too big image

i make nlited XP and at the end folder is 696 MB big which is nice for CD

but when i select nlite to create image it makes it 705 MB

so what is so big that it has to enlarge the installation by 9 MB ?

isn't just packing it into iso pure storage with some small compression ?

it shouldn't be so big...

ah nice its back to 695 MB lol

just to ask (dont wish to open new thread)

now when iso is made by nLite

is it already bootable ? (it works in VM but dont want to waste CD to findout it isnt :P)

and can i use nero to burn it (since nlite lowest speed is 16x and i want to do 4x)

or it MUST be via nlite burned directly ?

The size of the original XPCD is about 593mb.

Why has your XPCD grown like that?

If you`re using nLite to integrate some things,

why don`t you use nLite to shrink it either?

i added new direct x 9 (100 MB), few portable apps (71 MB), + few new OS components (9 MB)

in any case when all is finished as stated above true size is below 700

but nevermind, i removed valueadd folder so its ok :P

Ain't nothin wrong with my addon.

You only need the i386 folder. You can delete the Docs, DotNetFX, Support, and ValueAdd folders. That's about 60MB. In the i386 folder, you can delete Win9xMig, Win9xUpg, and WinntUpg folders if you are not upgrading an older Windows installation. That's another 40MB.

@redxii:

i didn't said something is wrong, i just think that if theres even small chance

that some file might be missing and some X game might need X component

i do not wish to find myself to wait for some possible fixes but rather to use

whole bundle (i know it is bloat) and be safe :)

also regarding erasing these folders... "My BASE image is 383 megs" thats bizzare :D

may i ask if vista has something simmiliar to remove to cut size the iso ? :P

(i cant go lower than 1.3GB via vlite) :P
