DISM Supported Platforms

The Windows 10 version of Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) is available in Windows 10 for desktop editions (Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Education), Windows Server 2016, and Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE) for Windows 10.

To service Windows 10 images, you’ll need the Windows 10 version of DISM, otherwise the image may become corrupted.

To use the Windows 10 version of DISM onto a previous version of Windows, install the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) from this website, and install the Deployment Tools. Then, start the Deployment and Imaging Tools Environment to run DISM commands.

To use the Windows 10 version of DISM with a previous version of Windows PE, see Install Windows 10 using a previous version of Windows PE.

Note, newer DISM features don’t always work when servicing images of previous versions of Windows. To learn more, see the DISM Reference.

Supported Platforms

The host deployment environment is the operating system where DISM runs. The target image is the image that is being serviced.
