The title is need some explanation, here it is:
Using Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit edition, and using latest vLite to optimize.
1. I checked Skip product key, and the regional settings on Regional panel, and to skip user creation and admin password, but the installer still asks for regional options at the beginging of install, and still asks for user creation. Skipping activation and serial number was fine.
2. I strip out the most part of Vista Ultimate, probably the 90% of the options in vLite (like Aero, languages, games, IE, the drivers fully, windows desktop manager, and alot mor stuff). The original windows iso is 3300MB, the finetuned iso is now approx. 2500MB.
After the install finsihed (without any error) the beautiful Aero surface load up, and the Desktop window manager runs also (these are removed with vLite before the image created). The total Vista install with vLite optimized edition is 7,2GB, far much then I excepted after how many things I removed.
Please tell me what am I doing wrong, or what to do. (yes I used Aplly & rebuild before I start the image writing).
This is a pre-activated and no-sreial edition, but I think for most important part (2.) this is not the problem.
If somebody can hardly confirm, that the problem is that this is a hacked version, i am now downloading my legal copy of Vista business via MSDNAA, and I can try vLite with that tomorrow.
Anyway this is a great tool, so thank you for this!
