  1. Cmon dudes.., don't be silly! I will buy you all a new computer if he have been hired by MS for "his" "skills" of crippling Windows. It's either brainsurgery nor condoned or even appreciated by MS in any way. Get real.
  2. Well, removing WMP is not allways removing only WMP... Due to the massive userbase Nihu has to cater for there is a good chance that some other things has had to be taken out to keep some users combination of components working. This user can very well be fine with removing WMP and the add let's say kLite pack, simply because he might have removed a component that turned out to be dependent of those "extra" files that Nuhi had to remove when removing WMP. And here we touch the cause why I've been bitching about Nuhi beeing a tightass about giving info of what gets removed, he gathers info but never let's it out. As long as this is the case we will never see any real improvments. Personally I'm fine, my knowledge stretches a bit further than what button does what in vlite, but I feel for the common users here. But I agree in the sense that sometime the users gets too "triggerhappy" in their "vliteclicking" OS modding. Again, the users would benefit and learn whats really is going on under the hood if the author of vlite shared the info with them. All would benefit and progress would be made. Like it used to be...
  3. And helping out without using "polite.exe" really ain't nice either. I've been at this game far more long than you, but I still haven't reverted to beeing unpolite to people in need of advice. And speaking of advice, I'm quite sick of seeing people questioning peoples choices and refusing to give advice in the direction asked for. Shape up! OMG Clint chill! (Besides JUST how sure you have been at this game far longer than him? Or any of us for that matter?) Besides removing those components only removes the space needed by them and hampers your os. They only "Slow" down your system when you use them. This is all really moot anyways because vLite was not made for Windows7 and people should stop complaining when an app made for OTHER OS'es doesn't work right on the OS that is still a BETA... Taken the content and insight of his posts, and the simple fact that I've pretty much all the time been ahead of the author of vlite. I did howerever not say ALL of you in ALL aspects, nice try though... That aside, I see too much posts stating "why do you want to to that?" or "that OS is not meant for this purpose"...and other in those lines. The backbone of tweaking, ripping and minimizing OS's is the curiosity and willingness to experiment. That is the exact same cause that lead nlite and vlite to surface. Let them play and discover, this is one of the fundamenta of progress and development. Anyway, my last words in the matter.

  5. From what I've understand the dude is studying at university. Perhaps he is catching up on exams or doing a Phd or something. The fella has given a lot of his time for little to nothing in return, so go easy on him. Even though him and me hasn't been at best terms over the years I still can recognize his efforts, and maybe need for a break.
  6. this is a ridiculous thing to remove, this and dx10 are the best things in vista Okok...so now everybody knows your standpoint. Please stop shuvving your opinion about his "experiment", it's not your call.
  7. No wonder it failed. Thats why NEVER remove everything from server or else it will fail. Server is different compare to vista when it comes to vlite. Removing certain components causes server not to install. Even if you dont remove too many components and succesfully install it, then server "add features and add roles" will fail to install its features or roles as well. Only 3 or 4 components can be removed safely. btw when vliting server, vlite gives you a warning when you select "componenets" something like this, "removing components can break add features" My advice is, do not remove anything if your planning to use server features, as server is not bloated compare to vista, you can remove certain stuffs and it will work fine, but might cause problems later. Tweaking server with vlite is safe. How many features is removed and whatnot has absolutely nothing to do with that the file copy part fails. The disc has most certainly been badly burned, burn a new one at slower speed. Do not give advice or such if you don't know what you are talking about. I know exactly what am talking about. I have vlited server countless times for testing to see how it works and its "add features and roles" function, if you do remove everything then server fails to install. If you remove few components then server installs fine, but "add features" break, only few items can be removed without loss of server add features functionality And yes, the high speed (bad) burn disc can also be an issue as well No, you are wrong. Please don't give advice based on your obviously lacking knowledge. I do not use Vlite, but I'm pretty sure Nuhi didn't give support for 2008 server if it will not install when removing all components. Me and Nuhi have had our differences, but I know he sits on that much of knowledge anyway... In any scenario, failing file copy stage has absolutely nothing to do with capability to install, and have no relation whatsoever with removed components. You boot from boot.wim which is loaded in memory, then the files from install.wim gets extracted to HD. After file copy to HD is done your system reboots and then your installation continous from extracted files. The only files you are altering with Vlite is the ones residing in the install.wim image. So I hope you can now see, that if file copy fails it has nothing to do with components removed. Instead of simply base your 'knowledge' on results from clicking vlite buttons, do some reading and try to understand what is going on in the system. I runned into same problem as above, "server 2008 failed to install". Reason was because i also did remove everything with vlite, and server setup failed. Thats why i said, i know what am talking about. Maybe you should try testing server and remove everything with vlite, to see it for yourself. Maybe you do have more experience than me in many things, but you can't master everything in computing, and sometimes some people with less experience than you can know more things than you in a particular topic. Sorry don't mean to be rude here EDIT: Yes you were right, the filecopy (expanding files) has got nothing to do with component removal (even i knew that), its main cause was badly burned cd. Just vlited and tested again BUT this time burned it at a low speed, (before i was burning cd at a very high speed), thats were i got the same problem as above, and gave wrong advice. So yes you were right . sorry! That sounds good, and I'm sorry for coming out harshly.

  10. Well, it can be done actually...so go easy with the guy. The problem is to manage to install it on 128MB due to the image boot.wim that is loaded in memory at boot. If you have an unmodded boot.wim you cannot get under ~200MB memoryusage at boot, because that is what the image of boot.wim will need to fit in the RAM. I have succeeded to install 2008 (don't care about Vista) on 64MB RAM, but then with an somewhat different approach. If you use an Linux boot disc with the imaging util and the install.wim image it's just a matter of a simple menu and a few lines of code and it will install in a few minutes. I've run an 2008 box on 128MB RAM for quite some time now and it runs just perfect (even though XP/2003 will allways be the better choice)
  11. Don't expect him to answer that, doesn't matter how much you helped before.... ...
  12. My ISP will cut me off for 24 hours if I reach a total of 15GB in datatransfer (DL+UL), and that is really painful! Now, what I'm looking for is a util that can keep track of the amount of data transferred and cut off connection when too close to limit. There is plenty of bandwidthlimiters around, but I cannot find anything that controls the amount of data transferred. Anyone? Thanks in advance!
  13. I stand corrected. Thanks for the info, not often you give such useful info like this. .NET and C# certainly makes imaging easier..
  14. Really?? If 'you don't use' ImageX in vlite, why does vlite request you to install the wim filter (wimfltr.sys) then??? The wim filters presence are solely for the functionality of ImageX...or??
  15. Hmm, you can't expect ppl to jump on this like they have nothing else to do...be patient and wait a day or 3 before you make a comment like that. Even though I have my differenses with Nuhi I know he is giving a lot of his free time to develop this, so if he is spending weeks and months on this for you...you maybe could wait a few days for him.?? But to answer your questions: I guess vlite takes time because it has to 'rebuild' the whole structure, meaning copy all files to another location and then back again. (sorta) It is a bit quicker to do it manually, but it still involves the extracting of content to a new structure. I hope this made you a bit more patient with the wait involved, and maybe learned to be a bit more patient yourself.
