Windows 7: Maybe I'm missing something...

Maybe I'm missing something...

...but I'm trying to figure out how to install the WAIK so I can make my combined Windows 7 SP1 flash drive. I downloaded the .iso file from the link given in the tutorial, yet I see no way of installing the actual WAIK.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...displaylang=en

That downloads a .iso that I have burned to a disc (and extracted, for that matter), yet I don't see the StartCD.exe program that is supposed to kick off the WAIK install. What gives? Here's the disc I downloaded:

Hello mate,

You might see if this may work better for you instead. It worked great for me, and no need to install WAIK.

Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 into a Installation DVD or ISO File

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I'll use that as a last resort, but I want to reuse the same process as I did with the pre-SP1 discs. I'm just not understanding why all the installation instructions mention a StartCD.exe file that isn't present on the 1.2 GB .iso I downloaded, yet I can find no other WAIK. Even the TechNET .iso of WAIK is what I have downloaded....with no luck.

I'm downloading the WAIK version from within TechNet's subscription area now, just for laughs.

The one I have saved to my flash drive has the StartCD.

I downloaded it from Microsoft, but didn't save the web page to my favorites, so I can't tell you what web page I got it from. I also don't remember what program I used to extract it. It would have likely been Ultra.ISO or 7Zip.

I extracted mine using UltraISO. My structure looks nothing like what you have. I'm wondering if the links in the Universal Disc tutorial are pointing to the wrong discs (mine is labeled supplement).

Oops, one thing I neglected to mention is mine is the original pre SP1 WAIK. I just haven't got around to looking for the SP1 version as of yet. That may be why yours is different.

I did a search and downloaded the SP1 version of the WAIK. The file structure looks identical to your original screen shoot. I guess you actually have to burn the DVD to install it? It does say that on the download page but usually you can extract the files and install from there. I has hoping I could go into the AMD64 folder and find something runnable in there but that didn't work either? I don't have a blank DVD to burn to try it either.

I had to install it using a disk.

Same thing. I downloaded it right from my TechNet account, and it is the exact same disc structure.

My screenshot above is from the actual burned DVD. I burned it using Nero. I don't get it.

Try ImgBurn at a very slow speed with a verify.
