Can someone explain why I can't inject the 3Com 3C905C network driver
into my WDS boot WIM? This is what happens why I try:

The WIM is found in W:\boot.
There is an empty directory W:\boot\mount.
The driver is located in W:\Dell\3C905C.
...

W:\boot>imagex /mountrw w:\boot\boot.wim 2 w:\boot\mount

Mounting (RW): [w:\boot\boot.wim, 2] ->
[w:\boot\mount]

Successfully mounted image (RW).

Make sure you are using WAIK 1.1 ... has fixes for driver injection

if it still fails, hen try different versions of the 3c905 drivers...

Thanks, Johan. Updating WAIK was the solution.
