Hello everybody

i would like to have little infos to do the perfect copy of Vista Lite with SP1.

1 - i understand that is basical to do SLipstream of SP1 before doin any operation (add or remove) on the desired version of VIsta

2 - then when i have my version of Vista with its SP1 integrated is possible to add driver and remove some parts like languages , Speech , Tablet PC to reduce more iso amount??If yes , i must simply use the new Vista VLite versione and "re-arrange" it...isn't it??

Thanks a lot

Bye

Hi, just a quick question. How i can uninstall the Windows Imaging driver? I used the one neo provided in the rapidshare link.

I found the wimfltr.sys in the windows/system32/drivers folder, should i delete that and also the entry in autoruns?

I am asking just to be sure.

Hey, now i has look through the topic and trying out but only fail.

I'm trying to make it with all version in one dvd!

But there is so much question and stuff i don't understand.

Could someone plz make a guide, step by step and I mean step by step! All settings and stuff, because i dont understand this?!

I have trying this;

(The copy of my Vista dvd all versions is on my computer)

1. Open vLite - Selecting on the frontpage the dvd copy.

2. Selecting the tasks - I choose to tick Integration, Tweaks, Bootable Iso -> Enable before apply.

3. Enable Hotfix and Language.

4. Leave Tweaks as default.

5. Make ISO.

6. Restart vLite.

7. Same again just with another version until I'm finished with them all.

8. Apply (Save)

(Not Rebuild All or One)

Then it should work right? :blink:

Heya folks, I have done the slipstream of SP1 and tested it (working great! thanks!) I decided to go back and install every hotfix / extras I could get my hands on, as well as some drivers. The image ended up being 5.7gb but I have dual layer disks so that shouldnt be a problem right? It should still work just as well over the 4gb warning level burned to a DL disk?

Use UDF file system for DVD..it allows to burn DVD w/ more than 4 Gb file size.

Hey there. Just starting to get to know vLite and I did all the tutorial said, but when the integration of SP1 was finished I couldn't click "Apply". The button is inactive. I thought I messed up and then I did it again but the result is the same. Only Exit and Back are active. What should I do?

Just to clarify:

"After completion, create bootable DVD or image and get your Vista SP1 installed simultaneously. "

That simply just refers to applying the change, right? It isn't literal? As in apply the change AND install it on your current host OS?

thanks

I had the same problem. Turned out it was my Avast! Anti-Virus program. I switched to COMODO and no more problems. BUT if you want to work with 64-bit Vista you have to do it in 64-bit XP or Vista.

Does anyone know if making a vLite version of Vista WITHOUT slep streaming SP1 would be the cause of a missing hall.dll error at the end//restart of an installation?

More specifically, a Dell OEM Vista.

I didnt slipstream it because i thought it is a SP0 disk, i could have been wrong.

Hi folks!

First off.... been using nLite for ages now and I think it's a fantastic product....hats off to everyone involved in the development of this and of course vLite. :thumbup

Am trying to use VLite for the first time. I understand that to integrate SP1 and component alteration then this is a two-step process, so initially all I am doing is attempting the integration if SP1 to my Vista (Home Premium).

I used the WAIK front end to copy the Vista DVD to a folder (and then manually copying the wimgapi.dll to the root of VLite).

I ran vLite and selected Slipstream option and pointed the file Select to my SP1 downloaded file: Windows6.0-KB936330-X86-wave1

It starts the integration but then appears to hang at about 25% Integrating. It has hung at this point for the last 24 hours and am not sure if it is still doing something or indeed has hung. The PkgMgr.exe Process in Task Manager is still running at 50%. I have a fairly high spec machine and wouldn't have though it would take this long.

Can anyone let me know indicative times for this initial process; or does it look like it has indeed crashed? (And if so, what's the fix?!)

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Cheers,

Gareth

I've been using nLite for years and have begun using vLite. I have successfully slipstreamed SP1 into every Vista edition and was wondering whether anybody has a workaround to get SP2 to slipstream...

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, you cannot slipstream SP2 with the current version of vlite.

The only way to slipstream SP2 is to do a reverse integration, here is the weblink which describes how to do this.

Or you can see it here:-

1. Install Vista SP1 to a secondary partition (not the main boot partition). The primary reason for this is one doesn't want all the boot associated files of that computer related to BCD and boot.ini being part of the final image.

2. Once in the Out of Box Experience (OOBE) after setup, type Ctrl-Shift-F3 to enter Audit mode. In case you're wondering what/where OOBE is, it is the part after setup where the user is setting up his/her username, password etc.

3. The system will then reboot into Audit mode and a Sysprep window will pop up. Do not close the Sysprep window.

4. Run the Vista SP2 standalone installer and let it do its thing.

5. After the SP2 setup is complete, you'll find yourself back at the main Vista desktop with the Sysprep window open and SP2 will be installed and ready to go. (Optional/Recommended): Microsoft has included a tool with SP2 called compcln.exe which can be used to remove older versions of components that have been upgraded to new versions in SP2 to save space. Once SP2 is installed, simply run compcln.exe via Winkey+R (Run command) or via the command prompt). Afterwards, from the Sysprep selection window, select OOBE, Generalize, and to Shut Down the system.

6. Boot the system into another OS install (ie. XP), do NOT boot back into the new Vista SP2 install, and run the following imagex command (imagex can be found in WAIK):-

imagex /compress maximum /flags "Ultimate" /capture d: c:\install.wim "Windows Vista Ultimate"

where d: is the drive Vista is installed on and c:\install.wim is the location to store the new install.wim. Replace "Ultimate" with whatever edition of Vista you installed and replace the drive letters (d: and c:\install.wim) with your own.

Also note that the "Ultimate" specified after /flags should be replaced with one of the following if another version of Vista is being captured:

HomeBasic

HomePremium

Business

Ultimate

7. Once the image has been built, replace the old install.wim in the Vista SP1 in \Sources\ with the newly created install.wim and then build a bootable ISO image with any burning software that you use.

It has to be noted that the above method is for a single edition of Vista. If one wanted to integrate SP2 into all the editions of Vista, you would have to follow Steps 1-5 for each edition and use the imagex /append function to build an install.wim that contains all the editions of Vista.

I get an error when I try to do this task. My vLite 1.2 stops working. I have Vista 64bit Ultimate release (no sp) on DVD and have copied it to my hard drive. I have installed vLite 1.2 to my computer. I have downloaded SP1 to my computer. When I go thru the steps mentioned here, the process starts, looks like it gets about 10% done, then craps out. The message says, "Preparing..." (for about 2 minutes), then the green bar gets to about 10%, when I get a dialog saying "vLite has stopped working. A problem caused the progrram to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

I have removed vLite 1.2, and reinstalled using a fresh download from a different mirror. I have tried from a different computer, with the same results, but at a later stage in the building process.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks,

Craig

I would suggest you use vlite version 1.1.6 as version 1.2 is kinda of buggy for some reason. If you haven't got it, just google it and you should be able download it from other websites.
