@gendouhydeist: I used the one delivered with vLite and I would use the one from Windows Vista AIK SP1 if I would need it now.

@Cr4z33: I do not even need to check, I now I always use mountrw in my batch-file and never mount.

Yeah, my fault actually.

I just realised I had to run no commands at all apart from removal.bat and its related actions... :blushing:

OK I am getting a different problem now.

I succesfully created a first Windows 7 Ultimate ITA installation, but I didn't like the fact .NET Framework was missing and many programs needed it.

So I started again making a new revision, but now during the Windows installation I get a generic installation error when the setup is at the Updates step. :no:

I have to say I got some errors while running removal.bat, also I didn't need to include languages (I've got an Italian RTM build), drivers and updates.

All I want is to remove the unneeded stuff but Windows Media Player, .NET Framework and the Intel Matrix Storage drivers.

Therefore I deselected Windows Media Player and the INTEL driver in vLite, and used "set remove.NET=K" in REMOVAL.BAT.

Here is how does my batch file look like:

@echo off

I appreciate the work of those involved but these guides are very poorly laid out and written. Many people are receiving errors due to steps overlooked or not easily understood due to gaps in the guides.

May I suggest a detailed, step-by-step guide that uniformly addresses what users should expect, must do and can easily understand? One will be surprised how a little structure in guides goes a long way to solving common issues and preventing common mistakes.

@kawe: I saw it, but I will not participate in illegal distribution.

@Cr4z33: sorry, but I can only help you out once I have my own non-English release. I had no issues when integrating Dutch, removing English and that performing the additional actions.

ah well, ur right, missed that. well now i am trying to follow some guides and do it myself but still cant figure it out why i am having problems finishing installation. Replied to other topic but with no results. maybe u can help out

i followed the guide made by liquid and finished removing components with dism. problem is that at end of install i get error that setup couldnt configure win to work with my comps hardware..

didnt even edit the removal/components batches

Thanks alot for your lovely tool Jeronimo, I have been using it for some time and playing around with the removal in integration of language packs.

I got 2 suggestion for a "maybe" better code:

When i run removal.bat it doesnt want to open dism.exe (cannot find the %sources%\dism.exe). I found a quick solution by moving the "set sources=%DVD%\sources" just below "set dism="%sources%\dism.exe""

like this

Rem Sources
set sources=%DVD%\sources
Rem Dism
set dism="%sources%\dism.exe"

Next part is the

:langpack
%mountimage%
%dism% /image:"%mount%" /add-package /packagepath:"%DVD%\original\lp7264x64.cab"

Here i changed

%DVD%\original\lp7264x64.cab

to

%langloc%\lp7264x64

%dism% /image:"%mount%" /add-package /packagepath:"%langloc%\lpx64.cab"

I hope u can use this information or test it yourself.

@Rommsey: I intended to share my findings here and to make it easier for others where possible, I had/have no intention of writing a step-by-step guide.

@Cr4z33: sorry but I am not going to look through your entire batch file to see if there might be a mistake in it.

@frabber: thanks, starter post updated

I got an issue with integrating updates with the batch file provided.

Anyone else got problems with that? I can integrate them doing manual file names and locations, but when using the batch file it doesn't work. I have tried working it out but cant seem too solve it.

If i got the updates in the same directory with an other code it works. but when moving them to another dir it doesn't work. Anyone else got issues with "removal.bat updates"?

I am trying different options right now to figure out how to solve this but haven't yet. I hope I'm not the only one having this issue?

PS. I have tried the standard paths provided in the batch file, everything else works but the update integration :(

What kind of errors did you get running removal.bat?

Well, considering I am running it on an Italian release and that I am not including languages, updates & drivers I get missing packages errors when running the packages and cleanup steps.

I tried to cleanup a little bit the batch, but if I will get no support into that I am definitely going to give up and use another better explained and better working method. :hello:

I cannot apply the install_wim_tweak in no f*****g way neither in a real x64 partition nor into wmware because of ownership problems. :realmad:

SYSTEM is the owner and I cannot find a way to take the ownership of the SOFTWARE file located into C:\s2\windows\system32\config.

Even if I apply the authorization settings when I run the tweak I get that annoying error showed below again and again.

For the record it says something like "Exception not handled: System.Unauthorizedblah blah blah" and "Access to path: 'c:\s2\windowsblah blahblah' denied".

Please help. :(

Seriously people if someone finds a solution to this please post it here. :(

do you have UAC enabled? if so, try disabling that & try again? also, make sure you're using imagex from amd64 to mount the wim to c:\s2...?

This is why your guide is very poor and despite your good intentions to help people with your findings, such intentions are wasted by refusing to clearly state your findings and then not offer help directly to someone who tried to follow your steps and ran into issues.

Liquid's guide is superior and as such it's clear that Cr4z33 is making the better choice in looking for help elsewhere.
