    Custom Windows 8.1 DVD

    I'm sorry for asking it here but I rather ask here now since I've searched for a week now and can't find something that can give me the answer I need.

    Sorry if this thread sounds retarded or anything.


    May I ask, for Windows 7, it was possible to make a custom windows 7 installation dvd using VM and IMAGEX and then replacing the install.wim in the DVD.

    Can this be done for Windows 8.1?

    I've seen guides that use slipstreaming of updates and softwares with silent keys. But that's not what I want.

    I'm looking for something like
    Gather the Necessary Resources

    My question is, can this be applied to Windows 8.1 too?

    Sorry if this seems like a retard question but I feel that its better asking the community and getting answers to see if what I even want is something possible.

    As we speak now, I'm trying to apply the guide for Win 7 to a Win 8.1. No idea yet if it will work...

    In Windows 8. DISM is a replacement for imagex. You might want to look at: DISM GUI. It is a stand alone DISM GUI which you can mount the install.wim file then add features, pakages, drivers, product key, applications etc...

    Hope this is what you are looking for.

    I'm sorry for not replying to this query of mine for a long time.


    What I would like to achieve is an installation DVD that I have customized to my needs (installing company related applications and stuff) just like how I did for Windows 7.

    I'll try the DISM thing and see what I can come up with.

    Thanks topgundcp!
