Another option may be to use 7Customizer to create a smaller install.

Turn off System Restore, turn off hybernate (powercfg -h off), turn off/uninstall windows features that you dont use.

vlite before you install. Check netbook forums for the best tips. I was able to get the RC version of win7 down to 3.5GB and dual boot it with Linux on a 16GB SSD. These two forums will help you get your win7 as small as possible:
