    Change the name and description of a volume image using the Dism


    Using the Dism command in Windows ADK for Windows 10 v1511, it is possible to change the name and description of a volume image saved to a wim file?

    If not, you can tell me the method more proper to do this avoiding the use of the old imageX command?

    Imagex is still the best way for updating the name and description of a captured wim even though some will tell you imagex has been deprecated. Don't believe them....it's still available in the Windows 10 AIK.

    With Imagex you can update the name/edition and description with on easy command:
    imagex /info img_file [img_number or img_name] [new_name/edition] [new_desc]

    e.g. imagex /info Win7CAPTURE.WIM 1 "Win7ENTx86" "Windows 7 Enterprise x86"

    You can accomplish the same thing using DISM but you have to use the Export command which creates an entirely new wim.

    Dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:OldFile.wim /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:NewFile.wim /DestinationName:"Windows 7 Enterprise x86"
