Guide How to Remove Packages with WAIK [ Could be use on Vista as well ]

use the original install.wim

hive in to regedit.exe the software [in system32\config\]

export to the packages

with notpade replace

"Visibility"=dword:00000002

to

"Visibility"=dword:00000001

save it and import it back to regedit.exe [ click it twice, u should take owner and full access first]

remove the Owners dirs of all the packages [ save it from time to time so u wont get mistake and need to go back]

use this short-cut

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...st&p=821972

save the hive with unhive it [ save the wim changes]

use Windows SIM [ WAIK] to make the new clg file

start to make answer file to remove those packages u dont need [edit at 12.6: use <package action="remove" permanence="permanent">]

if u get error like 1023 or 1623 i dont remember u should rebulid the image with vlite [or start remove comps with it and rebulid, do that after u remove all the possable]

TIPS:

server 32bit have 201 packages i success to remove till 74 packages left after remove comps with vlite

those others that get those error i was talking before was able to remove now [ duno why ]

u dont need to remove the lang pack of any package if u remove the main the lang pack of it should go too

if u remove the server lang pack the while the install u will get error

Go extreme with vlite & Server

if u want to remove winsxs as well and still have the aero

remove the pending.xml in winsxs dir [install.wim]

tell me about ur exp. with it :)

GL man
