Guide: Stripping W7 install disc for benching. - Page 2

post #11 of 118
Pizzaman, besides benching, can this OS still be used to game/browse/watch media etc? Just curious as I would like to strip mine down to yours when I grab a SSD, TIA.

This is good, and i shall be playing with the program soon!

But i've got most of those feature turned off in windows anyway, through the Programs and features section of control panel.

Thinking the same thing.

Not that I need to with the size of my SSD and my 6gb ram, but ever since I started using Linux a few months ago I really like having minimal things installed.

Yes you can.

If you guys want, I can make a thread on what things to remove/keep for everyday usage. I also have a few links for integrating Windows updates since the OP didn't specify that.

Would be great!

Basically want to do a fresh install, I assume I have to make my windows 7 CD into a backed up ISO.

I'll wait for your thread, don't want to bother the benchers thread.
This might help my folding, thats why I am also interested also hate bloated OS since I have used linux.

The BlackViper settings removed Aero, which I wanted to leave in.

You'll want to keep the networking stuff. This guide completely removes most the networking stuff.

Question - The "Services" section in the "Remove Features" gets rid of the service altogether as opposed to just disabling it, right?

Hey guys. Question. Will games and such still work? I primarily use my PC for gaming, surfing OCN and listening to music. I don't need all the other crap. With the stripped down version, will the core things I use work?
