[SOLVED] problem with Vlite 1.2 and Win7 SP1 (MSDN)

189 posts in this topic

I just used vista imagex and wim tweak and removed hyper-v package then vlited and installed and it worked. now on to batch files for removal. so far 5.97GB x64

was this after you used seven imagex?

Yes, I have a wim saved that I used the seven imagex on and also exported the ultimate index. I copy this over to my working folder each time to try something new. I am now removing about 60 packages to see what happens.

My understanding of what you are doing is already an export. You are using apply to EXPORT a given image number from a wim to a directory then capturing that directory to a wim. So essentially you are EXPORTING a image number like 4 for ultimate to a new wim that only has that image. Is that right?

imagex /export D:\imaging\install.wim 4 D:\imaging\export.wim

export.wim will now contain only the ultimate image. I may not understand what you are doing if this is not case.

Well I used dism to remove 60 successfully but it doesn't change the size of the installed system. I removed a few more things in vlite and now at 5.63GB.

dead0, on your removal batch how did you know what to remove from the winsxs folder?

if we just mounting/dismounting install.wim with Gimagex, it not work (after using vLite, there are corrupt files)

I have not tested it with just "export" but not sure it works

PS: dism does not reduce the image size

I just tested Gimagex/Vlite method on Windows 7 Homepremium x86. It works fine, like x64 version. Of course by using Apply/Capture in Gimagex, we select one specific image from install.wim (in my wim, 3 is Homepremium). I don't know how to apply Gimagex to all images in wim. But is not a problem, because the purpose of this action is to obtain a specific "lite version" ...

The instructions from bapt are very accurate, follow step by step and all will be OK.

Then put the folders/files to install Windows 7 in the folder "x64_sp1" (for my example)

with Gimagex, in the "Apply" tab

Source: [path to file] x64_sp1\source\install.wim

Destination: an empty folder (Mount in the screen)

select the image used for install (Home, Pro, etc ...)

and Apply

capturexm.png

when process is finished go "Capture" tab

Source: empty folder path (Mount in the example)

Destination: [path to file] x64_sp1\source\install2.wim

Name: Windows 7 Pro (in the example)

Description: Windows 7 Pro (in the example)

Compression: Max

leave the rest blank

and Create

capture2jc.png

when finished, in the [folder path] x64_sp1\source, delete install.wim and rename install2.wim in install.wim

restart PC and launch Vlite normally (like if it's Vista)

Ok, i have tested this and it works with vLite.

But since i want to use both vLite and RT 7 Lite, then what should i use first?

Should i first use RT 7 Lite, then GImageX with you're steps and then vLite?

Let me know how i have to go forward.

EDIT: While i remember it. After i have used the Apply and Capture things in GImageX, then i can't delete the folder where GImageX extracted the install.win files to. How do i delete the folder then?

@ bapt

How you get install2?

for install2.wim, you just indicate in the fields, when the. wim will create, he will have this name

Ok, i have tested this and it works with vLite.

But since i want to use both vLite and RT 7 Lite, then what should i use first?

Should i first use RT 7 Lite, then GImageX with you're steps and then vLite?

Let me know how i have to go forward.

Me, I use first Gimagex then Vlite and I finally rt7lite

if we use first rt7lite is an error message launching Vlite about the boot (boot-optimized by rt7lite and not "compatible" with vLite)

EDIT: While i remember it. After i have used the Apply and Capture things in GImageX, then i can't delete the folder where GImageX extracted the install.win files to. How do i delete the folder then?

Indeed, I have not yet to find how "unmount"

I use "take ownership" on each folder and delete the files after

i have WAIK 2.0 and Gimagex 2.0.17.0.

Here is the vLite preset(nothing special removed/tweaked,just for testing this method)

in Gimagex, Capture tab, you have indicated

Name: Windows 7 Professional (example)

Description: Windows 7 Professional (example)

??

Me, I check the box, apply to this image or something like that (to create the image) in Vlite

and installation of 7 launch directly

I do not know if it makes a difference, but I have this in last session file

; vLite preset file

;

;#Environment:

; vLite v1.2

; Framework 2.0.50727.5420

; Microsoft Windows NT 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 64-bit

;

;#Target:

; Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL 64-bit Service Pack 1

; Version 6.1 French (France)
