    Have you trying to use WinAIOTool v1.3 or manually create AIO by MDL guide?
    Once you done AIO ISO and convert install.wim to install.esd in AIO ISO.
    Additionally reference to read other threat "Create a Windows 7 All-in-One (AIO) DVD5 iso" on first page explained by Mr.X and IAmTheDud.

    To my knowledge, Windows 7 doesn't have any native ESD support. Guys doing this are using a Windows 8 DVD and replace the windows 7 esd file with the one therein (which is not an oficial solution). The startup process begins under windows 8 environment and reverts to win 7 after reboot.

    1. Mount boot.wim index 2 from Windows 7 (x86 OR x64) and copy ARUNIMG.dll and spwizimg.dll from sources folder.
    2. Copy those 2 dll's to sources folder overwriting the existing ones.

    This is simple




    3. Also replace the ones into boot.wim index 2 of
    a) Windows 8.1 x86 in sources and into Windows\WinSxS\x86_microsoft-windows-i..dia-branding-client_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.16384_none_401c2bae8f94fbe2.
    b) Windows 8.1 x64 in sources and into Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-i..dia-branding-client_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.16384_none_9c3ac73247f26d18

    Commit changes.

    Note:
    sources and WinSxS folders are protected with TrustedInstaller
    you need to take ownership of the files first

    Code:
    takeown /f file1
    icacls file1 /grant *S-1-5-32-544:F
    copy /y file2 file1

    file2 in the file you want to place instead file1
    and yes, you have to write the full path


    Sorry but what to do ? I did not understand how to do it ...

    There isn't any official (not homebrew) method to get win 7 to use install.esd files ;)

    Does this method kill AutoUnattend.xml? The classic bare replacement method surely does.
