Let me start by saying windows 7 embedded standard is a bitch to install anyone that tried will understand what i mean.
I made it easy as installing any os, in fact it is a pre-installed version.
Yes it is minimalistic but yet allmost everything is in it and super fast.
Fresh installed it is 3.18 GB in size.
If you like you can install it with the winntsetuptool the regular way.
But i will describe it here as adding it as a vhd file to your regular OS.
I assume that most of you are on windows 8 or higher, only on those osses you can do this.
You can use dism for unrarring a .wim or .esd file to a .vhd file.
Let me show you in this video:
That is it you simple edit the "Image to vhd.cmd" and copy the install.esd file to the root of
your hd ( normal C: )
Reboot your computer and select your new created bootmenu entry and your new os will start to install.
Download (643 mb):
The bootmenu entry can be removed anytime when you want and you decide the size of the .vhd file with simple vhd manager.
Ps. the os will ask for a serial when booting for the first time.
Be sure to write down the included serial before starting this project.
