@scarface: Doesn't ESD tax the CPU while compressing/decompressing on low end PCs?
Maybe. But do you have a better alternative to have a small version?
Why don't you use NTLite to remove UWP apps and save 1GB per edition?
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

Code: [Select]
Import-Module AppX
Import-Module Dism

Tonight, windows 10 x64 pro Lite RS6 with April updates is available.


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 much 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 3.70, 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.

@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.

Tonight, windows 7 x64 Professional SP1 Tunisia edition with the latest updates is available.


Some users of the forum like Vasudev were eagerly waiting for it.
As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5 and netfx 4.7.2, dx9 (and 11) and many programs.
It was updated with the April  2019 updates, 7zip 19.00, winrar 3.70 full, Visual C++ Redist...
Many drivers were updated.
Unlike previous versions, nothing was removed: it's fully updatable. Note that I'm planning to discontinue support for this version.
The useless recovery file winre.wim and a few obsolete drivers (printers, mdm, wia) were deleted.
Fx sound enhancer was added (full version).
Note that harkaz's rebase is available in %systemdrive% if you want to use it (at a time it wasn't free but harkaz may still find a donation useful, I advise you to contact him).

4.34Gb

If you have activation problems: https://mega.nz/#!PXZHTIzB!QUp86oPcQJkj4dBgctKa7aQB9KjlAHpjUblN6yUWr2E



Note that you can still download xp here (an updated, lite version of Maher’s edition which includes every update):
kb4012598 and wmp11 with its updates have been integrated. What’s more, some visual tweaks were applied as you can see on the screenshot below.
Finally, a few unneeded elements were removed (the list is available in the nlite log in the iso file).
Link: https://mega.nz/#!8NUmVCaQ!PzrY8hsTD5XRV8OoNaczvqxIqr_eOOxhHN8_obmbeqM




And Here is office 2007 with most updates, till August 2018 (it’s a switch-less installer).
https://mega.nz/#!zmpCHSzI!NRfwpk_B8zIa515gPIpKQarA3Ry50zuCAk_OcHjiqyc

And here is the MUI pack for office 2007. it includes many languages (notably French, German, italian, Japan, Russian, Arabic). With this pack you can change the user interface language of office 2007 by using the “Microsoft Office 2007 Language Settings”. It's practically impossible to find it today.

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.
