Windows 7: Making a Windows CD with Preloaded Programs

Making a Windows CD with Preloaded Programs

Good day everyone,

I've just went through the beautiful experience of having to reinstall windows on my desktop, and although reinstalling Windows is very easy, reinstalling every program/drivers that I had on my computer is a very time consuming task. Here is my question:

You see on some sites that people release their own version of Windows with preloaded programs/software so that upon the successful installation of Windows the programs are already installed. I would like to create a bootable Windows CD with all of the programs I am now installing, since the list of Programs I need to reinstall is quite long.

As per my usual etiquette, if a successful answer is posted I will add some pictures/tutorial to this post so that if any other user on has the same question this post can then serve as a guide to them.

Thanks to any and all for input

RT7lite can integate 3rd party apps but only those with silent installers. So you need to look around for those.

Simpler way is to image your install using macrium or acronis or even the inbuilt utility, then restore from that image.
