ADK 1703 Image Mount workaround

There has been alot of chatter around the new ADK for Windows 10 1703. Microsoft somehow signed a mountdriver with a bad certificate. This means mount operations fail. All around deployment father Michel Niehaus has found a workaround and you can read the full post from him here https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/mniehaus/2017/05/16/quick-workaround-for-adk-1703-issue/

The short story is that you need to modify a registry value to use the built-in driver instead. So if you don’t want to read the full story change the following registry value

Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WIMMount
Key: ImagePath

Set the value to
system32\drivers\winmount.sys

Then you can mount images again!

Note: There are people saying you can turn of SecureBoot to make it work and while this is true. You should not turn SecureBoot off.

Note 2: Microsoft is working on a fix for the ADK.
