I want to know files:

*.wim
*.sdi

Where are they on S, D, or even C?

And ask someone else with your brand/model laptop to give "bcdedit/enum all" output

D:\ImageLayout\WIMFiles folder exists? It has a few or maybe a lot of SPL_Vista*.swm files? They are maybe 99% of partition capacity?

Post d:\boot\bcd (file with no extension) please.
