Hi!

There is a bug when recompressing install.wim files with vLite. vLite extends the EditionID Flag (/FLAGS "EditionID" parameter for imagex.exe) of the resulting install.wim with the string "(vLite)" - which makes these files work for every deployment option except for making an unattended cd/dvd.

If you want to use the install.wim with the setup on a DVD you have to adhere to some standards set by Microsoft vor the EditionID:

/flags "EditionID"
Specifies the version of Windows you are about to capture. The /flags value is required if you are going to re-deploy a custom Install.wim with Windows Setup. The straight quotation marks are required. This flag is not required if you deploy the image by using ImageX. Valid EditionID values include:

HomeBasic
HomePremium
Starter
Ultimate
Business
Enterprise
ServerDatacenter
ServerEnterprise
ServerStandard


For the moment I help myself with a hex-editor and changing the stuff back to what I need in the install.wim, but it get's tedious if you have to do it over and over again.

Maybe you could implemt an option to make DVD-Installer compatible files in the next version.

Thanks!

I thought that it checks for the ID in the image title, not description.

Thx for the info.

While on this subject, how does vLite determine the edition, and therefore the features, of a particular image? When using a wim with more than one ultimate image (for instance), vLite refuses to recognise the edition of the other images - even when they are exact duplicates including the /flags parameter. Therefore, features paricular to that edition can not be selected for removal.

I don't understand the question...you select which image to edit, why would it edit others too?
People also usually have one CD-Key thus rebuilding the image with only containing the selected OS is recommended.
