Well I felt I did, but this is how I did it;Pleaase describe exactly the steps you are doing.
If you do them as written it will work.
Finally got around to looking into this and WBICreator.exe is needed because install.wim needs to be merged into the Sources folder under the Vista folder. It's not there when you run the X86 or X64 downloaded .exe file. This could probably be done manually and not use WBICreator. I wonder if there are any other changes WBIUCreator makes to the Vista folder?I admit I am not totally versed in installing and re-installing OS's as I don't do it that often. But I have been totally confused as to why you need to create an ISO and then burn the ISO to a DVD. Seems like you are just putting the files into one format, and then undoing it. As it turns out, you don't have to do that. If you go to IMGBRN website, and look under help, they have the topic of exactly how to create a Vista bootable install disk. You don't have to create an iso. You just download the exe and two .wim files from digital river (the files given in the beginning of this thread) and then run the exe file to create the vista directory. Then you use IMGBRN exactly as they say in the help topic to create the bootable dvd from the vista directory. I did this today and it works great. This saves you some steps as it is not necessary to create the .iso.
10. Output Path: Somewhere with enough free space to hold the .iso file that will be created (X64 = 3,837,112KB, X86 = 3,013,816KB).
Thanks, it is renamed that by the downloader in google chrome, as an experiment, I have tried it with both IE and Opera, at all times it is downloaded as microsoftinstaller.exe is it possible that thle linked file for download is actually named microsoftinstaller.exe, that it is a different version of the file, and / or this one is flawed? Has anyone had success using this file in the last four days?I have no idea what is wrong but there is something goofy with your computer. No way the X14-63452.exe file should be renamed microsoftinstaller.exe.
Maybe it's something to do with the anti-virus program you are using or the web browser.
Sorry we couldn't get it to work for you.
I have a 32bit Vista .iso made by SIW2 that has both service packs and all Windows updates up to 11-10-13
I will give the link to interested parties who contact me and not post it publicly
3. If they are not already there, copy boot.wim and install.wim into the Vista\sources folder that is created when you doubled clicked on the .exe file in step 2.
