WinPE error: oiedlg.dll was not found – BGInfo64.exe

I pointed to the optional items you can have in your Boot Media, and sent a screenshot of the ones I have installed, which I’d recommend everyone have for OSD:

Optional Components that I recommend

I was able to reproduce the issue by having Boot Media with without HTA Support. So there you have it. If you get that error in WinPE, make sure you have HTML (WinPE-HTA) support added.
