How to create a custom Windows Vista Installation DVD
Edited by ELvergonzales
Using the free software vLite, you can create a completely custom, bootable WindowsVista install DVD. Remove the parts of Vista you don’t want/use, change some of thedefault settings, include Service Packs and Windows Updates, and more. Keep readingfor complete step-by-step instructions on using vLite.There are a few things I should mention about vLite before you get too far into thisguide. First, creating a custom Vista DVD can sometimes cause Windows Update not tofunction perfectly. For example, if you had installed a custom version of Vista createdwith vLite prior to the release of Vista Service Pack 1, you would not be able to install SP1(without creating a new Vista DVD that included SP1, and re-install the entire OS). Thisguide doesn’t show you how to include SP1 in your custom Vista, because the version of Vista used already has SP1 installed. But don’t worry, Digital Inspiration will show youhow to create a Vista DVD with SP1 included. And I’ll point out the step where you caninclude SP1, if you want to include it.1.
First up, download and installvLite. At the end of the installation you’ll be asked if youwant to run it. Go for it, but expect an error.
