Hi, Windows 8 consumer preview version is released. Anybody try out to reduce Windows 8 size? I'm not sure if the method for Windows 7 lite is workable on Windows 8.

try 7customizer & and xml creator to remove stuff

its the best way

This might be a dumb question, but if you compare the files in the embedded standard template to the files in the standard full install.wim and removed the differences, how is that different than just installing the embedded OS to begin with? Why go to all the extra work? What does that get you as an advantage?

Licensing is also a reason. Lots of people will have a W8 license, how many will have W8TC?

of course there is need expert knowledge about operating system fundamentals. but i worked a lot about winpe stuff. i have general knowledge about files and what they need for. if you change licensing files with embedded standart and windows 8 they are exactly same stuff.

it is not so much difficult if you know what you do. does not need any lite program to use. can be done hand made easyly.

They are made with embedded file lists and windows 8 file compare method. But they are windows 8, not embedded.

This sounds awesome. Can you provide us with a full folder/files structure from the WIM in your final ISO? You can use the lst archive mode in total commander that will create an archive with all the folder structure and files, but not the actual files: http://www.ghisler.com/plugins.htm - DirDisk or DirDisk Extended plugin must be installed in Total Commander.

I think many of us would appreciate it :)

Thanks,

@Kullenen

Hi, can you make a guide for this? I'd also like to try this on my Windows 7. Do I need WAIK to apply the template found in Windows Embedded Toolkit, then make a comparing list using total commander? apply the list it on Windows 7 ISO? also what is the filename of that template. Thanks!

I am stunned by the fact people are so stubborn and just won't let go off this outdated tool.

If you still insist on deleting parts of the OS, which is ten levels above pointless and useless btw, learn how to do it properly yourself.
