Your question is not at all clear. Most Windows 7 Factory DVDs that install the OS have many other software piggy-backed with them. In fact this bundle of software usually referred to as bloatware is more a burden than an asset.

Please explain yourself a little more clearly.

So i want to know to prepare such Bootable CD...

OK. You want to slipstream third party software with your Windows 7 Installation DVD. It is a difficult job but if you persevere you can do it. Read all about how to do it at How to build a slipstream Windows 7 install disc | News | TechRadar. I have never done it because I am not expert enough and feel that learning to create such a slipstreamed Windows 7 DVD is a waste of effort.

For one the third party software that you would installed would be frequently updated like say Google Chrome, Adobe Reader or Avast! Free. So your DVD would be soon out of date. I feel it is better to keep such third party software on a pen drive and keep updating it from time to time while deleting the previous version. It does not take much time to install such software which I routinely do when the updates are released.

Anyway wishing you all the best to complete your project in creating your slpipstreamed Windows 7 DVD. Soon there may be other suggestions too for your project.

That means that the link I had suggested for learning how to slipstream third party software with Windows 7 Installation DVD did not help out.

I am sorry to learn that.

You could try something like this:

Ninite - Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once

It works like a mega-installer, just check off the ones you want and go to town.

First of all, I am not a "dude". I am a grouchy old man.

Well, actually, ummmm..."dude" is OK - but don't overdo it.

Sorry about the last link. It might be worth paying for, but I actually meant to link to this one:

InstallPad - Get programs faster

It is free for personal use (I double-checked), and might save you a little time.
