Hello,

I have the RTM Windows 7 SP1, and wish to slipstream this into an installation DVD.  I have the original DVD, so is there a way to copy the contents of that DVD to a temp folder and then slipstream in SP1?  I would prefer to do this without "hacks" or third-party programs.

Thank you.

To be honest, it's not crystal clear to me... but from the looks of it, it is NOT supported.  That doesn't mean you can't do it... but I cannot locate any documentation that suggests you can slipstream the SP.  However, if you have the RTM, then you must have access to TechNet, MSDN, or Volume Licensing... in which case, you can download a new ISO that includes the Service Pack integrated (I just did).

For more information on deploying the service pack, see: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff817572(WS.10).aspx

Yes, you are correct, I do have access and I have already received the new ISO with SP1 included (this is Enterprise for our corp environment).  The SP1 slipstream question was mainly aimed for my Ultimate DVD...

Slipstreaming is not supported.

Technet has a non-Enterprise DVD ISO with SP1 added in.  You can use the EiCfgRemover tool (to be found online) to make the DVD offer a menu on install for all variants of Windows 7 (except Enterprise).

I don't recommend 3rd-party tools that claim to slipstream things.  I've had problems with vLite PCs in the past refusing to install newer Service Packs.

I was on technet and did not see the no-enterprise DVD ISO you speak of.  Is there something I should be looking for?

Under New Downloads (on the right), click on Windows 7 - the list should be VERY long with it as an option.
