dism++ wants you to browse to a folder/directory containing DRIVER files.

To add UPDATES ( msu or cab - sometimes also called packages ) select UPDATES in dism++ left pane


After you have added the update Windows6.1-KB3133977-x64.msu, the next thing is to run bcdboot command.
From command prompt:
bcdboot c:\windows

I follow all instructions as stated but still no luck.
Strangely, when all of my hard drives are connected, my operating system drive is labeled D:
When I unplug my other drives, it reverts to being labeled C:.

If it would be best to do a new and clean install, which guide should I follow that I get a nice install on my Samsung SSD and which guide would show me best settings so as not to get these updates that screw up my pc.

It is normal. Winpe will enumerate whatever drives it finds. By default it uses X letter as alias for itself and starts allocating from letter C for other drives. So that will vary depending on what you have plugged in.

Whatever letter winpe gives to your windows partition is the one you should point commands at.


I am not sure why you posted a screen shot of dism++ drivers window again. Are you trying to add drivers?

I have posted the screenshot again to see if this is what I should be seeing when I add the driver. As instructed, I directed dism++ to the folder that contains the driver and this message is what popped up. Does it mean the driver installed correctly?
I then ran bcdboot from the command prompt.

Unfortunately, my pc still shows the same error when I try to restart. Not sure what I'm doing wrong but do appreciate your time trying to help me.

Arghhh: "Updates", NOT Driver...

There is an install tutorial on this site - in th tutorials section.


Best way to install updates without telemetry and other junk is to run Simplix pack.

It is not a driver. It is an update.

I might have written driver in an earlier post in a fit of absent mindedness.

You can not install it using the driver install function - because it is not a driver.

You need to click Updates in dism++ left pane, then click Add.

Then after it tells you the update has installed - run bcdboot command

Right, I will get the "I'm Stupid" t-shirt printed tomorrow.

I kept trying to add driver, not update.
All is working now. Thank you so much for your patience SIW2.

I will use Simplix pack to perform any updates in the future, or would I be better off not updating?

I'm pretty sure you always said "Updates", but for some dumb reason I got fixated on drivers. Totally my fault and thank you once again. Greatly appreciate your help.
