Vista X64 SP1 "install size" vs Vista X32 SP1 "instal

Hi all

Here are the figures:-

- Factory slipstreamed Vista X32 SP1 Install DVD "fully stipped with 1.1.6RC" gives an installed HDD footprint of ~ 1.1gig excluding swap file.

- User slipstreamed Vista X64 SP1 Install DVD "fully stipped with 1.1.6RC" gives an installed HDD footprint of ~ 5.4gig excluding swap file.

I presumed and expected the HDD install size would be around 2X the Vista X32 size BUT its nearly 4.5X the size of Vista X32 SP1 ?!?!?.

I am using the -extreme switch for each and am checking WINSXS for each

-> is it possible that the the difference is due to X32 being a Factory sliplstream and X64 being a user slipstream ?

**OR**

=> is this normal ?

Thanks,

Ben

PS: FWIW, the RAM footprint for each above is very similar:- Vista X32 SP1 is ~ 230meg and Vista X64 SP1 is ~ 290meg

Really ??

From memory, I would have sworn that when I last did a full-vlite-stripped install of Vista X64 [ pre-SP1 ] the HDD installed size was around ~2.5gig (?)

Why whould SP1 on a slipstreamed Vista X64 have more than doubled its HDD installed size ?

OR

Is my memory of the installed size of Vista X64 [pre-SP1] wrong ?

Well ..... I re-did the Boot CD / DVD and this is what I got:-

- Factory slipstreamed Vista X32 SP1 Install CD "fully stipped with 1.1.6RC" gives a Boot CD size of ~490meg

- User slipstreamed Vista X64 SP1 Install DVD "fully stipped with 1.1.6RC" gives a Boot DVD size of ~1.1gig

Does this seem right to other Vlite users ?

Yep...my x64 vLite discs weigh in right around 1.1-1.2 gigs.

Hi Bilar

Is your install DVD a Vista X64 SP1 or Vista X64 Original ?

Is it pretty-much a full strip ?

Also, regardless of which one it is, when you install it, excluding the swap file, how much HDD room does it take up ?

Ben

PS: My Vista X64 SP1 with a full-strip using 1.1.6 RC gives me an installed sized of ~5.4gig excluding the swap file ?!?!?
