    Hello guys, i have this untouched ISO of windows 7 SP1, but the problem is the size is 4.8g~ which means it would not fit in a single DVD. It is an AIO version. (includes x86 & x64 version of all editions).

    So the question is, is there any way or tool for me to make the ISO smaller by getting rid of unnecessary version of windows (ie : Windows 7 starter & basic) in order to reduce the size of the ISO image? :confused:

    Thank you in advance ;)

    You have to mount the ISO and retrieve install.wim from the Sources folder

    Now just click the Intermediate tab and select WIM Manager. From there you can delete the selected editions and you just have to click the rebuild button on the bottom to compress your install.wim to the max and to commit your final changes.

    Also, be sure to delete ei.cfg if it is in the Sources folder. This causes only select editions to appear sometimes.
