    Apply Windows 10 Enterprise image via USB


    I have taken an image using DISM and it is in the .wim format. I want to apply it to a tablet using a usb stick, it has a UEFI Bios.

    in the past with windows 7 and I have been able to create a bootable usb drive by using Windows 7 USB DVD tool to create the .wim from .iso then copy the boot files onto the stick, I was then able to boot to the usb stick and a command prompt appeared where I used imagex commands to apply it.

    can this be done with Windows 10 Enterprise?

    thanks

    Yes it can, but if you can use the Windows 7 USB you already have, you can just replace the Windows 7 Wim with the image you have made with Dism. AFAIK, the technology hasn't changed, just the WAIK/ADK tools have been updated to match their parent OS versions.

    Unless you have an Enterprise license, your USB will be a time limited evaluation, but it is possible to create this within Windows 10 Pro, using the Windows-to-Go tool, found in Control panel (PWCREATOR.EXE)

    Thanks for your reply

    this still does not work. I am trying to image a surface pro 4 and a dell venue 11 pro, both have a uefi bios and when I select the usb drive to boot from it goes straight into normal boot and logs in to windows. How do I get the command prompt to appear so that I can enter in my command line?

    thanks
