@scarface: I did update both install.wim and boot.wim and resulting image says Windows cannot find drivers for booting. I did find a MSFT guide to copy newer exe and dll to a folder and copy or merge with orginal extract ISO to update boot.wim.
You can use win toolkit or imagex or even Dism++ to keep the image mounted and I used Dism++ to remove most Appx and you can add regtweaks too.
With windows 7, you have to update boot.wim with usb 3 drivers if you use a usb key on a usb 3 port.
To add drivers on windows 7 and windows 10, I just use the original dism. I don't use third party software to remove components.
Note that an updated windows 7 pro x64 will be available by the end of the week.

Note that the link for windows 7 is available for those who are interested.

As I'm sure you're all aware, support for Windows 7 ends on 14/1/2020. I suggest those of you who are still on it to upgrade to 10 ASAP. Diehards out there will use the same argument as with XP - it's mean, lean and works perfectly. I totally agree. Sadly upgrades are a fact of life. Sooner or later, one way or the other, you WILL upgrade. Better to get it over with, the sooner the better.

Incidentally, according to Micro$haft, any computer that can run Windows 7 can run Windows 10. Disclaimer: I haven't tested this, I'm repeating what they're saying.

It's not a "w7-trimmed version" though. If it's a very old PC, maybe you should consider downloading xp.

Use Linux with Q4wine and compatibility set to W7 x86 or x86_64. 
Xp or Win 7 x32 should be good. I think Shnnedo does make dual arch Win 7 using Simplix pack. You can ask him via PM at MDL forums.

Note that a new version of windows 10 will be available tonight. Besides, some new repacks will be released by the end of the month.

Which one 19H1?

Tonight, windows 10 x64 pro Lite RS6 with May 2019 updates is available ("19H1" for Vasudev)


As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5, netfx 4.8, dx9 (and 12) and many programs.
Note: in this edition you'll find many more programs like vlc, firefox, handbrake, silverlight, cdisplay (custom made edition of SF), Sumatra, Flashplayer+schockwave...
It's also activated by default.
Nothing was deleted in winsxs and to obtain such a size, install.wim was converted into esd.
As usual, It also contains 7zip 19.00, winrar 3.71, Treesize free, subtitles edit, Visual C++ Redist...and the latest drivers.
list of the embedded drivers here (to be updated): https://justpaste.it/6golp
Nothing was removed (but a script was run to remove the useless appx and provisioned packages. Hopefully they won't come back since the registry was updated too).
Fx sound enhancer v13.025 was added (full version).
Windows defender is disabled by default but can be re-enabled again via gpedit.msc.
Note that the new feature Windows Defender Tamper protection was deactivated too.

and here is the link for a switch-less win10 activator (encrypted & automatic).
I encrypted it to store it more easily since some antivirus detect it as a virus. Disable your antivirus before executing the exe (it’s not a virus).
A few seconds later,it’s done.

MS Silverlight is deprecated and you can save some MBs removing that thing. I'll download this weekend.

The next version will be smaller indeed. Besides this, I will only leave install.esd and boot.wim in the disk image.

Do you know why kb4505057 is creating a huge folder (400 mb) in windows\servicing\LCU ?
Removing this folder brings this kb back in the list of updates to install.

Its a damn bug during Online servicing or syspreping. I can't upgrade my PC from 18362.30 to 116/145 because of some bugs/blocks. I clean installed thrice thereby losing all game save files even after I saved them manually.
Mine was showing 1.1GB after updating to build 86. 
I did update my Win 10 ISOs for v1803 and v1809 with build 735 and 435 and also updated the whole ISO files with newer setup files and better experience. If you want I can share with you, humbert and others.. The sizes are around 3.4-3.6GB with Dx redist  addon from Wintoolkit, faststone image viewer, regtweaks, no Cortana speeches during OOBE etc... Even Winre.wim is updated to same builds and /Reset Base was used to trim the size of wim files.
You cannot integrate newer updates to boot.wim /index=* w/o corrupting them. On v1903, update only install.wim with newer LCUs.
