HI,

Yup , I've used vLite quite a bit. Does the slipstreaming of service packs and drivers and hotfixes ( if you're lucky ). Also removes components, but haven't been able to get it to install apps., the WPI looked like too much work.

I do what John does - have folders on a separate partition , including one with app. setup files and install the apps. direct from there after reinstalling the o/s.

Vlite does work (largely ) with 7 even as is, so won't be long before Dino gets 7lite going.

I vlited 6801 - removed a lot without any probs. - components that were common To Vista come out fine. Didn't mess with the UAC settings as it's different in 7.

On Vista , I use this to control UAC - no problems for me using it at all . You might like to check it out

Since I have dual HDs, all my installs, drivers, and miscellaneous stuff resides on the other drive, hell, in W7 I even make new libraries for the most used folders (ISOs, Drivers, and Storage). One HD gets dedicated to nothing but OSs and one gets dedicated to storage.

On installs in the field, I keep my 4 GB UFD handy with main apps - antimalware, testing an benchmarking tools and of course, utilities like Magic JellyBean keyfinder. Makes life easier when I can reuse the same keys when blowing a clients machine away and starting from scratch....

I think you are laboring under a misconception - those are *not* by any means the only three folders I use....

It'd be too much for me to go into the entire tree, but here is the gist of it....
