@scarface: Yesterday I did a custom Win 7 SP1 and install.esd size is 2.2GB and 3.3GB in standard wim container. I updated winre.wim file to latest updates along with boot.wim files.
3.3 Gb? You must have made a serious clean sweep.
2.2 GB? I read several times that the esd conversion was only possible with windows 10. Is it working? Is there a new boot.wim to handle this? This is pretty interesting if I want to make a smaller windows 7 release.
Yeah I also saved custom boot.wim fully integrated as per Harkaz guide. Mind you, I forgot the VM part so if I followed that the ESD would have been much smaller. My ISO has updated winre.wim trimmed to 320MB using Harkaz cleanup guide(WinSxS). Rebasing compressed the test OS image to 16GB as opposed to 20GB. I used Simplix to update install.wim. Use NTLite for ESD compression or Gimagex for Xpress64k with better compression with slow speed.
Harkaz's guide for a "custom boot.wim fully integrated"? where? I must have missed sth. For the pb of compatibility what did you do? it seems a solution was found here:

For the esd compression I know I can use ntlite or dism...

I assume you were referring to this message: http://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=991.0
But the links are not valid any more.
Actually I found an old tutorial of harkaz here: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/guide-integrating-windows-7-post-sp1-updates-to-installation-disk-64-bit.42163/
But I find it's a bit hard to understand it.
For my own windows 7 and 10 versions, I have a reliable method, I "just" update them, tweak them and add a bunch of programs on a virtual machine then I use the sysprep method (optionally I can make a clean sweep too). Once done, I would not say that's a method for a beginner since I have to capture the image using gimagex (for win7) or dism (for win10), by booting a bootable and home-made winpe.iso that contains gimagex and dism... Then I have to transfer the image between the virtual machine and the local computer via ftp.
If you want my bare-bones winpe iso (After booting you have to type 1 or 2 to use cmd prompt or gimagex... there is nothing else): https://mega.nz/#!NJNQRSjD!3hI3mO0sqU2_SzJYLd4y1RVnyda3kIhm_gA-23KN9SE
I don't need to update winre.wim since I remove it. As far as boot.wim is concerned, for windows 7 I remember I added some usb3 drivers to be able to install it on recent computers with a usb key, that's all.

Since the whereabouts of harkaz are unknown, maybe you could add your own tutorial to explain what you mean by "custom boot.wim fully integrated" (and how to make a install.esd file for windows 7 since it's not supported by default).

Dr. Harkaz is a real doctor, I mean medical one and good programmer. Anyway this is the guide. https://mega.nz/#!UYR1TCyR!YCUiE7EeUpSHXq-t7M4DUf5J9yiFUT91BTvzYsDqrxc
If you want to reset Win 7 to factory defaults, winre.wim is needed when USB boot drive is absent( for noobs and non tech savy people). Install.wim can be converted to use ESD w/o any issue and it boots in a VM and its not quick as yours though. I've added ini and Ntlite presets in the ISO so people can use/refer them to re-create similar ISOs in future.

I'll keep removing winre.wim anyway. I can't believe you can convert install.wim to esd w/o any issue without a modded boot.wim. So your boot.wim, where is it? Could you give a link?

I'll upload the whole ISO with updated setup files which you can see by latest modification date in sources folder. Without, useless Winre.wim you can get the ISO under 2-2.3GB.
If you want updated boot.wim's apply convienience update, latest servicing stack and latest rollup June/July update.
Upload will be done by tonight or I'll give you the link in the evening!

Tonight, windows 10 x64 pro Lite RS6 with July 2019 updates is available ("19H1" for Vasudev)

Note that the release of windows 7 x64 is delayed. I was counting on Vasudev, but I will try to release a working esd file by my own means.

As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5, netfx 4.8, dx9 (and 12) and many programs.
Note: in this edition you'll find many more programs like vlc, firefox, handbrake, cdisplay (custom made edition of SF), Sumatra, Flashplayer...
It's also activated by default.
Nothing was deleted in winsxs and to obtain such a size, install.wim was converted into esd.
As usual, It also contains 7zip 19.00, winrar 3.71, Treesize free, subtitles edit, Visual C++ Redist...and the latest drivers.
list of the embedded drivers here: https://justpaste.it/3ke4l
Note that the intel graphics drivers are not integrated any more.
Nothing was removed (but a script was run to remove the useless appx and provisioned packages. Hopefully they won't come back since the registry was updated too).
Fx sound enhancer v13.025 was added (full version).
Windows defender is disabled by default but can be re-enabled again via gpedit.msc.
Note that the new feature Windows Defender Tamper protection was deactivated too.

Here is the script used to remove provisioned apps (the "Sysprep" switch was used).
Code: [Select]
#This function finds any AppX/AppXProvisioned package and uninstalls it, except for Freshpaint, Windows Calculator, Windows Store, and Windows Photos.
#Also, to note - This does NOT remove essential system services/software/etc such as .NET framework installations, Cortana, Edge, etc.

#This is the switch parameter for running this script as a 'silent' script, for use in MDT images or any type of mass deployment without user interaction.

Note that a switch-less lite installer for the latest nvidia drivers for win 10 x64 is available here (v431.36)
It might be possible to run it during the installation (not tested).

and here is the link for a switch-less win10 activator (encrypted & automatic).
I encrypted it to store it more easily since some antivirus detect it as a virus. Disable your antivirus before executing the exe (it’s not a virus).
A few seconds later,it’s done.

I don't have such problems. Considering that I uploaded big files on Mega (some repacks), I don't think it's a problem of file size. But try with a very small file to see if you have the same problem.

No, I didn't have that. I uploaded the boot.wim file as a test and it worked w/o any issues.

Today, windows 7 x64 Professional SP1 Tunisia edition with the latest updates is available.

Some users of the forum like Vasudev were eagerly waiting for it.
As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5 and netfx 4.8, dx9 (and 11) and many programs.
It was updated with the July 2019 updates, 7zip 19.00, winrar 3.71 full, Visual C++ Redist...
Many drivers were updated (intel graphics drivers were not integrated).
Windows defender and UAC are disabled by default.
Note that I'm planning to discontinue support for this version.
The useless recovery file winre.wim and a few obsolete drivers (printers, mdm, wia) were deleted.
Fx sound enhancer was added (full version).
Harkaz's rebase was not used in this version.
New: this version uses an ESD file (a compressed wim image), making it much smaller. Only 2.4 gb vs 4 Gb for the previous edition. Note that the setup begins like a windows 10 installation.

Note that you can still download xp here (an updated, lite version of Maher’s edition which includes every update):
kb4012598 and wmp11 with its updates have been integrated. What’s more, some visual tweaks were applied as you can see on the screenshot below.
Finally, a few unneeded elements were removed (the list is available in the nlite log in the iso file).

With this pack you can change the user interface language of office 2007 by using the “Microsoft Office 2007 Language Settings”. It's practically impossible to find it today.
