Please correct your sentence. It is not readable.

How do you do what during that phase of install? You don't need to do anything except wait.

Windows 7 Ultimate

In the setup screen there is an item that says "Installing Updates" and "Installing Features". How would I install flash player during this time of setup? So that it silently does this? Is this a little better? Whoops too many run ons in the last sentence! I'm Sorry!

This (see screenshots under step 7 in the tutorial below) is just Windows 7 checking for installation updates only. Nothing else can be installed until after Windows 7 is finished installing.
