    I'm really interested in trying to integrate Microsoft's Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DaRT) into the Windows 7 install ISO. The standard way of doing this is creating a Recovery Disk (PE), the difference being that it has the added options for DaRT which gives you 14 very handy tools for troubleshooting your own problems with Windows 7 and end users.

    I just recently discovered MDOP as I was browsing TechNet because my Subscription expired and I missed out. Lucky for me I didn't have to wait for MSDN because I found it here from you guys. When I troubleshoot an end users PC I have a plan with a specific process. A set of disks, Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise, Recovery Disks for both, Office 07, 10, 13, and troubleshooting programs on a CD. If my plan works, I can do all of this and way more on 1 disk and possibly a USB drive.

    So far everything is going according to plan. After I finish with Windows 7, I plan on doing this to XP and up as well along with Office 03 to 13, and maybe some anti virus programs. The only thing I need now is to figure a way to integrate DaRT 7.0 into the installation disk so I can use it as a recovery disk also. The plan goes as follows:

    Step 1: Have a Windows 7 ISO
    Step 2: Have DaRT 7.0 installed
    Step 3: Integrate both
    Step 4: Burn the disk and test by installing Windows and using the "Repair my computer" function
    Step 5: Get a USB Drive ( Patriot Spark 64GB USB 3.0.jpg ) and download XBoot
    Step 6: Test XBoot with a Virtual Machine
    Step 7: If successful then repeat the process with XP-8 and add any other programs as needed.

    Windows XP Pro 64-Bit
    Windows Vista Ultimate 32-Bit
