punkster, if you follow these instructions, you won't have to download the big waik, just the little (200KB) imagex program, which is attached to the post.

it all still works with sp1 iso's.

Mickey, it may not matter, but Imagex was updated in the summer of 2009 (Punkster's second link), though not for SP1 (his first link). The link that you're pointing to is the Dec 2008 release (v6.1.7000.0), while the later one is a different size and v6.1.7600.16385.
