Hmm it seems when trying to remove certain packages I get an error saying image no longer serviceable which is strange because it removes the previous package with no errors :S

Is it possible to do this guide (Guide 3) on a 32-bit OS FOR a 64-bit Windows 7 installation? I currently only have access to a 32-bit OS but would like to vLite a 64-bit version of Windows 7 before I install it.

I guess if it comes down to it I can install a non-vLite 64-bit then vLite the DVD and reinstall but I am trying to avoid that if possible. :whistle:

You can only vLite a 64-Bit installation from a 64-Bit host OS. So basically yes you have to be running all this from a x64 OS.

Alrighty. I got Windows 7 64-bit (non-vLite'd) installed and re-did the tutorial but when I load the "SausageHack.ini" in vLite it doesn't do anything. I even re-downloaded and copied it to the vLite presets folder but it still doesn't do anything. I tried restarting vLite as well as rebooting my laptop to no avail. :wacko:

Just select some general components that you want gone. If you open SausageHack.ini you can see the components that were intended to be selected. Good luck

Hi,

I am getting the following error when I run the command: removal64.bat packages

"The specified package is not valid Windows package."

I have extracted everything to the root of my C-drive. See the attached jpeg.

I have also attached the full output from my command prompt as a text file.

Any help appreciated.

Some people were having the same problem on Jeronimo's thread. They solved the problem by using a different version of WAIK (should be Vista SP1)

I had seen that thread and downloaded the Vista WAIK, but just realised that whatever vesion I got is not the correct one as its name does not match the name of the one in the link you posted. :rolleyes: Downloading correct one now.

Thx for that. Hopefully that will fix my problems

I'm on the vLite step, when rebuilding, vLite has a ton of pop-ups on dependencies, should I keep or remove these dependent components?

Use your own judgement really, but I recommend that you keep the ones that you aren't sure about. If you know that it's something you don't need/use, it may be smarter to just keep it.

Ahh that's great. I decided to NOT keep all of the one's with pop-ups. I'll be installing soon so I'll report what happens. Maybe those dependencies should not be in the vLite preset in the first place.

I'm on Win7 64 and I was able to install WAIK SP1 for Vista.

I'm able to build images for 32 and 64 bit versions w/o any problems, following the batches by SausageHack (c/o Jeronimo).

You might want to install Win7 FULL then run these batches. The best way would be to have a dedicated machine for building images so you can test them out.

I don't know for sure, but I think your probrem wasn't completely solved by just uninstalling the old WAIK. For example, vLite copies wimflt and wimgapi files from WAIK on first use. I recommend re-installing Windows and installalling WAIK Vista SP1 and see how that goes. I have run this from XP and Vista without problems, but just to be safe you may want to run it from a 'vanilla' Windows 7 installation :)

Would I also need to reinstall a full version of Win 7, that is, a non-vlited version, and then try again, or would reinstalling a vlited version not matter?

Thx

Hope that makes sense :)

@theKramer

it really shouldn't matter that much which version you install, but I would recommend a normal install just in case

Just an update, I'm currently almost done with user-selection interface!!! The only little thing left is figuring out why the errorlevels are being weird... oh well though. Has the new guide and scripts been working ok for everyone? :)

Errorlevels are not that problematic, you need to know how they work. It is always a greater than check (if errorlevel 1) or a lower than check (if not errorlevel X).

If you want to check on errorlevel 0:

if not errorlevel 1 ..

If you want to check on errorlevel 1 or higher:

if errorlevel 1 ...

Check the help (help if) for further information.

I'm having some problems that I can't seem to sort out. Every time I build an image and install it, towards the end of the installation I always get this error message:

"Windows could not configure one or more system components.  To install Windows, restart the computer and then restart the installation."

I've tried many different things here, including only removing one single component using vLite, such as just the sample media and photos. As long as I don't use vLite, I can install the base image fine. But as soon as I select anything in vLite and install the image, I always get this error.

I'm using x64 Home Premium. I've tried an RTM release and an MSDN release (also RTM, just wanted to try a fresh base image). I'm building the images on an x64 Home Premium install using the Vista version of WAIK.

Any ideas?
