nLite – Install What You Want With The OS
Ever wished to install the operating system more quickly and without hassle? nLite is a free software that lets you select programs that you don’t want to install with your OS, but which allows the installation kit to have the latest updates, hotfixes, patches and latest service pack.

To apply nLite settings you must have Windows installation CD and the original files .NET Framework 2.0 installed. To begin you need to open nLite and select the location of the original version of OS.
The program will take you to a window with the categories that you can change: Service Pack, Hot-fixes, Add-ons and Update Packs, Drivers, Components, Unattended, Options, Tweaks, Bootable ISO, select only what you want and then modify, (depending on your preference).
After configuration you will be able to create an ISO image which you can then copy to a CD or a DVD.
Why is it so good? With nLite you can remove programs that you will not use (e.g. Internet Games), but you can add add-on installation. nLite will allow installation setup even before the installation itself.
