Update your Win 7 installation media-9.jpg

7. It will tell which images are in the installation media.


Update your Win 7 installation media-10.jpg

8.Then it will ask which image you want to update . You can select one of the images or * for ALL images. Then press enter

Then it proceeds.

I can take a while to integrate the simplix updates - perhaps an hour - depends on your machine.

Thanks for the illustrations. So in my case I would select image 3, W7 Pro.
So do I now burn this lot to the DVD+RW disk? And then use this for the first boot set up in the newly assembled tower?

After it has finshed the updating, you can create an iso.


Shockingly, that is what this is for:

Update your Win 7 installation media-create-iso.jpg

It has been very cunningly disguised by naming it CREATE-ISO.

If you don't know how to burn an iso, or extract it to bootable usb,, anybody here can explain it.

Got it. That's the last stage. I can do an ISO using "Easy Burner".
I'm now set to go.

Hello.

Can someone upload new screenshots, especially for step 2. (2. It will ask you to browse to installation media

Update your Win 7 installation media.-2.jpg) The links are dead for the screenshots

I think I am missing something.

Things that I've done that has not worked:

a) Tried to choose as path for windows installation files a USB drive with my windows 7 iso "burned" into it.
b) Tried to choose as path for windows installation files a USB drive with the provided iso 17514x64-v9.iso "burned" into it.
c) Tried to choose as path for windows installation files a DVD with my windows 7 iso "burned" into it.
d) Tried to choose as path for windows installation files an extract from my windows 7 iso a folder in drive C:

In all 4 cases, nothing happens EXCEPT the browse for folder selection pop up coming up again and again and again.

Please help

I extracted the contents from the iso with 7-zipnamed the folder Windows7 or whatever
placed folder in C:
that is what you want to select the folder that contains the contents of the iso you extracted.
you can create an ISO with the ISO creator in the folder
or any ISO creator, my favorite is ImgBurn

It is expecting:

installation media directory\sources\boot.wim

and

installation media directory\sources\install.wim

Update your Win 7 installation media-correct-paths-7up.jpg



If either of those is absent the browse window stays until you select a valid installation media directory.


I could include an error message to alert people who select invalid directory.

You can replace 7UPDATERv42.cmd with this 7UPDATERv42A.cmd
7UPDATERv42A.zip which will tell you what you are doing wrong.

(In addition a dvd is not suitable because it not writeable.)

Update your Win 7 installation media-first.png

Then I get this:
Update your Win 7 installation media-second.png

Which isn't in the images you posted above. When I get this window what do I do next, or have I gone wrong at the very start?
