Windows 7 Vlite Config...

Recommended Posts

So, I'm trying to work out a configuration for Windows 7.

I've viewed the various threads on here, and put a provisional list together.

I tried to install, but after the first reboot it hung just saying "Installing Windows" - no hard disk activity etc... Left for 30mins.

Here's what I took out:

Accessibility

Games

Mobility Centre

Welcome Centre

Wordpad

Media Centre

Music + Video Samples

Sample Pictures

Screensavers

Shell Event Sounds

Sideshow

Sound Disc

Bitlocker

Disk Quota

Parental Controls

Security Centre

UNIX Subsystem

Tablet PC Components

Windows Defender

Easy Transfer.

Any ideas?

Yeah for some reason yo need to keep games I think. I can get rid of inbox games and premium games but not the other one, also you need shell sounds for some reason those 2 knock the installer out. I'm going to try and vlite further to see if i can drop some more stuff. Oh and which build have you been working with. AFAIK the only vlite-able builds are 7100 RC - 7600 RTM.

You also need the basics like error reporting and a few others.

In my testing i have found out that you have to remove the Snipping Tool package using DISM to be able to remove Game Explorer using vLite or your install will fail.

I will try DISM ASAP :) Does it use the same technique as vlite in respect to finding the 7 files ?

remove "Welcome Centre" and "Game Explorer" can cause this on x86
