Windows 7: Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 into a Installation DVD or ISO File

Oh, you did get that post? Hehe. Ah, man. I just bought this notebook, why do they not provide them with OS install discs anymore So basically what you said is that if I really truly wanted to slipstream SP1 into Win7 then i'd have to go out and spend cold hard cash on a brand new retail copy?

Or would the original .iso I downloaded work (without using that utility)? As it is a completely legitimate legal copy of the OS.

I had no problem with any iso made up in seeing both SP1 and some 27 updates including IE 9 rolled up together using the program. The initial problem was fitting the 64bit iso on a 4gb flash until reducing the number of updates down to 2 and a little help with another program used for writing iso images to flash drives. Just fit!

I would say give it a try at first with the iso where you then save the integrated version to another folder and then proceed with a second try adding the Windows updates.

Ahh, don't you love those ones? What do you mean exactly, though? I don't quite understand? The error i'm getting is preventing me from doing anything past copying the OS from DVD/iso to a new folder on HDD. I can't get further than that. What would you advise me to do?

EDIT: I'm wouldn't exactly call myself an expert Windows 7 user, if you get what I mean. Back in '98 I was pretty damn good, but i've been away far too long, as they say. So please bear with me

If you extracted all files from an iso that was unnecessary since the program will save a new iso image with the service pack and any updates you add into the integration process. Once the process is finish the option to save as an iso image allows you to save to the desktop or browse to a predetermined folder. The original iso is left unchanged since a new one is created.

Another option when you have extracted all files to a folder would require an iso creator program that will handle over 300mb such the free trial of PowerISO being limited. If you need a new iso to get started several programs for creating iso images are available with most however wanting you to buy the full version.

Review each step with screen in the guide carefully. that explains how to create a new folder for the saved iso or simply browse to a predesignated folder of choice perhaps where the original iso is already kept. Note Step #15 in particular for seeing a new bootable SP1 iso image and clicking the "save" button.

Once you have the new iso image complete you can burn that to disk while the program is still open or to a usb flash drive. (64bit requires 8gb when using the RT7Lite for this) Or if later decide to add updates or more updates become available you would start up the program again but browsing to the first integrated iso.

There is one warning however should be pointed out here. If you close the program up too fast it won't be able to clean up the temporary folder it uses to expand the original iso when creating a temp image as it goes along leaving you with an unmovable problem. This was the one drawback found so far which will prevent the program from starting up again.

If you should run into that there is a method found to manually remove the folder and files in it which will need some explaination however.

Well I have the .iso image on DVD.. I start off in the guide by following step 5 right through, selecting the .iso option under "Browse", leaving me with the .iso extracted to a folder on my desktop. This takes about five seconds It then pops up an alert asking me to "Select a bootable operating system." with the only option being to click OK. If instead, I try to browse to the OS path under Browse, it has the same result, asks me to select a bootable operating system, giving no options. After doing so, this leaves no options to perform in the program itself either, it seems to have loaded nothing in. Also, as I stated in my original post above, if I manually extract the install iso to a folder on my HDD, then browse to it in RT Seven Lite, I am given that error message still. I am mean't to be performing step 8c, as far as I can figure? , but the option to do so is not appearing, therefore I am stuck.

The desktop folder that the .iso has been extracted to contains a file "Readme.txt" containing the following text: "This disc contains a "UDF" file system and requires an operating system
that supports the ISO-13346 "UDF" file system specification." and also, inside a folder named "[BOOT]" there is a 4kb in size .img file name "Bootable_NoEmulation". It seems that it is not extracting correctly?

As I said earlier, I am pretty green and am not really sure of what to do? I only sort of understand what you're saying in the above post, but how am I mean't to integrate SP1 into an .iso if I can't load an .iso into the program correctly? I've read the entire guide inside out numerous times so far. Perhaps I am just not understanding how this all works.. reckon you could put me on the right track mate?

Oh and I do have my full registered version of PowerISO installed, you mentioned that program and I do have it if that helps in any way or form..

EDIT: I mentioned above that I have previously used the utility "Eicfg removal utility" to remove the file ei.cfg from my install iso. Doing this is meant to give the option of which version of Win7 to install during the installation process. I am thinking that since I have done this, that I shouldn't have any difficulty in performing step 8c. But I may just have to re download the install iso and try running it through RT Seven Lite without running the ei.cfg removal utility. What do you think?

Yes, you will need to use a unmodified Windows 7 ISO, or it will most likely not work for you.

Once you have extracted everything from either the original or slipstreamed iso into a folder you can manually remove the ei.cfg file itself and see a new iso made with another program like PowerISO which was found to work here. Since you also have the full version of PowerISO that's a plus bonus for you already!

The new iso created with that program can then be opened by RT7Lite which mounts a virtual image where you are able to add updates or simply go through the steps omitting the second integration of SP1 already seen to and save again.

The second iso saved by RT7Lite will now be unlocked and is ready to see burned to disk or written to a large enough usb flash drive. The tests here confirmed that a new unlocked iso including numerous updates integrated along with SP1 and the IE 9 installer worked out well.

The 4gb flash drive problem with RT7Lite of running over the amount of drive space available by as little as 70mb in some tests adding updates was solved by reducing updates and the help of another program to see the iso written to a 4gb model. IE 9 however remained in the next successful image to see that just fit on a 4gb Kingston DT101 model flash drive used for the testing purposes.

For the ei.cfg file that is located in the resources folder once you have extracted everything from a retail iso or copied everything into folder from a retail 7 dvd. You shouldn't have any problems other then closing the RT7Lite program too fast before it finishes cleaning up the temp folder it uses.
