Win7x64 Home Premium with updates - 8.6GB ISO?

Recommended Posts

I've spent a whole day trying to make a slipstreamed Windows 7x64 ISO with Wintoolkit. The actual integration of 200 odd updates seems to go fine over 2hrs 20 mins.


But the Wintoolkit ISOmaker always produces a huge ISO : 8.6GB, from 4.3GB files in the working folder. And choosing to rebuild the image or not makes an ISO exactly the same size!


I started with a Windows 7x64 SP1 ISO, and I've followed the instructions here to integrate updates. http://www.wincert.net/forum/topic/12103-16-juin-2015-update-list-gdr-pour-windows-7-sp1-x86x64-fr-en-de-es-it/page-1

I've been using the latest Wintoolkit


Is there something I could be doing wrong? I am at my wit's end.

This is abnormal. Do you integrate something else than the updates from the UL ?

We need more details to help you, please post your wintoolkit's log, and add the maximum of details.

Thanks for your reply mooms. It inspired me to have another try, and this time the final ISO was 4.3GB. This time I used Wintoolkit to extract files from the original Windows 7 SP1 ISO.


Previously I had used Windows 8 to mount the Windows 7 Sp1 ISO, and copied those files into a folder for Wintoolkit. Maybe that created the problem?


Just to answer your question, I was only using the updates from here, plus the Slim Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 Full x86/x64.

Glad you have found a solution.

I use VirtualCloneDrive to mount the win7 iso and I copy the file to a folder, it always works.

I don't know about windows 8, I don't use it on my main system (only my tablet, and I don't mount iso).

I too had that problem however I am also integrating Office 2010. With the lastest win 7 updates from June 2015 I have now gone over the limit even for dvd+r DL. I had to take out office and install that separately. was considering the bootable USB option but not every computer will boot to a USB device (still!). next option was using a blu ray bd-r. I could hook up a bdrom player temporarily just for the install but if I have to install to a laptop just about all laptops do not have a blu ray player. some win 8 laptops don't even have any dvd player. regards...

      What's the difference from normal and OEM version of Windows 7 ISO?
    • By Ayy
      So this is the problem. I download and run the Windows ISO Downloader , version is up to date (6.02) . Whenever I pick any other windows option besides windows 7 , the tool greys out and crashes. 

      I have went through the FAQ's and I do not have the lines in the HOSTS file that should be removed, I disabled adblock when downloading, I have turned off firewall , I do not have an antivirus program installed. TLS 1.2 is enabled. I started the tool as administrator and have IE 11 and .NET framework 4.7.1 installed

      Hello Everyone,
      I would like to download the ISO file of the windows 7 professional N x64 version with the Windows Iso downloader tool. But I cannot find it.
      If I go to the windows 7 file, onlw windows 7 SP1 / SP1 OEM is available.
      I check in the Hash Archive and I can find the data of the version easily:

      Am I doing it wrong or is this release currently unavailable?
      Thank you very munch in advance,
      I wish wou a great day.
