  1. I think the answer is in the fifth post here: http://www.administrator.de/wissen/powershell-windows-10-modern-apps-startmenü-anheften-entfernen-pin-unpin-287368.html
  2. I've compared Enterprise and Enterprise N, all files I've checked are identical on both except for settings.dat and settings.dat.LOG1, located in C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\Settings Both files are 32 kB in Enterprise (and Pro), and 8 kB in Enterprise N. Edit: They're just shortcuts to the Store now. IIRC, before the official launch of 1511 it actually installed the apps when connected to internet, but not anymore.
  3. Maybe this can be of help, 10586 Enterprise N lacks these pending apps, the regular Enterprise got them. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/66640-How-to-Make-a-Windows-10-quot-Super-LTSB-quot-ISO
  4. There are 5 uninstalled apps (Twitter, Minecraft, Flipboard, Wunderlist and Candy Crush Saga) in build 10586 that starts installing when internet is connected. They can not be uninstalled until they have finished installing. Removing Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager in NTLite results in an install without the pending apps, but I don't know if this causes any issues. It would be great if it was possible to remove these pending apps in NTLite.
  5. Wasn't the original meaning of a Service Pack to just include all updates and hotfixes in a one package which can be either installed or slipstreamed? Sure, but the difference between now and then is that it's not a matter of life and BSOD anymore. Who said anything about components? Well that's what I said, right? I guess we're all a bit spoiled by the overall stability of W7 RTM compared to older versions. W7 RTM is 3 years old now, and still usable. Of course we all use W7 with SP1 now, but RTM is still usable. Imagine using XP RTM in 2004, it was a whole different story.. You can't com
  6. That list doesn't reflect the reality, which is: 1 - The need for service packs depends partly on how half baked the RTM was. Seriously, how many of those versions were usable and stable from day one? W7 was far better out of the box than Vista, XP or 2000 was. Dunno about NT 4.0 or NT 5.2 since I never used the RTM versions of them. 2 - How much better did W7 actually get with SP1? Sure, you didn't have to install loads of updates, but the overall impression was the same as with RTM. W7 RTM was stable. 3 - The reason why XP SP3 exists, why Vista was delayed, and why Vista RTM sucked was all b
  7. Licensing is also a reason. Lots of people will have a W8 license, how many will have W8TC?
  8. Do I need to have WAIK for Windows 7 installed when using RT 7lite? I'm running WAIK Vista SP1 now. Edit: Seems like I need a new WAIK..
  9. Kullenen_Ask: I saw your total disk usage, but how large is C:\Windows ? Thanks.
  10. 1 - Have you tried splitting the ISO with vlite? http://www.vlite.net/help/iso.html Read the documentation next time before posting, or use google. 2 - Use a USB memory. http://www.msfn.org/board/forum/157-install-windows-from-usb/
  11. It wouldn't work anyway. http://superuser.com/questions/179550/change-windows-7-professional-to-windows-7-professional-n
  12. An alternative is to download a different copy from Microsoft with WMP included.
  13. I used RT7lite to remove features, and after that vlite to remove winsxs. Surprisingly, the installation never stopped, no need for oobe.exe. KB947821 have been updated august 23. It didn't show up at WU, but can be downloaded: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=kb947821%20%22windows%207%22 Unlike earlier version, this one can be installed manually, just start the MSU.
  14. Nope, not if it's done the right way, see link above. I have used it and it worked. It's not totally removed, it's reduced to about 200 MB (32 bit) with vlite. If you just delete the folder you'll just get a BSOD. WU can't install all updates, but that's expected since so many functions are removed (it's impossible to update something that isn't there, after all), and that occurs even if winsxs is left untouched.
  15. No, it's possible to make it 1.3 GB installed. Dunno how much functionality is gone tho. I managed to make a 1.24 GB ISO for W7 Professional 32 bit. When installed in VMWare it uses 3.7 GB (pagefile excluded). I followed the guide for what's safe to remove, so it's not anything extreme. If I had removed winsxs it should've been 2.2 GB.
