    Question How do I slipstream Win 7 professional??

    Hello,

    I'm trying to slipstream Windows 7 Professional but don't seem to be able to do it. I'm using RT Seven Lite but when i point to the OS folder for the disc there is no slipstream option... Also, I want to slipstream it with SP1 but can't do that either.

    What am i doing wrong???

    You can download Windows 7 SP1 ISOs 'ready made' to save you time. RT Seven can then be used for slipstreaming updates or drivers etc...

    MS in their infinite Balmer based idiocy killed slipstreaming. You can 'slipstream' by installing a copy, running the SP, running sysprep and then taking an image then placing that on the DVD in place of the media wim. You can offline patch some smaller patches to the image without this but there is still a toll at install time.

    Same deal with Office 2007 on where it manually installs each patch after install.

    Best/only sensible way is to download the latest integrated version from the MS site.

    Have not heard of 7 lite but gave up stripping stuff out of OSs for general use a while ago due to weird issues manifesting later.

    ^ This. As mentioned above by SYNACK and Michael, download the 'ready made' ISO from VLSC, TechNet or here.
