Windows 7 x64 vLite "extreme removal" Shrink image & installation by use of vLite & a batch-file
Posted 17 August 2009 - 08:59 AM
@liquid0624: system32 is for the 64-bit files, SysWOW64 for the 32-bit files (open up a file in notepad and look for processor Architecture).
My bad jeronimo i believe you are right on this not finding processor Architecture in that encrypted mess but looking at the size of browcli.dll in System32 is 57KB and the size of it in SysWOW64 is 40.5KB meaning the 64-bit versions are in System32 b/c the size of a 64-bit dll is always bigger nice work never new this though it was the other way around great work once again my friend I still don't know how you are getting you install.wim down to 800 MB though lowest i can get mine removing all packages you do and cleanup all the files you do as well except for the .net stuff i just removed the .net 3 package and i can only get mine to 1.15gb install.wim and a even 1.30gb for my ISO size.
i was able to get my wim down to 780mb but im hoping to hit 750mb?!

I am under the strong impression, that driver integration does not work with dism. I think for this I will stick with vLite the next time. Right now I have re-installed my C-drive for the 1st time since build 7137 and so far I am loving it. RTM takes up 3.89GB with everything installed. I do have a minimal of applications installed as I am a happy user those portable apps or at least those that do not require installation. Those are on my D-drive, which do not even take up 400MB including My documents.

I updated the batch-file. Along with the mentioned changes I also added the fixreg from SausageHack's Guide. If mine is too complex and you want a more detailed guide, then check out his.

If "disable-feature:MediaPlayback" is set what's the result of that?
these packages do not exist in N-version:

I really haven't had a lot of time for working on computer stuff since school started, but I am hoping to roll out a compatible and functional guide for this ASAP. I technically already have made a good guide, but I also want to thoroughly test it and maybe make a semi-gui before I upload. Even if that doesn't happen, I would like to at least convert it to an EXE that lets you choose parameters by selection (like 1 for packages, press 2 for cleanup, etc.)
I like the new concept of removal_custom.bat and I can see that it would come in handy. However, I don't know if I'll include it in the 'noob' guide. I will still keep it available though because I know that some people still want to use it as well as my guide.
EDIT: I wrote some script for a user-selection menu but I am having troubl with it. Jeronimo I know your a batch file beast could you help me out? The description is in the ZIP along with my failure batch files xD So if anyone else wants to be an early adopter you can use this, but you need to fix the problems that I can't.

PS. any chance that anyone has one of the batch files from say a week ago because I want to check if it is only on the newer batches that it fails

Just remember to discard the image ievery time (you can always cancel by ctrl-c). This should narrow it down for you.
