Don`t you know that`s breaking the law

And we can`t help you with that.

I want to distribute it to people inside my organization not for the world.
We have all the licesenses for Windows and other programs.
Thats not breaking the law.


I've contacted Microsoft in my country and I am not doing nothing ilegal.
For each installation, I am willing to do, I will activate Windows with legitim Keys, also other programs too.

I am not a pirate, I am an integer person.

That's fine then, cajosx.

Do you find it inconvenient to apply an image instead? This is how organizations normally apply an installation to multiple PC's.

It is normal to create a custom install.wim. Nothing strange or illegal about it. MS provides sysprep to help.

It is unusual to try using dl dvd, though.

Did you split the wim before putting on dl dvd?

You can see if that works better.

7Lite can split the image, I believe. If not Vlite does.

He will split it with more usual tools imagex, or something with a gui.
imagex /split c:\original-install.wim c:\install.swm 2096

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I've made some advance.
The problem is with the Double Layer one and two. Some files that are burned to second Layer are not being read by the UEFI boot.
I will make some more tests with the legacy and UEFI boot to see where the are stored in the layers.

I've done it!
DVD DL now boots in Legacy or UEFI modes.
Tested in VMWARE and on a laptop.
I will make more three installations on desktop to test it.

Nice work!

Can you tell us exactly what resolved the DL's UEFI install issue? Splitting the image?
