Thanks to Flavius.



warning   Warning
Requirements:





Here's How:

Warning:~ Do not install Product key!

[FONT=&quot]1. Install WAIK on OS
2. Install Vista RTM to a secondary partition. (Namely D: with nothing on that drive as all will be deleted)
3. During the installation, once in the Out of Box Experience (OOBE) after set-up starts, press Ctrl+Shift+F3. (The computer will restart and enter Audit mode!)
4. A Sysprep window will pop up. Do not close this Sysprep window.
5. Then find the Vista SP1 installer and then ‘Run’ installer. (The standalone service pack 1 installer from Microsoft which you will have previously downloaded)
6. Run the Vista SP1 Cleanup Tool.
7. Run the SP2 installer.
8. Run the Vista SP2 Cleanup Tool.
9. Once installation has completed Sysprep window will open. Now select OOBE, Generalize, and to Shut Down the system.
10. ‘Boot’ the system into your main OS installed. DO NOT boot back into the Vista RTM you just set-up.
11. Now in the ‘start-up’ box look for the WAIK start-up file, open this up and then select WAIK 'command prompt’ and right click on Run as Administrator.
12. Type in the following imagex command below and press enter.[/FONT]


[FONT=&quot]imagex /compress maximum /flags "Ultimate" /capture d: c:\install.wim "Ultimate"[/FONT]
Note   Note
You may need to replace "HomePremium" after the /flags switch with whatever edition of Vista you need installed!
Note   Note

Where d: is the drive that you have installed Vista SP2 on, and c:\install.wim is the location to store the new version of install.wim follow the steps below:~
Now:~
  1. Start UltraISO, and select your DVD drive with your Vista DVD loaded under UltraISO's local header. Next select Tools > Make CD/DVD Image
  2. UltraISO will capture & save your DVD image under \Users\{user ID}\Documents\My ISO Files\LRMCxFRE_EN_DVD.iso (LRMCxFRE_EN_DVD is the volume label of my Vista DVD, your label may be different). Don't change any of the default settings. When UltraISO has saved the image, it will ask you if you want to open it, select yes.
  3. From the opened image, select the /sources folder and browse for the install.wim file. Right-click this file and select delete.
  4. Next copy the new install.wim you created in step 11 (should be on d: or whatever drive you have put it on) above into the /sources folder. then select and drag & drop install.wim to the /sources folder.
  5. From UltraISO's menu select File >: Save
  6. Once the ISO has been saved, make sure that the install.wim file from the /sources folder is the updated install.wim (look at the date).
  7. Now select Tools > Burn CD/DVD Image
  8. When ready, you'll have your Vista install DVD with SP2 included.

It takes about 180 mins.​
Thanks to Flavius again...​

I applied this method of slipstreaming SP2 to Vista Homepremium (32 Bit) with SP1 Vollversion with Product Key, and was successful in building sp2 slipstreamed DVD. However, I could not install this sp2 slipstreamed Vista Homepremium because of product key error; by installation I got the error: the product key is not valid for this version. Did you also experience such an error? If not, what did you do to overcome this error?
Thanking you

Important question:Is that legal version of system?In every SP X (it's without any meaning what kind of system it is 2000,XP,Vista,Windows 7) MS add some keys to "black list" which can't be never used -they were used too many times by pirates of course :p.

Sorry to hear your having a problem. Did you select the correct product whilst configuring your project. For instance you must pick Home Premium if that is the product you purchased...Also can't help you if you use naughty products...

Yes, it is a legal and oficially purchased version of Vista Home Premium sp1 32Bit. Without sp2 slipstreaming there is no problem by installation. After installation of Vista Homepremium sp1 32Bit, Sp2 can be installed without any problem It is only after sp2 slipstreaming, I face the product key problem. One needs sp2 , because without sp2 Vista Homepremium makes problem with some usb hard disks, not all but some, e.g. with USB AluDisc 500GB of OneTechnology; by plugging this hard disc to Vista Homepremium sp1 32Bit system, the system crashes with blue screen, with sp2 installed, it does not. Any suggestions!

1.It's strange.Try make slipstreamed Vista SP2 DVD without product key (not preregistered),you'll enter product key & register after installation

2.If this is some older machine it could be also problem with BIOS not fully compatible with SP2.Try update BIOS.

I'm having the same product key problem. Here's my situation. I have a group of Dell Latitude D830 laptops, all with Windows Vista Home Premium COAs. I also have the original Dell Vista installation DVDs. Unfortunately, these DVDs do not have any service packs integrated. When I installed the OS using the original DVD (without SP1 or SP2 slipstreamed), I did not have to activate the OS or type in a product key. I assume this is because the original DVD installs using the Dell SLP key. After slipstreaming SP2, I now have to activate and change the product key after installing my newly created SP2 DVD. It's tedious to activate and type in COA product keys on 100 laptops. Any ideas?

Sorry I am unable to help with your dilemma!
Flavius may have the answer to your question.


I only figured out how to get SP2 to work via slipstream and was able to put it into words, the rest was Flavius's help...:eek:

It takes about 180 mins!!!! yikes!!!!
the purpose of slipstreaming is to make it easy to do so not a 12 step process requiring you to jump through flaming hoops acting like a poodle at a dog show. surely somebody is working on this tool and will release it soon

mmmmM! Moaners!
Just use the damn thing and stop moaning. When theres a better way we'll let you know! But, it's very unlikely to be a better way as vLite ain't interested!

Do you realize what word "slipstreaming" mean? Yes it take long time but slipstreaming is art and art require time!From articles & pinned on this forum MSFN Forums -> Unattended Vista to get know what is really slipsreaming and how difficult things people to do.

surely somebody is working on this tool
Surly yes :p
and will release it soon
I'm not sure.On vLite website nothing happend vLite - Windows Vista configuration tool
Maybe others work on alternative tool but even yes it's difficult to say about progress

Sometimes I think it's pointless helping others who only moan!

It took me a long time to figure this out and you wanna moan about it. Fine! When it comes to SP3 don't bother to ask...
or even 7 Sp1

I think is possible prepare instalation disk on two partitions but it will be difficult.If you want include any programs on the same partition where will be system it won't be any problem -you can do that before using sysprep /generalize command (before point 9)
