Great guide. Thanks very much.

I followed the guide and ended up installing Win 7 ultimate on my 16GB SSD, with all the software I need plus a couple of GB of maps and still have about 4GB spare.

Good stuff.

Thanks for the guide. Following the guide, my Windows 7 install was about 3.5 GB.

However when i try to turn windows features on and off (e.g. uninstall spider spolitaire), I get the following error:

"An error has occurred. Not all of the features were successfully changed"

I've tried googling for a solution but it seems there is no concrete solution. Has anyone else experienced this?
