Howto: Heavy slimmed down XP WITH functionality

270 posts in this topic

The Making

makin cd atm, just copied files to XPCD directory

starting nLite

choosing the directory

thickin all options, except for slipstreaming a servicepack, coss I use xp pro with sp2 slipstreamed

Now at hotfix point, adding:

RVMUpdatepack1.2.2Lite

XPize uAE (v1.2)

At driver point:

The NVIDIA chipset drivers.

The Marvel network card drivers.

My sata driver (text mode).

At remove components point, I choose these dependencies:

Printers

Camera's

And these components I dont remove:

-Aplications

*Paint

-Drivers

*Ethernet (LAN)

*SCSI/RAID

-Hardware Support

*ALI IDE Bus Driver

*CMD IDE Bus Driver

*Firewire (1394) Support

*Intel IDE BUS Driver

*Logical Disk Manager

-Languages

*Dutch(Netherlands)

-Multimedia

*MIDI audio support

-Network

*Internet Explorer

*Internet Explorer Core

*Map Netowrk Drivers Wizard

-Operating System Options

*Disk and Profile Quota

*Extra Fonts

*File System Filter Manager

-Services

*DHCP Client

Then at advanced I choose these items not to be removed:

msconfig.exe

scrnsave.scr

ftp.exe

ping.exe

route.exe

nbtstat.exe

netstat.exe

net.exe

tftp.exe

ipconfig.exe

tracert.exe

Then at the remove box, I put the files listed in clints nLite.ini.

Then some tweaks, important ones:

do not parse autoexec.bat

dont page kernel

dont precache

Installing and Analizing

Made ISO, put disk.sys in my i386 (somehow nLite doesnt do that) and went installing.

There were some quite file not found errors during install, also in windows.

Internet Explorer didnt function properly, MSN wouldnt start. HELP OMFG WTF DONT U HAVE MSN CLINT? anyway :angel , couldnt get defrag software to work and printerspool service was also gone. also some stuff I needed for webcam was gone.

So I went to the remove files list of clint's nlite.ini to check if I had to keep files.

Luckely I know wot most files do so I took about 25 files away needed for:

internet explorer

defrag software

msn

webcam

printers

network browsing on lanparties ;P

The Conclusion

Now after 2 installs I can run all of my tried programs. Everything seems ok with the printer service and imaging service, though I dont have a printer here, and I wont go through the trouble to get my webcam workin in virtual pc. So the next thing i will do is make one final iso for testing in virtual pc. Just to make sure. And then I willburn that iso, format and go live with that cd. ^_^

difference between his cleanup/pre-removal and my cleanup is.. about 80% wot I remove is the same has he removed.. but where I stopped with unknown files, he went on n just backupped them incase he needed them. I was gonna do the same thing but lil more carefull. with "last acces time-stamp" I was gonna check after 2 weeks of using programs n stuff, wot windows aint using. but he did it the hardway :P

my nLite brought own xp install down to 290mb, and with stuff of my own, to 224mb... this is with IE, with printers, with dhcp, with imaging stuff.

with my nLite but preremoval from clints ini, my xp install got 274mb.. then with a combined removal of my cleanups and his cleanups it went down to

200mb :D

quite a record since i use a LOT of programs (n games), and i need a LOT of dependencies.

in the attachments u see:

*my settings from nLite

*my regtweaks, to be used at T12 just like clints, with the $OEM folder way

*1 cleanup file, mine and clints merged :) there were no files I removed from the cleanup files exept for the ones that werent there when I had a fresh install, apearently nLite removed those.

ps: Oh yeah, feels good to be back in action ^^

well more like Pro's with problems :P newbies should stick with nLite :) (no offence people, but this if u do this, ur bound to experience loads of errors)

and I think dirtwarrior wants to see the oemfolder :P and thats pretty much it... it isnt bigger.. I manually do my cleanup, dont have extra programs, dont use minlogon :)

Not bad Fridge, although skimming through your software applications list, I cannot see any programs that rely heavily on Windows components - indeed most of those programs are in my "AppsThatDontNeedToBeReinstalled" folder - several megabytes of well coded programs that run straight from the folder, without countless registry entries.

Gotta love 7-Zip too ;)
