I never said stripping the OS install increased the installation size...

What I was saying is that using a fresh OS install and applying the SSD tweaks made the install size plenty small.

This isn't a SSD tweaking guide....


I did link BlackViper's guide for those who are looking to make a 'safer' stripped OS for daily use. There you can look up services and what they do and make your own educated decision as to what services you would like to remove or keep.

So I could just do this, install all the benches I need to have, along with CPUz, GPUz, RealTemp, and other OC essentials, and I'd be set?

Also, is there a better OS for benching? I heard XP was really good, but I think I heard that back before 7 was released.

And why did you want to keep aero?

Thanks for the guide smile.gif +r... nvm

Depends which benchmark you want to run tbh.

Need aero for certain things like pcmark, and it looks nice.

Sometimes stripping the default theme causes extra work on the OS, as it always sends the command for the default theme first and then another command for classic or whatever, if the default isn't available.

Is that why everyone uses the olive theme in XP?

I'm not sure that olive is considered 'default', but it does seem to like SuperPi. The XP and W7 stripped discs I tried without themes where slower in most benchies. Even if you like benching with classic, I've found it's good to leave themes install and just disable them later.

Leaving a functioning areo was the most difficult part of making this guide. It wasn't has simple as leaving themes installed.

At the first step, when you select Browse>Select a .ISO file, what am I looking for here? It says I'm looking for windows 7 setup files, but I have no idea where to find those. I blundered around for 30 minutes before giving up and posting...

You need to save your Windows image as an ISO on your hard drive. Then select the ISO.
