Thank you Brink, this is exactly what I was looking for.

I had a feeling the more knowledgeable posters here would already know about RT Seven Lite, or if not then a way to make this work.

I'm starting to wonder if there is anything you guys don't have a tutorial for! Thanks again.

You can save a lot of trouble by simply using the latest official installer with SP1 which is listed in Step 1 of the tutorial Rich linked: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

If you want to slipstream the Updates since then it will save a little time during install but likely not as much time as is consumed by the slipstreaming project - an interesting hobby project for an enthusiast but hardly a time saver for consumers.

Hey Dwarf,

None really other than just being different programs. They are all for slipstreaming. I personally find that "RT Seven Lite" seems to work better in Windows 7, but to each their own though.
