WAIK RTM Download Missing…

With the release of “The Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows 7 SP1” also comes a problem. Microsoft has removed the RTM download link for the KB3AIK_EN.iso and updated it with the supplement for the new SP1. How are people suppose to sysprep without the original installer of WAIK? I will keep an eye on this and will post back once Microsoft realizes their mistake.

    I’ve also noticed the same thing. I downloaded the KB3AIK_EN.iso 2 days ago but it’s corrupted and won’t install. Now i can’t seem to find the KB3AIK_EN.iso install anywhere..

    Microsoft fixed the link. It’s OK now πŸ™‚

  • Lol, this is just funny. Yes, Microsoft fixed the link by putting WAIK RTM back up. But now the Supplement for WAIK SP1 is missing. Haha…

      Yes. It’s very disappointing to download ?$ free tools from torrent trackers. No links at Microsoft, TechNet and MSDN to Supplement

    Come on M$ I’m having trouble deploying SP1 images from my deployment share, apparently I need those boot wims! Anyone open a support ticket to get the downloads squared away? I wasted most of my day trying to fix my deployment server. Ever since I tried to capture and deploy a Win7Ent SP1 image nothing has worked. Anyone else try to deploy SP1 with WAIK/PE 3.0 and have problems?

  • In case anyone was interested I fixed my WAIK 3.0 SP1 deployment by copying the setup files from a new Windows 7 with SP1 iso and now everything seemed to install properly. Does anyone know what exactly is different in PE 3.1? Should I use those boot wims if they ever become available again?

    This looks to be working now, just downloaded it this morning. Is this the right one?

  • Yes, it looks like both downloads are now available. I have updated the post above.

    I downloaded the windows 7 AIK from M$ on Thursay, March 15 and I was unable to install it on Windows 7 Enterprise X86. Any ideas. Where can I get a good copy of this program so I can prepair for a Windows class the end of April.
