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

Are you trying to create a slipstream that's the same 32-bit or 64-bit as the installed Windows on the PC?

You might see if you may be able to download a Windows 7 w/SP1 ISO at the Microsoft link below. This will save you the trouble of trying to slipstream it.

In what was not one of my brighter moments....the reason that RT could not integrate the service pack is because....it was already incorporated into the disc that I created the ISO from. Sorry for wasting everybody's time.

P.S. MS will not let you download a recovery disc if you have an OEM liscense. I tried all 4 keys of my OEM's and none of them allowed me to download. Got an error message telling me to contact the vendor for a recovery disc.

That's ok JCB. The important thing is that it has SP1.

Thanks Shawn, link gives service packed ISOs indeed. Just installed on VirtualBox. I used my retail Ultimate key (restricted to be activated in Middle East and Africa).

edit:

Does there a preferred order to installing the updates to a slipstream install and does RT 7 lite take care of this? I'm reading another tutorial that suggests using another program, NTLite, and that "NTLite will add the updates in the best order automatically." : (https://www.raymond.cc/blog/create-a...-install-disc/)

Any thoughts on this?

Heya Brink, I have a question. I had made my ISO from my copy of W7 Pro 64, it is a retail CD.
I followed the instructions to use RT7Lite, and I added on SP1, and the updates, which I downloaded as a big block of MSU's form here Windows Updates Downloader (WUD) (2.26gb in total) I ran through the instructions and I found the ISO file to be the same size it started out as.

Is there a way to check if everything made it into the ISO right, as I need to reinstall badly and I am trying to avoid spending the huge amount of time it takes to do all the updates.

THANKS!

You can use the ISO to install to a Virtual Machine (i.e., VirtualBox). Also you can get a SP1 ISO from "Microsoft Software Recovery" (since you say you have a retail copy - you have a retail key for it, right?), I believe it may make a difference when/if you may need to repair install:

Attempting to slipstream SP1 into windows 7 64 OEM DISC.

Can't get the microsft link, because it's an OEM disc.

RT7 lite does NOT show slipstream option for some reason!!!

I can show you a screenshot, slipstream checkbox is NOT THERE!

So therefore is there anyone other way to slipstream?

Thanks!

Hello mannasee,

You'll need to use a retail copy. A OEM disk will not work.

Thanks, yes I don't have one. that's the issue.. Just OEM, as I build my own machines.

I remember back in the day you used to be able to easily slipstream into XP without needing 3rd party software....

I guess those days are over?

Thanks!
