Aye disabling services is easy, im talking about uber stripping, for example my Windows 7 was under a gig, fully functional for what i require, installed in under 4 minutes and took under 5GB once installed. I have my Windows 8 down to 2.4GB, with updates, but want it smaller, shouldn't be much more that 7 really, but most of the tools i used on 7 wont work on 8.

In other news 10,000+ post! wow =)

Yeah I haven't tried stripping 8 (only used the beta) but this might even work on it. Until them, might have to wait for the right software to strip it.

Normal everyday OS use, i do the stripping and modification for 2 reasons, i'm from the floppy disc era, where software has to be written with space in mind, the size of modern media has made things like windows bloated, legacy obviously doesn't help. Secondly i don't want half the crap in windows, ease of access stuff, supplied themes, in fact many of the features, but i do want other things like .net 3.5 and every update available slip streamed in, so i can install Windows fast, requiring no updates or repeated rebooting once installed and needing very little space. Besides, i simply enjoy the whole process of learning, tinkering and making something work the way i want it, but appreciate such things are not for everyone.

I can get where you are coming from. I like to do this stuff for fun most of the time, I do a little benchmarking as well so this helps with that. Can I give you access to my DropBox folder and get the OS from you when it's done? My time seems limited anymore and I would love to try a stripped W8.
If so, shoot me a PM with your Email.

I'm afraid from a legal stand point i wont be able to do this. As you say you are running the beta and my modified version is of the retail version which currently has my key written into the autounatend file. However, i can assist you in modifying the beta or a retail copy to the same point i have mine. If you wish to do this i shall try an put together a quick step-by-step guide for you.

No, that's okay, I can probably do it, didn't know you put your key into it. Let us know how yours turns out though. thumb.gif

The key is easy enough to remove but i still don't like the thought of sending said files, from a legal stand point you understand. If and when you come to do it there are somethings you should really know, to save you time as its taken me many many hours to figure out. Some updates can not be slip streamed until other updates have first been applied. So you have to add a load of updates, commit the image then add the others and re-commit. If you wish to know which let me know at the time as there will like be other updates with other issues by that time.

I love these tools. I remember back in 2008 I learned about nLite and I thought it was the coolest thang ever,
