What is that famous KB you mentioned? Is it KB947821?

You mentioned in your first post that use RT 7 Lite first and then use VLite to remove winsxs [use rebulid all image with RT 7 Lite to save time 30 mins and u NEED to recapture the image!].

1. By the word of recapture, do you mean by just capturing via GImageX? Or, do I still have to apply (not mount) the image and capture the image?

2. Since you rebulid all image with RT 7 Lite, the slimmed down Windows image still contains all editions of Windows 7 SP1, right? Thus, in order to remove other undesired edition of Windows (like Home Premium and so on), vLite must be used. Is this statement correct?

1. yes apply (not mount) and then capture and then u can use vlite

2. rebulid all dont make wim smaller

but u dont need use vlite to make it just one 1 edition or lite it u can use gimagex \ export tab its much faster then RT lite

OK so now there is a new method to remove WinSxS.

method 5: run rt7lite to slim down your image (do not select winsxs removal in rt7lite). Then Capture & Apply with GimageX. Then run VLite (select winsxs for removal). No need to delete file pending.xml. After you install Windows you must install KB947821. It is recommended to load the lastsession files from the first post in RT7Lite and VLite and modify the options you want/don't want.

method 6: run rt7lite to slim down your image, select winsxs removal. No need to delete pending.xml. No need to install KB947821 after installing Windows.

But this method has not been tested by many people.

Question: using method 5, can I also just integrate KB947821 with VLite? Or should the update be integrated after VLite finishes removing WinSXS (simply run vlite or rt7lite again to integrate it)? Or should it really be installed after Windows has been installed?

that's what I'm doing on a 7 x64 sp1, but winsxs is 1.37Go after install (and 90 Updates integrated)

I never got this (method 5) to work for Windows 7 SP1 x64 Ultimate English. Just tried it again, I get a message during Windows Setup "windows could not be configured for your hardware" or something like that.

Not going to try method 6 (rtlite only) since updates are not going to work completely according to earlier posts.

--> It works when I test my RT7Lite image (call it iso 1).

--> It also works when I test my RT7Lite image after doing Apply & Capture with ImageX (call it iso 2).

It does not work when I test my image after doing vlite on the iso 2 (call it iso 3).

see screenshot attached.

I did not integrate anything. I use your ini and inf (sp1_v2) but I keep some stuff you selected. For example Japanese language in vLite is selected (needed for Office 2010) and Windows Mail is selected (needed for Office 2010) and a couple of drivers and other stuff. I do select other things like Wordpad, Write and Paint.

But I really dont understand whats happening, Just tried the entire process again. When I want to apply the changes in vLite, it asks if you want to "apply for current image (HOMEBASIC) or all images."

I have Ultimate! Why does it say Homebasic suddenly? In RT7Lite I applied changes for ALL images (normally I only do Ultimate). So i dont understand.

Perhaps it has something to do with the names I set in ImageX (when capturing you have to fill in name/description twice).

Here are my ini/inf files. I used your sp1_v2 and modified it to my needs. It shouldn't make such a big difference right?

I get the error message I posted above.

setuperr.log says something about cmiadapter\installers.cpp not found and a file that is suppose to be in windows\winsxs\.

Perhaps I should just do method 6 (just select winsxs for removal in RT7Lite, don't use GimageX and VLite but not sure wich updates will work and wich won't work..

Customized SP1_v2.7z
