That's about normal. Make sure you never delete anything manually, you may have to re-install windows. I'll have to look into this more and see if there are any other ways to shrink this folder.

Alright, I think it is just for people updating to SP1 if their install disk didn't have it integrated.

I am thinking the same thing. Oh well. There's gotta be a way to make that folder smaller. I'll do some looking this evening.

I tried making a bootable UEFI USB and I followed all the steps but whenever I tried to boot from it it kept on saying bootmgr.efi is missing or corrupt so I looked into it and it was there and I doubt it was corrupt what am I doing wrong?

What motherboard are you using? I see in your sig rig it is an X58 mobo...you can't install that way.

Is the USB formatted to FAT32?

Yep formatted to FAT32 but what do you mean I can't install that way? My BIOS has an option to only boot UEFI devices/drives (don't remember which).

Hmm, I would just try using a DVD to boot. All you would need to do is select the UEFI: DVD drive option.

Let me test something out though.

No problem, to be honest, I haven't tried to install via USB for GPT, my friend did and gave me the guide, I am going to test it in a few minutes, but if you can just use a DVD to boot off of.
