    I am attempting to make and AIO install disk using the windows 8 x32 install media as my source.
    I am not having any issues making the install.wim (the one I have works great)
    when I convert it to swm(split the file) the installer will work with the first OS, but gives a license error on all other OS images in the swm.
    best I can tell the window 8 x32 install media(boot.wim) has a bug that does not allow it to properly handle split wim images.

    My setup is a win 7 x64 system. I have used the 32 and 64 bit windows 7 and windows 8 version of imagex to split the wim and does not make a difference. I have opened the swm files and verified that they are not damaged.

    Anyone have any experience with this?
    Anyone have a solution to this?
