Windows 7: ImageX - Create an ISO from a VHD

How to create .ISO from .VHD file - KezNews.com

You don't need a paid .iso editor, of course.

Extract the 7100 .iso ( which you are using as the host)

Replace the install.wim with the new one you just captured.

Use any pretty much any burning app. to create a bootable .iso from those files. If you have vlite, that will do it easily, or if you have the MS oscdimg.

Unless you want an .iso for some reason - you don't need it at all, it is perfectly easy to use the install.wim to install from.

Nice

I should have added that it can be installed without the need to ISO it but as I (and many others) only use the boot option it wasn't in my head at the time. Thanks

So I can't make the ISO using 7100, isn't that what SoLoR did to make his?

Windows 7 Build 7232 x64 RC
 
 

So the upgrade from 7201 to 7260 using an ISO build from ISO 7201 + VHD 7260 has worked perfectly.

I suppose it is because the setup.exe was not older than the installed version.

I will try to build an ISO with 7229 and VHD 7260.
Then I will try a fresh install and an upgrade if some people are interested with some of those results.
Let me know.

Thanks for clearing that up, I was only doing to do a clean install anyway just to test the build, I usually only run x64 anyway and haven't tried a x86 build since build 7000.

If i want to delete a subdirectory/file or two from "install.wim" in order to clean it up, i understand from the documentation that i have to install "wimfltr.sys" and associated files. Can anybody point me where to download these requisite files from? Thanks.

I can confirm that this method Using the 7201.0.090601-1516_x86fre_client_en-us_retail_ultimate-grmculfrer_en_dvd-ISO
and the 7260.0.x86fre.win7_rtm.090612-2110.client_en-us.ultimate work without any trouble I am running it now.
GImageX seems to be useful also::. Link::. http://www.autoitscript.com/gimagex/
