Windows 7: How to slipstream sp1 into an iso?

How to slipstream sp1 into an iso?

I'm going to be doing a clean install, as I'm getting an SSD soon, and I want to know how, if possible, I would put sp1 on my windows 7 iso to preferably install 7, along with sp1, and if possible, all of the updates for my computer.

Is this possible? How would I go about doing it?


For the record, if I simply have to download the sp1 exe from microsoft, extract it, and put the files on the iso, I know how to do that just fine.

Ah, thanks.

Would I also be able to put system specific drivers on there?
I have to plug in a usb dvd drive to get my network drivers.. I haven't bothered to either make an iso of it, or to see if I can get the executable off it yet.

Also with that program, it would be possible to prevent some features from being installed, like IE for example?

Why do you want to slipstream when you can download the Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from the Digital River Servers?

Just make sure you download the correct version for which you hava a valid Product Key and 32bit or 64bit as you may want to install if you have a Retail version Key.

If you want to clean install on an OEM machine not only the version but bit also should be the same if you want to retain the OEM activation.

This is incorrect. While OEM's may produce machines now with only 64-bit supported, the Win7 EULA allows use of either 32-bit or 64-bit with each license and this provision cannot be overruled by the OEM lest they are unlawfully interfering with the terms of the EULA.

In addition I have found the needed bit-version drivers in every case where an OEM claims they are not available - most of them in the installer, others on the Support Download's webpage of the device model.

This is another reason during a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to use the Product Key on COA sticker so it transfers activation to MS servers where you will be fully protected by MS under the EULA against unlawful OEM restrictions administered by abysmal OEM Tech Support.

You want the latest official ISO download which Jumanji linked for you.
