Windows 7: Slipstreaming Windows 7 with Updates

Slipstreaming Windows 7 with Updates

I have a few questions regarding on what I would like to achieve. Hopefully I am posting this question in the correct forum.

I would like to create a Slipstreamed version of Windows 7 containing SP 1, IE 11 and updates - as many as possible (using the least amount of updates necessary - IE rollups) to get as close as possible with a new Windows 7 Updated DVD.

Why a DVD? Because I have not had luck with using a USB 3.0 Stick. It keeps asking for CD/DVD drivers which I have (including USB drivers), but it refuses to install, so I cannot get past this screen. I have created a slipstream Dual-Layer DVD, but it does not boot in UEFI mode.

I would like the updates and IE 11 to install as a silent install - IE no questions asked during the install process. Just install it.

I would like to use a software tool without having to manually inject updates using any type of manual intervention (IE command lines)

Also, I would like the DVD to be UEFI capable so that I can install Windows 7 using GPT.

I have Windows 7 Pro Edition, so I would like to know if what I am asking is possible - and what tools and updates I would need to accomplish this feat.

Thanks to all in advance.

All you need to create a usb installer with usb 3.0 drivers is Asus EZ Installer software.

Right here under utilities

Thank you for this OldMX.

I checked out the document you provided - as it outlines a lot of manual intervention to create such an installation that I seek - but it may prove to be very successful. I have not been able to create a UEMI DVD with updates using automated tools to take advantage of installing Windows 7 with GPT - such DVDs created with automated tools allowed only to create a Win7 installation using the traditional BIOS bootup which creates MBR disks/partitions.

I will check it out over the next few weeks - I have a bit on my plate at the moment, so I will need to wait until things settle down.

Once you create the updated iso, if you load it with Rufus, you can choose to create an uefi ready usb bootable device.

I have a question I've never slipstreamed updates but what exactly does slipstream mean? Sorry don't mean to high jack the thread!

It means installing updates/drivers into the Windows installation media. Dism is the tool used to do that. Dism is a command line tool, though there are some UI programs to make it simpler.The result is updated installation media. Sometimes called "refreshed" installation media.

Thanks! Are you able to do that with factory drivers as well? I have a HP notebook and I hate having to download all those drivers so are you able to something like that with HP Support drivers as well or nah?

Yes, you can.

You can d/l the drivers from the manufacturer site then integrate/slipstream into installation media.
Or you can export drivers from your current running windows into a folder, rather than downloading them.

Dism++ is a useful tool for that. Dism++86-64.zip
