Have any of you heard of a "Mini-XP" installation?
I have been given a disc by a mate which apparently has a stripped out version of XP ready for an unattended instal.
This is what the included text file says about it
Windows XP Pro SP2 Unattended
Thank you for your interest in this stripped out 125Mb
Edition of XP. I clocked mine in Task Manager using
only 49Mb of RAM. Windows XP usually uses 300Mb of
RAM at the best of times. This "Mini-XP" takes up
only 500Mb total space on your system's hard drive.
By using only 50Mb of RAM, this allows
your PC to run fast, I mean VERY fast!
All important hardware drivers and other essentials
have been kept in this release - no more problems
with those stupid Alcatel stingray modems. You have
joystick support, printer support, ISDN, and other
bare essentials. This Windows XP Edition CAN have
MS Office installed, it is also supported! You still
have your calculator, Wordpad and of course, MS Paint.
GONE is that nasty Internet Explorer! It does not
exist in this Edition. You will have to install
Firefox or Opera or any other browser to access
the internet. ALSO GONE is Windows Media Player.
You will have to grab some kind of player from
somewhere if you want to play stuff. GONE also
are all Windows noises like startup and shutdown
noises, but audio does work. However, there is
no support for scanners in this Edition.
This XP Pro SP2 Unattended is tiny @ just 125Mb!
