Here I document the steps that are needed to create a Windows 7 installation media that contains all retail editions of both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the operating system. You’ll need original retail DVD media of both versions. It doesn’t matter which edition your’re using, since all Windows 7 DVDs contain the same installation image. You also need a Windows 7 installation with about 10GB of free disk space.
Download and install WAIK for Windows 7.
Start Deployment Tools Command Prompt as Administrator. All subsequent commands are typed in the command prompt.
Create the following directory structure holding the installation image remastering data on a disk that can be used as scratch space. I’m using
d:\aioas the base directory.
md d:\aio md d:\aio\build md d:\aio\temp
We use the 32-bit edition as basis for the image due to the reasons described in detail in the article referenced above. Insert Windows 7 32-bit installation DVD into the drive. I’m using
g:\as the DVD drive letter in this listing.
Copy the content of the DVD to
xcopy /e g:\ d:\aio\build
ei.cfgfile in order to unlock all editions.
Eject Windows 7 32-bit installation media from the DVD drive
Insert Windows 7 64-bit installation media to the DVD drive
install.wimfile that holds the installation image to
copy g:\sources\install.wim d:\aio\temp
Now we can use
ImageX tool to integrate 64-bit editions from the 64-bit installation image with the 32-bit installation image.
imagex /export d:\aio\temp\install.wim "Windows 7 HOMEBASIC" d:\aio\build\sources\install.wim "Windows 7 HOMEBASIC 64-bit" imagex /export d:\aio\temp\install.wim "Windows 7 HOMEPREMIUM" d:\aio\build\sources\install.wim "Windows 7 HOMEPREMIUM 64-bit" imagex /export d:\aio\temp\install.wim "Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL" d:\aio\build\sources\install.wim "Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL 64-bit" imagex /export d:\aio\temp\install.wim "Windows 7 ULTIMATE" d:\aio\build\sources\install.wim "Windows 7 ULTIMATE 64-bit"
Finally, you can remaster the installation ISO image using
oscdimg -u2 -bd:\aio\build\boot\etfsboot.com -lGRMCULFRER_EN_DVD -t7/14/2009,12:26:40 d:\aio\build d:\aio\Windows_7_Retail_AIO.iso
Now you have the final ISO image of the Windows 7 AIO installation media in the file
d:\aio\Windows_7_Retail_AIO.iso. You could burn it to a DVD or create bootable USB installation stick, or what ever.
