    I have created a WINPE boot disk for Windows Deployment services which works as we would like. When I map to the backup server and run TrueimageCmd.exe or TrueimageCmdDos.exe, nothing happens. Do I need to install files locally? Ideally, I would like create a script that takes care of images automatically.

    I notice the Acronis WINPE build process works by modify the existing *.WIM image that I created. Are there instruction that will allow me to modify my *WIm Image manually?

    The only instuctions for modifying your wim image come in the doc files supplied by Microsoft with WinPE. Because it is so difficult is the reason why the VistaPE project was created using WinBuilder. You may want to check out the VistaPE Guide and the Acronis scripts I offer on my website. My True Image scripts offer much more functionality than the Acronis WinPE ISO process provides. See my signature below.
