I've just created my vLited ISO of the Windows 7 beta (7000) and I am trying to deploy into to a virtual image first, using Virtual PC 2007 SP1, before physically installing it for the real deal.
However, when the setup begins, after choosing my language, I click the "Install Now" button in the seperate window. Then it says "Setup is starting..." and after a while I get the following message:
"Windows could not collect information for [OSImage] since the specified image file [install.wim] does not exist."
It never reaches the license terms window.
I tested the original ISO I received from Microsoft, within VPC 2007, and that has no problems during setup. So it must be a fault with my vLite configuration. Maybe I have removed something I shouldn't!? Except I don't know what it could be, as the error message I receive is a little ambiguous.
Here is my preset file created by vLite:
