how to add win pe wim to installation wim?

I have two iso files.
The installation iso file has two menus: 1. windows repair and 6-in-1 installation of windows 7.
And another iso file is windows 7 x86 pe which is fastest I've met.

For adding pe to installtion wim, I followed RMPrepUSB's tutorial - 16 - How to boot to different WinPE versions using a single boot.wim that contains multiple images at http://www.rmprepusb...multi_boot-wim.

1. downloaded "wimpatched" file and move to usb's root.
2. downloaded "checkwim" - JFX's tool file - and move to "d:\usb_multiwim\tool" with imagex and gimagex.
3. wim work

1) 1st try
a) copy "boot.wim" from windows 7 installation disc to "d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim"
B) apply "boot.wim" from win7 x86 pe iso to "d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7pe"
c) append d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7pe d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim\boot.wim
d) copy d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim\boot.wim to usb:\sources
e) boot any menus to windows installation screen.

2) 2nd try
a) copy "boot.wim" from win7 x86 pe iso to "d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7pe"
B) windows 7 installation disc's wim file has two wims by checkwim.

title Boot image 1 in boot.wim "Microsoft Windows PE (x64)"
map --mem /wimpatched (rd)
write --offset=0x654C4 (rd)+1 \x68\x0E\x09\x00
write --offset=0x654CC (rd)+1 \x95\x6D\xA3\x09
write --offset=0x654D4 (rd)+1 \x28\x67\x2B\x00
write --offset=0x654DC (rd)+1 \x01\x00\x00\x00
chainloader (rd)+1
root ()

title Boot image 2 in boot.wim "Microsoft Windows Setup (x64)"
map --mem /wimpatched (rd)
write --offset=0x654C4 (rd)+1 \x06\xB8\x09\x00
write --offset=0x654CC (rd)+1 \xAF\x5D\xC9\x0A
write --offset=0x654D4 (rd)+1 \x60\x36\x2F\x00
write --offset=0x654DC (rd)+1 \x02\x00\x00\x00
chainloader (rd)+1
root ()



apply "boot.wim" from windows 7 installation disc to "d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim"


				imagex /apply d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim\boot.wim 1 d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim\1

				imagex /apply d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim\boot.wim 2 d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim\2


c) append wims to win7pe wim

			imagex /append imagex /apply d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim\boot.wim 1 d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim\1 d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7pe\boot.wim

			imagex /append imagex /apply d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim\boot.wim 1 d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7install_wim\2 d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7pe\boot.wim


d) copy d:\usb_multiwim\wims\win7pe\boot.wim to usb:\sources
e) boot any menus to windows installation screen.

Please let me know what's wrong and how to put these three wim files to my usb.

Thanks in advance.

What are you trying to achieve?
Your link is bad (has a . on the end) http://www.rmprepusb.../multi_boot-wim

The ImageX syntax is
imagex /append image_path image_file {"description"} {/boot | /check | /config configuration_file.ini | /scroll | /verify}

There should be no /apply???

I recommend always use /check /verify?

Why do you talk about x86 and then have x64 menu
if you want to install different versions of win7,vista,server 2k8R2 then see tutorial #43.

Thanks for your kindness.

1. I want to make these menu.

1) installation windows 7 x64
2) windows 7 x64 recovery
- These are the menus at 6-in-1 installation disc of windows 7 which I got from some blog. Actually there is one more menu - windows 7 x86 recovery.
3) windows 7 pe
- this is a menu at windows 7 pe which I got different blog. This pe starts really small windows 7 at usb.

or
1) installation windows 7 x64
2) windows 7 pe

2. Yes I got something wrong when paste this post. About the imagex syntax, I just followed the tutorial.

Imagex /apply c:win7pe64boot.wim 1 c:multipe2
Imagex /append c:multipe2 c:boot.wim "your description goes here"

As you showed imagex syntax, I would try this command.

imagex /append d:usb_multiwimwimswin7install_wim1 d:usb_multiwimwimswin7peboot.wim {"description"} /boot /check /verify

3. About "tutorial #43", I am not interesting at several windows. What I want is only put these two wim files into my usb with menus.

4. Another question is cmd file. Can I make a one cmd file with these "apply" and "append" commands just listing commands, just like this.

Imagex /apply c:win7pe64boot.wim 1 c:multipe2
Imagex /append c:multipe2 c:boot.wim "your description goes here"
Imagex /apply c:visatpe64boot.wim 1 c:multipe3
Imagex /append c:multipe3 c:boot.wim "your description goes here"
Imagex /apply c:win7peboot.wim 1 c:multipe4
Imagex /append c:multipe4 c:boot.wim "your description goes here"

So you want us to tell you how to put a 6-in-1 which you got from 'some blog' without us knowing how it was prepared?
Tutorial #43 allows you to install and recover Win 7 x64. You don't have to add Win 7 x86 or other OS's if you don't want to!
To add WinPE, just add the files to the USB stick and create a grub4dos menu item to boot to /bootmgr or add the WinPE ISO file.

Please be understood I don't know how 6-in-1 was prepared. I found only the iso file. Thus I put into usb with rmprepusb. So I used two usbs - installation usb and pe usb - so long time whenever I re-install windows 7 or repairs.

3 days ago I visited rmpreusb site and found "tutorial #16".

And I am studying multipe leopard, thus I hope I would make my usb with these menus. But at this time I have to read so many article and documents understanding hot to use leopard.

And I tried "imagex /append d:usb_multiwimwimswin7install_wim1 d:usb_multiwimwimswin7peboot.wim {"description"} /boot /check /verify", but still "pe" menu boot windows 7 installtion.

Now I'll try "tutorial #43" for putting pe menu.
