[Method #5

use RT lite first and then use VLite to remove winsxs

here the config files thats works so far

http://www.2shared.com/file/29-X4z8D/WIN_INSTALL.html

notice: after applying RT Lite and then Vlite u wont need to delete pending.xml or whatever

For this method to work, are there any components of Windows 7 that we should not remove using RT 7 Lite and vLite respectively?

Thank you for your explanation. Yes, I realize that there are lists of safe-to-remove components for both vLite and RT 7 Lite respectively. It is just that you choose to use both of them together to slim down Windows 7. I was wondering whether removing certain components via RT 7 Lite may prevent the Windows image to be successfully slimmed down by vLite. Do you consider this factor in your config file, WIN_INSTALL.rar?

It is okay, aviv00. Don't worry about this matter. Perhaps, I was thinking way too much. Nevertheless, thank you very much for sharing your config file.

I integrate the microsoft updates to ISO, and I delete the winsxs, not be a problem later to uninstall updates, what do I do?

first remove winsxs and after incorporating the updates?

Do not delete the file "pending.xml" and change something?

thanks ;)

Hmm using method 5 (simply doing RT7Lite first, remove all the components you want and then use vLite only to remove WinSxS) would mean a drastic drop in installation size? But what are the side effects?

Or should I use RT7Lite to remove winsxs (is that possible?) and then use vlite to do the same?

I thought using RT7Lite 2.6.0 would be the best way to remove components first and then use vlite to only remove winsxs.

Also, I am currently integrating SP1 in a fresh Win7 dvd (x64) with RT7Lite... anyone tried that and removed winsxs afterwards with vlite?

And do I still need to install kb947821?

Thanks for the quick reply. I used your set in RT7Lite but I did deselect all drivers (to keep them) except for floppy.

---> But.. WinSxS was NOT selected using your set! So I selected it myself... because thats the whole point right? Removing it in RT7Lite first and then in vLite.

Now creating an image, I will use this image in vLite to remove WinSxS completely using your set...

Oh ok then I misunderstood the whole point :)

I thought it was necessary to remove winsxs with rtlite first then with vlite too.

But now I understand RTLite is only used to remove other components.

So for WinSxS removal, you actually don't need rt7lite at all.. :)

hello every winsxs killers'

just to give info:

i have done it in French win7 by

Method #2 : Forcely finishing setup by running cmds while the setup

on a vlited 7 pro x64 native French, right now on a vm it works and should work on my T61 thinkpad.

windows seven + 500Mb of drivers is about 4.5Gb hdd used (-hibernate -pagefiles.sys -rescue)

about 250mb for winsxs.

why i did it , because 50Gb ssd and to verify if winsxs grow up after this mod:

with a standard winsxs, after installing ms office 2003, i have space hdd growth plus 1Gb!!!

on a xp it is about 400Mb, yes the same prog take 1gb on w7 and 400mb on a xp, strange...

so installing my office now without winsxs it add about 50Mb in winsxs...

and save 600Mb!!!

then every prog i should install won't mod a lot th winsxs folder, and save my ssd :)

did not verify winupdate, but i dislike winupdate, i prefere DIY update

i am to try method 3

Method #3 : before u apply winsxs removal using vlite install the os on vmware

then sysperp /gen

Hey aviv00, unfortunately for the leaked official build of Win7 incl SP1, method 5 is not working anymore. Using the last session files for RT7Lite and vLite, I am getting an error when vlite is rebuilding the image, same error you see here:

Press ok --> finalizes. But I cannot install windows with this image.. :( too bad seemed to be the best method!

EDIT: sorry just saw the new config files for SP1 in your first post!! :D going to try those right now :)
