Trying to set up the preview build for network booting.  However, I cant unarchive install.wim or boot.wim.   Is this intentional?

DISM mounting the WIM works.  Just not accessible via something like 7zip.

mount install.wim and do changes as you like and then dismount it and cleanup images.

you can also extract .wim file using 7-zip.exe
