Windows 7: TEST -Update 7 installation media

About to give up on this. Tried it several times and keep running into the same error with the Windows install saying corrupted installer when trying to install the iso from a USB device. Tried this several times. Tried it also with a DVD. The second time I went with less options selected for Windows Update. Went with the bare minimum. Not sure what gives. I am sure, I am doing something wrong. Followed the guide to a T! I am going to just do it the normal way with the standard Win 7 iso.

Thanks ICit2lol. I tried just the base iso X17-58997. Got the same error with just the base install. I am thinking the iso is corrupted. I am downloading from a different source.

I know we can replace Updated Sources folder onto a flash stick, but can you drill down to specify folders from Sources which contain these Updates to avoid having to copy the whole thing?

THis has worked great for me for dozens of installs now. I only wish that the changes of the default Search page, shutting Hibernate and UAC off, plus any other unadvertised customizations could have been left up to us. It's a pain to have to mount the .wim just to change those back.

Yes, it is only install.wim that is affected by the updates.

You can avoid the "tweaks" by renaming the .reg files in the BIN folder. Just rename them adm.reg.old, def.reg.old etc or something . They won't then be included. Or you can edit what is in those reg files to put in your own tweaks.

Thanks, Si. And Happy New Year to you.

Many of the Windows 7 installation and repair fixes which are now Best Practices were developed by you here during beta, and in large part responsible for this staying the top tech site in history for almost 5 years now.

I am proud to be your student.
