My teammate Matt “Mongo” Hester just posted a pretty cool demo screencast on the process of adding bits (in this case, the currently-in-beta next version of Internet Explorer) into an offline image of Windows Vista. Yes.. “offline” because it’s an installation of Vista that exists in a .wim file. So we’re applying IE 8 as “just another update” into the image. (And although Matt is using the original Vista SP1 media, this could also just as easily have been applied to a sysprepped and ImageX captured image of a Vista SP1 system.)
His excellent screencast and additional resources can be found HERE.
