hi nice tut i dont know if you realize this or not but when you make your own install like this you will not be able to install sevice packs when there released as i got caught out doing the same thing with vista disk and there was a problem using the disk to try and repair any problems as well

cheers brad

Yeah that is an issue...but that is something you pay for with something like this...at least you can slipstream a service pack with vLite into another installation....but a clean install will be necessary

If you check out the components list I have posted, that is the only "safe" stuff to remove right now...vLite just wasn't designed for 7 (despite all the similarities between it and 7) and removing somethings will kill an installation (like WLan 0_o)...Its a game of trial and error; Just continue to test and when you find one that works to your specs...than you will run a 7 Installation like no other

problem

problem with V-Lite on Windows 7 RTM

after DL V-Lite 1.2 i tried to install and got the message that V-Lite requires a WIM filter as a dependency. after clicking on OK to goto MS to download it i find that its a Windows Vista Service pack - see quote below.

"The Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK) is designed to help corporate IT professionals customize and deploy the Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 family of operation systems" and its 1.3gb in Size!!

have you tested this tutorial on a system running JUST windows 7 RTM?

Surely there must be a way around this --- or am i missing something?
