Recommended Posts

Hi!

Thanks for this great peace of Software.

I have a feature request to make: I think it would be nice to add a Tab for "ISO Creation".

Thanks man for the feedback.

From your log it appears that you did not start 7Customizer as an administrator. Anyway, it seems it is better to have 7Customizer in a directory that does not have spaces.

Glad it worked for you and thanks for your feedback

Hi,

could you put quote in paths please, as my win7 files are in 'd:\files seven' and your software cannot find it so.

thanks!

@theUnattender

As x-layer said, your installation source might have a porblem. Anyways could you post your imagesinfo.xml and I will compare it with x-layer's. I might find a solution for this problem.

1) the source i tried first doesn't even create an imageinfo.xml file.

2) the second souce i tried does work until i enter some changes in the tabs and hit apply, then i get the same error message as with the first source.

however the imagesinfo.xml was created:

Hi. I figured out three problems.

1. The botton "including subfoders" is useless.

2. After integrating a Chinese language pack. One can still only select English in installing selection window.

3. If I integrate updates and choose unattend without typing a user name. The installation will fail in the second reboot.

Thank you for giving out such a nice software.

@alx5962

As x-layer said just rename your folder. BTW, I have already put quotes around all the paths in 7Customizer.

@theUnattender

1) the source i tried first doesn't even create an imageinfo.xml file.

Perhaps it was not a good si=orce or maybe it was modified before.

2) the second souce i tried does work until i enter some changes in the tabs and hit apply, then i get the same error message as with the first source.

however the imagesinfo.xml was created:

Ok. From your file and x-layer's I can now figure what the problem is.

Thanks man for your feedback and help.

@chenxuwen

1. No the include subfolders button is not useless. In integrating drivers you have three options. a)Using a single inf file. B) using a folder that has the driver files c) Using a folder that has multiple drivers. The include subfolders button is for third options.

2. This issue has been discussed so many times. The languages can be selected after the installation not in the setup.

3. Of course it will fail. You have to fill the whole information for a successful unattended installation.

Thanks man for your feedback I hope this discussion was helpful.

Regards

Just a question, the most important and never asked (neither said in tutorial) : MUST WE LAUNCH WAIK AND 7CUSTOMIZER UNDER W-SEVEN ? Or can we do that under XP ?

Because i've an image disk of seven and i DON'T want install it before slipstream it.

7Customizer can be used on XP, Vista and 7.

Windows WAIK for 7 can be used on Vista and 7 only.

However you could install dism , which is needed by 7Customizer, on xp. jaclaz has posted a link to a guide that shows you how to install dism in XP (it is on the first page of this thread).You will also need imagex which can be obtained by installing WAIK for Vista.

Ok thanks. but i've seen something bad : we cannot work on iso... 7customizer need a Windows7 installation directory. So it CANNOT work on xp :)

So, without more explaination or other efficient tool (such as vlite has been...), i say i've NO way to make my own customized installation image disk of Windows Seven, without first install it.

Just extract the iso to a folder. They are many tools to extract files from an iso like winrar ,ultraiso and poweriso.
