  1. I tested three times already with following few steps :

    1. use GIMAGEX with install.wim , tabs APPLY, then CAPTURE of desired image; i placed wimgapi.dll for Win7 (downloaded from win a win7 PE project) in Gimagex folder and that was enough ;

    2. use VLITE in "original state" - vista vimfltr and wimgapi.dll copied in the wellknown folders.

    No need switching between wimfltr an winmount ! No need WAIK (I never hadn't hve that kit in my computer just wimgapi.dll for GIMAGEX).

    Vlite and GIMAGEX don't use common files, because they running in separated environments. Believe me, wimfltr.sys of Vista was ONLY vimfltr used in entire operation, and ONLY for vlite. Who needs winmount.sys ?!

    That's all, 2 simple steps, and I installed without any error 3 various images from Windows 7 SP1 AIO kit.

    And to be shure, I worked with fresh instaled OS every time..

    switching between filters is no longer required. u just need to make sure when using seven imagex, waik 2.0 wim filter is in use

  2. i just did another test & no errors after vlite

    u could try this way:

    1) ensure waik 2.0 is installed

    2) in cmd prompt, go to Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64 and execute wimmountinstall /install

    3) copy wimmount.sys from above folder to Program Files (x86)\vLite\wimfltr\x64

    4) rename wimfltr.sys (this is the vista version) to something else such as wimfltr2.sys as you will need it later

    5) rename the copied wimmount.sys to wimfltr.sys

    6) right click wimfltr.inf Program Files (x86)\vLite\wimfltr\x64 folder to install

    7) using gimagex or imagex, mount install.wim and then dismount wim with commit changes. this should take a while around 20 minutes depending on pc. u should only need to do this once to a wim unless u start from afresh

    8) go back to the vlite wimfltr folder and rename wimfltr2.sys to wimfltr.sys (also rename wimfltr.sys back to wimmount.sys)

    9) right click wimfltr.inf and install again. this will copy the vista version back to system32\drivers

    10) use vlite

    u may need to switch between the 2 filters when using imagex and vlite

    For Step 7, GImageX is used with Seven ImageX. For Step 10, vLite is used with Vista wimfltr. Okay, I get that.

    Questions:

    For Step 8, do I have to install WAIK 1.1 (Vista) or just have to rename wimfltr2.sys? Other than that, if I want to install WAIK 1.1 (Vista), do I have to uninstall WAIK 2 (Windows 7) first? In other words, can I keep both WAIKs installed without one affecting another?

    u can not have both waiks installed. i recommend to install both not together though, to copy the imagex folder to another folder and then uninstall as the full waik installations are not required as in post #93

  3. I tryed again and indicated fields with "Windows 7 Professional",then just make ISO in vLite,nothing else and I got this error now

    I didnt entered cd-key in vLite,I only checked "Make ISO".

    When i click OK its going to screen "Install now" and then i again recive this error.

    Any idea?

    This becoming very very frustrating.

    if you have the ultimate msdn iso you can not use pro as a trial serial is not provided. u have to use ultimate

  4. i may have found another way to delete files from the wim. it involves using vista imagex and seven imagex. if you use seven imagex, u cant remove files from the winsxs due to file ownership restrictions whereas if you use vista imagex, you can

    I think this is the same problem I was having. For the last week I was using vista imagex and was removing packages get it wont install then. With seven imagex I am can't remove packages or even mount the registry.

    Are you doing this before or after vlite?

    the reg wim tweak and package removal can be done using seven imagex but it takes a long time to complete. ths must all be done before vlite. im testin now to see if this can be done with vista imagex instead

    ps i would recommed to install waik 1.1 and 2.0, copy over imagex then uninstall both from your system such as

    C:\ImageX\seven\amd64 <------ this folder is from windows aik\tools folder (waik 2.0)

    C:\ImageX\vista\amd64 <------- this folder is from windows aik\tools folder (waik 1.1)

    place a copy of gimagex into each amd64 folder where imagex resides and then test this way

  5. i just did another test & no errors after vlite

    u could try this way:

    1) ensure waik 2.0 is installed

    2) in cmd prompt, go to Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64 and execute wimmountinstall /install

    3) copy wimmount.sys from above folder to Program Files (x86)\vLite\wimfltr\x64

    4) rename wimfltr.sys (this is the vista version) to something else such as wimfltr2.sys as you will need it later

    5) rename the copied wimmount.sys to wimfltr.sys

    6) right click wimfltr.inf Program Files (x86)\vLite\wimfltr\x64 folder to install

    7) using gimagex or imagex, mount install.wim and then dismount wim with commit changes. this should take a while around 20 minutes depending on pc. u should only need to do this once to a wim unless u start from afresh

    8) go back to the vlite wimfltr folder and rename wimfltr2.sys to wimfltr.sys (also rename wimfltr.sys back to wimmount.sys)

    9) right click wimfltr.inf and install again. this will copy the vista version back to system32\drivers

    10) use vlite

    u may need to switch between the 2 filters when using imagex and vlite

  6. my guess its the wimfilter that is corrupting the image. when you're mounting/dismounting with gimagex (or imagex), make sure the wimfilter is from waik 2.0 or win7. then u can install the vista waik wimfilter for vlite...? when dismounting, it should take around 20 minutes to complete

  7. ps can someone try this for me:

    1) ensure u have waik 2.0 installed as u will need imagex from that

    2) mount install.wim with imagex, u do not need to do anything such as add or remove files

    3) unmount wim with commit changes

    4) run vlite, make sure u have wimgapi.dll & wim filter from vista waik

    let me know the outcome

  8. Ok guys tried again with extreme version I have followed completly instuctions, there was no errors and I have added setup.exe from original DVD, here is the error I get:

    111mrgp.png

    which setup.exe did you copy? the one from the root or the one from the sources folder?

  9. I have tried to copy the setup.exe from the root to the sources folder but that doesn't change the error

    there are 2 setup.exe in the iso, one in the root & 1 in the sources folder! you need the setup.exe from the sources folder that needs copying to the sources folder of the vlite copy
