    Ok, I have this situation here.

    I've made a custom install.wim file for a set of systems that I'd like to put onto a DVD-R disc, but the trouble comes about when the size of this install.wim tips the total size of the DVD to be 180MB bigger than the maximum size a DVD-R can hold.

    I am hoping that perhaps some of the other files can be deleted. Afterall the setup program can't possibly be THAT big. Does anyone know what are the files that I can remove to strip the setup disk down to its bare minimum?
