In the previous article, we have seen how to benefit from the new wimboot feature of MS Windows 8.1 : install, capture with wimboot (from winpe), restore with wimboot (from winpe).

CloneDisk now also support wimboot (thru wimgapi.dll) for those who prefer a GUI rather than the DISM command line.

Capturing with the wimboot flag will make it so that the wim file will use a XPRESS chunk size of 4096 (vs 32768) and the image will have the extra flag wimboot.

Some facts :

-My clean install is around 13 GB.

-My wim file is around 7 GB.

-My « wimboot » install occupies « only » 3.5 GB  on drive C. (of which near 3 gigs are taken by hyberfil.sys, pagefile.sys, swapfile.sys)

Discuss it here.
