    Windows PE. WAIK. Sysprep. WIM images. DISM. Uh, what?

    I'm usually pretty savvy about all things Windows, but when it comes to creating my own bootable WinPE DVD I'm stumped. Can't seem to find any tutorials (here or via Google) that start at the beginning and explain the whole concept before diving into step-by-step guides I can't make much sense of.

    Can someone give me some pointers? Willing to read and learn, not afraid of too much information (I'm more afraid of not enough, LOL). Thanks in advance. :)

    (Should add I'm running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit with SP1 on both my computers.)

    Thanks, but see, that's the snag right there. Is there some user's guide for the WAIK? I did download and install it but now I have no idea what's next and how everything works together. I really need a tutorial or something...
