Do it using Rt7lite - that's how I did it and it works perfectly.

You basically load either an .iso image or select the already extracted OS files and Rt7lite loads them (Or extracts to a directory and loads them if imaged).

You can remove all the language packs you won't need, you can also remove the various games that come pre-installed.

I also removed various services that I would never use (Parental Control, Projector Support, User Account Control, etc. etc.)

Once you remove everything you can save a lot of space.

If you look here there is a list of all the services etc. that can be removed safely without affecting the normal workings of Windows.

I don't understand how that works though...do you need to reinstall windows after you use R7?

Also, I went to control panel to choose to uninstall language and it only shows English as being installed...
