Unlike SP1 for Windows 7, Internet Explorer 9 is relatively easy to add to an offline image through command line:

Please ignor the line wrap on some of these commands.  It is is bold, it is all one statement.

  1. Download your version OS’s Version of IE 9 HERE.
  2. Create a folder named c:\temp\ie9
  3. Create a folder named c:\temp\mount
  4. Extract the Internet Explorer cab files using the -X switch (like IE9-Windows7-xxx-xxx.exe -x:c:\temp\ie9)
  5. Delete IE9_SUPPORT.CAB

  6. Extract your WIM file from your WDS (Windows Deployment Server) or copyit from the DVD (x:\DVD\SOURCES\INSTALL.WIM) to C:\TEMP\CUSTOMBOOT.WIM (you can call it anything you want… I always call mine customboot.wim… just make the obvious changes below)
  7. Launch DEPLOYMENT TOOLS COMMAND PROMPT (from WAIK, which you can get here)
  8. Type dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:C:\temp\customboot.wim /index:1 /MountDir:C:\temp\mount
  9. Type dism /Image:C:\temp\mount /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\temp\ie9
  10. Type dism /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:C:\temp\mount /commit
  11. Replace the image on your WDS server (or follow the process to update the DVD or delete it all or go have a beer)
