What folders can safetly deleted from WIndows 7 DVD

Recommended Posts

Deleting method posted by ricktendo64 doesn not work when install.wim contains more than one edition. Tested in a VM.

Deleting what from sources folder?

Everything? clg files?

That was my bad, sorry everything works fine (sources boot.wim, install.wim, *.clg, setup.exe , boot, efi). It was not working because:

I think i've found a bug of windows 7 dvd setup: I don't know if depends on localization,but adding a folder called "Extra" in the main root will result in an error during setup (some files are not found on the dvd...). I solved renaming that folder. :)
