Windows 7: Unattended multiple program silent installation

Unattended multiple program silent installation

whenever i have to re-install windows, i have a folder inside my downloads called Basic installation toolkit (B.I.T),which has inside, all of the programs i would use every day. Installing all of these programs one by one if a long and boring process , i would like to make an installer that will install them one by one silently (don't have to touch the computer and don't see the programs installing, only the installer which shows you which program is installing and how long is left) Much like the visual studio and Microsoft office installations, all you see is the programs installing, you don't have to click agree for every program. See attached file for picture of visual studio installation.

I have tried the NSIS Compiler and HM NSIS Edit tool but i don't think they are the right tools for the job, i also found this:Unattended, A Windows deployment system: Unattended/Silent Installation Switches for Windows Apps

it is a list of batch commands for installing programs, but does not work with all programs, e.g. antivirus and adobe installers.

Just hoping that someone would be able to help me out
