DataImage

DataImage specifies a data image to install. You can add additional data on top of a Windows operating system image, by using a data image. Data images can include applications, device drivers, and other configuration files. You can create a data image, by using ImageX.

You should never use a data image to overwrite Windows system data. Use data images only to add files.

There can be more than one data image. The OSImage is installed before any data images.
