Bare Minimum XP with nLite...Help - 10-09-2009, 11:54 PM
Hi everyone, I recently bought a dell mini 9 which came with ubuntu, that I thought would be ok, but I really didnt get on with, especially when it came to space! I did alot of reading on here, and made a few nLited versions of an OEM windows xp home slipstreamed with sp3 and tweaked to remove excess baggage. But I think I can get even more done.
The idea is, rather than chose what to delete in nLite, I just need some expert advice on what NOT to delete so that everything can run smoothly. I know its each to their own taste, but I will be clear, and this thread might help others in the future because I'm talking absolute bare minimum. I can always uncheck anything I might want to keep at the end.
Some questions also:
If there is not that much difference in size of a basic WMP and the newest one, I would prefer to install that. i.e. can I completely delete all WMP files from install and then still download and run the newest version from windows successfully?
If I delete the images for home screen it will display an x. But can I still create my own later? If not I would also like to keep this?
Do I really need all of this wireless utility rubbish, or is it all useless once I download the Dell drivers, eg broadcom wireless utility?
If your bothered, maybe take a look at my question about drivers here.
