Winsows 7 sp1 slipstream

While I do disk images may be once a month, I still would like a
slipstreamed dvd in case disaster strikes.

Anyone recommend a way that works. Google search has too many
may/may not methods.

Thanks

Glanced through it while looking around. Used N-lite for XP, but looks
like it's not for Win 7.

I used this method:
http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-slipstream-windows-7-sp1-into-installation-dvd-iso/

After slipstreaming it, I installed Win7 SP1 on a spare drive that I had,
and it worked great.

Supposedly, there may be problems down the road when SP2 comes out. Read

I did read that some people had problems with that program, but it could
have been about versions.

I don't think it's a problem with the program so much as it is with further
installations of Windows 7 service packs. I had no problems with the program
itself. In fact, I found it to be pretty slick and easy to use.

Waste of time: If you're imaging your boot drive, you certainly don't need a
slipstream to waste all your time on.

Once a month!? Is that enough for you?

Make once a week a full backup with imaging software.
And once a day an incremental.

You can automate the whole process..
And you are always up to date and save.

Forget ms windows backup, forget ms system restore.

There are even free imaging software like

Don't waste your time..

I completely disagree. That frequency may work well for you, but it is
certainly not ideal for everyone. How often you should backup depends
on how you use your computer and how frequently and how much your
files change. For example, I have a close friend who doesn't even turn
her computer on every day, let alone create or modify files that
often.

Granted that a month is a long time between backups for most of us,
but that doesn't mean that it's too long for everyone. For the kid who
does nothing with his computer but play games, it's probably much more
often than is needed. And for the person who runs his business on his
computer, once a week is almost certainly insufficient, even with
daily incrementals.
