First of all.. sorry for my bad English...
 
let me ask the Question...
 
Can i integrate both images in my USB Multiboot? (I Use GRUB4DOS for boot some programs such Hirens boot, WifiWay, Parted Magic, some Linux distros, etc...)
 
But i tried to integrate both images, and never works...
 
Only i could use windows 8.1 boot.wim for install windows 7 or 8.1 and it works...
 
But when i do...
 
-Integrate Windows 7 and 8.1 images in same install.wim it fails after install...
 
-Integrate Windows 7 and 8.1 imagenes in different wim... it don't read 1 of them.
 
-Use 2 different wim or swm with different name that "install.wim"... it don't read any of them
 
-Insert Windows 8 files inside source64 directory... device controller fails
 
 
I don't know that  i can do for run it!
 
Please, help me!

BTW Hirens is warez and you'll need to refrain from mentioning it or you could be banned under forum rule #1

 

 

Im not talking about Hirens... and i don't ask about it...  :g:

PD: And the last version dont have warez... almost all Free software

 

I only ask about integrate both images...

 

 

Its really easy actually.

 

You add the Win 7 images into the Win 8 Wim

 

 

I tried it and didn't works...

 

 

 

I use http://www.easy2boot.com/ for my multiboot usb stick with a mixture of Linux and seperated Windows isos, maybe this works for you aswell?

Regarding the integration: Do you integrate any updates that may cause the errors? Do you have any integration or error logs?

 

 

I found a method.. but... i need use longed than 4 GB files, and i use FAT32.. NTFS dont boots with UEFI

We realize that you are only asking about integrating the images, which is why we are still trying to help you, ... so far. :)

But please realize that even if the software included with Hirens is ALL free software, and it might be, it wouldn't matter. We, and other boards, consider Hirens itself to be warez since it includes MS files that MS has not authorized to be used and distributed in that manner. It also doesn't matter that "everybody else" uses and talks about Hirens. We don't. Period. End of discussion. It is not open for debate here. As long as your questions continue in the manner they have so far we will continue to assist you. BUT, if it becomes evident that Hirens is in any way to blame for your problems, then that help will stop. If you try to discuss Hirens or argue about our position regarding it then you will have violated the board's rule #1. You have received your only verbal warning.  Please do not bring it up again.

Cheers and Regards

You add the Win 7 images into the Win 8 Wim

 

So you would need to update your win7 setup and test then and then ad them to your win 8 wim

 

I don't understand this....

 

I extract win8.1 x86 and x64 images and i use "All in one disk creator"... then i add windows 7 images inside this windows 8.1 install.wim

 

and put a ei.cfg inside "sources"..

But when i start setup and select win8.1 images work perfect, but when i select 7 images say me:

 

"Windows cannot find the Microsoft Software License Terms. Make sure the installation sources are valid and restart the installation"

 

 

 

what can i do??

 

Edit: i see that the problem is Win8.1 setup don't support swm files... extrage...
