I am not sure I understand what's going on with your command usage.
x:\e:\imagex.exe /apply f:\capturedimage.wim 1 c:
If you are booted into your PE environment I don't believe you need to reference back to the disk you booted from. When you open the command prompt you should be sitting at

Can you try just typing the command as follows.
imagex.exe /apply f:\capturedimage.wim 1 c:
Here is some good documentation.
