DISM - Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool

I found this tool while searching the system32 folder:

DISM.EXE

Code:
 
C:\Users>dism
Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 6.1.7048.0
 
DISM.exe [dism_options] {WIM_command} [<WIM_arguments>]
DISM.exe {/Image:<path_to_offline_image> | /Online} [dism_options]
         {servicing_command} [<servicing_arguments>]
DESCRIPTION:
  DISM enumerates, installs, uninstalls, configures, and updates features
  and packages in Windows images. The commands that are available depend
  on the image being serviced and whether the image is offline or running.
WIM COMMANDS:
  /Get-MountedWimInfo     - Displays information about mounted WIM images.
  /Get-WimInfo            - Displays information about images in a WIM file.
  /Commit-Wim             - Saves changes to a mounted WIM image.
  /Unmount-Wim            - Unmounts a mounted WIM image.
  /Mount-Wim              - Mounts an image from a WIM file.
  /Remount-Wim            - Recovers an orphaned WIM mount directory.
  /Cleanup-Wim            - Deletes resources associated with mounted WIM
                            images that are corrupt.
IMAGE SPECIFICATIONS:
  /Online                 - Targets the running operating system.
  /Image                  - Specifies the path to the root directory of an
                            offline Windows image.
DISM OPTIONS:
  /English                - Displays command line output in English.
  /Format                 - Specifies the report output format.
  /WinDir                 - Specifies the path to the Windows directory.
  /SysDriveDir            - Specifies the path to the system-loader file named
                            BootMgr.
  /LogPath                - Specifies the logfile path.
  /LogLevel               - Specifies the output level shown in the log (1-4).
  /NoRestart              - Suppresses automatic reboots and reboot prompts.
  /Quiet                  - Suppresses all output except for error messages.
  /ScratchDir             - Specifies the path to a scratch directory.
For more information about these DISM options and their arguments, specify an
option immediately before /?.
  Examples:
    DISM.exe /Mount-Wim /?
    DISM.exe /ScratchDir /?
    DISM.exe /Image:C:\test\offline /?
    DISM.exe /Online /?
 
C:\Users>
Usage short example:
DISM /Mount-Wim /WimFile:C:\W7\sources\install.wim /index:1
/MountDir:C:\wimtest\images

Looks really promising for working with WIM image files. Off to test it right now!

Note: I found someone has already started testing in order to create a guide. Will try on my part too.

WinPE 3.0 Boot Environment Complete Tutorial and Script

I have been working with WinPE ever since version 1.0 and using it to deploy images, make backups, etc. Now that version 3.0 is out I have written a full tutorial on how to use it, build the boot environment, using it in a network/computer support department environment, and using GimageX GUI with DISM to deploy and capture images.

You can read my tutorial on DISM here -> Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) WinPE 3.0 Boot Environment - Blog.BrianLeeJackson.com
You can download my WinPE 3.0 Boot Environment Compilation completely free here -> WinPE 3.0 Boot Environment Scripts - Blog.BrianLeeJackson.com

Let me know what you think. Enjoy and happy imaging!
