If you have any suggestions or know ways to improve this tool, drop me a message. But how to find such improvements? How to tinker with the Vista Setup?

Of course, you do not want to reboot your machine everytime you want to try something. So, you will want to use a virtualization solution. Microsoft’s Virtual PC looked like being the optimal choice, because it is free and from Microsoft (like the Vista setup). However, for some reasons, the mouse acts somehow jumpy while being in the setup. It is hard to describe,  but it is very annoying. Using VirtualBox worked much better for me, the mouse is much smoother. I use a temporary 1GB virtual partition to store scripts and tools I use for tinkering, like:

  • Sysinternals Suite
  • 7-Zip
  • Dependency Viewer
  • OllyDebug

So I can reboot my Vista Setup as often as I want and still have my tools. For transferring tools onto that disk, I use a virtual floppy. Copy stuff on there (if needed split with 7-Zip first) and copy it to the virtual hard disk.
