Windows 7 "Keep" List

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I've tested a vlited version of Win7 RC x86 on a Virtual Machine (with last version of VMware), just removing all the components that are supposed to be safe. I get a BSOD in the 2nd part of the installation, after "starting services", it says "Memory error" or so. Non-vlited Win7 RC works fine on Virtual Machine, so it may be some component/s...

thx for your work

Would need to see a last session.ini out of your vlite presets directory

Awesome thread, makes removing items using vLite much easier.

I removed all the "Safe" components that was listed, hopefully everything will go alright.

All the items in the safe list mean the OS will function normally, but certain programs may not work (i use alternative software) or other annoyances, but the OS itself will work fine.

Ran into a problem. In your "Safe" list you have IPsec Policy Agent listed but when you click Next it says its needed for Windows Update.

What should i do? Remove windows update or keep IPsec Policy Agent?

---Edit---

Nvm, scrolled back to the top of thread and noticed you updated your list. Keeping IPsec Policy Agent :wacko:

Ok I am tired and going to turn in but the fact remains that something is causing the install to fail with the error message involving (...the windows installation could not be configured to your hardware, etc...) hopefully I will figure out since everything is a suspect as of now, I am really getting impatient with windows 7, ive spent over 24 hours staring at this vlite but something still causes it to fail, I dont think windows update is needed its something else... errr, heres my Server 2008 R2x64RC last session.ini, if anyone sees anything fishing let me know im going to bed Last_Session.ini

I'm pretty sure Error Reporting is a no-no. It is for Windows 7, at any rate.

I have stumbled into a showstopper bug possibly.Lately(well starting from Beta) ive had issue where Windows 7 builds become completely unbootable.

Basicly i installed a build and used it for x amount of time.When i tryied booting it a few days later it showed only the Starting Windows text and no boot animation appeared.This has always been consistent with these.Same place-same symptoms.Nothing also helped.

Startup Repair only gave vague idea what might be the case.System files integrity check produced code 0xa(not 0x0 wich means no erors) and once SR said A recent driver installation or upgrade may be preventing the system from booting.Other time it gave more vague Unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused this problem.The F8 advanced options were useless too.Safe mode always got stuck after loading the first line:

C:\Windows\system32\system.Other options(as ntbtlog.txt,Last known good configuration etc seemed to not work at all).So now im(hopefully) close to figuring it out.I installed RC build.Only created one Restore point and then left it alone fow few days(that was monday).Today it booted fine.Ill wait for few more days to be sure.

The only differences with other install(that became non-boot) are(things i did back in that install that could account for this problem):

Installed Nvidia Display drivers(185.81).Installed Marvell Yukon NIC driver(Win7 includes older out-of-box) and installed ACPI ATK110 Utility(whatever it is) that Windows Update offered me.

Additionally on my dualboot system(Vista Ultimate x86 SP2) Diskeeper was allowed to defragment the Windows 7 partition.

In this install(that so far seems to be alive) i did not install any drivers and i completely disabled Diskeepers ability to defragment the Win7 partition.Lets see.Im suspecting either the ACPI utility or Diskeeper.If this install survives then im first gonna enable diskeeper and see if install boots after few days.if it does then im gonna install the ACPI utility and so on...

Do not select "Unattended" at all? Can you explain why this is breaking setup?

Hi Gunnar,

that's because MS changed some settings of the AutoUnattended.XML. vLite creates the old Vista Settings and now Setup fails. Install the RC WAIK to see the changes.

Strange - I managed to vlite 7100 x64 and Server R2, with configurations that resulted in a smaller install size than even my most extreme vLited Vista disk ever did. I've included my W7 profile:

I've kept Window Media Center because I need digital tv support, but if you don't need it, it can go as well.

Ill look at later tonight, it looks like you didnt remove as much as me, I can get vista down to 1200mb and my windows 7 failures were 1900mb

Both W7 and Server disks were around 2100; without Media Center, my W7 disk was 1950mb.

In the instance of W7, there was just one strange anomaly, easily rectified. When the setup wizard gets to the desktop setup portion of the install, and you choose your location, (home, work, public), the wizard would just hang there. I found that if I just disconnected my LAN before hand, it would boot to the desktop. Once you get to the desktop, if you plug the LAN back in, it'll ask you to choose your location, and will then correctly finish the wizard.

Incidentally, while i could also get my Vista x64 vLite disk down around 1450, when the final installations are compared, W7 actually occupies less disk space than Vista...at least in my application.

I kept close to the list, but somehow it doesnt work, the installation aborts at the end.

Used latest VirtualBox for testing. Untouched 7 works.
