In a short time SP1 for Win 7 will be released to the general public. As in the past, people will probably want to slipstream SP1 into 7. According to an April 2009 APC Magazine article
the creator of nLite and vLite had no plans for a 7Lite version. Early tests with 7 Beta showed limited success with vLite and dismal success with RTM 7.
Any thoughts on how slipstreaming will be done without a 7Lite? Is 7's architecture so different from Vista that other slipstreaming methods won't work? Is RT 7Lite
a viable alternative for slipstreaming? And finally, many manufacturers do not provide any kind of install disk (either full install or recovery) with their machines and instead opt to have a recovery partition. How would this affect slipstreaming?
Since SP1 has not been released to the general public and this is all speculation, I figured General Discussion would be the best place to post. If I was wrong please feel free to move to another category.
