I want to capture my Windows 8.0 image to a custom install.wim file
and use it in setting up my own custom "factory recovery" partition.
Pls look at my files as per attached.
Want am I doing wrong?
Excuse me, what is an advantage of custom factory recovery over a traditional full system backup? For me, backup is more easy and convenient way; it allows to keep a number of copies unlike a single recovery image, which needs the regular update of wim file. The only bonus is that factory recovery is independent operation while restoration of backup needs an external boot (like a flash drive). Maybe I missed something?
I need all my current windows settings/updates etc..captured to new WIM file, then replace the WIM in my installation media.
But, alas I can find no tutorial in this vast Web of how to do it without some complex stuff like another OS or use WinPE.
Has any body done this on Win8 ?
Decided just to clone my disk to portable usb HDD with recovery file on seperate Usb.
