I tried vLiting W7 7100 today. Removed relatively few things. I have been using nLite quite a bit lately for both XPx64 (main OS) and XPx86 (want to put it on a laptop).

W7 installed OK, but wouldn't do it unattended. I entered the user name and it has no dropdown for timezones in vLite. So it asks for a username and the timezone during installation.

Also, is there any RunOnce option in vLite? I didn't see any way to run a batch file for addons like I did in nLite.

I'm writing this post from a vlited Windows 7 RC x64. The ISO is 1,72 GB. I've installed it on a secondary partition, and for now it works really fine. This is the ini:

Thanks.

As i have said previously.Do not use the Unattended tab in vLite when vliting Windows 7.The unattended part will not work correctly and on worse case install will fail.Use WSIM(Windows System Image Manager) form WAIK(Windows Automated Installation Kit).WAIK for Windows 7 RC can be downloaded here: http://www.microsoft...35-d30ead27ef72 .

For me Internet Explorer is a no go: causes installation to fail.

File and Printer Sharing, IIS, Windows Connect Now, Windows Firewall are also suspicious as well as some other components from the Services section (Computer Browser?). Going for install nr. 20 or so...

[edit]
Ok, no go for me are:
IE (installation error)
Windows Firewall (installation error)
ICS (installation error)
IPSec (installation error and winipsec.dll error)

QoS (No possiblity to add a WLAN manually)

Welcome Center (keeps appearing in vLite after removal)
[/edit]

Ok, for me I think I can not slim it down any further than the attached preset. I will try IE seperately and maybe Windows firewall as well. However I think, this is the best I can slim it down to: 1.51GB install.wim, 7.6GB installed. I do need to protect some files, because I remove IPsec (error-emssage at installation) and Windows Error Reporting (2 files, reported in 1 of the posts above; not tested by me) and get 5 warnings about dependancies.

yeah but IE is around 70% of the reason a virus gets on a pc, the other 20% is becuse of the problem between the keyboard and chair and the last 10% through osmosis...so the story ends there for me, I really hate IE :realmad: :realmad: :realmad:

wrong!

IE is safe when you have UAC on! Now IE runs in protected mode (Low IL) and so viruses can't copy themselves into the system.

IE can removed from the windows feutures in the control panel, however that does not work. Most likely the same reasn with Vista that you need to keep a specific component. Not sure which it is (at work), but I think vLite point it out, that the component will break this.

IE and Windows Firewall are quite big components, non the less I only use 4.6GB (all drivers installed). Was previously checking actual file usage (incorrect with links) with page-/hibernate-file included.

Now everything installed, still only 5.11 GB in use. Some non-blocking issues, no biggies:
Snipping tool needs protect on: windows\system32\Magnification.dll & windows\system32\msdrm.dll (can be re-added manually later post-install)
Gadgets appears in the desktop right click menu, but does not work (I thought I removed it as I also did not with the Vista Sidebar)
Nokia PC suite will not install (does not support the platform it say upon installation)
Windows features can not be disabled (IE amongst others would be nice to remove)
I had some issues with installations resulting in errors related to VC80 (Windows Live Messenger), VC90 (Open Office 3.0)

The last was strangely resolved: I downloaded .NET 3.5 SP1 and ran it (no messages what so ever) and after this it seemed to work. Not sure if this was the solution, but it works now.

And the best part: I do not know weither it is the vLite'd Windows 7, my positive attitude or reality, but Windows 7 feels a lot snappier than Vista.

Kevin one of the three things occurred when you posted this either:
A) You didnt test it, at all.
B) You didnt notice that one of the options selected for removal was TPM Base Services, thus meaning I had to grab my bug spray which just wasnt enough (I was bum rushed by 53,000,000 error boxes thanks....
C)this will not work with server r2, which means add even more confusion and thus why I already hate 7..

EDIT: Nevermind heres a cookie, didnt finish installing at all, it failed which means my list is still relevant and this thing is a stinker.... or as my sig says grab a plunger shes a risin like a mighty missippi

I'm not a guru of Windows, just an advanced user, so I can only say that I'm working now with that preset without any trouble, after installing all drivers and software and using it many hours every day. However, I posted the x86 preset instead of x64, but I'm posting the Last session.ini of my x64 ISO, so there is no doubt (they both are the same, anyway). Here it is:

Hey, do you know whitch component is causing Windows features failing to be disabled? And shouldnt you had kept Error Reporting due to missinng wer.dll warning during the installation ?

