DISM Tool™ can mount your Boot.wim #2 and help with the drivers.

You need the drivers for your motherboard, not your HDD or SSD. Go to your MOBO companies website and find the support or driver download section. Usually it is included in the Chipset driver pack, but some companies provide a separate download for SATA/RAID controllers.

Hi all,
I have finally got this method to work after many trials & tribulations. Doing a clean reinstall with the original Windows 7 DVD seemed to sort it out.

(Edited post as fixed earlier issues)

My only remaining issue is that when I double click on a folder, it opens up a new window. It does this whether I check or uncheck "Launch folder in a separate process" in the folder options.

Any ideas?

Can .NET errors ("Unhandled exception" or "Application generated an exception") be caused by this all? I chose to keep the whole .NET framework, but I'm experiencing these problems with several programs, such as Switcher (http://insentient.net/) and Ultimate Windows Tweaker (http://www.thewindow...vista#more-1957).

I know for sure now that it's in the vLite process (made images and installed after every step)...

So what component I remove breaks the .NET Framework PARTLY??

Edit
Got a lead now from here: http://www.pcreview....read-529466.php
I'm trying to do the same vLite while keeping Disk Quota component...

Edit#2
Nope, wasn't it... Still have the problem...

Saw this in the "Windows 7 RTM (32 & 64 Bit) *UPDATED*" topic, for anyone that might encounter the issue.

......you will need to register the "ieproxy.dll" file when removing Internet Explorer. This needs to be done immediately after installing, when the computer boots to the desktop for the first time. The file "ieproxy.dll" is located in the Windows System32 folder. This can be done using Run or Command Prompt. Type the following: regsvr32 "C:\Windows\System32", then press ENTER. Then, a dialog box will appear saying that the file was registered successfully; then click and OK reboot your system. The reason this needs to be done is to prevent Windows Explorer or Computer, from opening multiple windows when you are browsing through the directories. It will also ensure that the feature; Safely Remove Hardware & Eject Media will continue to work, while also remaining enabled in the system tray.

Wish I'd seen that 3 weeks ago :wacko:

Nope. Not at all. They are the different wallpapers, and settings for transparency, etc.

Hi to all. I've been watching this topic since it started, and yesterday I faced a new problem. I wanted to install Expression Web 3 which requires NET 3.5 SP1 to be installed. If I try to run the installer from microsoft website it keeps telling me that I must install Net Framework 3.5 SP1 from Windows Features, but in Control Panel > Programs > Windows Features, it not appears. Using my batch script, I removed from install.wim the following packages.


Question: Is there any of these packages known as they are breaking NET Framework 3.0 or 3.5 ????

Thank you.

Is it really worth giving this a try? Not that Jeronimo didn't do great work, but this is still based for the larger part on the actual component removal by vLite, and to be honest I have rarely had a completely successful go with vLite on Win7. Especially stuff like .NET being broken even though I didn't remove any of its components (neither through the batch-file not through vLite). I think it would be nice to shift focus to a new approach, i.e. leaving vLite behind when it comes to Win7. RT Seven Lite seems to be on the right track in all this, though still in beta, it's doing a more than decent job.

We've already got tools and threads for this all over the forums. Also, you seem to be looking for help on this in multiple other topics - it might be wise to, instead of spamming about the forum, be more precise in your postings, and search before posting. These questions have been asked before - if you need something more specific, feel free to ask. However, up until now all of your questions are a little to vague (or have already been answered / discussed here), so please be a little more industrious before asking for help in the future. Thank you.

I am willing to do this with Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit.
Will it still work or not? :unsure:

You just need to make sure you make your install.wim workable with vLite first as outlined in this thread, before using this method...

hello, anyone care to do it for windows 8.1 as well. I want to make usb thumbdrive with it and only have 4Gb (meaning something along the 3,75 GB) size thumbs and recent windows iso stick its foot-thumb out of its shoe so to speak regarding their size. I dont feel like buying other bigger usb drives though they are cheap.

I will gladly dump fat from tat install also.
