Noob here. I may be here a while, or be gone in a flash if it turns out that I'm wasting everyone's time -including my own.
Allow me to explain; Objective:
To use the most stripped down version of Windows possible -my purposes are to only use certain programs, namely:
MS Office (specifically: Word, Excel, Access, Outlook)
I don't need anything else!!! I have a Windows XP Home edition, and really just need Windows XP to run these programs, as well as access my company data base which runs in Windows.
Problem: I was originally told to use Windows XP or 7 with a PE installation. I was then told, that this would not work, and was guided here. I'm hopeful from what I've read so far.
Catch (if there is one)
I'm running a MacBookPro, and need nLite to work through a virtual environment like Parallels, which I own.
Can this be done? Am I on the right track?
Thanks for reading, and thanks for your time!
