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.

Maybe some of you remember harkaz. This user was very polite and particularly talented.
In this message you can find rebase for windows 7 x64, if you need it: http://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=3350.msg34357#msg34357
Note that based on my experience, if the "-extreme" switch is used, it can remove 3 Gb from the winsxs folder, but then it is breaking the ability to install updates.

Note that the script to remove provisioned apps for the windows 10 lite edition is available in the message about windows 10.

@scarface is this the last W7 ISO with latest updates?
Yes.
Very sad to hear that.
Well, no, actually I had read "the latest w7 iso". It's very hot, and I don't read the articles of the forum carefully.
Haha.... You're same as me.... How Hot? 40-45C??

No, 35°C
I think that the record in France was beaten today with 44°C in Carpentras.

Here, 10 years ago, avg ambient temps were below 30C. Now, its 40C plus!

@scarface: Yesterday I did a custom Win 7 SP1 and install.esd size is 2.2GB and 3.3GB in standard wim container. I updated winre.wim file to latest updates along with boot.wim files.

3.3 Gb? You must have made a serious clean sweep.
2.2 GB? I read several times that the esd conversion was only possible with windows 10. Is it working? Is there a new boot.wim to handle this? This is pretty interesting if I want to make a smaller windows 7 release.

Yeah I also saved custom boot.wim fully integrated as per Harkaz guide. Mind you, I forgot the VM part so if I followed that the ESD would have been much smaller. My ISO has updated winre.wim trimmed to 320MB using Harkaz cleanup guide(WinSxS). Rebasing compressed the test OS image to 16GB as opposed to 20GB. I used Simplix to update install.wim. Use NTLite for ESD compression or Gimagex for Xpress64k with better compression with slow speed.
