    You be able to utilize vLite to customize a Windows installation previous to installing. I have encompassed not utilized it myself, and I am pretty convinced it works through Windows 7, other than I imagine you have encompassed a Windows 7 DVD then it creates a .iso image commencing from it and lets you customize what you desire/do not desire on it, and I think you be able to add stuff to it as well. You be able to then burn the .iso back to a blank DVD, or setup a USB pen drive to install from.

    Does it set the USB drive up to be bootable. On one occasion the .iso is completed, try utilizing the Windows 7 USB download tool to create the USB drive bootable and copy the .iso to it, or you be able to do it physically through command prompt and open the .iso and copy and paste the files to it.
