notepad and save as ".cmd" files.
    Then place these into the C\DISM folder and right click, run as admin.

    As said. Just tested these and they are working.

    I have a few more codes I use but there will be loads more I have never used. Only bothered getting the ones I have needed.

    Edit : Would like to point out one fact though. The index of the install.wim file is #1 for me. I always remove all index's but the Ultimate, well In Windows 7 any ways.
