 Error 5 - Access denied when importing drivers to Windows 7 using DISM Minimize

I recently had a customer who was having issues when importing drivers to an offline Windows 7 image, but only some of the drivers.

The error they got was:

Error - An error occurred. The driver package could not be installed. For more information, check for log files in the \inf folder of the target image.

Error: 5

Access is denied.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

After some troubleshooting we discovered that the driver file they was trying to inject was blocked. After unblocking the file the import worked as expected.
