if anyone is still interested, i will post another guide to vliting your server 2008 sp2 web or standard x86. i have managed to get the iso down to 625mb for web & 680mb for standard with the add features in server manager still intact. after install, hard drive space consumed is about 3gb.

tools required: WAIK 1.1, gimagex (optional), vlite 1.2
all must be installed!
nb. this method has been tested on windows server 2003 & vmware.


Windows Web Server
Stage 1:

1) create 2 folders such as c:\s1 & c:\s2
2) copy the contents of Web disc to s1
3) mount install.wim (image 1) to s2 folder using gimagex or imagex
4) run install_wim_tweak.exe with c:\s2 as the folder selected to take ownership of reg hive, created by & credit to BM wnuku
5) commit changes & unmount

Stage 2:

1) first download this: credit to 7bingo7
2) copy or extract contents to the Tools\Servicing folder of the Windows AIK directory
3) mount install.wim (image 1) to s2 folder using gimagex or imagex
4) run addfeatures.cmd (which has s2 folder already selected). this will add bitlocker, desktop experience, netfx 3 & wireless networking
5) once done, result should show as 0, commit changes & unmount

Stage 3:

1) mount install.wim (image 1) to s2 folder using gimagex or imagex
2) this time run rmpackages.cmd which will remove most packages (see packages.txt for details), again this file is linked to the s2 folder
3) once completed, again make sure the result is 0, commit changes & unmount

as you've probably noticed by now, there is still no use of WSIM to rebuild the catalog...do not do this.

Stage 4:

1) start vlite with the -extreme switch
2) use my last session ini file
3) this step you need to do very quickly while vlite is doing its thing: copy the winsxs.bat file from the server2008web zip file to your vlite temp directory which is normally vstemp19?, go to windows\winsxs\backup folder, paste, run the bat file & then delete; this will nullify some of the large files in the folder
4) once vlite finishes, iso size should be around 625mb & install size less than 3gb or thereabouts, test in vmware.

Windows Server Standard

for server standard, do the same as above but from stage 2 onwards, use the files from here:

for vlite stage use this last session ini:

ps. with web server branding package has been removed but you can delete it from the packages.txt file to keep the server branding. also, in the last session ini, remove the driver integration unless u have that driver to integrate?

if anyone is still interested, i will post another guide to vliting your server 2008 sp2 web or standard x86. i have managed to get the iso down to 625mb for web & 680mb for standard with the add features in server manager still intact. after install, hard drive space consumed is about 3gb.

Hi, i'm interest, but have questions:
1) Is obligatory add Bitlocker packages features? Or can I delete from "features.xml" ?
2) Is obligatory add netFX 3 package feature? Or can I delete from "features.xml"?
3) Can I remove BitLocker and netFX features with vLite ?
4) Can your guide be aplied to Server 2008 SP2 standard Spanish?

Thanks for publishing your guide

1) it is obligatory to add bitlocker in features.xml if you want to remove it from the feature list (see your pic)
2) i would highly recommend to keep netfx
3) as long as you added bitlocker & netfx in features.xml, then you can use vlite to remove it
4) it should be language independant so i would think it will work?

for some reason, i couldn't remove everything as usually the internet printing client, lpr port monitor & print service tools remain. also, bear in mind, there must be at least 1 server role available otherwise (it doesn't matter if its not installed) the server manager will crash

you could try installing in compatibility mode to see if that works?

No problem, as i was working on W7T i noticed another few bugs so i fixed them so i'm now on 1.3.4 lol. I've managed to get the Component Removal in AIO Integrator working so you can remove packages from all versions automatically :D
