Stripping XP to Bare minimum for Windows 7 upgrade.

Recommended Posts

The idea is to Strip XP to absolute minimum, and then "Upgrade" ( The same as Clean Install ) to Windows 7.

However i only have a XP recovery CD from manufacture. Therefore nlite wont work on an Already Installed OS.

Any idea how to create a super small XP activated image file?

I believe your XP folder will not be used and instead be renamed to Windows.old.

For things in Program Files, you could use XPlite to strip your current install bare. Though I would think anything that isn't a 3rd party program would be deleted anyways.

Doc and Settings doesn't really exist in 7 so that will get wiped out after copying your favorites, etc.
