Posted 28 November 2008 - 03:27 PM
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?

"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?

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.

More specifically, a Dell OEM Vista.
I didnt slipstream it because i thought it is a SP0 disk, i could have been wrong.

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.
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.

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:
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 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.
