Vista on CD instead of DVD

If you have a copy of the corrosponding version of ximage you could break the WIM image into cd parts and then burn to CD, not sure what else would be needed in this scenerio since i don't have access to the new ximage to test with yet, but that is really the only choice, try burning on a different computer and with a DVD from a different spindle

what silverhaze was looking to do was split up the DVD, which can be done since the WIM the vista comes on supports that functionality with Ximage, just not possible since MS didn't release the corrisponding ximage tool with 5270

The fact that Vista is going to be released on DVD should sound ominous cause that probably means there is going to be a lot of bloat and nLite for Vista if it does come out will be quite busy getting rid of bloatware!

In experienced users call software features "bloat", experienced users call them "features."

You're going to get WinCal, Defender, IE 7, WMP 11, Media Center, etc, etc. Of course it is going to be a bigger install.

Most complete Linux distributions span several CDs and OS X is on DVDs now.

Great point raskren. It is just that a standard professional XP cd install is what 600 mb? That is quite a jump from 600 mb to 2 gigs! Surely WindCal, Defender, IE7, WMP11, etc etc are not going to result in that big of an install!!! Unless the server functionality and all that enterprise stuff is going to be included in it as well!

Suryad,

the DVD that you get has Vista, vista standard or lite (can't remeber the name), the tablet edition vista and longhorn server all on one DVD. that all come in at 2 gig for 4 different OS's. if you look at it that way 4 x 600 mb (xp size os) that should be 2.4 gig. so actually they have cut 400 meg out already AND have added many new features.
