    What needs to be done so that my setup from bootable MBR USB loads Nvidia driver and displays Full HD resolution during setup process? I have Nvidia GTX 970 connected to Sony 1080p TV.

    boot.wim has 2 indexes.

    Details for image : C:\Users\GnuGeek\Desktop\boot.wim
    Index : 1
    Name : Microsoft Windows PE (x64)
    Description : Microsoft Windows PE (x64)
    Size : 1,443,256,641 bytes
    Index : 2
    Name : Microsoft Windows Setup (x64)

    I do not think that will work (injecting drivers for nVidia). But you could do it like that

    I have always had trouble injecting Nvidia drivers into the install.wim.
    Well the official ones from Nvidia that is.
    In the past I have installed Win 7 ( not done it with 8.1 ).
    Using the windows update the graphics drivers.
    Grab these files and kept them safe.
    These files did inject into the install.wim.

    I have never tried injecting gpu drivers into a boot.wim.
    Never really felt the need. Nor know if it is possible.

    Maybe now a days the newer DISM can inject Nvidia drivers. Not tested that for quite some time.
    I just seem to install them post Windows install, right after running WindowsToolKit.
