I ordered my new 30gb vertex solid state drive from newegg today and am very happy with the increase in boot time. I was wondering how to get rid of some unnecessary programs and apps from the install to give me a little extra space. Now i have 7gb free of the 30? I remember reading an article somewhere of how to do a bare minimum install of windows 7 but I can't seem to find it anymore. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium upgrade.

Thanks for the help!

what are you installing windows 7 with? a recovery disk like what you get with a brand name computer like HP or dell or just a copy of windows 7?

if it is just a copy of windows 7 you could use a program called nlite where it will allow you to make a copy of the windows 7 CD and will allow you to remove and add whatever you want to the install.


here is a link to the website. and the program is free to use

I am installing from an OEM disc that I ordered from Newegg. I am doing a fresh install not actually upgrading from vista.

If you also have a hard drive then you can move the page file to the hard drive by following these steps:

Start -> right-click "Computer" -> Properties

Click "Advanced System Settings"

Click the "Advanced" tab

In the "Performance' section, click the "Settings..." button

Click the "Advanced" tab

In the "Virtual Memory" section, click the "Change..." button

Click on the hard drive and click "Custom Size" and enter the sizes or click "System managed size", then CLICK THE "SET" button

Click on the boot drive, click the "No paging file" radiobutton, then CLICK THE "SET" button.

Click the "OK" buttons to close all the dialogue boxes.


You can also adjust the amount of space reserved for system restore points. See this article: http://www.tomsguide.com/us/windows-vista-solutions,rev...
