    Hi TimoMazzika,

    I use GimageX (imageX with a GUI) to create and edit Wim files. It's very easy to use and you can choose compression level (fast/normal/maximum).

    Sorry for my English too :)

    Putting both x86 and x64 indexes on the same install.wim will reduce the size quite a bit as about 50% of the files in the x64 version are duplicates of the ones in the x86 version.

    To make them, you simply export the indexes to a new install.wim using max compression.
    You can use dism, imagex, or gimagex v2
