Hello dear MDL members, I'm planning to customize and capture a windows image (wim file) of WIN7 rtm enterprise N edition. Also I was able to download a WIN7 rtm enterprise E edition (both are x64). I hope to capture the N edition image after stripping out IE8 (by editing the registry and deleting the necessary folders) or try to delete wmp and other media stuff the same way on the N version. For the comparison of the two images I was thinking to set up 2 virtual machines. So my question is: by only deleting the necessary folders and editing the registry of the mounted wim could this experiment work or it should be much more tedious? Reason for the above is just natural curiosity and that I hate the fact that IE folder and who knows what does still exist after I give it an uncheck in Windows Components. I would have also given a try to strip out the gadget service as running gadgets can allow remote code execution but there were no editions leaked excluding this service.
