In case you want to add/remove drivers from *.WIM images, there is a graphical interface for the DISM command line utility written in the .NET. It's called a DISM GUI 4.0 utility and allows you to mount and dismount WIMs, manage drivers, features and packages.
Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) is a command-line tool included in Windows Server 2012/R2 and Windows 8.x that is used to mount and service Windows Imaging Format (WIM) operating system image files. Recently we worked with the DISM within CLI and correcting an issue saying “Failure configuring windows updates reverting changes“. The DISM tool is a very powerfull command line utility.
Quote from Technet:
Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) is a command-line tool used to service Windows® images offline before deployment. You can use it to install, uninstall, configure, and update Windows features, packages, drivers, and international settings. Subsets of the DISM servicing commands are also available for servicing a running operating system.
The DISM GUI 4.0 utility allows working through the GUI and there is quite a few possibilities through different TABs that the tool offers
- It's possible to load/delete drivers from the WIM file
- Add serial number
- Inject file for unattended installation if XML format.
- There is also a possibility to activate roles/features straight in the image so during the default installation those roles/features gets installed directly.
- Plus more…

Newly added features and requirements:
- NET framework 4.0 is required. The previous version required 2.0.

- Added Capture and Apply tabs – This was the single most requested feature. Requires DISM 6.2 or higher
- Added a Read Only option to the mount control tab
- Corrected some spelling errors
