]This thread is in an incomplete state and is based in my Windows 7 DVD (Windows 7 Ultimate N SP1 x64 English) and it'll be updated as much as I want. Any help would be appreciated. :thumbup

Hello there. First of all, this is a project inspired by both, WinterStorm 2050's "Components to Keep" thread from Rockers Team Forums and LUZR4LIFE's "nLite Component Removal Explanation" thread from Wincert Forums (this thread helped me a lot when I was a little brat) and is the fruit of years of research and learning.

This thread is aimed for those who want to slim the hell down their Windows 7 WIMs but are just beginners in this field: it will try to help you decide whether you need a component or not.

WARNING: this thread will not include the things you need to keep for 3rd party software or other Microsoft software. Just for everyday stuff and Internet. If you have doubts, you can PM me, ask in the comments or check the RT 7 Lite's component description (which, by the way, I'm trying to improve with this thread).

*Another thing, I'm the author of this post. This was first published on Rockers Team Forums. This ain't no copy-paste. :angry:

BASIC INFORMATION



This thread is based on what I remove and what I keep. That said, the final product is a fully-functional, stable and slimmed-the-hell-down ISO file. If you want my Lastsession.inf file straight up without having to read all this crap, then here it is.

Lastsession.inf


So, let's get on with the basics.
*The original "install.wim" file is 2.429 GB large.
*My final "install.wim" file is 1.097 GB. So that means that 1.332 GB is taken down from the original one. Of course the size could be even smaller, because there are plenty of components I don't know if I could remove them.
*All this means ~55% of the original image, is crap (at least for me).
*Please note that the only tasks I activate in RT 7 Lite are Integration (to integrate my LAN driver), Components removal and Customization (to remove every Aero theme but one).

Found an issue:
Removing the "Microsoft MSDSM" component in the "System" section of "Accessories" breaks disk management

It was selected for removal in Winterstorm2050's most recent "lastsession.ini".

Strange because that's working for me ... I'm using "Manage" from right clic on "My Computer" and disk management is working ...

B)

Yeah, man. Removing MSDSM doesn't breaks Disk Management. Either, you removed Virtual Disk service, or you removed Disk Management from Microsoft Common Console Document.

Yeah, posted too early on that. It seems that removing the Microsoft driver from "Storage Controllers" section within Drivers section is the root cause of the error that I receive, not MSDSM.
Can you guys check if removing the driver causes the same problem for you?

@billybully: I didnt touch MMC, coz when I do, I get this additional MMC.exe window asking me to select between 32-bit or 64-bit components for MMC, that I dont get if I leave everything in MMC. Do you get that "popup" when you remove the items your mention in your orginal post?

@theKramer About the Microsoft driver, again, you're wrong. I remove all of the Storage Controller drivers and Virtual Disk is still working. About MMC, yes, removing anything there will make a popup appear every time you try to open it. Post your last session and I'll check what's wrong, OK?

Strange, because when I added back in the Microsoft driver in Storage Controllers, I was able to add VHD's. Maybe with my lastsession, it causes that issue to occur, coz I have removed other stuff...

Anyway, here is my "working" lastsession:

To create a Virtual Hard Drive, you need that Microsoft driver... I thought you were talking about things like formatting a drive or create a partition, y'know xd

Removing Disk Defragmenter breaks Disk Management -> Shrink Volume.
Just in case someone needs it. :)

Applying WinReducer for Windows 7 will make my ISO lighter than 1GB.

Old thread, but still usable.

 

1. Removing the Microsoft 'core' drivers for Scanners & Printers will cause the driver package to fail. Also, removing the Canon drivers will cause older canon printers (eg. i560 and others in that series) that have to get the driver using Microsoft's auto update search to fail. Error message: "Can not find the core driver package." That "core driver package" Is whatever is in the MS entry and the Canon entry even though there is no i560 (and others) printer listed. 

 

2. Removing "Personalization" from the Control Panel will cause a Explorer error message if you try to use it from the Desktop context menu (right click) making the function completely unavailable which is a huge problem.

 

3. I have found another problem with removing another CP entry, but I haven't found which one is responsible yet. It removes the Pictures & Music tabs ability to be changed (removed) in the Start menu.


When not in use, turn off the juice.

Think of someone else instead of just yourself. There is far more to it than your utility bill.
