Other ingredients necessary for this process include Windows 7 volume license media (necessary for installing multiple licenses from a single image), the Windows 7 Automated Installation Kit (WAIK), a USB flash drive upon which to store the standard image, and a reference computer upon which the standard image will be built and from which it can be customized.
