  1. Thanks Gosh, you were giving good answers 5+ years ago (that I know of) and you still are today.
  2. Why can't you just combine all 3. If its smallest size you are after. Nah, the extreme one is the smallest, of course.
  3. How can you also include the anti-virus right click option? I have the silent install working a treat by extracting the files and running that command to install: CFPCONFG.EXE -i -s At last a proper silent install without all that AutioIt stuff! BUT I don't have any right click option to scan files and folders. I am looking in the registry to see if I can make a reg tweak for it. EDIT: No need for a reg tweak just register the cavshell.dll thats in the COMODO folder and its there, easy.
  4. Did anyone find out why Vista constantly reboots? I am getting the exact same problem, but on Vista SP2 (x86). I am quite sure it is because I removed "winsxs (Component Cache)" and also, added hotfixes. I can: Add hotfixes and not remove the winsxs stuff Remove the winsxs stuff and not add hotfixes I cannot: Add hotfixes and remove winsxs
  5. Quack. What are "feathers"?
  6. I am also eventually going to have a big bat file to remove stuff. So you mean its like "dllcache" was in XP? Always gets me that you could just put a corrupt/edited/nasty version of a file in the dllcache and it would restore that copy to system32, or is that true, I can't remember. It came up with blue text as well that folder, very special!
  7. No I cleared out the Backup folder ages ago, these are the winsxs folders themselves.
  8. How come about 80Mb was taken off the ISO then? Then another 100Mb or so from removing more folders still? Some might be hard links showing size to them where there is none, but others are certainly files.
  9. Has anyone come up with any kind of a list for the folders its safe to remove from winsxs yet? I don't know why Microsoft can't just give them names you can understand. Why do the folders have overly complicated names, for example: x86_microsoft-windows-grouppolicy-base_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_27f9b80248563b76 Why isn't it just called: x86_grouppolicy-base_001_6.1.7600.16385_none_001 ??? Why all the massive numbers? 31bf3856ad364e35? 27f9b80248563b76? Why THOSE numbers! Do we have billions upon billions upon billions of files? Nope. So then why does it have 31bf3856ad364e35 part w
  10. Nope. Check your disk space, maybe theres not enough space to mount the WIM.
  11. The problem is we are using a program made to reduce the size of Windows Vista... on Windows 7. For example, vLite says in "Users/Public" there are over 400Mb of media files. Maybe on Vista thats true, but in Windows 7 these files amount to only 41Mb not 400Mb. vLite says the Speech Support components takes up 450Mb. Maybe on Vista thats true, but in Windows 7 the Speech folder in Windows is merely 172Mb, not over 450Mb. Will there ever be a tool like vLite but for Windows 7? If not then I am not using vLite because I do not even know what it is removing anymore. Totally unrelated things break
  12. Maybe applying the tweak to "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT" like we used to on XP (at the early stage from cmdlines.txt) could work, but in Windows 7 where is the equivelant of "cmdlines.txt" ??? I already tried to make it run from the unattended XML with a <FirstLogonCommand> to run it but nothing changed, it did nopt have Quick Launch. Kel made a Quick Launch enabler CAB file addon for nLite but I have never seen one for Vista and now, the Taskbar in Windows 7 is different anyway, even to Vista. On XP though, all you did was set the Taskbar up, reboot, then export a certain reg key, change the "
  13. Anyone? I tried putting this in the Autounattend.xml between </OOBE> and </component> <FirstLogonCommands> <SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add"> <Order>1</Order> <CommandLine>%systemroot%\Install\QL.cmd</CommandLine> </SynchronousCommand> </FirstLogonCommands> QL.cmd is a simple batch file that just runs a registry file like so: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop] "TaskbarWinXP"=hex:0c,00,00,00,08,00,00,00
  14. Oh god. I put setup.exe back in the sources folder but its giving me that error again about not finding the driver. It worked the other day when I did the same thing - now it doesn't again. Yes I did the install_tweak and I also removed packages first before I used vLite and I removed "Manual Install (setup.exe)" in vLite. Says driver not found but I already made a rough one a few days ago where it works, why! EDIT: Ignore me I was accidentally using setup.exe from the root of the DVD as opposed to the one from the sources folder, both are totally different! This is the same mistake as the oth
  15. It seems near-impossible to have Quick Launch with the divider, enabled upon installation, on Windows 7. Its classed as a "Toolbar" just like in Vista and XP! But exporting "TaskbarWinXP" hex from the "Streams" key (like in XP) doesn't work in 7. I wish they made this for Windows 7. I posted my own long winded post asking really the same, how to enable it so you don't have to do anything manually. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=136570
  16. The decision to remove quick launch is quite baffling, it seems microsoft have gone out of their way to specifically remove the feature.
  17. I never grasped this even on Windows XP, or Vista, although CAB addons were made for nLite to make Quick Launch work. This time its Windows 7 and once more, Microsoft has changed it and hence perhaps has also changed the registry keys from Vista? I do not know the tweak for Vista either. What reg keys do I need to export to save changes (as a reg tweak) to the taskbar? I know to delete these 2 files in the mounted WIM image, this removes the 2 icons on the taskbar next to the blue orb start button: Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBa
  18. OK thanks. You mean the sources folder itself needs setup.exe putting in? I have no setup.exe on the root and no autorun.inf either. Just setup.exe in sources It does work now after using vLite to take out manual setup. EDIT: Nevermind I was being an a$$, 2 setups, of course there's not 2 setups, unless you UPX it and forgot you did it, lol I still don't understand 1 thing: Why is it safe to remove the file vLite put there? I don't know but it is! I mean that CLG file.
  19. Does anyone know which package to remove to allow deletion of the files in the sources folder (manual setup)? Even then vLite gives you a new file in that folder install_Windows 7 ULTIMATE.clg so I am sure you have to keep that at least (and of course the 2 WIM files)? I got errors removing all those packages last time, but then I was using the dead0 bat file and its not for 7600. If you only have to remove one package that allows those files in the sources folder to be removed, which package?

  21. Says this now on Windows 7 final x86. Error while rebuilding image. The file doesn't exist, it seems to rebuild the whole "install.tmp" before it craps out with this error and deletes the .tmp file, before it turns into a .wim file. EDIT: I think I found the problem - my HDD is full.
  22. If I had a dollar for every time... It would shake the Earth if Nuhi made a 7lite but I don't reckon he is. Its possible to remove components with dism.exe though. Don't even ask me "how" but thats how. Someone should make a "WAIK 1.1 Lite" for starters. Nearly swore then, then remembered its MSFN, urgh.
  23. You still need that setting in winnt.sif despite it being on SP2. Well it is on SP2 now but this stupid nag screen still comes up even though the installation had all hotfixes slipstreamed into it. When I visit Windows Update it says that "No high priority updates are needed for your computer". So the winnt.sif entry and disabling of the Windows Firewall is still the only way to stop the nag screen? I don't believe this nag screen is related to the firewall, the nag screen itself will simply be a 1 that needs changing to a 0 or "Shown" changed to 1 or whatever, the Firewall doesn't dictate whe
  24. Thanks, I am chasing my own tail here, hope this makes it work.
  25. Does this mean the only way to stop that nag screen is to disable the Windows Firewall? No thanks!
