Nerd Thoughts.

Did you ever wonder how the Rebels could afford all those Incom T-65s? I mean why was the REBELLION the only one using X-Wings? Its not like in other political uprisings you see the Guerillas go out and buy brand new military hardware. Its usually just stuff appropriated from the current regime. Presumably at the time of "A New Hope" the T-65 was a new fighter. So what stopped the Empire from simply shutting Incom down. If there was an uprising in the US, I don't think we could just walk on over to Northrop Grumman (Sorry, Lockheed Martin) and open a line of credit for a few hundred F-16s before the government shut them down.

I think they were supported by Corellia, and by the Organa royal family of Alderraan. I'm sure they had off-world investments, and Leia was able to keep those funds flowing in for the rebels.

You mount the boot.wim file using imagex (imagex /mountrw \\server\directory\boot.wim 1 c:\mountpoint)

Once its mounted you use a program called PEimg (peimg /inf=c:\directory\driverfiles\*.inf c:\mountpoint)

This adds the driver to the mounted image

Then, you commit your changes (imagex /unmount /commit c:\mountpoint)

Then you update your source and reboot.. viola.
