When you have integrated IE9, updates etc., you can use the compress.cmd given above!

I've done like this for me.

It's always needed to mount/unmount the image before to compress a new time without error with the same compression!

Do not compress the install.wim image twice![

TNX myselfidem and sorry if i'm repeating. I just want well understanding.

1) In my case (described above), by using Export.cmd, I launched

"C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\imagex.exe" /export C:\Win7\sources\install.wim 4 C:\Win7\sources\installnew.wim "Windows 7 ULTIMATE" /compress maximum /check

Then by using now (after integrated IE9, updates etc...) the compress.cmd I'll lauch again

"C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\imagex.exe" /export C:\Win7\sources\install.wim 1 C:\Win7\sources\installv2.wim "Windows 7 ULTIMATE"  /check /compress maximum

And you warn me :blink:

Do not compress the install.wim image

2) Do I have to mount my install.wim before compressing? Or, the compress.cmd will do the job?

Regards

You don't need to mount the install.wim image using the command /export.

First you can use Export.cmd to save only one image (example: Ultimate).

You can use compress.cmd after you have added IE9, updates, etc. and Unmount /Commit the image. But do not use twice when it's done! Use only one time compress.cmd!

It's not needed to use twice => the result is the same: (example: before => 2 234 317 Ko and after compression => 2 091 057 Ko; and after another compression => 2 091 057 Ko)

compress.cmd result using twice:

If there is errors, it's better to save first install.wim image ( a copy) and after we can use (like this it's not needed to remove and rename manually the files):

compress.cmd (we can use safely twice this batch file but it's not needed)


@echo off & color 1F
echo.
"C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\imagex.exe" /export C:\Win7\sources\install.wim 1 C:\Win7\sources\installv2.wim "Windows 7 ULTIMATE" /check /compress maximum
echo.
>nul timeout /t 3
DEL /S /F /Q "C:\Win7\sources\install.wim"
REN "C:\Win7\sources\installv2.wim" "install.wim"
echo.
pause

Regards

*Edit: I will try to secure the batch file Export.cmd to not remove "install.wim" if we use twice the batch file!

the command timeout /t 3 doesn't work on Windows XP.

About Export.cmd, you can try (Like this if we use Export.cmd twice; the new install.wim image isn't removed) :

WAIK for Windows 7 must be installed!

I'll give a try a next time.

I presume this new Expot.cmd will works for both x32 and x64 (under Win7 only).

No, sorry! The command "choice" doesn't work under Windows XP! :blink:

It's needed to adapt the batch file to do the choice!

I've updated my last post!

Export.cmd given above works only under Win7!

With OS Windows XP, we can use this batch file:

Export.cmd (under Windows XP):

Have you trying to re-activate Windows 7 with slui.exe on VMWare?

I think this error can occurs because you are testing on a Virtual Machine!
