    Hi, I'm trying to integrate several opperating systems and versions into one iso, so then I only have to find one DVD to install an OS, I'd also like to automatically install programs like AVG free and maybe office if it will fit. I have no idea how to do it, can anyone help me?

    thanks

    I think it'll be difficult to put XP, Vista and Seven on one DVD, without removing some wim image.
    You'll need one DVD9 for that.

    I'd Plan to Use Vlite on it, and get rid of language packs so it will fit on a single dvd.

    They aren't any, always single language.

    The versions I have allow me to get rid of languages and to save space in Vlite. I'd also get rid of things like various drivers that are bundled in the os's as I already have all the drivers I need.

    Copy Win7 32 dvd to c:\win.
    Copy XP to c:\win, rename start.exe.
    nlite XP
    vlite (or RT7 Lite) win7 (remove languages, they save about 400 meg)
    export wims to c:\win
    edit bcd to look for XP
    make silent apps and install them with sswpi or WPI.
    brag about your uber disk.

    If you are happy to use USB rather than DVD then look at WinSetupFromUSB on MSFN forum.

    i have 3 in 1 Multi DVD ISO with WinPE 3.0, Windows 7 (multi OEM), windows XP (integrated with massstorage driverpack & OEMSCAN addon)

    this is how it works:
    copy xp to folder (c:\win)
    copy win 7 to same folder (c:\win) (replace anything)
    copy winpe's wim file inside sources folder (c:\win\sources) (renamed first to wimpe.wim)

    open cmd & go to c:\win\boot
    type this
    Code:
    bcdedit /store bcd /copy {default} /d "Windows PE 3.0"
    it will generate new guid
    then

    Code:
    bcdedit /store bcd /set {newguid} DEVICE ramdisk=[boot]\sources\winpe.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
    Code:
    bcdedit /store bcd /set {newguid} OSDEVICE ramdisk=[boot]\sources\winpe.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
    Code:
    bcdedit /store bcd /set {default} description "Windows 7 Setup" 
    Code:
    bcdedit /store bcd /create {ntldr} /d "Windows XP Professional SP3 Setup"
    Code:
    bcdedit /store bcd /set {ntldr} device boot
    Code:
    bcdedit /store bcd /set {ntldr} path \I386\SETUPLDR.BIN
    Code:
    bcdedit /store bcd /displayorder {ntldr} /addfirst
    Code:
    bcdedit /store bcd /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu yes
    for making iso file you can use cdimage
    here's the command:
    cdimage.exe -h -j1 -u1 -c -bc:\etfsboot.com -m -o -lGRMCULFRER_EN c:\win c:\GRMCULFRER_EN_DVD.iso

    you can replace winpe's wim file with vista wim if you want
