Thanks Patrik. It is done automatically by the 7updater script.


The poster Marley10 is either doing something wrong - or there is something on his system that is interfering.

hm. Not sure what the following means. On the right are the Properties of setup.exe extracted from my sources\boot.wim file. On the left are the Properties of setup.exe in my sources\ directory. {Those are the correct two to be comparing?) Both after running v30. They don't match, as you expected.

Not necessarily related:
I am concerned that the 7UPDATERvXX is only modifying Image 1 during processing install.wim. Evidence? First, while running the script at one point it says "Deleting as;ldfkh\Windows7HomeBasic\askljfa;gh;lkj..." (not sure of the exact file name) but it never says this for any of the other Windows versions. Second, when you look at the wiminfo after processing, it appears that only the first image has been processed. (I mentioned this before but you have to look for it in the wiminfo because, as noted before, for some reason wiminfo has multiple entries for each image.)

Patrikk, I'm sorry I don't understand enough of your suggestion to have any comment. SIW2's posts I have to read and reread and try several things each time to understand, and (thankfully) his are very jargon-free. I just don't know enough.

But I want to thank everyone who is still replying to these %$*&^%#)@-ing posts. I've spent countless hours on this--most of the day on at least 8 different days since January, plus an hour here and there when I can---so your 6 hours looks very attractive to me at this point. I would've thrown this f---ing machine out a window and driven over the remains with my car at least 20 hours ago for sure.

It's taken so long and pissed me off so much now that I can't stand to cut my losses. That, and I can't stand to resign myself to using Windows 10.

You know, I was assuming this was a weird Windows thing (from a Linux perspective) since no one on this forum seems concerned by it, but why DOESN'T the modification date change after the 7UPDATER script runs?? Okay, it shows it was accessed when I ran the script... good...but at least in Linux, it SHOULD'VE had a new modification date whenever anything had been written to the file.

(Talking about the install.wim images here...)

Hy maerley10.
Looks like you are really giving some effort - I like this. And I appreciate it if you value what I am doing.
To be 'fair' I have to say that I had some practice and knowledge in slipstreaming already as soon as i had this issue.
What I do with my lines is to integrate drivers and updates into the boot.wim and install.wim with batch files. When I began I mostly used WinToolkit to do my images but with the time I switched more and more to batch files, because they do all the work for you which is easier if you do the same thing over and over again - if they are written correctly of course.
Usually you mount an image, integrate drivers and/or updates and unmount it and after this you create an ISO out of your directory with this file. But in the case with this two NVMe-fixes, you need to copy the mounted files to your source directory BEFORE you unmount it later, which, for me, is unusual, but it works.
What I can do is to create an ISO and/or post a link here to my images what I will do anyways on win-unattended de, but I don't know if that is what you want to do - just use an image that someone else created without understanding how creating the image works.

What operating system are you running it on?
Have you turned off your antivirus?

are pecmd.exe and getwimdir.ini in the bin folder?

@marley10.


It is possible there is something about your system interfering - a weird program like rx rollback, or perhaps permissions problems. What operating system are you trying to run this on?
