vLite 1.1

Posted on Wednesday, January 23 2008 @ 13:46:05 CET by

vLite is a tool for customizing the Windows Vista installation before actually installing it.

  • new: Boot.wim cleanup (automatic with removed components)
  • new: Third Apply method - Rebuild All
  • new: Hide individual components (right-click menu)
  • new: Power button tweaks
  • new: 'Network Explorer'
  • new: 'Firewire (1394)'
  • new: 'Storage Controllers'
  • fix: UAC tweak
  • fix: UAC removal (Network Center, Users panel)
  • fix: Natural Language breaking Search
The image will be smaller again, this time because of the boot.wim cleanups.

Also be careful with the Storage Controller removals, if you remove the driver for your particular hard disk controller it will not be able to see the drives on the bootup. But as a precaution, or even a better alternative, put a new hard disk controller driver in the subfolder inside the folder from which the ISO will be made and then you can even remove all the drivers and provide it with that folder once it asks for a driver on first boot.

You can also use an USB flash for that just in case it doesn't see the DVD drive from which it booted from, if such thing is even possible any more, saw it in the early VMWare versions. I noticed that my ICH9R controller is loaded even if I remove the Intel driver, probably because my SATA is set in BIOS to IDE mode. Driver integration still does not support the textmode drivers, the ones like these hard disk controllers for bootup. Waited to remove them first, well since that happened next thing in todo is textmode driver integration, at least folder copy to the ISO for manual load if the full integration is not possible without the MS tools.
