Installing recent versions of Windows, including Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, isn’t as time consuming and difficult as it was the case with previous Windows versions but once Windows is installed and running, installing all necessary hardware drivers, installing Service Packs, recent updates, installing your favourite programs and personalizing Windows to your liking is certainly a long, time-consuming, and more importantly, boring task.
Luckily, there are a couple of programs out there to help you customize the Windows installation or Windows ISO by integrating drivers, language packs, service packs, applications, and even your favourite Windows themes. The free tool we want to share with you here is Win Toolkit.
Win Toolkit, previously known as Windows 7 Toolkit, has been updated to support Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 versions as well. The other good thing is that it offers great number of features and easy-to-use as well.
To start with, Win Toolkit enables you integrate drivers, language packs, theme packs and service packs. The All-In-One Disk Creator feature lets you create a single ISO file containing both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows flavours, meaning that you can install both 32 and 64-bit Windows from one bootable media.
The other feature, available in all Windows installation customization software out there, is Unattended Creator. As the name suggests, it allows you create an unattended Windows installation ISO, DVD or USB, which means that you don’t need to enter your product key, create user account, and select a language during the product installation. In other words, if you don’t want to stay awake along with your PC during Windows installation and want to automate the installation, use this feature.
Overall, this is an excellent piece of software to customize your Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 installation. Note that if you want to try this tool on Windows XP or Windows Vista, you must have installed DISM Installer and .NET Framework 3.5 on your PC.
