    Hi all!!
    I slipstreamed the useful Simplix Pack into my Windows 7 SP1 iso.
    The editions I updated are: Home Premium and Professional.

    After that I deleted the other indexes with this command:
    Code:
    Dism /Delete-Image /ImageFile:install.wim /Index:1
    Dism /Delete-Image /ImageFile:install.wim /Index:3
    but, as Technet notice:
    How can I optimize the space of the wim file??
    The "/optimize" option does not work, it is an unknow command.

    And, last question, why the LAST CHANGE during install, selecting the Edition, is still 2010 ??

    I think by optimizing they mean rebuilding the install.wim (export all remaining indexes to new wim).

    ps, tip for next time: first delete all indexes you don't need, then use the simplix pack with the * option at the index selection stage and when it's finished do the rebuilding thing.

    2010 is the creation date of the original release, afaik you can only get that changed by sysprepping the images.

    Thank you Enthousiast, i didn't mind to delete the unwanted indexes before slipstream updates, instead of doing it after.

    For the LAST CHANGE DATE question, I was just curious because I saw some "modded" iso (like Windows 7 16inOne... AiO... and similar) with an updated date.
