Customized Windows 7 Disk Help needed

How do I build a Windows Seven Installation DVD With 3 party Utils and drivers. Then How do build a batch file that Will install these Utilities silently such as avast Anti Virus. So they install during the Installation of windows? Also how do I keep my files outside of the source directory and in there own directory and Install the programs?? Also all the drivers ! John

You can't, but what you can do is install Windows and the other things you want, and when it is to your liking you use an imaging program such as Macrium Reflect to capture that state and store it on another drive. Using a bootable disk you create with the program the image file can be restored to your drive typically in 10-15 minutes and you can repeat this procedure as often as you like.

This can all be done - but some of the items (like AVAST) would be installed after the W7 install completes. I've seen Toshiba do it using a very old version of AutoIt to install all of their bloatware automatically after Windows installs.

That said, doing this the way that you described (and the way that Toshiba did it) is is not the most efficient process. As BJB mentioned, imaging might be better or sysprep might be an option too: Windows 7 Image - Customize in Audit Mode with Sysprep
