What is WinBorg 7?
If you boot with this DVD and start the setup routine, this will clean install a 64 bit version of Windows 7 SP1 ultimate edition, updated to the month of release. The aim is for you to be able to stick this DVD in, quickly get setup running, and then when setup finally stops your computer is ready to use. There are no steps in between, you don't need to do a thing, you get a fully unattended installation of everything. This means all your device drivers installed and no critical updates need installing. You just sit back and enjoy the ride.
WinBorg XP was created by BartOfBorg. Further development since August 2006 by Soporific.
Your computer will boot into a PE, which is a stripped down version of Windows 7, where you can use a variety of tools to check your hardware or fix problems before running setup.
The Operating System
The operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate SP1. You should not need to download anything from Windows Update except maybe some drivers that Microsoft knows you need. You should also be able to 'validate' at any time with any OS you install from this DVD. When you visit Windows Update, you do not have to download or install anything in order to use it, the necessary files have already been integrated.

New in this version
* The Apps Library makes a triumphant return!
- 64-bit apps: I have only included 64-bit versions of apps where it is at all possible there is a benefit from having access to more than 4GB of RAM. Any app that has a simple job to do does not fall into this category and so was not included. Lots of space was saved applying this philosophy.
- I have ransacked the best theme libraries on the planet to present to you the top 40 themes to choose between. Available from the Apps Library.
- FIXED: all apps small in size do not show the file copying dialog anymore, so no more flashing dialog boxes that only appeared for half a second. How annoying was that? Sorry for all previous versions where I did not apply this philosophy! I have also reduced the installer size and also added code to skip the install start and end messages when you use the Apps Library system. This saves lots and lots of time when you install many applications at once.
* Microsoft Virtual PC was not installed like it was in previous versions. Only a tiny minority of the users of WinBorg 7 would want this pre-installed.
* Lots of little cosmetic changes were made, WinBorg 7 is now a highly polished product.
* Sorry about the post-install updates, I tried to integrate them into the source but it's not possible. Some of them have known reasons for why they can't be slipstreamed but there's no excuses for the rest Microsoft! Release Service Pack 2 for Windows 7 you cheap bastards!
How to Use WinBorg 7
1. Unpack the RAR archive file. You will need WinRAR v5 or 7-Zip v16 to do this. Earlier versions won't work.
2. Please read the .NFO file (use notepad or similar) as it contains information about the setup process that you should be aware of. In particular about the need to be online during setup to get all updates installed. It also contains instructions for using WinBorg 7.
3. If you want to proceed to making a USB version of WinBorg 7 but you don't have anyway to mount the ISO image, use WinCDEmu, mount the image and run DiscMenu.exe from the root folder. The option for USB install is in the menu.

1. Sigh. There is a problem with the apps library config file. There is a special character at the start of the CONFIG.JS file that is preventing the library from loading. See below for the fix.
2. The documentation in the Readme is slightly wrong: I left off an addon that was intetegrated: Reapers Startup Control Panel 2.8 (x64)
Full instructions to add the fixed Config file:
1. Unpack the RAR archive.
2. Mount the ISO file that is inside the RAR archive. There are many programs you can use to achieve this, my favourite easy one can be found here:
- this will add the WinBorg image to your filesystem so you can access it.
3. Copy the contents of the WinBorg image (the ISO) to a separate folder. Let's call this folder the new build
4. Replace the bad file with the fixed version. Instructions as to finding the file are included with the fix.
5. Make any other adjustments (highly recommended, see the nfo for details)
6. Look for the MakeDVD folder (in the new build) and use the utility inside it to remake the DVD.
The other way to do it is to make the USB install and replace the bad file on your USB. It will save you remaking the DVD image.
Another way to do it is use UltraISO, insert the new files, and re-save the image. It will still recognise the boot info.
NEWS: I have released a cumulative update pack to fix 2 issues and update 2 apps, see the links below. The update pack includes the fixed and updated CONFIG.JS file so you don't need "WinBorg7.x64.January.2017.Fixed.Config-SOPORIFIC.rar" anymore.
Issues fixed: The CONFIG.JS issue, and also the Networx installer had a problem.
Updates: MediaInfo, and IsMyLcdOK have new versions out
Please Give Feedback:
* If you use WinBorg a lot, please provide feedback about how you use it, and especially if you use it to customize for your own purposes. I made a great effort to make it as customizable as possible, but I'm sure I could do more!
Also, please read the NFO file (use notepad or similar) before using WinBorg 7, there's lots of info you should know before installing, especially regarding Windows Updates and device drivers.
You will need version 5 of WinRAR to extract the DVD image! (or 7-Zip v16)
