Dismount-WindowsImage

Dismounts a Windows image from the directory it is mapped to.

Syntax

Parameter Set: DismountDiscard
Dismount-WindowsImage -Discard -Path <String> [-LogLevel <LogLevel> ] [-LogPath <String> ] [-ScratchDirectory <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: DismountSave
Dismount-WindowsImage -Path <String> -Save [-Append] [-CheckIntegrity] [-LogLevel <LogLevel> ] [-LogPath <String> ] [-ScratchDirectory <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Dismount-WindowsImage cmdlet either saves or discards the changes to a Windows image and then dismounts the image.

The Path parameter specifies the location of the mounted Windows image.

The Append parameter specifies the location of an existing .wim file to add the Windows image to when you dismount it instead of overwriting the existing image.

The CheckIntegrity parameter detects and tracks .wim file corruption. CheckIntegrity stops the operation if DISM detects that the .wim file is corrupted when used with the Mount-WindowsImage cmdlet.

The CheckIntegrity and Append parameters do not apply to virtual hard disk (VHD) files.

Parameters

-Append

Specifies the location of an existing .wim file to add the Windows image to when you dismount it instead of overwriting the existing image.

-LogPath<String>

Specifies the full path and file name to log to. If not set, the default is %WINDIR%\Logs\Dism\dism.log.In Windows PE, the default directory is the RAMDISK scratch space which can be as low as 32 MB. The log file will automatically be archived. The archived log file will be saved with .bak appended to the file name and a new log file will be generated. Each time the log file is archived the .bak file will be overwritten. When using a network share that is not joined to a domain, use the net use command together with domain credentials to set access permissions before you set the log path for the DISM log.

-ScratchDirectory<String>

Specifies a temporary directory that will be used when extracting files for use during servicing. The directory must exist locally. If not specified, the \Windows\%Temp% directory will be used, with a subdirectory name of a randomly generated hexadecimal value for each run of DISM. Items in the scratch directory are deleted after each operation. You should not use a network share location as a scratch directory to expand a package (.cab or .msu file) for installation. The directory used for extracting files for temporary usage during servicing should be a local directory.
