Windows 7 "Keep" List

Recommended Posts

Did you try the configuration I posted above? I didn't try to use IE8, but everything else works in every regard.

I didn't try your ini yet but, I get everything working except IE8, like you've mentioned.

I tried non-manipulation vlited iso and it works fine, then I tried removing tabletPC only with broken IE8. (or better yet broken "internet option" cause IE8 runs with non working menus and right clicks.)

I'm gonna do a little more testing but my wild guess right now is maybe I'm trying this on japanese 7100 causing a unique problem.

Other test I did was using WAIK for vista sp1 but this one crashes vlite during the final stage. This is why I'm using the one that initially came with earlier version of vlite and had many success creating vlited vista in the past.

Anyways thanks for the input. :)

Sure. Up until just now, I hadn't tried IE8 with this configuration, but just did, and it's working as it should, complete with right click menu. I'm quite certain I removed the Tablet PC option, so I think your hunch about a unique issue must be correct.

What was the size of your x64 .iso when all was said and done?

With System components removed, I also have no issues with installing, but I do have issues with Multimedia, network or services. If I remove the items from one of these (except those with dependencies from a not removed component-group) on my working installation, then the installation fails. I can understand people are getting pretty annoyed by this. Then again, why are we doing this :-)

I tried vLiting W7 7100 today. Removed relatively few things. I have been using nLite quite a bit lately for both XPx64 (main OS) and XPx86 (want to put it on a laptop).

W7 installed OK, but wouldn't do it unattended. I entered the user name and it has no dropdown for timezones in vLite. So it asks for a username and the timezone during installation.

Also, is there any RunOnce option in vLite? I didn't see any way to run a batch file for addons like I did in nLite.

Thanks.

Thanks.

As i have said previously.Do not use the Unattended tab in vLite when vliting Windows 7.The unattended part will not work correctly and on worse case install will fail.Use WSIM(Windows System Image Manager) form WAIK(Windows Automated Installation Kit).WAIK for Windows 7 RC can be downloaded here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...35-d30ead27ef72 .

For me Internet Explorer is a no go: causes installation to fail.

File and Printer Sharing, IIS, Windows Connect Now, Windows Firewall are also suspicious as well as some other components from the Services section (Computer Browser?). Going for install nr. 20 or so...

[edit]

Ok, no go for me are:

IE (installation error)

Windows Firewall (installation error)

ICS (installation error)

IPSec (installation error and winipsec.dll error)

QoS (No possiblity to add a WLAN manually)

Welcome Center (keeps appearing in vLite after removal)

[/edit]

Ok, for me I think I can not slim it down any further than the attached preset. I will try IE seperately and maybe Windows firewall as well. However I think, this is the best I can slim it down to: 1.51GB install.wim, 7.6GB installed. I do need to protect some files, because I remove IPsec (error-emssage at installation) and Windows Error Reporting (2 files, reported in 1 of the posts above; not tested by me) and get 5 warnings about dependancies.

yeah but IE is around 70% of the reason a virus gets on a pc, the other 20% is becuse of the problem between the keyboard and chair and the last 10% through osmosis...so the story ends there for me, I really hate IE :realmad: :realmad: :realmad:

wrong!

IE is safe when you have UAC on! Now IE runs in protected mode (Low IL) and so viruses can't copy themselves into the system.
