Hi guys, I recently made a new wim of both W7. What i did is a clean install of OS, add A. reader, Office and a few soft more. Also W. Update.


The problem is the size, W7 32 is 4gb and 64 is more than 7!!! I believe that something was wrong with some update, because i was looking the size while adding a modification.


Is normal the difference of size? both OS was made almost at same time.


Thanks in advance!

Oh sure it can get that large. It depends on what you're putting in there. I have, for example these 64bit images:


Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64, no drivers, no updates: 2.9GB

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64, Office 2010, no drivers, no updates: 5.0GB

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64, drivers, updates, no Office: 5.1GB


What kind of compression are you using? I always use the FAST option.