Hi,

No I did not figure out which component it was. I thlought vLite for Vista, but maybe it was nLite. I googled a lot without success. I have protected wer.dll and werconcpl.dll(?; check my preset) and that is why I could remove Error Reporting. However Error Reporting is what causes Windows features to not write to the errorlog what goes wrong see windows\panther\CBS.log:
2009-05-14 19:01:57, Info CBS Failed to submit the Windows Error Report. [HRESULT = 0x80070002 - ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND]


... However I am fine currently with my installation, I will leave that challenge for the next install or for somebody else :thumbup

Hi all,
When I got towards the end of the installation, the installation fails because it says it could not find the file: AEPIC.dll

Anyone know what the cause of this is?

My ini file is attached.

Thx.

Hi, me again.
I followed the recommendations of "FridgeTooFar" but when the installation gets to the point where you select either a "Home", "Work" or "Public" network, when I click on a network it hangs at that screen. The progress bar just keeps scanning across but does not go any further.

Any ideas?

I tried comparing the install.wim files, but I think easier is to perform a re-install. I would also rather know which files I need to keep as well. I want to remove IE, but if I need to keep 180MB for Help to be able to remove it, then I am not too sure. Would be nice if it were just a few files that need to be protected.

Well it hangs on me too, i deleted windows 7 , i am happy with serv 08 and when its discontinued im sure ReactOS will be ready or a BSD i will go

I went into making this list with the idea (A very naive one at that) that would be simple to do win 7 with vlite, I was wrong and I also didnt think that you needed to keep the whole friggin OS (well almost) to run it, so I am abandoning this Windows Certified Lost Cause™, Houston, Aquarius this is apollo 13 off..... (and vista is much like apollo, and 7 more like friggin challenge or the titanic, well it wouldnt be if nuhi didnt jump ship. oh well)

Ok guys made a new install of the build 7127 64 bit this time i canned media center and all its components this build is extremely good and if u delete the games and DVD maker and all the wallpapers, themes, and sounds then compress the drive. The whole install is a like 4.05 gigs which is amazing here is the preset enjoy let me know your thoughts...

This is directions that were written by birdibird on the asus eee pc forums this script does work be careful if you don't understand something ask before doing. This will save even more space for you.

ok, another trick which saves quite some space (thanks to kazuni):
delete unnecessary files from winsxs

make a batchfile, for example cleanwinsxs.bat with the following:

@echo generating list of safe/unsafe extensions for removal
@c:
@cd \windows\winsxs
@mkdir \safe
@echo generating safe list
@dir *.log /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\log.bat
@dir *.chm /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\chm.bat
@dir *.icm /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\icm.bat
@dir *.icc /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\icc.bat
@dir *.mpg /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\mpg.bat
@dir *.mp4 /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\mp4.bat
@dir *.wma /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\wma.bat
@dir *.wmv /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\wmv.bat
@dir *.scr /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\scr.bat
@dir *.rtf /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\rtf.bat
@dir *-wp*.jpg /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\wallpaper.bat
@dir about*.txt /s/w/b 1>> c:\safe\about.bat
@copy c:\safe\*.bat c:\safe\safeJoined.bat
@echo all done.
@cd \safe
@echo opening safejoined.bat
@pause
@notepad safejoined.bat

-run it and at the end press a key to open notepad.
-in notepad choose edit-replace
-replace c:\ with type nul > c:\
-exit notepad while saving the file

Now we will run the batchfile with the correct rights:
(replace yourusername by your own username in the following)

-open an administrator cmd window
-cd \windows
-takeown /f winsxs
-icacls winsxs /grant yourusername:(f)
-cd \safe
-safejoined.bat

if everything went ok you now saved a couple of hundred megabytes!
i attached both scripts that i used in a zip file to this post to save u some work :)

I think there is a better tool to clean Winsxs, but I have not yet dared trying it :WinsxsLite (requires you manually download some additional libraries). I think there is some stuff on this in the Windows 7 folder.

On the latest 7127 build I heard some rumours about "debugging-stuff" in package, which causes the OS to be slower? Will check this myself in the Windows 7 forum.
