  1. I've used Win Toolkit/AIO Intergrator to create and successfully install updated 64-bit Win7 SP1 Pro in the past, but this time every single attempt has run into an infinite failed installation loop. What I mean by that is that the installation will fail for some unknown reason late in the install process such that it tells you to restart and try again, except that the exact same failure occurrs every re-try attempt. Naturally, I wasn't so nuts that I just kept on trying, but instead after each failure I removed yet another element from the AIO Integrator preset settings and rebuilding again from scratch (careful to erase the working install folder and then re-load it from the Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit SP1-U - Media Refresh edition ISO). I've repeated this now SEVEN TIMES and the failure loops still continue! Obviously so, since I can find no meaningul indication of exactly what went wrong, so there's nothing left for me but random trial and error. Which is obviously not working! So what I'm looking for is some guidance as to HOW to determine EXACTLY what went wrong with the install. Looking at the only post-install failure log files that show some kind of error has been zero help because the error message(s) are hopelessly vague. For instance, from the C:\Windows\Panther\UnattendGC directory, here is the contents of 'setuperr.log': 2015-04-13 02:59:54, Error [windeploy.exe] Setup.exe failed, returning exit code [0x1f]2015-04-13 02:59:54, Error [windeploy.exe] Failure occured during online installation. Online installation cannot complete at this time.; hr = 0x800040052015-04-13 03:01:06, Error [windeploy.exe] Setup.exe failed, returning exit code [0x1f]2015-04-13 03:01:06, Error [windeploy.exe] Failure occured during online installation. Online installation cannot complete at this time.; hr = 0x800040052015-04-13 03:02:11, Error [windeploy.exe] Setup.exe failed, returning exit code [0x1f]2015-04-13 03:02:11, Error [windeploy.exe] Failure occured during online installation. Online installation cannot complete at this time.; hr = 0x800040052015-04-13 03:03:23, Error [windeploy.exe] Failure occured during online installation. Online installation cannot complete at this time.; hr = 0x8007000aHow utterly useless! How am I supposed to know how to fix whatever it's complaining about? What's worse, I don't even have any idea if that error message is at all relevant to what I'm trying to do! For example, I did NOT want an unattended install. But maybe that's the default for AIO Integrator, I don't know. Is it? I've read a few posts concerning exit code [0x1f], but I couldn't decipher enough of the techospeak to learn anything at all useful to me at the level of Win Toolkit/AIO. What the hell am I supposed to do about it? Little help, please?
  2. I'd like to know if there are any known problems or limitations with using Win Toolkit to create a Windows 7 DVD with all the post-SP1 updates for use during a Repair Install. Every attempt I've made so far at performing a Repair Install with a Win Toolkit-generated DVD for post-SP1 64-bit Window 7 Pro has failed with the spectacularly useless error message "Unknown Error" when it reaches the very last steps. Please understand that I'm NOT asking for help with that "unknown error" here! I know this isn't the correct place for that. I'm just wondering if there's some reason why trying to perform a repair install with a Win Toolkit-generated DVD was wrong-headed in the first place... Thanks!
  3. Woo-hoo! That did it, all-wise sir bphlpt! :albert: So please accept this newbie's considerable gratitude! On my own, I doubt I'd have figured it out. Great place you have here! Take care... Actually, no. .NET 3.5 is included in Win7, but not 4.0 or 4.5. (You can add either one you want, if either, but not both, since 4.5 completely replaces 4.0.) The easiest way to add whichever one you want is to use an installer or addon that is already updated with all the available updates, such as this one, or this one, or this one. They are made to install on an already installed OS, or at least after first log on. As a newbie, you might be more comfortable with this one, which is made specifically to be used with Win Toolkit, but Win Toolkit can be made to use any of the others as well, if you prefer. I know Rick's are all up to date, but I'm not positive about the other one. Good luck! Cheers and Regards
  4. Well, after examining the logs myself, it seems clear that the most likely culprit is that .NET 4.0 was not properly installed (lots of error messages to that effect). Or at least not correctly installed prior to when it was needed duing the install process. So the question is why the installation process either didn't install .NET 4.0 correctly, or didn't recognize that it was correctly installed. Surely .NET 4.0 was already part of the SP1-U ISO and doesn't need to be installed as one of the post-SP1 updates, correct? I downloaded the standalone .NET 4.0 installer, but I have no idea what to do next. Any suggestions? Thanks
  5. Thanks, bphlpt, for your hepful reply (and I apologize for my gaffe)... Cheers to you, too!
  6. I'm a total newbie with the Win Toolkit and the All-In-One Integrator, and I only found this site after much searching for something akin to nLite for Windows 7. I'll jump right in to my problem description, but if you'd like to read some background info, I've included it at the end of my OP... Here's my problem: I want to install 32-bit Windows 7 Pro SP1-U onto an empty and unallocated but pre-existing NTFS partition (The target machine does not support UEFI). The AIO Integrator worked fine the second time I ran it (after the first time I noticed some error log files in the Logs directory complaining about an index overflow trying to integrate a set of Adaptec UltraSCSI 320 drivers, but that's a separate issue and for the second run I simply excluded it from the next run). When finished, I created an ISO file and then burned it onto a DVD. The first phase of the install went fine. After the first reboot, everthing seemed fine until after a while I got the message: "Windows could not configure one or more system components. To install Windows, restart the computer and the restart the installation." Since I couldn't find anything here telling users how to troubleshoot such problems, I figured I was pretty much on my own. So I booted up my trusty [troubleshooting disk], and browsed around the partially installed Windows 7 system looking for some failure logs (I had no idea what logs to search for or where to look, however). After more searching trial and error, I found some logs below the directory named "C:\Windows\Panther". I've attached and uploaded those logs, along with my AIO Integrator settings file, into the file LogFiles.zip. Included is an error log related to WIA, a file named setuperr.log, and another named setupact.log, and some others. I hope those files will be useful to anyone who would be kind enough to help this newbie figure out what to do, or NOT do, to avoid the problem and install Win 7 correctly. Thanks in advance for your assistance! :please: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here's the background info I alluded to above... I must admit that I found nothing here that would help a true newbie like myself to start the process from scratch. The biggest puzzle for me was finding the eqivalent of OnePiece's splendid update packs (but for Win 7), but after much trial and error searching, I finally found Windows Updates Downloader and it's page of update links. But even after finding that site and downloading the update file, I could find nothing that told me what to do with that file! Out of desperation and trial and error, I tried double-clicking the file and then viola!, I could finally get the updates. One brief question before I move on to my problem: Are you supposed to start the AIO Integrator with a completely non-updated Windows 7 (as opposed to SP1, etc) ISO image, or is it okay to start with, say, an SP1-U ISO?
