Windows 7: Streaming a Windows Install disk: How To (easy mode)?

Streaming a Windows Install disk: How To (easy mode)?

Ave Populus:

1) I am looking to make me a streamed install disk (W7U x64), I found quite a few tutorials, but nowhere a decent explanation where to get the bloody update files.
And YES, I have a licensed copy, before someone starts to get on my case.

Reason: I install a lot of PC's for the less fortunate, for free.
However, each installation takes me a full day to upgrade the systems.
I want to make a disk that has all up to date updates (including the WAT), but where to get the darned files?

2) What is the best easy-to-use streamer?

Thank you very much:

Everything needed is here to do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
including the latest official media for your licensed version.

To create install media for all versions its explained in Step 1 of the tutorial

There is also a link there to a tutorial on how to slipstream the latest Updates into the installer, but it must be redone for each version if you have unlocked all of them. So I'd start with 64 bit Home Premium and then add the others later as needed.

Where did I suggest a single step to do a backup?

I gave you the exact steps to create a Win7 installer for all versions (if desired) and with all the latest updates.

What is your problem?

Excuse me, I have misread a part, I apologize.
English is not my first language, misunderstanding from my part.

I hope you accept my apology.
