    I have 2 copies of Windows Vista SP2, 32 and 64bit. However, they date back to 2009, so it's a pain as a technician to download over 300 MBs+ per reinstallation.

    Are there any current copies of Windows Vista SP2 with updates upto 2011? I have a 300 kb download connection, please and thank you!

    I'm going to attempt to create a custom Windows Vista SP2 32/64 OS using r7lite and slipstream the updates from 2009, 2010, and this year.

    u cant use r7lite since the software operates use dism as based, use waik 1.1 (if u want to use waik 2.0, use pkgmgr from ur dvd sources).

    note: for acrsn, for integrating hotfix, I dont think we do need to use sysprep, only need to mount the image, integrate package, unmount & save. sysprep more intended to apply cumulative update which cant integrated offline (an example service pack etc), add non integrateable update (like netframework) n so on.

    why dont you mount the wim and inject all the updtes you want to include

    like this...

    Create a new folder where the image shall be mounted. This is the image path. Now, you can mount the image:

    imagex /mount img_file img_number img_path

    With this command, you only have read access to the image. If you want to inject a device driver or a file, you also need write access. The command for this looks like this:

    imagex /mountrw img_file img_number img_path

    Once you’ve modified the image you can unmount it with this command:

    imagex /unmount /commit img_path

    "Process: Once the image has been mounted RW or applied, you need to expand the hotfix package to a temp folder such as expand qfe.msu –f:* c:temp, then use pkgmgr to apply:
    (start /w pkgmgr /n:c:tempqfe.xml /o:”c:;c:windows” /s:c:sandbox). "
