How to edit the registry of a captured image.

Vista’s new image-based Windows Image (WIM) file format lets you do some cool things. For example, you can edit the registry of a Vista image you’ve already captured from a reference computer. Here’s how you do this:

Mount the image using a command something like this:
imagex /mountrw install.wim 1 c:mount
Load the registry hive you want to edit using a command something like this (which loads the HKLMsoftware hive):
reg load HKLMtemphive c:mountwindowssystem32configsoftware
Open regedit.exe and edit the keys and values in HKLMtemphive as desired.
Unload the hive you previously loaded using a command like this:
reg unload HKLMtemphive
Unmount the .wim file and commit the changes using a command like this:
imagex /unmount /commit c:mount ')}
