Great software!

I recently ran into an issue with my 'nLited' XP installation (prepared around 5 years ago), so returned to the MSFN forum to find that Nuhi is back.

This is great news. I would love to transition over to Windows 7/8, but am so used to my ultra-light XP setup - offering just what I need, and nothing else - that I've remained with the older OS. Fingers crossed Nuhi's return will prompt a streamlining solution for modern Windows that is as easy to use as nLite.

The question remains though, where has he been for five years? There were some rumours that he had been hired by Microsoft...

lol - well said. in fact every OS it supports is now officially dead as far as M$ is concerned. What a waste of time & effort to update nlite.

I think that's still interesting if you want to run XP through a virtual machine (let's say you have a compatibility problem with a particular software) , or a bartPE version of XP.
Xp can still be useful.

the fact that it supports several dead os and is still being maintained and used by people says a lot about microsoft's 'innovative' products in recent years.

No, it really doesn't.

nice, might finally be able to make a windows 7 disc with all the updates already on it to make deployment of some of our computes quicker. There are a few machine models we have that refuse to let us Imagex or ghost them.

i have tried many things and never gotten what we wanted. But there are only 3 device types that require us to do a straight install which usually takes about 3 hours rather than ghost or imagex which take about 12 minutes to deploy.
