So I recently made a few of my own slimmed windows 7 versions various ways, and most recently did this one:
http://www.msfn.org/...64-bit-updated/ (7elite64, slightly modified)
(I also tried dead0's but ran into problems; Quite strange IMO)
It was 4.8GB installed, which is satisfactory for me.
I then installed 35 of the critical windows updates - none for IE8, all of the bugfixes, all of the dotNET ones, then just a handful of others (DST or something, none of the reliability ones)
The download size was like 35MB maybe.
After installation of the updates, my windows size became 5.6 GB.
That's 800MBs from windows updates.... (and not even all of them)
I was wondering, does slipstreaming these updates change that amount of space dramatically? by how much?
Most importantly, is there a way to shrink the windows folder after the updates are applied on an installed system?
