Microsoft Windows Vista installs many components which may not be needed for common users and these features can slow down the performance of Vista. vLite is a tool for customizing the Windows Vista installation before actually installing it. This tool doesn’t use any kind of hacking, all files and registry entries are protected as they would be if you install the unedited version only with the changes you select.
Main features are:
- Hotfix, language pack and driver integration
- Component removal
- Unattended setup
- Split/merge Vista installation CDs
- Create ISO and burn bootable CD/DVD
It configures the installation directly before the installation, meaning you’ll have to remake the ISO and reinstall it. This method is much cleaner, not to mention easier and more logical than doing it after installation on every reinstall.
