I can't imagine much, but I'd use the Dell disk if possible.

Someone else here mentioned having trouble with certain software after removing the wrong components when doing an nLited install, if that's a concern I'd recommend leaving everything except the languages and keyboards, that will save you some space, still allow you to do an unnatended installation, but not run into any compatability problems in the future.

I thought I read some where on here that the bloat ware was on the driver disk. If thats the case you can load all of the drivers from the Dell driver site for the mini and then just load the hacked blue tooth driver found on this site. Someone quote me if I'm wrong.

910,Black, Win 7 RC1,64gb Runcore SSD, 2gb Ram, 32gb SDHC Cls 4,B-tooth,1.3Wb Cam, Sprint Touch Pro on Verizon Modem
XPS M1330, T9300, 4gb DDR, 128gb SSD, 128mb Nvidia, LCD Screen, BT, Wireless-N, Soundblaster (320gb HDD w/ Windows 7)
