I'm sure there are some people here who remember nLite or vLite that customized your windows installation files before you installed it. For example, if you know you will never use 90% of the language packs that come with windows, you can remove them before you install, saving install time as well as disk space.
RT Seven Lite is basically nLite or vLite for Windows 7. You can customize your installation in many ways, like installing updates before you install the OS, or adding Wallpapers, or integrating drivers, etc.

If you're gonna install Windows 7, it's worth a shot checking out this program. You can find it here: http://www.rt7lite.com/requirements.html

Screenshots? Nope. I didn't really have time to make any and post them. Embarassed But, the UI looks very nice. Also, if for some reason you don't notice the prerequisites, they are as follows:
– WAIK – Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for windows 7
– .NET Framework 3.5
– Adobe Flash Player ActiveX
– VMware player or VirtualBox or Virtual PC (if you wanna test the OS)

Erm, remember upgrading a vLite'd Windows Vista to SP1?  People that vLite'd it needed to do a fresh install because they took out critical for upgrade components.  MORAL:  BEWARE!  THIS TYPE OF THING IS NOT SUPPORTED BY MICROSOFT! Oh, and isn't Windows 7 fast enough?  I mean, I'm not planning to install it on the Pentium III (at 500MHz and 256MB RAM) I have in the basement!

Oh, the site that was :(

True, Windows 7 is very fast. This is really only for removing useless stuff. Like if you're installing on a rather small hard drive and want to save space. Plus, the automated section is useful. You can integrate your product key and stuff.Laugh

What is wrong with making ur os even faster,I don't see the problem.

If u r on a single computer there is loads of network stuff that can be removed that will speed things up…Natrual language is over 500mb and i will never use it.There is a massive list of stuff i would never use or don't want.MS has to make the os for everyone even businesses so there is plenty a home user would never use

My installation can almost go on a cd(700mb) rather than over 2GB,bit of a difference,and I've been using it for months with no probs at all,and it is noticeably faster.Wink

Still, Locutus is right though. If you are unsure on what to remove, you shouldn't be using the software in the first place.
