- How can I install an INF driver to WinPE 3.0 when it is mounted with DISM?
- Once WinPE 3.0 is running, how can I install drivers, using their INF, to an offline system?
The offline system can be Windows 7, Vista OR XP.

Assuming you have your driver files extracted to a local folder on the same system you have your WinPE image mounted with dism:
dism /image:<image path> /add-driver /driver:<driver path>
Technically, you don't have to inject drivers to an existing Windows 7 installation while offline. You can do it directly from the OS while it is running. You just need to change the
/image argument of dism to
/online like so:
dism /online /add-driver /driver:<driver path>
I believe Dism is only valid for Win7, WinPE 3, and Server 2008 R2. I'm not sure what the equivalent utilities are for Vista and XP off hand.
