    Hi all,

    God I cannot believe I am typing this right now..... Cos I have searched and searched, googled, even youtubed.... its probably staring me right in the face but right now i feel like giving up the ghost... I wouldn't mind it, but I remember doing one last year for a friend, and do you think I can remember....

    Here is what i have so far...
    Win7-P-Retail-en-us-x86.exe
    setup1.box
    setup2.box

    this has been run and has created a folder called expandedSetup.
    I was going to use this script to create my iso:
    oscdimg -bC:\expandedSetup\boot\bootsect.exe -h -u2 -m -lWIN_EN_DVD C:\expandedSetup\ C:\win7.iso

    as i remember this one given in the repository didn't seem to work for me:
    oscdimg.exe -bC:\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com -u2 -h -m -lWIN_EN_DVD C:\expandedSetup\ C:\Win7.iso



    but before i do this I would like to put in place this other info...
    OEM sources folder for Gigabyte Ultimate.rar
    this contains:
    $oem$ folder
    ei.cfg file

    $oem$ folder contains
    $$
    setup "folder"
    system32 "folder"
    web "folder"
    csup.txt
    GIGABYTE_version "txt file"

    I have already replaced the ei.cfg into the expandedSetup\sources folder.

    I also have the Gigabyte_GA-7N400_Pro2_(Rev_2.0)_FK_Gigabyte_SLIC_2.1_SSV3.rar

    updating the bios is not a problem, done that many times before,
    but what do i do with the file called GIGABYTE-GBT-2.1.XRM-MS, or should i say where do i place it in the expandedsetup folder.

    I have the BootImagex86.IMA ready for imgburn so no problem there.

    Could really do with a little bit of help here chaps, many thanks for any help given..

    ttfn

    extract the gigabyte ultimate archive downloaded from This thread.
    copy the $OEM$ folder to your SOURCES folder.
    you can make iso and burn with application posted Here

    P.S did you edit EI.cfg like below.

    Code:
    [EditionID]
    Ultimate
    [Channel]
    OEM
    [VL]

    Thanks chaps for your explanation, just got a couple more queries?.
    Yes chaps, I did copy the ei.cfg from the gigabyte folder.

    Yes this is where the gigabyte rar file came from:
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/12785-7-Oem-Sources-Folder-Project,

    but where about's do i place the GIGABYTE-GBT-2.1.XRM-MS file from the Gigabyte_GA-7N400_Pro2_(Rev_2.0)_FK_Gigabyte_SLIC_2.1_SSV3.rar?.



    like the image creator will probably give that a go.


    Thanks for all your help chaps.....

    Forget the GIGABYTE-GBT-2.1.XRM-MS from the bios modd the .XRM-MS certificate is already present in the $oem$\$$\system32\oem folder. just add the $OEM$ and EI.cgf file to sources and make make iso and burn thats it. :)
