Windows 7: Recompilation of Vista or 7 Disk

That's not what he is asking, Ted - he wants a slipstreamed system that he can take with particular apps already on the DVD - so they are *preinstalled* - as in take it to a new machine and blow the partition away and install.

I used to do this with XP, because I could actually tell XP which partitions to use for what - so I had a system partition with nothing but the system drive, and a separate partition that actually created Program Files and the entire Documents and Settings structure on that partition - meaning I had a very small system partition *and* all my settings were saved whenever I blew away the system partition and started from scratch.

In the same manner, a slipstreamed DVD also contains drivers for your system, apps that you always want installed, etc - it is your own home made installation brew not for *backup* purposes but for *future installs* purposes.



I2 - you can use the multi button at the right to quot multiple people at one time - it makes it easier to read than making separate posts for each quotation....

YES! That's exactly what I want, how do I do that?

As I said, nuhi is probably already working on a 7lite project - just wait, or check out the projects forum at NeoWin to see if he is or not.

Nuhi is the developer of nLite and vLite, and NeoWin has several dedicated forums to slipstreaming, so if you want advanced knowledge detailing slipstreaming apps and drivers into ISOs I'd check there.

Finally, a caveat - although I had that kewl XP via nLite, Vista does not allow you to *pre-specify* partition locations for various components like XP - so I stopped slip streaming and started just manually moving the special folder locations by hand.

now that I know I have certain apps I use *all the tie* I think I am going to check out slipstreaming again.

I have vLite for Vista and I can't see where to add your own programs to it...

I know, but when they come in at different times, you can't quite do that

True that lol.

The *really* kewl thing, though, about the multi button, is that it places the quoted text in the order that you click the multi button....

As for adding apps - there was a side project over at NeoWin detailing exactly how to add apps, as nuhi just made vLite about removing stuff from the basic Vista install....

So how do I add stuff as opposed to removing it?

Oh, it is there - I promise you - I had started working on making a slipstreamed install with Office and WinRAR and a few other little goodies - then ran into the brick wall of not being able to pre-define the location of my special folders - and gave up.
