So I'm attempting to do this and everyone says it can be done but no real direction on how to do it.

I'm not trying to use grub4dos. Just the Windows boot manager.

I've tried using the Windows 7 setup to deploy the Vista image but after copying the image to the HDD; I get an error that setup cant continue.

I tried adding the Vista boot.wim to the mix and create a new entry in BCD to use that to boot.wim but then I get an error that a driver is needed to continue.

I figured out the whole licensing issue so we're past that.

I added bootv.wim to the Windows 7 sources directory and create an entry in the boot manager to use that to kick off the Vista setup; no go...

I know the Vista install is working as I can boot directly off that and away I go.

Any help anyone can lend? I know Vista is an old OS but I've got people that use it and a one shot USB/DVD would be awesome!!
