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

@ Brink:

Thank you for taking the time to elaborate on the steps Brink! That is very helpful!!!

I have one last favor to ask. Is there some means using RT Seven Lite to create an EXE instead of a bootable ISO as you end product in process and still adding those Windows Updates you address in your last post? I understand I would still need to make that bootable ISO too to store away so I could still use it at a later time and continually integrate other Windows Updates. I also know ISO and EXE are totally different animals and literally converting the end product of a created ISO or EXE to the other file type is not possible, but *while in process* it seems RT Seven Lite has multiple options to finish with either an ISO or EXE file of your choosing.

I do not want to be a pain any more after this request, but if there is a way to also create an EXE file by diverging at some step in your past post in order to create the EXE file too with those Windows Updates? Could you kindly provide the modified steps from what you previous posted to further create an EXE file? To make it easier for you, this would be abbreviated steps from your last post.


I think after you provide this additional modified steps for EXE file creation, I will have a semi-good grasp of how to get around RT Seven Lite.

Please reply.

Thank you!

Sorry Montecarlo, but I just do not see a way to create an EXE file from this using RT Seven Lite. Plus, I do not know how you could if you are able to.

You could install the free program 7-Zip. Afterwards, right click on the ISO file and click on 7-Zip, click on Extract Files, save to your Desktop. This way you have the DVD files in that folder on your desktop that you can run the Setup.exe file from to install the slipstream Windows 7 SP1 with instead.

This tutorial has been updated to include the option to integrate Windows Updates in the new or previously created Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 installation DVD, bootable USB flash drive, or ISO file.

Hello Danny,

Sorry, but as far as I know the Windows SP1 backup files cannot be removed when installed using a slipstream Windows 7 SP1.

Thanks for the tutorial.

One question though. I went ahead and followed the instructions verbatim and created a slipstreamed Windows 7 image with Sp1 (no other updates added). I extracted the newly created image and noticed that there are exactly the same number of files and folders as my original extracted Windows 7 image (without SP1 added).

In both the original Windows 7 image and the newly created slipstreamed image with SP1 there are 874 files and 199 folders taking up 3.63GB of space. Shouldn't the new image with SP1 added be larger? I even went ahead and went through the whole process a second time (in case I might have overlooked something the first time around) and I got the same result.

Any help wouild be appreciated. Thanks

For a general install of the SP1 once the backup files are removed you wouldn't be able to uninstall SP1. Some are backing those up prior to deletion.

Presently I'm at 96-98% mark after 1hr. 37min. here using the RT7 Lite. It's moving faster at the end having just noticed the guide here after already having downloaded, installed, and started the slipstream. And it just now finished to the proceed button.

The guide here however will come in very handy for review and when going to update on the updates later since this is only the SP1 at this time.
(First I to find all those updates that will be imcluded later.)

Just verified the bootable iso at 3.61gb for the 64bit Ultimate.

Hello Loungefly, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Not sure about the size, but if you did all of step 8 to add the SP1, then it will be slipstreamed in.

As a test to help be sure without actually installing the Slipstream Windows 7 ISO that you created, you could also run the RT Seven Lite program again, but only up to doing step 5 to select your slipstream ISO. When you do only step 7 next, look in the information area of the progam as below to see if you have Service Pack 1 listed with the same version number. If you do, then you have SP1 slipstreamed in the ISO. You can then just close RT Seven Lite to stop it.
