Fujianabc present an very easy approach to install Windows 7 NT 6.x fast installer
basically it's simply applying the windows image from install.wim and generating the boot files.
He also discovered that the drive letter of a Windows 7 image can be (opposed to Vista) easily changed.
So I have added that way of installing to WinNTSetup.
For the driver installation:
Every driver added in NT6.x windows will be added to the driver store.
So it's not recommended to add countless driver, but rather more really required ones.
NT5.x massstorage driver integration is possible thanks to Mr dUSHA powerful MSSTMake.exe tool
To the Unattend option:
It's possible to use an unattend.xml to run the Setup unattended.
But as the actual WinPE Setup Phase isn't effective in that way of install, all Winpe related settings inside the unattend.xml
won't be applied.
Ini config file
It's possible to save all GUI-settings to a ini file:
push Ctrl + S to save all settings to an ini.
push Ctrl + L to load all settings from an ini.
A WinNTSetup.ini file in the same dir as the app itself will be loaded automatically at startup.
It also can be selected via command line:
more command line options
To install Windows in a VHD file:
- requires Windows 7 as OS and Windows 7 Ultimate, Enterprise or Server 2008 R2 as Source
- create a partitioned VHD and assign a drive letter (push Ctrl + Shift + V to use build in diskpart wrapper for this)
- select the VHD drive as installation drive (make sure you boot drive ist a active primary partition on a physical disk)
