Hello Sumit, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You will need to download WAIK first to get the ImageX.exe file, and then copy the ImageX.exe file to your C: drive. The red warning box at the top of the tutorial will have the download link.

Hello Ankur,

It looks like you will need to use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to take ownership and "Allow" your user account "Full Control" of the file first.

Take Ownership of file - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,

It doesn't pack tightly using commit.

It will keep getting bigger.

Suggest you use Export and select max compression.

You can't export with Windows 7 dism - use command imagex, or much easier to use Gimagex

GImageX - AutoItScript
