Winnt.sif...well, as Milgathia stated you can put your own in data or overwrite before making iso...it's not crucial, you can put any winnt.sif, just it's good to have those sfc and driver signature entries.
Winnt.sif maker tool exists, made by bored i think. Search for it.
@Rudi1...yey...about empty folders, i'm still searching from where they get made, i'm affraid if it's syssetup or layout then there is no cure, they have signature, can't be touched.
@bigman1, just don't select Music Sample option...this is second time i got this bug report, putting it on known bug list, thanx
About cursors...i'll see that, it's a new option so there could be an error

You'll probably only be able to delete those by disabling WFP and deleting them via a batch script.

One question: why is the scrnsave.scr needed?
Keep up the good work nuhi
Forgot one thing: will it be possible in a future release to select what printers drivers aren't removed?
Because I use the XPdriver for my HP Deskjet 840C.

I have tried it with drivers left in there, and with all the drivers out. No difference. Stupid setup from nVidia, first time I wish I didn't have this nForce chipset. Maybe the setup uses something I do not know, but so far I only know that the setup requires DirectX9 for install but it warns you if you don't have DirectX9. Is there anything else that the setup could need? I just left out everything that is recommended for removal except for wordpad, IE, QoS, firewall, Multilanguage support, error reporting, autoupdate, security center.
It's just sucky that everything else works just fine, but even if I go into the hardware manager and select the ethernet card, I choose to install the driver from a specific location, browse to the right folder with the right drivers in it, it doesn't find the drivers... I guess this has something to do with the GART drivers that need to be installed too, maybe this is because VMWare can't acces the chipset the way it's supposed to or not? I have no idea.

About printers...it's hard to tell because they are all in one file, listen what you can try...edit ntprint.inf in your i386 folder and find section with your printer, copy file names used in that particular printer and put it to "File keep box", it may work.
@AztecMystic, that's a serious problem, tell me, you experienced that only on virtual machines or in the real pc too ?
Normaly virtual machines have their own emulated hardware, windows will not see it as nforce.
@Famer, acctually i was thinking about it, when "16bit" and music sample bug are solved it could be named rc1.
In a week probably.

setupmgr.exe is what you're searching for.
The CAB compression algorithm wasn't developped by Microsoft, originally it was called LZX and was created on tha Amiga Platform many years ago.
Then they've purchased from the authors the technology and (maybe) recluted the creators inside the devteam.
I've just downloaded the new version, I've checked a little it but... (surprise) no java eradicating option was inside!!! :°
P.S.: put an option to do not eradicate the DRM when you omit the mediaplayer from the installation!

Neither SP1a nor SP2 contain the MSJVM. Neither does Win2K SP4 or Win2K3. Why would he need to?

Now a few little things:
The "saving settings" (T-9 > T-1) appears to take ages while with a normal install this was the part that went really fast... just wondering.
After this clean install with beta9 (which had a super boot ) a certain COM surrogate crashed, don't know what that is, but it's the first time I ever had that happen to me.
Anyway thx for the help and kudos (again) for the prog nuhi hehe

@AztecMystic, first i'm glad it was a false alarm
(T-9 > T-1), never heard of it, probably something you added for unattended install...it's definatelly not nlite soo...
About COM...have you removed Distributed Transaction Coordinator ??
I'm glad it's almost working flawless ... enjoy in tha' speed

I use nlite Beta9 to reduction XPsp1a. On the setup process. XP report can't find Mouse Cursors like appstar2.ani appstar3.ani and so on.
follow is my option&log file.
Number of downloads: 21
