Slip streaming Updates for W7 and Office 2010 -- can it be done.

Hi everybody
If you've ever re-installed Windows 7 recently (or office 2010) there's a myriad of updates that can take a long time (I think around 1 GB of downloads if you include Office).

Is it possible like we did with XP to "Slipstream" the Service packs and updates into Windows 7 and an Office install media.

Would be useful - but haven't seen any mention of this.

Office 2010 sp1 is a separate download and Windows 7 retail doesn't always have SP1 included.

Any ideas folks.

Cheers
jimbo

You can slipstream the Service Pack into Windows 7, but I was unable to find a way to add the 70 or so updates for Windows 7 since SP1. I spent some time researching it.

This would be a huge time saver if it was possible. If you find anything positive, please post it!

Those look promising. Have you tried them yourself?

I've used WUD in the past and it worked alright. I would have to assume that it still works for Windows7. I'll give it a shot tomorrow and will let you know the results.

What i do at work is to install Windows 7, a few apps and keep it patched. I then run sysprep /generalize. From there, I use imagex to create a new install.wim file. I then put this install.wim onto my installable USB and now when I install my OS, I get my updates, config changes and some 3rd party apps that I always want.

I've downloaded it, but I haven't tried it out yet.

Do you know of any sensible tutorials about how to do this?
Being a CLI operation it could easily "end in tears".

Here is how I do the process.

I google for "Windows 7 USB Downloader Tool". I download this freebie and install it. From here, I point it to an .iso of my Windows 7 installer and it makes a bootable USB key that I can use to install Windows 7. More details here if you need them: Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool Creates and Makes Bootable DVD Disc or USB Flash/Hard Drive from ISO Image « My Digital Life

Next, I use that USB key to install Windows 7 on my host system. Install all other apps, run updates, more or less get it ready to be "imaged"

Next, you have to download and install the Microsoft WAIK (it's free, but 1.7GB download). Download: Windows® AIK for Windows® 7 - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details. Download and install this.

Open admin command prompt
cd \program files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools
copype x86 C:\winpe (for x86) copype amd64 C:\winpe (for 64bit)
imagex /mountrw C:\winpe\winpe.wim 1 C:\winpe\mount
copy C:\program files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\imagex.exe C:\winpe\mount\windows\system32 (or switch to amd64 for 64bit)

Create C:\winpe\mount\windows\system32\wimscript.ini containing following
Code:
[ExclusionList]
ntfs.log
hiberfil.sys
pagefile.sys
"System Volume Information"
RECYCLER
Windows\CSC
[CompressionExclusionList]
*.mp3
*.zip
*.cab
\WINDOWS\inf\*.pnf
imagex /unmount /commit C:\winpe\mount
copy C:\winpe\winpe.wim C:\winpe\iso\sources\boot.wim
oscdimg -n -h -bc:\winpe\etfsboot.com C:\winpe\iso C:\winpe\winpe.iso

At this point, you have an ISO in C:\winpe\winpe.iso. Burn this as you will boot from it soon.


SYSPREP the host computer (Be sure you are on a system you can do this on. This should not be on your everyday machine as it will unactivate your copy..which is probably not what you are wanting to do.

change to C:\windows\system32\sysprep
sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown
Note: This will remove any unique information and reseal the OS. Then the system will shut down


Now, boot from that WinPE image that we burned a couple of steps ago

Capturing your Image
Once PE boots, you get a command prompt
diskpart
select disk 0
list volume
(Find the Drive letter that is your installed Windows drive) (Mine was D)
exit

imagex /capture D:\ D:\install.wim "Windows" (substitute D:\ to be whatever your drive letter is)

This will leave you with an install.wim on your hard drive.


Simply copy this install.wim to your USB installer key into the \sources directory (overwriting the one that is there).


Now, if you boot again from this USB key, you can install the system again, and you will get your customized setup versus the typical standard windows 7 image.

Hi there
is the basic Windows 7 WAIK OK or do we need the SP1 (and is this the complete WAIK or does it have to be upgraded from the non SP1 version).

I haven't had a lot of experience with the whole PE / deployment issue -- running a CLI is fine (I do enough on Linux anyway).

Otherwise your instructions look good -- might be interesting to get this on to the micro SD card on a smart phone since most smart phones can switch into "USB" mode where Windows simply sees the smart phone as an external USB drive.

On the W8 forums I used the imagex program from the VISTA waik to image the W8 to go stuff (Windows 8 on a Stick) - worked fine but that's a whole different process since you are actually creating a BOOTABLE real running Windows system and not the slipstreamed Windows 7 install disk which is what I would like to get here

Cheers

I just use the WAIK that I downloaded back in July of 2010. I don't see any reason why it would need components from SP1...we only use the WAIK to get a bootable PE disk that we can run imagex from.
