Hi there.. Right I used to do this stuff on Vista but boy oh boy, the steps AFTER slipstreaming (eg. customising properly on Vista was HELL).
Anyway to help some of the other posters::
Sometimes there is a problem with mounting your IMAGE because! The guide assumes you have 4 images, the various flavours of win7. THIS IS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE... I think if you want to play around with this, at least do this:
EDIT TO STEP 7. FIRST (when you are at step seven, you do an elevated aka run as administrator command prompt in the folder .\7XXXX32/64\source\
THIS IS ASSUMING U R WORKING ON A WIN7 OS: dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:.\sources\install.wim
THAT will give you the info of your images WITHIN YOUR particular install.wim
SO, for me I have image 1 : 7 ultimate 32 bit, image 2: ultimate 64
HENCE... I must now edit my MOUNT file with choosing image 2 if I want x64
SO, forthose who get mount problems is because liquid decided to make the default image set to 1 if your choice fails (which it would for me and for some of you, as #4 doesn't exist in my image file).
RIGHT... PLEASE figure that one out ye
SECOND: If you get errors when some package is being removed, it is not a problem (unless the package is essential)... That is why FOR NON-US version, the LANAGUAGE PACKS will FAIL to be removed (they aint there ot start with). SUch errors CAN BE IGNORED! as it just means it failed ot remove somethign which isn't there. However... IF STEP 1 applies to you, i.e. you dont have images 1-4, THEN the various clauses in the mount.bat file which use IF statements 1-4, have to be thought through.. Im sure you can figure it out.
hmm, that it.. OH and as people say, if you get can't read or acceess denied... you run the CMD PROMPT with CTRL SHIFT ENTER
was the person who did net use Administrator /active:yes ... LOL well , you should also log out and LOG IN with the admin account
Now THIS IS FOR THE GUYS WHO KNOW these apps... liquid, dead0 etc... or anyone else proficient.
I run vLite 1.2 with WAIK 6.1 (vista one) installed inside vLite... and sigh, when I do step 13! That is start vLite -> load up the image, I get a cant read name string or osmething n get two error messages and the version (or build) remains as 0.0.0.0
EDIT: AH.. sorry, forgot to
mention my build: from registry : buildLabEx : -> 7600.16385.amd64fre.win7_rtm.090713-1255
OI, fre wtf? I have ordered an en-US version lol, it is *not* french so dont ask me x
EDIT2: in the vLite preset file I have:
; vLite v1.2
; Framework 2.0.50727.4927
; Microsoft Windows NT 6.1.7600.0 64-bit
; Windows 7 ULTIMATE 64-bit
; Version 6.1 English (United States)
and also build in the image file is 6.1.7600.16385 , so should be fine... although maybe it is due to the environment 6.1.7600.0 ?
(im on the win 7 x64 ultimate Im gonna slipstream)
sigh :/ confused and wants to shed some snufs tears?
attaching two screenshots
I have the preset file in vLite... why is it screwing up??? :/ It takes for ever to load anyway, so maybe I should run WAIK 2.0 (WAIK 7?)
please help, as I probably can debug this , but only after a few hours or reinstalling versioin, playing around yaddi ya :/
