    You also could only service index 1 (x86 starter/x64 HomeBasic) of the install.wim and after unmount /commit copy the index 5 times (x86) 4 times (x64) and set-edition them to the other editions (would save you a lot of time, i do it after i've simplixed and sysprepped my win 7 SP1's but it also should work without sysprepping first). After offline uprading each wim you can simply export all into one and you have a AIO wim.

    Does it work without sysprep? Pending changes might cause a problem.

    Afaik, all is not language dependent, only for MSIE, it needs the Japanese LP

    I've not tried but I've had reports on my youtube channel of a successful slipstream using German installation media instead of English.

    Thanks, but that is not the problem.
    The problem with japanese is that it has completely different writing. I am using different languages myself, but I am wondering about japanese....

    Please explain the part: only service index 1 (x86 starter/x64 HomeBasic) of the install.wim and after unmount /commit copy the index 5 times (x86) 4 times (x64) and set-edition them to the other editions

    Wich are the commands you use?

    I just delete all indexes in the install.wim except the first one (starter on x86 and basic on x64) and service it (i use simplix updatepack).

    Next you could copy the serviced install.wim 3 or 4 times (4 or 5 in total) and set edition to the higher sku's:

    Example for professional:
    Code:
    dism.exe /image:x:\mount /Get-CurrentEdition
    dism.exe /image:x:\mount /Get-TargetEditions
    dism.exe /image:x:\mount /Set-Edition:Professional
    
    Next i use GimageX to set the flags and index names + descriptions (incl displayed name + descroption)

    Next i export all indexes back into one install.wim.
