  1. Hi, The tutorial is great but I still have a couple of questions ( unfortunately my original post got no reply ) so I ask that you excuse this as its a bit of a cross post. I am very new to this having only ever slipstreamed XP by hand and do have a couple of questions intermixed with the description of my understanding of what vLite is doing below. My understanding of whats happening with vLite is as follows. vLite asks for the location of the original DVD disk for Vista and a working folder to put it in, which we provide, it then copies the files from the original DVD to the folder we specified, when done it asks us to specify the location of the service pack after which it begins extracting the service pack over the files that copied from DVD. My DVD only has Ultimate x64 on it, it states this on the top ( OEM System Builder Pack ). Thus I presume I'll only be rebuilding the one edition as I don't have any others. The next step appears to be integration and here is where my understanding falls down . Questions. When I look at the list where KB's would be there are actually KB's listed but grayed out ( i know these can be un-grayed by ticking a box ) Are these KB's the ones that vLite has detected on my current install over and above the service pack? I.E the Vista Install I am running vLite from to create the image OR KB's that absolutely everyone needs over and above service pack 1? OR KB's that were included within SP1? (this doesn't make much sense but i suppose its possible) If the KB's are the default ones that everyone should have and there are obviously many patches and hot-fixes since SP1 can I grab those somehow from my existing installed vista and put them into vLite? If so how? Sorry for so many questions but I like to understand fully what I am doing before I do it.... less messy that way. Apologies also for cross-posting ( i know its meant to be bad but didn't know what else to do )
