    Hi,
    I was trying to make an AIO that includes Windows Thin PC. I have included all Windows 7 editions [x86, x64] but when I try to export Windows 7 Thin PC (install.wim) then it gives me an error "Access Denied." I used Imagex to export install.wim file.

    I used the following command:

    Code:
    G:\AIO\IMAGEX\Imagex.exe /export G:\AIO\THIN86\Sources\install.wim 1 G:\AIO\ALL\sources\install.wim "Windows 7 THIN CLIENT(x86)" 
    Please help.
    Thank you!

    Where are the Thin PC EULA files located? In the license folder?
    Where should I place the Imagex.exe in C drive?


    I have an AIO and I just want to add Windows Thin PC image in it.
    I have the following softwares to make an AIO:
    1. RT7Lite
    2. Imagex
    3. Ultra ISO

    Thanks!!

    Yep, copy everything from license and the same from boot.wim.

    I have placed the imagex.exe in system32 folder.
    Created 3 folders named UltimateDVD, TPCDVD and mount in C drive.
    Extracted the contents of Windows 7 Ultimate to UltimateDVD folder.
    Extracted the contents of Windows Thin PC to TPCDVD folder.


    Executed the following command to mount it.
    imagex /mountrw UltimateDVD\sources\boot.wim 1 c:\mount

    But I'm not able to understand/use the copy command. It says 0 files copied.
    xcopy "TPCDVD\sources\license\*" "c:\mount\sources\license" /cherkyi

    Unmount and commit command is also working fine.
    imagex /unmount /commit c:\mount

    What's wrong?
    Should I copy the contents of TPCDVD\sources\license\ manually to c:\mount\sources\license and then unmount and commit?

    The xcopy command seems to be good. You can try the manual way sure.

    You need to use 2 as the index for boot.wim:
    Code:
    imagex /mountrw UltimateDVD\sources\boot.wim 2 c:\mount
    Yes, you can also use Explorer to copy the files, just merge the existing folders when prompted. Unmount+commit afterwards.

    Also remember to copy the files to the AIO DVD itself (DVD\sources\license).
    (The files on the DVD are used when starting setup from Windows; the files in boot.wim are used when booting from the DVD).

    Though this thread now seems inactive, but the problem raised doesn't seems to be solved. I am facing a similar problem and desperately seeking a solution, so reactivationg this thread.

    I tried integrating/exporting Windows 7 Thin PC (SP1: [1337x.org/torrent/218241/0/]) mentioned at [forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/28240-Windows-Thin-PC-MSDN-Untouched-ISO-Links] (though I have downloaded it from different locaiton but SHA1 matches, so its the same ISO) with the Windows 7 Ultimate SP1-U Media Refresh ISO downloaded from Digital River links mentioned at [mydigitallife.net/official-windows-7-sp1-iso-from-digital-river/]. But I get the same "Access Denied." error as rdb1987 (thread creater).

    So, what ISOs did you used to get it working? Were they all SP1s. Does version of ISOs (SP1 or not) makes any difference?

    I am working with all untouched ISOs in a fresh Windows XP (x86) Professional install. Do I need to do all this in Windows 7 to get it working (though I think it is not required)?

    I tried copying EULA from ThinPC-DVD\sources\license\ toAIO-DVD\sources\license as well as toAIO-DVD\sources\boot.wim\sources\license\ using following command:
    Though I could succesfully do it, but I believe this step alone is not enogh and this is just a post-requisite to exporting Thin PC image to All-in-One install.wim to make the whole thing working.


    PS: This being my first post, I can't use hyperlink. So, the post is a bit clumsy and crowded.
