Before this post I read many tutorials & also read it.

 

 

==============================================
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

 

 

But I am not able to create ghost image with sysprep of windows 7 because there r two partition (system reseverd 100 or 200 MB and c: drive where windows installed) I want to make Partiton to partiton ghost Image PLZ HELP me on both x86 & x64 types.

 

 

For Your information I made windows xp ghost image with sysprep for all system included all drives. its installtion time aprox 5 min.

 

Sorry for my bad english.

no download - does it contain licensed/copyrighted s/w?

Would that make a difference to you? :unsure:

if it does that that would be the reason it has been removed.

Hi Ankur.k1991

 

 

But I am not able to create ghost image with sysprep of windows 7 because there r two partition (system reseverd 100 or 200 MB and c: drive where windows installed) I want to make Partiton to partiton ghost Image PLZ HELP me on both x86 & x64 types.

 

If you install win7 be shure to have one single primary partition created on your bootdrive.

There you install it as a single partition system. Works on both x86 & x64 types.

If you have a blank drive, Win7 will create a 100mb "system reseverd"-partition.

 

Regards T.

Well, but the file being a non-redistributable may be connected to Mediafire removal, but it could well be that the "originating user" deleted it:

 

Invalid or Deleted File.

The key you provided for file download was invalid. This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on MediaFire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or MediaFire.

Still have questions, or think we've made a mistake? Please contact support for further assistance.

 

 

Now, let's fake that it was instead a glitch in the matrix, fact is that the file is not there anymore, what difference does it make to you to know why exactly it's not in there anymore?

 

And the question I asked was slightly different.:whistling:

 

Anyway, JFYI:

The "System Preparation Assisted Tool" is GPLv3 and you can find it in the following link:

 

http://sourceforge.n...jects/new-spat/

 

Install OS in a Single partition: Boot and Windows files and it should work properly, if not use Win7 internal Sysprep located at: C:\Windows\System32\sysprep\sysprep.exe (same location for x86 & x64 OS's)

Can you provide the source code?

I don't know if this is OT, but what exactly does a tool like SPAT actually do ? Where can I find details ?

 

I've tried restoring a ghost image of (without using SPAT/sysprep) W7 on different systems. It always detected new hardware and booted fine (except once on a Intel G31 system). The image source was a Intel system, it worked even on AMD systems.

I don't have it, I'm just telling what they say at sourceforge.net page.

 

@ gbrao

 

SPAT is a good and better alternative to sysprep in XP, it give you more options.

 

I don't see a real need to use it on newer OS's, sysprep has been improved in OS's after XP.     As said in post #7:

if not use Win7 internal Sysprep located at: C:\Windows\System32\sysprep\sysprep.exe (same location for x86 & x64 OS's)

Yep :), i.e. there is a "new" SPAT hosted on sourceforge that claims to be licensed as GPLv3 BUT that only provides an executable for download.

This .exe upon execution, FIRST thing disables WFP. :w00t:

I have seen better incipits in my experience.

Of course no traces whatsoever of the GPLv3 license, nor to a way to obtain the source code.
