    SIW2, I wanted to thank you for this wonderful program, code, tutorial, technique...

    This went without a hitch - processed the updates (79), added a few packages, adjusted the registry (which I had commented out the Hibernate), unmounted, created iso, burned iso - done! I plan to use this to do a clean install on our Acer (once somebody gets media moved to the NAS). I've actually only done a couple of Linux OS installs, and this will be my first Win OS attempt.

    I truly appreciate your efforts - and I look forward to learning from your other posts.

    I`m curious to know what the install time is :)

    Depends on the hardware. On a Core i5 w/8 gb RAM it installs in 15 minutes. I think 20 is about the average. The updates don't add much time.

    But it does take time to do the slipstream which makes it best for one who does installs pretty regularly. I got enough grumbling on my Clean Reinstall OEM tutorial that I added this caveat:
    • You can slipstream the latest Updates into the installer ISO to save at least an hour's Updating after install using Update 7 installation media.
    However it may take an hour to do this so consider how much you want this.

    Hi SIW2,

    thanks for sharing this wonderful helpful tool!
    The process is easy, clean, takes a bit time to complete and works out of the box!

    But...
    Are there any news regarding slipping .net4.5 and IE11 with it?

    Cheers,

    Michael

    4.5 can't be pre integrated, but there is avery useful 4.5.1 slim installer from ricktendo, which you can just run afterwards.

    You can google for it.

    Haven't had time to do ie11 yet.

    IE11 bollixes Win7 gadgets which are popular with millions of users. I spoke with a member of IE team at Global MVP Summit and they don't intend to fix it because they claim they've already warned that gadgets are a security risk. But they won't disable them because they're wildly popular - just like Windows 7 they'd also like to engineer out. I see this a test incursion requiring pushback and will challenge it in Nov Summit IE sessions.

    The solution is to roll back to IE10 and NOT install IE11 if you want gadgets. There are fixes on here but they seem to be trying to engineer those out too. https://www.sevenforums.com/gadgets/3...ml#post2720077

    Si, perhaps you can slip the fix in if IE11 must be included.

    Another way is to use this, thanks to kevin ismael for making it:

    Si, can this be used to also slipstream SP1 into the RTM downloads which are all that's available now at Windows 7 Direct Download Links, Official Disk Images from Digital River?

    No.

    You would need to install the os, install SP1, sysprep and capture.

    The other way is to patch SP1 in. Would be different for each language and edition, though. If everybody had the en-us ultimate, that wouldn't be too bad, but not practical with all the different possibilities.
