    nliteos.com doesn't work too.
    I hope it's not permanently.

    May be it's for good?... Ppl should learn and use WAIK or OPK to configure custom Win7 ISO's. vLited Vista too often had problems with SP installation for example.

    However, with this opinion, i always liked nlite, lol.

    It's a good tool but has it's limitations, hate to see it go. Not everyone needs all of the options available in the WAIK nor do they desire to learn it. I do wish it was easier for people to modify their own images, maybe then people wouldn't get taken by buying bogus, bloated and spyware infested versions from online auction sites.

    I used VLITE about an hour ago to make a stripped down install for my kids, removing the language packs, the speech support and a bunch of junk they don't need and turning off UAC, superfetch, windows firewall before hand makes my life easier, I don't need WAIK to do that.

    And the final image is about 1.4 gb and fits on my old pen drive.
