Unattended Secret: Reducing Size Of Source


Recommended Posts

That disables simple file sharing and doesn't make a dllcache folder

"press a key for setup"

If you want that message copy bootfix.bin into your VOL1 or boot folder. If you cannot see the ~LS and ~BT folders, make sure you can see hidden files and folders. It doesn't matter where systemfileprotection is, because it's it's own seperate catagory.

You need to browse to the directory of the cd. If say, you have your cd copied to a folder called XP on your C:\. Start - Run - then type "command" without the quotes to open command prompt. From there you would type:

cd XP

cd (change directory) XP changes to the XP folder in your C:\. Then, to get to i386 type

cd i386

then from there type winnt32.exe /noreboot.

Basically in the command prompt you have to navigate to where your winnt32.exe file is for the OS your're trying to shrink.

No, it won't. When setup comes up. You want to do choose the clean install option. It will copy files to your computer but will NOT overwrite anything already on there. Once it's done, it should just close on it's own if I remember correctly. Afterwards, you should have some weird folders in your C:\. Just follow the starting post of this thread to do the rest.
