Thats not bad at all, with 2K3 you allways gonna end up with some 35-50mb more than XP with same settings in Nlite..(at least in .998b5).

I'm working on unregistering all those serverrelated components pre/postinstall...my guess is it will land on just a few megs more.

But that is if you just wanna get the "workstationperformance" out of it ofcourse...

..if I tell you I must kill you.. :whistle:

..nah, joking aside..I have spent a couple of weeks on checking all those Dll's dependencies, registryvalues, Snapincalls...and so on..I have removed some stuff like Shared Folders and Performance Monitor..(not for network)..and removed/unregistered registryentries for them so I will not have any popups at all.

Same for Services, I have only 12-14 services remaning in system, and no "dead meat"..still have DHCP, Task Sheduler, WIFI,P&P, Crypto..and some.

Still working on a few minor things..a few events in Event Viewer that needs to be dealt with.

All this is handled with batchfiles and regfiles @ T-13 and RunOnceEx, pretty much all my work is in there...taken we all understand that without Nlite I havent even got close to where I am now. Thanx Nuhi! :thumbup

I will not share my batches/reggies yet, it's not perfected yet and just toooo much effort put in them to just "throw" them around...I hope you will understand :}

Eventually they will be shared ofcourse ;)

But hey, ask me anything and I will be glad to help..just not those files...yet.

How did you guys get it so small o.O;

I got it at 600+ MB's, took out as much as possible... What could I have missed? (I still want Office on the same cd, so getting a WORKING WinXP SP2 smaller than 210 MB's would allow Office on the same cd)

Has anyone come up with a way to remove files after

install? Or have tickboxes with description in nLite

so that REM script is built in? Thats how people get

200Mb footprints! But in nLite, these files are not

represented - I know, there are hundreds of files,

its a silly idea.

mine is currently at 109mb, but not finished yet!

This includes IE, SP2, and a few modified Dlls.

All of this was done with nLite and removing unneccesary folders...

now working on removing unneeded images, applications, html documents bla bla...

every kb counts!

if you read in the top of the poll answers you'll see that the q is how much is the size of I386 folder and NOT the size of the full cd

btw you could leave the progs on a second partition or HD and add only the batch file or whatever you use to run them in the cd and change only the paths in the batch file
