  1. I think the answer is in the fifth post here: http://www.administrator.de/wissen/powershell-windows-10-modern-apps-startmenü-anheften-entfernen-pin-unpin-287368.html
  2. I've compared Enterprise and Enterprise N, all files I've checked are identical on both except for settings.dat and settings.dat.LOG1, located in C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\Settings Both files are 32 kB in Enterprise (and Pro), and 8 kB in Enterprise N. Edit: They're just shortcuts to the Store now. IIRC, before the official launch of 1511 it actually installed the apps when connected to internet, but not anymore.
  3. Maybe this can be of help, 10586 Enterprise N lacks these pending apps, the regular Enterprise got them. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/66640-How-to-Make-a-Windows-10-quot-Super-LTSB-quot-ISO
  4. There are 5 uninstalled apps (Twitter, Minecraft, Flipboard, Wunderlist and Candy Crush Saga) in build 10586 that starts installing when internet is connected. They can not be uninstalled until they have finished installing. Removing Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager in NTLite results in an install without the pending apps, but I don't know if this causes any issues. It would be great if it was possible to remove these pending apps in NTLite.
  5. Wasn't the original meaning of a Service Pack to just include all updates and hotfixes in a one package which can be either installed or slipstreamed? Sure, but the difference between now and then is that it's not a matter of life and BSOD anymore. Who said anything about components? Well that's what I said, right? I guess we're all a bit spoiled by the overall stability of W7 RTM compared to older versions. W7 RTM is 3 years old now, and still usable. Of course we all use W7 with SP1 now, but RTM is still usable. Imagine using XP RTM in 2004, it was a whole different story.. You can't compare it like that First check size of system files in NT 4.0 and W8. And that's my point, you can't compare six service packs for NT 4.0 from an era when MS couldn't even expect everyone to have a dial up connection, to today when MS makes a 170 MB update to W8 before launch. Without the internet, that update alone would have been a service pack.
  6. That list doesn't reflect the reality, which is: 1 - The need for service packs depends partly on how half baked the RTM was. Seriously, how many of those versions were usable and stable from day one? W7 was far better out of the box than Vista, XP or 2000 was. Dunno about NT 4.0 or NT 5.2 since I never used the RTM versions of them. 2 - How much better did W7 actually get with SP1? Sure, you didn't have to install loads of updates, but the overall impression was the same as with RTM. W7 RTM was stable. 3 - The reason why XP SP3 exists, why Vista was delayed, and why Vista RTM sucked was all because MS dropped the ball back then, simply put. 4 - The reason for why there are six service packs for NT 4.0 is partly because back then you didn't update the OS over internet the way we do it today. You used floppies or a CD with the service pack to update, the service packs were much smaller and came more often. SP1 was 1.4 MB large and came SEVEN WEEKS after the launch of NT 4.0.. As a contrast, W8 got a 170 MB large cumulative update this week from WU, before launch. That update alone is larger than all the service packs for NT 4.0 combined! I expect one more SP for W7, at most.
  7. Licensing is also a reason. Lots of people will have a W8 license, how many will have W8TC?
  8. dead0: Thank you for this guide! If you make a guide for W7 SP1, I think it deserves a new thread. My testing so far makes me believe that vlite doesn't work with SP1. I even tried removing Traditional Chinese only, nothing else. I'm getting this error after I click "Install now": "The product key entered does not match any of the windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key."
  9. Do I need to have WAIK for Windows 7 installed when using RT 7lite? I'm running WAIK Vista SP1 now. Edit: Seems like I need a new WAIK..
  10. Kullenen_Ask: I saw your total disk usage, but how large is C:\Windows ? Thanks.
  11. 1 - Have you tried splitting the ISO with vlite? http://www.vlite.net/help/iso.html Read the documentation next time before posting, or use google. 2 - Use a USB memory. http://www.msfn.org/board/forum/157-install-windows-from-usb/
  12. It wouldn't work anyway. http://superuser.com/questions/179550/change-windows-7-professional-to-windows-7-professional-n
  13. An alternative is to download a different copy from Microsoft with WMP included.
  14. I used RT7lite to remove features, and after that vlite to remove winsxs. Surprisingly, the installation never stopped, no need for oobe.exe. KB947821 have been updated august 23. It didn't show up at WU, but can be downloaded: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=kb947821%20%22windows%207%22 Unlike earlier version, this one can be installed manually, just start the MSU.
  15. Nope, not if it's done the right way, see link above. I have used it and it worked. It's not totally removed, it's reduced to about 200 MB (32 bit) with vlite. If you just delete the folder you'll just get a BSOD. WU can't install all updates, but that's expected since so many functions are removed (it's impossible to update something that isn't there, after all), and that occurs even if winsxs is left untouched.
