Windows 7: Replace install.wim file on USB Drive

Replace install.wim file on USB Drive

Hi,

I have a bootable USB drive with Windows 7 Enterprise x64 on it which we use to setup our office computers.

Our IT Team from HQ sent us an updated install.wim file and told us to replace the existing install.wim file on the usb drive with the update install.wim file. The USB drive booted up ok but it complained that the \sources\install.wim file is not found even though it is on the USB drive.

Please advice the proper method of replacing the install.wim file on the usb drive.

Thank you.
