It isn't just clicking a cmd file. The user would need to select the wim, then the images need to be dispalyed. The user the needs to select the image to mount. Then a mount point has to be selected, it has to be a suitable point, and checks need to be made for any other mounted images.Or it could autocreate a new point, but that doesn't let the user select - which might be useful if e.g. running out of space in current directory, and so on.



Use dism++ it has a very obvious UI.

I have no idea what I was doing wrong the first time, but I have managed to integrate the Simplix pack no problem now, so I had no need to mess about adding cab files etc. Thanks to anyone that helped.

After installing the updated Windows 7 x64 in a VM today, Windows Update said these 5 hotfixes were needed:

KB947821 (this is gigantic, 538 MB)
KB2676562 (6.54 MB)
KB2813347 (4.31 MB)
KB2952664 (6.92 MB)
KB3123479 (205 KB)

All are MSU files so, I will add these to the folder "7UPv50\UPDATES\Installx64" and see what happens on the next install in a VM.

EDIT: the above was true on Windows 7 Ultimate x64, but on the Enterprise edition, no hotfixes were required after integrating the Simplix pack using 7updater. It's probably the only time I have installed Windows and seen a green shield in Windows Update lol.

It does. It works. Just put UpdatePack7R2-20.3.12.exe in the 7UPv50 folder (not in a sub-folder!)

Cheers folks.

Hello everyone, noob here. Hope you are all healthy and busy.

Went through these 77 pages and my head's totally spinning!
So before I dive into the deep end ... don't suppose this will work on a H370 / Coffee Lake board?
( ... I know I will need a discrete gpu card though )
Comments welcome.

You won't necessarily need a discrete gpu. Second post on this thread. HD630 drivers

Thank you SIW2 ... will see if that gets me past that dreaded "you are missing a silly driver" dialog box ... though for that 630 driver pack, which particular files do you think should be included in the folders?


At least for the nvme's it is just like 3 files, though that post#2 rar has a lot of stuff in it ... don't suppose it's just dumping the "graphics" folder into your 7up drivers folder is it?

hy!

I want to ask if you know any method to remove some bloatware from Win7 install disk to fit on single layer DVD. So I want to remove e.g Windows Defender from install disk, not only disable it after installaton!

atamo,

Single layer DVD is 4.7 GB
Windows 7 is 3.1 GB
It fits!
Not sure about removing Defender and as you call it "bloatware". PM SIW2; is the one to ask!

ie8 removal causes problems. The other stuff I tried seemed to work fine.
