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

Very clear explaination of how it works, thanks Shaun.

I have done everything in the post and it does it job. No problems with creating the ISO file with SP1 integrated or installing Windows with the burned disks afterwards.

If I install W7 using the burned disks, (created out of the ISO file) the installation does it job and ends normally, however, when I check for Win updates it shows about 44 updates and after those the SP1 again. When checked in system after installing Windows, I it doesn't state it has SP1 installed with the ISO, only after I install it again using MS Update it does show.

I'm using an "All version" disk, directly from Microsoft, a separate x86 and separate x64 version. Localization is Dutch, but I think it shouldn't matter.
So I'm thinking it doesn't integrate the SP1 into the W7 install disks, but I didn't get any error message or anything. It just works fine.

Is there anything I'm doing wrong or does anyone has aditional advice for me please?

Regards,
SuP

So even if you do get this program to work with bugging out / hanging, the disc it creates does not work?

I usually give up at that point and just keep good system images at different good working stages of the installed OS. This way I can just do a system image recovery in about 10 minutes to back at that point again if it all goes.

Interesting, but I never tried it since I always had the two separate ISO files anyway.

This may have been that I installed my current OS with a Windows 7 installation DVD without SP1 and installed SP1 separately, or Windows Update made the installed version newer than the slipstreamed installation DVD.

Personally, I think the slipstream is great to use for a clean install, and to just keep good system images and backups to recover with instead. They are much more reliable to use since you never know when a Windows Update will make your system newer than your installation DVD rendering a repair install almost impossible to do anymore.

Hello SuP, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It doesn't sound like the SP1 was integrated at all for you. After I installed with the created slipstream, it showed SP1 in system.

What did you use for the SP1 at step 9?

I used a single edition ISO instead of a "All version" disk. Perhaps something may be different with the "All verion" one.

You might give it a try again with a single edition ISO or disc to see if that may work better.

Yes, that's true Brink! THAT WOULD work! The most recent system backup(s) seem to be the solution (maybe ONLY) if one experiences OS hardships once a user installs SP1 or for that matter, really for ANY first service pack installed into any major Windows upgrade.

I guess the only thing I could think of that I didn't include in my last post is that the Microsoft factory copy of the Windows 7 retail DVD can still be used for its utilities like Windows startup repair and the like, but that is about it --other than that, the original Windows 7 DVD retail (SP0) is a dud. (Then again, your newly created slipstreamed Windows 7 SP1 can do that too!)

Shawn like you i made the slipstream version for when i want to clean install as it will save time by already having most of the updates, except what we get moving forward. I alway keep a fresh backup image for a quick install if needed.

I suppose another option would be to manually download the MSU files for any new Windows Update after the SP1, then also check the "Integration" option in step 15 to integrate them along with the SP1 and Windows 7 to keep a current slipstreamed installation DVD as the installed OS.

This would be a lot of work to have to create a new slipstream installation ISO or DVD with integrated Windows Updates everytime any important or critical Windows Update comes out. I think using a system image would still work better and be more reliable though.

Yes, Brink! That may work. It is a strong possibility! I get a little more free time I have to attempt that and see what happens! I agree, using a system backup(s) files or images would be *MUCH* easier.

I apologize, I should of said this much earlier... ...your slipstreaming tutorial is excellent! Yours is most detailed I have seen yet and there is a few already now on the web to do this since the final release of Windows 7 SP1 a few days ago.

I am wondering how I can use RT Seven Lite (really, an awesome little utility) if I want to add (integrate) all my motherboard drivers and even some thrid party software as part of the full install slipstreamed Windows 7 SP1? What are the steps or to make it even easier -- what added, removed, or modified steps from your tutorial would I need to perform for:

1. integrate motherboard drivers?
2. integrate third party software?

I am not familiar or savvy with the functions and operations of RT Seven Lite.


Please reply.

Thanks!!!

Thank you ManteCarlo.

2. integrate third party software?

There's no point in integrating programs, since all it will do is have them install at the startup of Windows 7 the first time after installation. You might as well just install the programs yourself.

That's going to have to be something for separate tutorials as it's pretty involved, and may not be worth doing since you would have to keep doing it for every new Windows Update you want included.

UPDATE:
Now included.
