Vasu -> Why do you prefer 7z over Winrar? I have the cracked version of Winrar 5.70 - it's fast and it works great. I ask because I haven't tested 7z and I wonder what an apples-to-apples comparison looks like. When I have to open a 7z file I use Total Commander's 7z plugin, but Winrar could easily open them too.

@scarface:If you use rar then WinRAR is the best. I switched to 7z format long time and 7zip can open a lot of linux and windows files easily and even a  Linux version can do the same and I prefer cross platform compatibility and performance.
@humbert:
I never used Winrar!

I'm not claiming to be the best.

Both programs are included in the SF windows 10 anyway, I don't know what the fuss is all about.

Note that the development of an home-made windows 10 Pro x64 lite v1903 is currently under way. A new version will be available soon.

I'm already on 1903 insider 18862 and there are few bugs pending, System > Apps crashes settings app and lot of minor UI inconsistencies.

@scarface: Doesn't ESD tax the CPU while compressing/decompressing on low end PCs?
Why don't you use NTLite to remove UWP apps and save 1GB per edition?

Maybe. But do you have a better alternative to have a small version?

I'm already using a script (available below) in powershell. I don't think I could delete more apps without breaking the system. Most are system critical or in place to support other apps or the possibility of other apps being installed

@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.
