Windows 7: Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 into a Installation DVD or ISO File

I do have a question for you though, Shawn, since I don't use RT7lite. Does service pack 1 show up in the "Installed Windows Updates?" Like when you go to Windows Update from the All Programs list, then click on Installed Updates at the bottom left hand corner. Is it displayed there as an installed update?

Yes, it will be listed there unless you used the Windows 7 SP1 Disk Cleanup Tool command options. It removes the SP1 entry since you will no longer be able to uninstall it afterwards. However, the SP1 will still be listed in the View update history location if the SP1 was installed through Windows Update.

I was just curious, because it's also listed as an installed update using the WAIK method. So neither method is a true slipstream per se. They just install the service pack separately during setup. I guess Microsoft quit supporting true service pack integration after XP, because you couldn't do it in Vista either. The Windows 7 SP1 offered at TechNet is a true integration though. I sure am glad I got that just prior to my subscription expiring!

At any rate, it's a whole lot better than installing the service pack after the initial OS installation. Especially for those who need to do a ton of clean installations over the course of a year.

It's also the same way with the WAIK in regards to the SP1 cleanup tool as well.

One last question for you, Bro. When you go to install the OS from the disc this thread instructs you how to create, does the OS title actually say "Windows 7 Service Pack 1" when you go to sign the EULA? The WAIK method leaves out the SP1 in the title at install, but has it in the edition title after the desktop loads for the first time.

No problem mate.

Oh no, using the RT Seven Lite program in the tutorial to slipstream SP1 into Windows 7 is a true integration afterwards. Only if you installed the SP1 through Windows Update after installing Windows 7 will you see SP1 listed in the "view installed updates" (Programs & Features) or "View update history" (Windows Update).

Unless you added a Windows Update to the slipstream Windows 7 SP1 and used it to install with, then it will not SP1 listed in the EULA during installation. After the installation is finished, you will see SP1 at the top of the System (Control Panel -> System) properties page though.

But the pic you posted did in fact have the SP1 listed in the "Installed Updates." A true SP1 integration won't have it listed. It seems to me that RT Seven Lite uses the WAIK too, which isn't really a true integration like we could do in XP. It merely installs the service pack during setup.

You will see SP1 at the top of the System (Control Panel -> System) properties page using the WAIK method as well, but it's not a true integration. I'm pretty certain that both methods [WAIK & RT Seven Lite] are the exact same thing, only RT Seven Lite has a GUI for less advanced users. If you'll notice, when you do a clean install of the TechNet Windows 7 SP1 OS, it won't have the service pack in the "Installed Updates" or anywhere else. There are no "cleanup" files for the service pack either. It's a true integrated service pack, and therefore there are no backup files at all. Both methods merely take an OS image after the service pack is installed. See what I'm saying?

It's not the same as the TechNet OS installation image, or if you were to buy a physical "Windows 7 SP1" disc from Microsoft. At least, that's what I'm thinking. In other words, to simplify what I'm saying. Using the WAIK method, or RT Seven Lite, they don't produce the same disc image as one you would buy from Microsoft, or a software distributor. In XP, you could integrate a service pack that would produce the exact same thing as a purchased disc from Microsoft with the service pack already integrated. I have no idea why Microsoft no longer supports true integration anymore, but it's a real bummer for many people.

Have you installed your TechNet Windows 7 SP1 yet?

The pic I posted was not from a slipstream Windows 7 SP1 installation created using the tutorial on the first page with RT Seven Lite. It was from a Windows 7 installation that had SP1 installed separately afterwards through Windows Updates.

Trust me mate, the RT Seven Lite program as in the tutorial will create a true SP1 integratation.

You can create a Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 ISO from the tutorial and create a virtual machine in Windows 7 Virtual PC with the ISO to test and verify.

Much, much easier! That's how that goes! It's a time saver when you look at what it would take for download as well as install time for everything. And if IE 9 ends up seeing an MSU that will be another plus to consider.

Honestly, I don't think that's possible Bro. I haven't looked into it, but I've given it some thought. I just don't see it happening. It's easy to unloack all editions on a finished slipstream disc, but having both architectures on a single slipstreamed disc doesn't seem possible. I wouldn't be able to test it anyway, because all my Windows 7 installation DVD's are from TechNet, and they don't offer a download with both architectures on a single DVD. They have one for Office though.

But if is possible somehow, you will definately have to do it on a x64 machine. There's no way you could get a x64 disc built properly on a x86 machine.
If you had to use the WAIK and that was strictly for the 64bit over 32bit having two different versions that would be the case. If you have a WAIK that works well on both from there it would only be a matter of placing files in their correct places to prepare at least an iso.

Some form of separator or divisions of compressed archives where a main gui is what autoloads allowing to select which "flavor"(32 or 64) of Windows.

Final analysis? Never happen? It wouldn't be "impossible" but far more time consuming until a working method could be simplified in some way being rather involved from the start.

Probably the best example is a utility disk you download that has several tools and you select one from a menu while each is kept separate and maybe compressed into an archive which expands once selected to initialize the setup.

Project? Yes for a programmer. Practicality for typical user? ??? likely none!

Ahhhhhh, that's where we got our wires crossed. No need to test, I trust that you know what your talking about, Shawn. But I have just recently gotten interested in virtual computing, so maybe later on down the road when I find the time.
