Windows 7 SP1 Slipstream - RT7Lite a vLite alternative

Windows 7 SP1 service pack slipstream is now possible via a vLite alternative application called RT7Lite. Basically it feels and operates like vLite for slipstreaming hotfix and service packs, integrating drivers, removing windows components, tweaking operating system and creating a windows 7 unattented installation. RT7Lite can burn the resulting tweaked operating system to ISO image, burn to cd and even load it onto a bootable formatted USB flash memory drive!

There's a few neat improvements over vLite:


Official RT7Lite web site - downloaded v2.20 beta 64bit version which adds Win7 SP1 beta slipstream support.

First time using RT7Lite so not sure how much space reduction there is on non-Win7 SP1 Beta slipstream. But for Win7 SP1 Beta 1.22GB file slipstreamed with tweaks and component removal, it only ended up with 0.02GB larger final Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit ISO size than original Win7 Ultimate 64bit RTM ISO and 0.52GB smaller in size than the 3.55GB full Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1 beta slipstreamed ISO. RT7Lite definitely took longer to to run than vLite, the longest part was waiting for RT7Lite to slipstream the Win7 SP1 Beta files.
  • Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit RTM original cd size = 3.01GB
  • Windows 7 SP1 Beta ISO size = 1.22GB
  • Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit RTM SP1 slipstreamed FULL ISO size = 3.55GB
  • Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit RTM + SP1 Beta slipstream and component removal = 3.03GB

Windows 7 SP1 Beta - service pack ISO size = 1.22GB




RT7Lite used for Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit + Win7 SP1 Beta slipstreaming


click thumbnail image, use left and right arrows to cycle through full sized images









































End result, 3.55GB full Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1 beta slipstreamed ISO vs 3.03GB Win7 Ultimate 64bit SP1 beta slipstreamed + component removal/tweaked unattended ISO. There were alot of components etc that I didn't remove this time round. This is literally my first run.

Thanks Tim it's worth the effort to do it once in a while, saves alot of time when you do reinstall or installs on bench rigs.

Get to test these new Win 7 ISO in live environment sooner than I thought, as my main work pc's OS 640GB Samsung hard drive decided it doesn't want to live anymore and started dying on me, have to reinstall all my apps and transfer my data all over again

nasty 'Current pending sector count' - no longer can successfully backup image the OS partition off this disk, gives me 0x80 error and imaging apps error out around 50GB mark



Spent 20+ hrs reinstalling and transfering data to replacement 640GB Samsung hdd because i couldn't image clone the old disk due to errors.

new disk

Thanks James for the piece of info on pcmark05. Consistency in pcmark 05/vantage is always a problem.
