Since SP1 was installed I’ve been unable to update the boot.wim file to the distribution point.

Every time I try to update I get the error:

  • Failed to inject a ConfigMgr driver into the mounted WIM file

So to get around the issue I decided it was time to create a new boot.wim file and upload.

To do this start Deployment Tools Command Line as Administrator.

In this instance I was creating a x64 boot.wim and the command to run for this was COPYPE.CMD amd64 c:\WINPE64\

BootWim02

Here are all the commands for the different architectures:

COPYPE.CMD x86 c:\WINPE86\
COPYPE.CMD amd64 c:\WINPE64\
COPYPE.CMD arm c:\WINPEARM\

Execute the command.

Once run, navigate to the c:\WINPE64\media\sources folder and copy the boot.wim to a share for use with SCCM.

BootWim04

In the SCCM console go to the Software Library workspace. Open Operating Systems>Boot Images. Right click and choose ‘Add Boot Image’.

BootWim05

Select the location of the boot.wim file and click Next.

BootWim06

Enter a name for the boot image and click Next. Continue through the wizard to completion.

BootWim07

Once complete distribute the boot image to a DP.

BootWim08

Ensure you select ‘Deploy this boot image from the PXE enable distribution point’ from the boot image properties.
