Thanks, i'll have a look in the morning if i get time. Try making your filepath shorter.

EDIT: Working fine for me, it must be your filepath, it looks well complicated and massive.

I'll download an ATI Driver to test. Which ATI device is your driver for?

I have two ATI 4890 card in Crossfire. In previous versions, the integration has worked. Now, do not. But to install a clean install and try again because I suspect that now DISM is corrupted

x64 or x86? Your drivers are out-of-date, you seem to have March but they are May ones available.

EDIT: I got the error too, investigating...

EDIT: Found issue, fixing...

I've fixed both problems and will be released with v1.0.2.1. However, you will need to delete the ATI drivers and re-extract/download them again otherwise it will say file not found again :)

EDIT: Released v1.0.2.1F

The latest build can integrate with the skip drivers check option pre-ticked 261/262 drivers. GREAT!!! :thumbsup_anim:

I've also seen that one of the improved features of your app is HDD Drivers now integrate into Boot.wim. Can you pleae make sure that all mass storage drivers (64 of windows 7 x86 ones) from here go into the boot.wim?

I'm asking because win 7 toolkit sees them as different purpose ones, besides SCSI, also HDC, system, 1394 or MTD ones. Thank you in advance. :D

Win7 Toolkit 1.0.2.1?(31) and Win7 Ultimate 64-bit w/SP1

Component Removal > Windows 7 Ultimate > Select > Component Remover > Mounting > ?

There are only four (4) items listed:

Multimedia

Picture Samples - Picture Samples (Green highlight)

System

Delete WinSXS\Backup - Deletes WinSXS backup folder, you will not be able to uninstall updates (Green highlight)

Windows Setup DVD

Delete "Support" folder - Deletes the Support folder on the DVD (no colored highlight)

Delete "Upgrade" folder - Deletes the Support folder on the DVD (no colored highlight)

First question: Should there be more items? I expected a lot more; especially after looking at the example on the forum.

Second, Should the Picture Samples be changed to read: Delete Picture Samples (under Description)?

Third, Delete "Upgrade" folder - should read Deletes the Upgrade folder on the DVD (under Description)?

Exited > says Discaring Image - should say: Discarding Image

All errors fixed, however you should have more than 4 items, what language are you using?

But your are in Windows 8! Windows 7 Toolkit is designed for using DISM from Windows 7 not 8!

W7T should work with Windows 8 just the same as Windows 7, i've fixed the driver issue. However some drivers in the packs actually have missing files (only a few) so they wont integrate and will may have to download Display drivers yet again but for the last time :P
