Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 in three partitions

Installing Windows 7 in three partitions

HI

Should I create a custom DVD of Windows 7 (all editions) to force the creation of three partitions: a boot partition, a system partition (C ) and a data partition (D) to automatically save the users directories in D:\Users\<Name-user-account>.

The boot partition must be set to 100MB. Instead, the size of the other two partitions must be set directly by the person who will install Windows 7.

So, how do I create this DVD?

THANKS

BYE

Assuming that you have a .ISO image of Windows 7, just put a blank DVD and start burning using The Official ImgBurn Website .

Perhaps you did not understand: How do I create this custom ISO with only the DVD of Windows 7 and the Windows AIK software?

For me, this work can also be done with only Microsoft software but, unfortunately, I do not know how. So, can you help me to create this custom ISO?

To be honest the creation of a customised unattended or minimal attended install DVD will involve quite an investment of time in learning the use of the WAIK.

This will be justified if you are dealing with many identical installs but personally,I feel, if the only common factor will be the pre-partitioning of the drive and or the number of installs is less than 100 or so there are other methods to achieve your requirements than the bespoke DVD.

Something like the free partition wizard boot DVD would allow you to partition a drive in a few minutes for each install

Partition Wizard is a Windows based FREE Partition Manager. It works as partition magic and supports Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008 server and Windows 7. FREE for Home and Business user.

if you decide to go the route of using WAIKK to deploy the best starting point is probably Technet
