WIE image building not working

  • So, since we are using mostly Windows machines, I've started to set up another server with WIE only, but I have problems.
    After installation of TOEMS and configuration by steps included, on fresh installation of Windows 10 22h2 64 bit, I've started Building windows environment. Followed the tutorial, enter all relevant information in cmd file, but build crashes at one point, for x86 images:

    I'm left only with x64 images. Can't recreate boot files or anything because the files are missing, even after I transferred all files to that tftp boot folder, "merging" them.
    What is wrong? I'm uploading screenshot, too.

    It is not a problem reinstalling whole system if needed, as it is done in 15 minutes.

  • WinPE no longer supports x86 as of ADK version 22H2. You just need to remove the following lines from your ToemsPE-Build.cmd file so that only the 64 bit version is created.

    set PLATFORM=x86
    set Pass=2
    call .\Scripts\MakePE.cmd
    if /I %CreateISO% EQU true call .\Scripts\SuperISO.cmd

  • OK, I will at monday, when on my work. Will there be any problems with creating boot images within web GUI?

    Also, is there any tutorial about setting up WIE imaging environment? I've setup server up until checking that number that has to be 60, linux environment is already set up, just have to select proper boot images, but is WIE just creating winPE images, placing them into tftpboot folder and selecting them in server?

  • That's all there is to it. The only docs are here.

    Thank you. It works now.
