What method is working today for extreme removal of Windows 7 Ultimate
Posted 08 May 2012 - 03:40 AM
It looks like they didn't get updated to support SP1 so I wonder what extreme method is working today for Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit?

I have seen some references to what's called RT7-Lite which may/may-not work(?).
HTH and Good luck!

You can definitely use vLite on Windows 7 successfully. To make vLite play nice you'd have to sysprep a VM install of Win7 SP0 upon which you install SP1. After performing sysprep you can then capture the image via Imagex (I create the VM as a VHD using VirtualBox, so one can directly mount the VHD and do the capture via Imagex). You can then mount the captured image (the install.wim) and remove the SP1 backup files. Then you export the image (basically a re-save) to make it even smaller and you have your Win7 SP1 that can be used with vLite (whereas Win7 SP1 official cannot be used with vLite).
I know several people who have done it. I personally have not, but that's because I do not slim my OS install.
Cheers and Regards

I have made some progress making a lite RTM version, got it down to about 4GB so far, vlite 1.2 doesn't work for me so I am using 1.1.6 which is much more functional and stable, with the help of dead0's bat's the winsxs is down to about 1 GB

All work great but my OS is 15GB on C:, is too much, or not?
