Take Inventory of an Image or Component

Published: October 22, 2009

Updated: October 22, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2

noteNote
This content applies to Windows 7. For Windows 8 content, see Windows Deployment with the Windows ADK.

You can take an inventory of what is included in your Windows® image by using Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) servicing commands.

This topic describes how to get the following information about an image or component.

Get Windows Image Information

You can use Windows image (WIM) commands to list the information about images within a .wim file, about a specific .wim file, and about mounted .wim files. This information can help you identify mount locations, image names, or verify the architecture of the image you are mounting.

For more information about WIM Commands available in DISM, see Deployment Image Servicing and Management Command-Line Options.

To list images contained in a .wim file

You can gather information about all of the images within a Windows Image (.wim) file by using the/Get-WimInfo servicing command in DISM. You can also gather information about a specific .wim file, such as operating system, architecture, settings, and other information contained in the WIM metadata.

  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Windows OPK (or Windows AIK), right-click the Deployment Tools Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

  2. To list information about all of the images in a .wim file, at the elevated command prompt, type:

    DISM /Get-WIMInfo /WimFile:C:\test\images\install.wim
    
    When used with the /Index or /Name options, more detailed information about the specified image is displayed.

The report that is generated includes the following information.

 

Field Description Example

Index

The index value of the image in the .wim file.

1

Name

The Windows edition name of the image in the .wim file.

Windows 7 HOMEBASIC

Description

The description of the image in the .wim file.

Windows 7 HOMEBASIC

Size

The size of the image.

8,045,951,502 bytes

To list mounted images

You can identify the images that are currently mounted on your computer, and you can list information about the mounted image such as read/write permissions, mount location, mounted file path, and mounted image index by using the /Get-MountedWimInfo servicing command.

  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Windows OPK (or Windows AIK), right-click the Deployment Tools Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

  2. At the elevated command prompt, type:

    Dism /Get-MountedWIMInfo 
    

The report that is generated includes the following information.

 

Field Description Example

Mount Dir

The location where the image is mounted.

C:\Test\Mount

Image File

The full path to the .wim file.

C:\Test\Images\install.wim

Image Index

The index number of the mounted image within the .wim file.

1

Mounted Read/Write

Yes if the mounted image allows both read and write access, No if the mounted image allows read-only access.

Yes

Status

The mount status of the image. The possible values include:

OK: The image is mounted. There are no problems.

Needs Remount: The image needs to be remounted. This can be caused by rebooting the host system while the image is mounted.

Invalid: the image is in an invalid state. You might need to use /Cleanup-Wim on the image.

OK

Get Windows PE Information

You can mount a Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) image for servicing in the same way you would any Windows image. There are also Windows PE servicing commands that are specific to a Windows PE image. These commands can be used to list Windows PE settings such as scratchspace, targetpath, and profiling information. For more information about Windows PE servicing commands available in DISM, see Windows PE Servicing Command-Line Options.

To list all settings in the mounted Windows PE image.

You can display a list of all of the Windows PE settings in the mounted Windows PE image, including current profiling state, scratch space settings, and target path settings in one DISM command. For more information about additional /Get commands for a Windows PE image, see Windows PE Servicing Command-Line Options.

  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Windows OPK (or Windows AIK), right-click the Deployment Tools Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

  2. To list information about all of the Windows PE settings in the mounted Windows PE image, at the elevated command prompt, type:

    Dism /image:C:\test\offline /Get-PESettings
    

The report that is generated includes the following information.

 

Field Description Example

Get Driver Information

The driver-servicing commands can be used to enumerate driver packages in the driver store based on their .inf files. You can use the/Get commands to display information about all driver packages, only third-party driver packages in an image, or information about a specific driver package.

For more information about driver-servicing commands available in DISM, see Driver Servicing Command-Line Options.

  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Windows OPK (or Windows AIK), right-click the Deployment Tools Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

  2. Use one of the following commands to list information about all of the driver packages in an offline Windows image:

    Dism /image:C:\test\offline /Get-Drivers
    
    Dism /image:C:\test\offline /Get-Drivers /all
    
    For a running operating system, type one of the following commands:
