    Step 1 Folder Structure
     
    Step 1 is the heart of my integration's and in general probably creates an image that is about 95% "done" if I was looking for just a updated Win7x64 image with nothing else added. The remaining 5% would be the additional MS items that can't be integrated this way, some MSFixit solutions and some reg settings that need to be applied. After those we would have an image that would be updated as of that date which could be used for all your future installations  The one thing to note is that I am 100% sure that if you run that new image in its current state it would NOT completely satisfy the Windows Update when run and it would NOT pass a KUC run, which is why I use the KUC and will explain much later.
     
    More about my directory structure (this is long so be patient):
     
    My structure is actually based on advice I had received years ago when using the RVM Integrator and I have modified it further. I am a very visual person so I use color to help me and I also personally need lots of structure when doing things so all of my folders have a "logic" that works for me. At the top level I separate my "tools" and my "builds" into two separate folders and I keep those in the root of my drives. I use a single "!" and "_" to keep them at the top of my directories so I can get them easily.

     
    Drilling down further into the _7Tools brings me to the main folders I use; "!" is something I am actively working on right now, _Addons contains specials tools to make certain addons (I will explain later), _Drivers contains all my driver related items used in STEP 3, _Step-2 contains all my SFX and silent installers used in STEP-2 and _Updates are the updates used in STEP-1

     
    Drilling down further into_7Builds I have just a few folders and some simple scripts that are very important but I will talk about in STEP-2. The $OEM$ folders contain all my work that must be done in that manner in STEP-2, CPG and TechNet contain the targets that I use and they are similar but CPG is my work for a specific client, TechNet is mine, we will be using TechNet for all further discussions.

     
    OK so if your still with me were now in the _Updates folder. I actually have many folders in here but the ones that are important are the "McRip Windows 7 x64" and the "SatisfyWU" and for now we use "McRip Windows 7 x64" which is the download structure that is created by WinToolKit when using the Update Catalog feature and selecting McRip's updates which are currently the main source I use for my work. 

     
    The last folder to explain before we move on to the actual integration is the Additional folder. I use the Additional folder and the included updates that McRip offers and in order to obtain these I UNCHECK the Update Catalog Filter in WinToolKit Options-Main-General.
     
    Here is where I use my most "color" and I have actually created a legend using the top 5 folders with "_" to help me keep things in order.  I think the legend actually pretty much explains this :-)

    Description of My stages:
     
    By no means am I saying this is right or the only way it is just MY way. Ever since I started with my XP integration's using the RVM Integrator I have always done integration's in phases  Frankly it allows me to make mistakes and recover/troubleshoot rather easily plus I can reuse the various phases for development. I have also always used multiple disks to try and maximize the I/O read/write aspects of the process. Early in my learning phase I found that the more spindles I had the better my times were. This has changed with the WinToolKit and I am still testing to see what provides a good balance of speed and reliability. Currently I have a laptop with an SSD and a HDD. So here is what I do now with the WinToolKit
     
    0) I take my vanilla Win7x64 Enterprise extracted image and I have a "base" image directory that I keep on my drive and never change
    1) I have a directory that I copy the base to that I only use for MS updates and nothing else. I use McRips files and I will provide much more detail on this later
    2) After I do the updates I copy that completed integration to another folder where I apply only SFX/silent installers and anything else I want to run in that manner
    ***I always burn an ISO after step 2 and test in VirtualBox before I continue to the drivers. for me everything has to work 100% before I moved on***
    3) I then copy that directory to another folder where I do nothing but driver integration's 
    4) I copy the completed drivers 3rd step to my Tweaks folder where I slim and remove items or other tweaks and specialty items
     
    I then test my final image on real hardware using a laptop I have to test my images. I burn my image to a USB and do all my installs that way. The laptop has an SSD so it helps the testing process be as quick as possible. This physical stage is mostly for driver testing but I do catch other items as well.
     

     
    I will add more details about STEP 1 in my next update

    Step 1 Integration
     
    The first thing I do is copy the vanilla source files from "W7T_7SP1x64ent_TechNet-base" to my target directory "W7T_7SP1x64ent_TechNet-Step-1-Updates". I then open WinToolKit, and if I haven't already done it I will go to the Update Catalog, select my McRip choice and makes sure I have the latest updates. Actually I spend quite a bit of time checking and reviewing updates and I use http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/19461-Windows-Hotfix-repository and the members there to provide the support for this part.
     
    Once that part is done to my satisfaction I open the AIO Integration option and select my "W7T_7SP1x64ent_TechNet-Step-1-Updates" target. In this case I will skip the preset and start from scratch to create a new .ini I select the updates tab and then follow the same specific procedure every time I do Step 1.
    NOTE: this months update sequence changed slightly due to Windows Update showing some of the IE10 pre-req's so I added them at step 2 below in this phase, every other step I have been repeating exactly for about a year and more integration's than I can even remember
     
    1) Select Add Updates & Subfolders, select IE9 folder found in the Additional folder and WinToolKIt will properly add them all
    2) Select Add Updates, select KB2786081, KB2726535, KB2729094 found in Additional IE10ReleasePreview and WinToolKIt will properly add them all
    3) Select Add Updates, highlight and select every .msu in the _Updates "McRip Windows 7 x64" folder
    *** At this point I select the GREEN folders and items that I want to add to my image and this will vary based on your personal preference and need. RDP8.0 has one item I add in Step 1 ***
    4) Select Add Updates & Subfolders, continue to select each GREEN folder (i just do them in sequence) and WinToolKit will properly add them all. When you reach the BROWN "RemoteDesktopProtocol8.0" use Add Updates and only add KB2574819, then finish off the rest of the GREEN folders.
     
    I have now added all my updates that apply to my STEP-1.  Now at this point I actually don't run it yet because I just created a new .ini and I want to compare it to an old one and make sure it looks right and that I haven't forgotten anything. As much as this seem overly anal, each integration takes more than 2 hrs so the few minutes I take to check my work is well worth it and I have often found something I left out or wanted to change. So what I do is select Presets-Save All and then name the ini something like "STEP-1-Updates-02-09-13"
     
    So here is an example of what we have after I saved the latest Step-1 Preset and I reloaded an image and what to use it:

     
    When I load that Preset it will look like this:

     
    Here is my actual STEP-1-Updates-02-09-13.ini
     
    STEP-1-Updates-02-09-13.ini
     
    Additional Notes:
     
    I actually save lots of .ini files and I will even edit ini files sometime during the month as new updates get release. What I tend to do is wait until a week after the major release date (2nd Tuesday of the month) because that's about the time frame that McRips scanners finish and he and the others at http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/19461-Windows-Hotfix-repository have pretty much stabilized the releases then I create my new image. But we all know that additional files get release so sometime I just edit the .ini and add them that way. What that gives me is a new and updated .ini without having to really do much at all and if I want to use it as a preset for a new image I am good to go.
     
    Also If I have already completed my images and new updates come out I just open that target, add the additional hotfixes to my already integrated image and the image will be up to date. I really don't due that often but it definitely works. I have found it just as easy to use the new preset, start a new integration, go to dinner, have some wine and come back and its done, then I just run the additional steps and since they run much faster it's not a big deal... just my preference.

    I've made a small addon that will change your logon screen to what ever you want it to be.
    I've got a default logon screen which is this: (Made By Me)


    Heres some more wallpapers you can add: (Click to download .WA file)



    You can change this by using:
    1. 7zip and extracting all the files.
    2. Once you have extrated all files get your wallpaper you want to use and name it to: backgroundDefault (Your image file must be in JPG format and the size should be less than 256 KB.)
    3. After you have done this use 7zip and highlight all the files and Add to Archive (Right Click, 7zip - Add to Archive)

    4. Name the file to: SnakeCracker's_Logon_Screen_Changer_AddOn.WA and make sure its set to Ultra compression and click Ok

    5. Integrate The addon Using the Addon Integrator and your done.
    Or If you want me to make you one give me a link to the wallpaper and i'll make you one
    If you get bored of the Image you have installed no need to go reinstalling windows 7 to change..
    To change your logon screen do this:
    1. Go to C:\Windows\System32\oobe\Info\Backgrounds
    2. Make a Backup copy of the backgroundDefault.JPG
    3. Grab an image you want to use as your logon screen and paste it into C:\Windows\System32\oobe\Info\Backgrounds and rename it to backgroundDefault
    (Make sure its under 256KB and is a JPG format!)
    4. Restart and see the change!
    Works On: x86 and x64

    Yeah, computerbase, a famous german website, has such updates hotfixes packs (with only security updates), and I don't think they've asked for permission. You can see the links below, and it seems that not all code hosting from Microsoft is illegal, hotfixes are ok. xable's servers with Microsoft updates is another example. Hosting however a whole OS (updated or otherwise) is just a very different idea.

    Ok, final request list below with stuff removed form the scan. For info / reasons regarding .txt, .htm, .html and .reg files, please see my post above.
    V. Remove SoLoR server entirely. This can be the cause for this issue, and also it's offline / it hasn't been updated for ~ a year now.
    W. Make a filter for .txt, .htm, .html and .reg files and also .cmd for both servers, as the info in those is redundant / not needed / already requested (in the tweaks thread). There is only one .cmd file on both servers, install.cmd - installs McRip's main folder on online images / live systems.
    X. For KUC server - REMOVE the OLD for BAD sub-folder (superseded updates), EITHER REMOVE, or MARK WITH A RED BAR the not integratable sub-folder, and EITHER REMOVE, or MARK WITH A RED BAR the updates from the VPC sub-folder and the VMdriver sub-folder (see here).
    Y. For McRip server - REMOVE the BeforeInstallSP1 sub-folder (folder with updates needed for SP0 in order to install SP1), EITHER REMOVE, or MARK WITH A RED BAR the KB2506143.Windows.Management.Framework.3.0.CTP sub-folder (not integrable to an offline image), EITHER REMOVE, or MARK WITH A RED BAR the Not integratable to Offline image sub-folder, and EITHER REMOVE, or MARK WITH A RED BAR the updates from the VPC sub-folder (see here).
    Z. For McRip server - ADD the WU_Satisfy folder to the scan (updates needed for WU silencing when using the LDR branch).
    The red bar can have an explanation written somewhere visible, as those updates ''aren't integratable / preferably to be installed''. The only problem that will remain after implementing this last requests is the rkvroots .exe file from McRip's main folder, but I'll ask him to move it to the additional area. When all this are fulfilled, ''beginners'' in using your app will stop wasting time / ask more questions than needed, either to themselves, or here on wincert.

    I havent intergrated it into any of my builds as of yet. Perhaps over the next few days. I'll post my results when I do. I'll be following both related threads aswell. Reagrds.

    v33 didn't use dates to determine if a file is newer or not. Win Toolkit it working fine, i just wasn't expecting McRip to re-upload ALL of his files again. It's a shame McRip's server doesn't show the MD5 hash next to each file

    Please make a new category in Tweaks from AIO named Hotfixes, with the following entries:

    Also, OPTIONAL, you have two tweaks that get added by default in Win Toolkit when two updates are added to the list - for transparency and also not to forget why they're there, can you make a sub-section to Hotfixes that just mentiones them? The two tweaks are:

    Importing registry uses the same code as when addons import their registry, so if one is fixed then so is the other issue.

    compstuff reacted to RicaNeaga in Wondering about v65   
    compstuff, I'm going to use tommorow v66 and give you an answer. For me v65 was issue free regarding update & SFX integration - only real problems I had with addons. So I think v66 will be ok (or maybe v67 if Lego releases another one before tommorow).
    BTW, Lego, was my hunch about the user-added extra-tweaks (not present in the app) not beeing integrated true? I didn't have time to check it thoroughly...

    For those that want to add the .NET installer and updates to their Win7 .iso, here's what I do.
    1) Make the following folder structure on your .iso. You can use whatever folders you want, but you'll need to adjust the below code accordingly.
    %source_iso%\updates\NET45
    %source_iso%\updates\NET45\32
    %source_iso%\updates\NET45\64
    (Where %source_iso% is the path to where your source files are kept.)
    2) Put the dotnetfx45_full_x86_x64.exe file in the \NET45\ folder. Put any .NET 4.5 .exe updates (when released) into the appropriate \NET45\32 or \NET45\64 folders.
    3) Add this code to your %source_iso%\sources\$oem$\$$\Setup\scripts\setupcomplete.cmd

    @ECHO off & setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
    SET "LOGFILE=%systemdrive%\install.log"
    for %%i in (C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) do if exist %%i:\sources\install.wim set CDROM=%%i:
    ECHO>>"%LOGFILE%" 2>>&1 Found CD-Rom as drive %CDROM%

    :PROCESSOR
    :: Detect OS bit-ness on running system. Assumes 64-bit unless 64-bit components do not exist.
    SET "ARCH=64"
    IF NOT EXIST "%SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\cmd.exe" (
    IF NOT DEFINED PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432 SET "ARCH=32"
    )
    ECHO>>"%LOGFILE%" 2>>&1 System architecture is %ARCH% bit.


    :NET-Framework-45
    ECHO>>"%LOGFILE%" ......................
    ECHO Installing .NET 4.5 Framework & ECHO>>"%LOGFILE%" 2>>&1 Installing .NET 4.5 Framework
    %CDROM%\updates\NET45\dotnetfx45_full_x86_x64.exe /passive /norestart >>"%LOGFILE%" 2>>&1

    ECHO Installing .NET 4.5 updates & ECHO>>"%LOGFILE%" 2>>&1 Installing .NET 4.5 updates
    FOR %%X IN ("%CDROM%\updates\NET45\%ARCH%\*.exe") DO (
    "%%X" /passive /norestart >>"%LOGFILE%" 2>>&1
    ECHO>>"%LOGFILE%" 2>>&1 Executed %%X
    )


    ::LAST entry! All processing finished, delete used files, and EXIT::
    :CLEANUP
    IF EXIST %windir%\Setup\scripts RD /S /Q %windir%\Setup\scripts >nul
    endlocal
    DEL /F /Q %0% >nul


    In this way you can drag & drop .NET updates into your .iso whenever they're released and keep it up to date with minimal effort.
    This isn't as compact as Rick's repack, but you can keep it updated yourself as needed.

    compstuff reacted to RicaNeaga in Problem with not everything being deleted, AIO method   
    Ok. Long story: nLite was developed by a prodigy nick-named nuhi. He was later hired by Microsoft. When xp was around, and later when vista came out, administrators had come very nasty tools (very hard to use - way too much knowledge involved) called WAIK. vlite for example needs WAIK (or a slimmer version Kels uploaded here I think, I don't have the link anymore - I gave up vista ~a year ago after making me go nuts ). Later came RT7Lite that also involves the WAIK way of configuring your install.
    nlite besides beeing easy to use, and making ''kids'' everywhere become ''doctors'' in windows installation, had some breakthrough features like beeing ~ idiot-proof when it comes to removing stuff from windows or the first real AIO tool of its kind.
    Later however, don't know if nuhi had anything to do with it or not, beeing a Microsoft employee then, when Windows 7 came out, it had DISM integrated in it, a tool maybe not so versatile as WAIK, but more elegant and easier to use.
    Most features from AIO of Win Toolkit are just calling DISM from your OS to do the stuff you tell it to. DISM also has a remove features option, really not so ''evolved'' as in the WAIK for 7 version, and not so obvious in size-shrinking as that.
    Lego promised that in the future will bring some advanced vlite-like features of removing stuff not available through DISM, but you'll have to wait for them. You have one however right now, that really makes a difference when it comes to size shrinking, and its related to the natural language in 7.
    So please be patient for other removing features. However, if you think that the current ones are buggy, enumerate them (so it makes the job of Lego easier, since you have a tendency of posting long stories like this one).

    Hey, I use Universal USB Installer for every single "system-installation-to-USB" work. Sure, it's focused on Linux distributions but at the bottom of your choices there are Windows Vista/7/8 Installer options. And the drive path is always formatted into FAT32.Works for me. Give it a try and tell me what you think.
