SWM Merger is the tool where you can merge smaller *.swm files into a larger editable install.wim.
Step 1: Select the main SWM
Click the first browse button and select the *.swm file you wish to merge
Step 2: Select your 'Output' file
Select the location where you want your new install.wim to go.
Step 3: Press start
Press start and wait for it to finish
The 'Driver Installer' lets you install any driver either from driver packs or you just have an updated driver to the computer currently installed (Live).
Step 1: Select the folder your drivers are in
Use the 'Add Drivers' to select the folder which contains your drivers *.inf files
Note: *.inf files with the same MD5 will not be added, this avoids installing the same driver.
Step 2: Click Start
Once your files have been added, click 'Start' and W7T will start installing the drivers on your computer.
Step 3: Wait
Wait may take some time to install all the drivers, so go for coffee, cup of tea or whatever you prefer. W7T will let you know when it's done.
Step 1: Press the scan button
This will check which drivers are already installed via on your live system.
Step 2: Select the drivers you want to remove
Tick the boxes next to the drivers your want to remove.
Step 3: Press 'Uninstall' and wait
Now all you have to do is sit back and wait for those obsolete drivers to be removed, W7T will update the list once completed.
The 'All-In-One Disk Creator' lets you create all in one disks, so for example you can have Windows 7 SP1 x86 and Windows 7 SP1 x64 in disk, you could further include Vista or 2008 server if you wished.
Step 1: Select your first image.
Press the 'Browse' button and select your first install.wim, you should then see all the images get lists
Step 2: Select your second image
Press the 'Browse' button again and select your second image, you should now see even more images added.
Optional 1: Add more images
You can keep hitting browse and add more and more images until your ready.
Optional 2: Delete the images you dont want!
Step 3: Press Create
W7T will then merge all of the images together, it will also try the best it can to resolve name conflicts however you may have to use the 'Edit' button and change some names to that NONE of them are the same, don't worry about descriptions, they won't conflict.
WARNING: It is really important that none of the images have the same name, W7T will try for example add 'x64' or 'x86' to the names of the images to remove conflicts, however sometimes this is not enough.
You can choose to rebuild your newly created image so that it can produce a smaller ISO.
Optional: ISO Maker
Self-explanatory, make a new ISO with your new creation.
Unlock All Editions
Usually an image is locked to one edition i.e. Ultimate, so when it comes to install you don't have the option of choosing. Unlocking them will ask you which version of Windows you wish to install after booting from the ISO/USB.
x64 Recovery Mode
This will copy the 64bit Recovery Mode files, so if something happens to your computer and it's 64bit, you can use this option.
This tool lets you remove built-in Windows packages from your image, for example Windows Media Player, Windows Media Center or Internet Explorer. The difference between this and vLite is that this tool uninstalls them the official way rather than remove files the downside is that the image does not shrink as much as just removing the files. It also lets you remove old updates.
WARNING: Anything you remove using this tool can't be undone, it is permanent!
Step 1: When you first open up this tool you will be asked to select the image you wish to work with. Click 'Browse' and select the install.wim you wish to work with and then either click on the item Windows version you want and press select or just double click.
Once done, the image will start to mount and retrieve all available packages within the image, it will not show ones which have already been removed.
Note: You may notice that this list has more than the list available in 'All-In-One Integrator', this is because in the AIO i have only included the basics, whilst Component Remover will include everything, including updates.
Step 2: Select the items you want to remove
Once all the items have been listed, you can select the components you wish to remove.
Green: Safe to remove.
Yellow: Unknown, be careful removing these
Red:This will break something, something depends on this feature but it will hopefully say what it is.
Step 3: Begin
Once you have everything selected, you can now click 'Remove Components', once done it will rescan and shows you what's left in the image.
Step 4: Save
Once done, you can go ahead and close the tool, click 'Yes' and it will ask you if you want to save the image, i recommend you to 'Save & Rebuild', however if you are going to be working on more than one image then just rebuild once you're done with your last image.
This will let you have you Windows installed unattended. It's not the most complete unattended out there but it's better than nothing.
Luckily most of this is self-explanatory, note it is recommended to leave 'Architecture' set to 'AnyCPU' which means it should work for both x64 and x86 installs.
This is where you select the most important parts of the unattended file, like your name, serial key, time zone, screen resolution, updates, Auto-Logon, etc...
The 'Users' tab lets your add pre-installed usernames on the computer, with passwords, user group, description, again self-explanatory.
It is recommended to leave this alone unless you know what you're doing, since W7T does not have full unattended features it allows users to add their own entries and save them to a file, it also allows the user to see what will be saved.
These serial keys are known as 'Default Keys', they are basically just used to make the install unattended by leave Windows de-activated and keeps the 30 day trial.
WARNING: If you use a Ultimate serial key then you must install Ultimate otherwise it will error.
You can use the 'WIM Manager' to integrate a unattended file.
