Lite version of Windows 7 x64?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm looking to install Windows 7 on a new rig I'm working on. I'm looking for a lite Windows 7 x64. Any ideas? If there aren't any I'm willing to settle for a lite version of Windows XP, but x64 is my main concerns because I have 4GB of RAM that I want to utilize.

You're looking for vLite.

http://www.vlite.net/download.html

You can use this to slim down 7.

EDIT:

If you want to use it and don't want to DL the huge file it requires, download & install 1.1.1 first. Then 1.2 overtop of it.

http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/941/vLite_1.1.1.html
^1.1.1

1.2 link is still at the top.

It works 100% with 7.

EDIT: I've managed to get my 7 x64 install down to 7.5GB with this.
