Hi

Windows 7 no longer uses the deploy.cab according to this guide.

Please see http://www.orbitone.com/en/blog/documents/Windows%207%20Deployment.pdf

Hope this helps.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

With Windows 7 and Vista there is no longer a Deploy.cab file on the CD and no longer Setup Manager
for creating answers files because Vista uses a new set of deployment tools (It’s all available in
the OS itself).

since Windows Vista there's used a new deployment mechanism.
The new format are Windows Images (wim files)
To cusomize the install.wim from the Windows 7 DVD you have to use the WIndows Automated Installation Kit

Sysprep.exe is already located on your windows 7 machine:
C:\Windows\System32\sysprep

Deploy.cab does not exist for Windows 7 is this for sysprep? It has all moved to Windows AIK

The sysprep location has changed to %WINDIR%\System32\Sysprep folder on the target machine

Windows AIK:

The sysprep file is used to help you create a deployable state. Since we are assuming you wish to that?
