    Windows 7 Setup does not support ESD. It's a new feature of the Windows 8 era.

    You can actually export to esd for a win7 image and sub into a win8.x iso.
    It can install from boot but it will not work in any way for upgrades.

    murphy78 already posted that he used a Win 8.x ISO with the Win 7 ESD to get this working, this can't be done with a Win 7 ISO (will fail as you already noticed).

    This is similar to my question, its just its not posted how to do it for Win 7, I want to make a up to date iso with all the latest updates and add the latest video drivers and motherboard drivers and use wintoolkit to add post install software like directx and .net 4.5 though its more important for me to have the latest drivers and updates than the post updates.

    Currently when I made my 3 in 1 64 bit disc like this, it is 200 meg too large so converting it would be great as I have a untouched disc I can add updates to monthly.

    If anyone knows, is it a case of updating the files with wintoolkit, using dism to make the install esd then puting it into a windows 8.1 folder and overwriting its esd, or do I need to copy over any more folders and if its possible to have the post install software.

    I used to want to do that too. In fact, I did it with several versions of Windows 7. Then I realized the difference between "up to date" and "out of date" was a matter of days in many cases. As soon as I got a new up to date ISO, Windows Updates had new updates, or a new video driver came out or any number of dozens of newer versions of all my favorite programs. After a few months, I realized I was constantly updating ISOs. I stopped that madness.

    Now I just keep the latest media refresh Windows 7 versions(s) as gotten via this forum and get other files, programs and drivers as they are needed.
