HOWTO: Windows Vista x86 and x64 in the same DVD

77 posts in this topic

The product key listed in a unattended install file decides which version to install. In this .wim, with combined 32bit and 64bit builds, does it still automatic pick the right vista version according to the key?

Any ideas? Or should I just test it next monday ;-)

I tried this method with images where SP1 was integrated and when I choose not to insert a cd-key I get an error that the list of editions can't be loaded. Only when I insert a serial for a specific edition in the image it works. Anyone knows how to fix this?

when you add all vista and server 2008 editions together, what is your overall install.wim filesize? my one goes well over 5GB - this then cant be burnt to a DVD.

sorry, I meant that my iso file is more than 4.7 GB. But DVD discs are 4.7GB. Is it possible to get DVD discs with more than 4.7GB storage?

Thanks

I got a question on this, when doing your export how does it know to append to the existing image instead of just overwriting them?

Just a a little tip: your install.wim cant be bigger than 4.2 gb (about the size of a dvd). I tried to intergrate all setups onto one dvd (server 2008,x32,x64 and vista x32,x64), and everything worked fine, but when i tried to install, the installation failed. So, you must use vlite if you want to have it all...

Just a small tip :thumbup

Well, seeing how little information is around in the net about this topic and seeing there's some interest in this topic I decided to write this little guide to accomplish this task. Hope it helps. ;)

....

Does NOT WORK for multilang & autopatched VERSION!

You need to use vista build 5252 or older bootmgr & boot.ini !!!

Hello Everybody,

Did anybody try to do the same thing with Vista SP1 (x86 & x64)? I try do as indicate in this guide (thanks chon).

I've merge the content of Vista SP1 x86 and x64 in a single install.wim file :

(Windows Vista Business x32 and x64, Windows Vista Home Basic x32, Windows Vista Home Premium x32 and x64, Windows Vista Ultimate x32 and x64).

Here is a capture of Windows Service Image Manager when I open the file i've generated (install.wim) if i want to generate a .clg file for each install :

WindowsSystemImageManager.th.jpg

Here is the size of my install.wim file :

installwim.th.jpg

If I generate the clg (catalog) file (one for each installation) with Windows Service Image Manager (Tools>Create a catalog ...) or not.

Here is the isofile creation :

isofilevistaAIO.th.jpg

IsoFile size :

vistaiso.th.jpg

I stay stuck at this point when I press the Next button (suivant) :

virtualpczo1.th.jpg

I can't see the menu for choose which Vista Edition I want to install (when I don't put my serial).

Did any one have meet this. And have a fix ? Any Help Will be appreciated.

P.S. : Here is the list of tools i've used :

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=fr (WAIK 6001.18000.080118-1840-kb3aik_fr.iso) for Windows Vista SP1

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=fr (Virtual PC 2007 SP1)

Thanks for your help Neo !! That's crazy it's like in the Matrix Movie!

I've made as noticed on the site you gave me ...

isofilevistaaiobiswn0.th.jpg

The result is the same :

virtualpczo1.th.jpg

I've also tried to type the licence for see if i can go further, but I stay stuck at the same point.

What is the importance of the .clg file? The link you gave me don't talk about these file, i'm astonished. Why did Microsoft put them on the DVD if it's useless ?

Here is the information about the install.wim file i've generated (from WinPE Command Line tool) :

c:\VistaAIO\VistaSP1x32x64\sources>imagex /info ./install.wim

Hi Everybody,

Still diggin' about these CLG Files stored in Vista DVD.

Here are these files in Windows Vista DVD x32 :

thumbnmail.png

Here for Windows Vista 64 :

thumbnmail.png

Here for my custom install.wim (contains Vista x32 and x64) :

thumbnmail.png

How to generate your .clg file? That's easy : Download WAIK from Microsoft then with the software called WSIM (Windows Service Image Manager)

CLG-WSIM.th.jpg

Go to Tools menu > choose in the list Create a catalog ... and Then choose Image file (install.wim) you've generate before (as you follow chon_ guide).

It takes between 10 up to 25 minutes ... for each catalog creation.

Still waiting for help about these problem :

Thanks ...

See U. Joe

PS : sorry for missing thumbnails .... (click for see capture)

Hi guys I tried this on vlite created vista ultimate sp1 32bit and 64bit iso base files but imagex info for both sources install.wim so index 1 as i only set vlite to extract ultimate edition for both iso bases.

Now question is how do i confirm, the 64bit wim is merged into 32bit as i ran info on both install.wim after the merge command and they remain same as before ?

thanks

Are you using single or dual-layer DVDs?

On a side note, has anyone tried integrating the Vista Enterprise DVDs (both 32 and 64-bit) into one installer? Same instructions, except you're actually merging four DVDs (retail 32-bit, retail 64-bit, Enterprise 32-bit, and Enterprise 64-bit) instead of two.

EDIT: I've done so recently, and it works great!

10 different Vistas (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate x86 and the same five x64)--all install just fine!
