Injecting drivers to any Gandalf’s WinPE

Excuse the frog in my voice. It was late at night and I didn’t want to wake everyone. ;)

I replaced UltraIso with a version which allows drag and drop.

Remember to run DismGui with admin rights.

Before you save and un-mount your boot.wim make sure any explorer windows that are open to the mount location are closed, or the un-mounting will fail.

The apps in this video can be downloaded from either One Drive here  or from Mega here

Run with administrator rights.

Ideally any windows explorer and 7zip running apps should be closed. It sometimes needs to kill windows explorer and it may not automatically re-start the taskbar on completion.  If so you can always Ctrl-Alt-Del and open task manager then click on File>Run new task> and enter explorer.exe to restart the taskbar
