==============================================
Create Windows 7 Ghost image to use on all Computers
==============================================
Hi all

This tutor is for complating my other tutor (Creat XP ghost image working
on all computers).
Hope will be some help for Dear users and hope we will see more exprements
in tutorial page of great BootLand.
---------------------------
Notes:
-------
1.I have used windows 7 Ultimate v6.1 build 7600 for this tutor and installed
it in 7.5GB virtual HDD.(Windows 7 needs at least 7.5GB space to work properly)

2.I love windows XP (specially sp2) and i have not worked by windows 7 very
much and have little exprements by that.So in this exprement i just made
some small customization and istalled few small programes befor syspreping
it.

3.I made this tutor by virtual machine (VMWare) and then i applied the
result ghost image to drive C: of my real computer,and it worked perfect.

4.Do not forget that when you get ghost image of a drive,you should restore
that to a drive that is at least the same size of ghosted drive.if you use a drive
smaller you may encounter by problems.

==============================================
Needs:

1.Installed windows 7 in drive C:

2.SPAT 6
http://www.mediafire.com/?zumzhnmmljg
==============================================

1.Inside windows 7 that is installed in drive C: ,Extact SPAT 6.0.exe to your
desktop and run it.

2.For few seconds you will see a message "..testing system....,then if the system
was as the SPAT wants,The main window of SPAT will be shown.(This windows shape
is different from the same window when you use it in XP).

3.across main window you will see a message box as picture(A),OK it.

4.There are few options to select in different tabs of the main window ,for first
try do not select any option in any tab and just click on "sysprep" button on
general tab.

5.After less than a minute (in my test),it will do the work and will be closed.

6.Restart computer and boot by 3rd media and get ghost image of drive C:.for this
purpose i have integrated ghost32.exe v11 to my winbuilder LiveXP and booted by
that .

7.I have made ghost bootable DVD that can automatically restor ghost inside DVD
to Drive C: of computer.
==============================================

Thats all

Hi Dear jamal

1.Thanks for all your topics,all are good and understandable tutors.

2.For your question i need to say some points to you and some other
friends that reported the same problem to me by messages and posts:

_I do not know who has made this program.

_I have seen that in some none english sites,tried it and saw that
it is very useful application,so i just shared my exprements to all.

_I checked the file by Antiviruses like Kaspersky,AVG and Avast and
some others ,they do not see that virus!!!
But it is known as virus by some others like ClamWin antivirus.

_I really do not know that it is virus or not,any way i can desid just
for my self.I like it,i did not find any bad behaviors from that in the
computers that i have used that (More than 50 computers).

So Use that by your own risk

Dear jamal
After seeing your notes i searched web pages for mor informations
There are no information about the virus you mentioned unless:

Kaspersky says not-a-virus:RiskTool

and other tools and reports are talking about changes made by that
in theme files that i can not accept that as being virus activation
because the SPAT does some modifications in icons and themes of
the system (That is author's favorite).

No where is talking about problem caused by that and mostly they just
think it is virus
One more notes:
--------------------
My exprements say that antiviruses are not right all the times !! why??
For example i have made an small exe file in my unattended XP CD
that any time i am in a hurry by clicking on it ,it turns off the system
rapidly.it is not VIRUS but some antiviruses for example AVG say it is virus.
it is good to accept antiviruses recommandations,but they are not right
all the times

Thank you Shirin, yes I agree with you there are what they call False Positives, means sometimes anti-virus programs alerts for suspisious activities like you mentioned with that EXE file you've created to shut down your pc,,any way I use Microsoft Security Essentials anti-virus, and in the options I made its behaviour so agressive, but if you do not see any wrong behaviour with SPAT in all the pc's you worked with then I have to ignore the anti-virus alert this time..thank you again for your wonderful tutorials and work. :cheers:

Hi Shirin Zaban,

Thanks for your tutorial. :unsure:
But is there any SkyDriver/EasyDriver or similar driver packs to use along with SPAT under W7, just like what you wrote about XP ghost image tutorial?

Thanks

Hi ccuappz

I have not seen the same drivers to work the same way for windows 7.

Of course there are DriverPack that has almost all drivers needed for
windows 7,But i do not know how to use that by SPAT.

Thanks for the prompt reply. :unsure:

I don't have W7 yet, does this SPAT have the "Run before mini-setup" option under W7 too?
Maybe we can replace EasyDriver with another tool which summons driver integration process.

Thanks Shirin Zaban,

Just another question: :unsure:

Apparently it shows different tabs than when running it under XP but what's this "For Windows XP/2003" thing in the pictures?
Do you think it's designed for W7 too, is it safe to use it?

Which version have you used for sysprep? SPAT 6 Beta 2? or latest Beta 5?

TIA

yes,it works for windows 7 and I have tested that (i have tested bet 3 for making this tutorial).

SPAT beta 5 is ok too,of course beta 5 is better and has fixed some bugs and also added some
more options,for example you can select one of 3 modes of setup process.
I mean you can select what kind of setup to have after restoring:mini setup ,windows 7 like setup,
or some thing like XP's normal setup (Of course for windows XP).

hope can be some help

shirin zaban


the 3 setups option was already there in beta 3 i guess , unless i am not mistaking .
beta 5 , added some major RAID drivers and updated the old RAID drivers. and some minor bugs were fixed.

They are just about the graphical interface and basically do the same job but with different GUI, am I right?
Which mode should I choose for W7 ghost image?

I used Mode 1 (Inherit the classics) for XP image before with success. :unsure:

As i remember ,SPAT in windows 7 does not have mode selection.

And in windows xp ,no different in mode selection ,the result is the same.

How does the MMPC name different malware?
The naming standard used by the MMPC can contain some or all of the following components:

Posted Image


VirTool:Win32/Killwifip.A

VirTool :
Tool
A Tool detection is used for software that may have a legitimate purpose, but which may be abused by malware authors or attackers. A Hacktool detection is used for tools that have been designed more explicitly with malware authors or attackers in mind. A Virtool detection is used mostly for malware components, or tools that perform malware-related actions, such as rootkits.

Win32 :
Win32 Windows 32-bit platform

Killwifip.A
name


spat behavior like a virus. But not virus
