OK, listen I'm going to try out integration manually, will let you know how it works.
Good man....you're very brave. Let us know how it goes.

It's a collection of updates to bring a brand new installation up to a certain point. In addition, I think it adds one or two small features as well...but from what I have read...these aren't really features that hardly any of us will use.

The advantage is that you can load the original DVD, then the service pack and then Windows update will only have a couple of updates. Without the service pack installation, Windows update would then have a ton of updates to download and install from the web.

I'm currently in the process of downloading the RC release of the service pack. I will then run it through rt7lite and let others know of the time required for me on my box.

I'm trying a different approach and doing the slipstreaming on my x86 netbook, which is the only Win 7 OS that I haven't managed to upgrade to SP1 yet.

So far it's got further than it did before failure on my PC, so am keeping fingers, toes, etc. crossed and hoping for success.

By the way, Benjamin at RT Seven Lite support pointed me to their forums here:

RT 7 Lite - RC v1.7.0 and Beta v2.6.0 - Rockers Team

Should anyone need to get further help.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch.......

Well, I've been slipstreaming service packs into Windows releases for quite a number of years now. Granted, the Windows 7 SP1 pack is the largest of the service packs that I have tried to slipstream, but without a doubt the RT7lite process is the slowest slipstream process I have ever used. My typical procedure in the past was using nlite with the Windows Updater Downloader (WUD) packs to get the latest security updates.

For reference, my testing box is an Intel Core 2 Duo 8400 at 3.0ghz, with 8GB of DDR2-800RAM, a single Western Digital 500GB Caviar Blue Hard drive which runs Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate.

1). Took approx 2 minutes and 30 seconds to extract the Windows 7 Ultimate ISO into a folder on my C drive
2). Took about 1 minute and 30 seconds to re-read the image.
3). Took about 59 minutes to slipstream Windows 7 RC1 64bit (880MB roughly) into the build
4). Took about 8 minutes and 30 seconds to re-read/load the image with the Service Pack slipstreamed in. (CPU pegged at 100%)
5). Took approx 2 minutes and 45 seconds to build the output ISO file with the SP1 slipstreamed in.

Starting ISO file was 3,149,108KB and ending ISO file was 3,771,518KB. Took about 1hr and 15 minutes from start to finish.

Yes it takes its time, however it works and is simpler than the manual integration method.
I finally acheived success with mine and learned a lesson the the process.

RT Seven Lite is NOT compatible (yet?) with Windows 7 SP1 only the non-updated Windows 7. It is a beta product in any case so still in development I guess.

It didn't work when I was trying to slipstream a disk in my already-upgraded Win 7 Ultimate SP1, kept failing repeatedly about one-third through slipstreaming, but it succeeded on my netbook which is still non-SP'd (SP1 failed to install several times).

My reason for making the slipstreamed disk is to do an in-situ upgrade/repair install of Win 7 on that netbook.

Hi Ex.brit

I managed to create my slipstreamed disk with SP1 installed but that was on Home Premium

It worked perfectly for me

Must have been something on that particular machine blocking it then, although I got no pop-up warnings at all, weird.
