My install without SP1 is 18GB. I believe SP1 adds 1-2GB (this is with Hibernate (2GB) and system restore off as well).

On my new install, it was around 9GB, but that was using VLite

vista installs like every driver for every item... ever.

ok that's not true lol, but it does have most major components preinstalled.

For some, that is true. If you take a look at the printer section, it installs printer drivers for every company.

And this isn't Vista Ultimate 64 SP1, that has around 1GB in printer drivers I believe.

Are you sure it was a clean install, because vista backs up the older installs to C:/Windows.old/
Was the drive fully formatted before the install?

(its safe to just delete that folder if you have all your old data backed up BTW)
