Windows 7: Unattendable Windows 7 Setup

Unattendable Windows 7 Setup

Hi There,

I need to create a custom/unattendable setup for Windows 7 Professional for my new laptop that I will be purchasing soon I will also need to install certain Windows Componants along with other customisations.

My current laptop is running Windows XP Pro SP3 and i'm looking for a piece of software that will enable me to complete the setup tweak.

I have donwloaded and installed vLite from on my XP machine but it has asked me to download the WIN AIK (Automated Installtion Kit) from the Microsoft Website. This is only combatable for Windows Vista and Server 2008 and is 1.3GB in size.

I need to able to do this on my XP machine so it's ready for my new machine.

If you have ay ideas on what software there is about for this then any ideas will be great.

I can't answer your questions about XP. But Vlite needs the files from the AIK to work. Although it says it is for Vista it runs well on win 7. The AIK for win 7 does not have the files that Vlite needs. So, don't make the same mistake I did. I had to download it twice.
