    Do you have to format a hard drive that already has an OS on it before
    applying a wim image? If yes, I don't understand how imagex can be a viable
    option. It can take over an hour just to format a hard drive depending how
    large it is.

    If (and only if) you're confident that the hard disk has no failed sectors,
    use the QUICK option.

    FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL=FOOBAR QUICK
