    Unused Drivers

    This is primarily a praise post. I just wanted to take the time to express my appreciation for a feature I recently discovered in NTLite in the driver section called, "Exclude unused" which solved a problem that was otherwise going to take a long time to figure out. Also, I wanted to bring...

    Poll: NTLite Usage

    Something I have pondered about is what the statistics look like regarding why people use NTLite, so I made a poll. Please keep in mind this is supposed to be fun/interesting, rather than serious. If it becomes popular enough, NTLite could refer to this poll as a form of feedback to help...

    Windows Install (Black Screen)

    I have been experimenting with the 4 built-in presets (W10 21H2 Home), and something I noticed which I've also seen mentioned on another thread, is that after the Windows Setup process, at some point before you hit the desktop it tends to hang for quite a long time at a black screen, but will...

    Question: NTLite Methodology

    Does NTLite change either its registry tweaks or component removals based on the detected operating system? Let's use a made up example, pretend NTLite has a setting for "Disable Doodad". Now, let's add a layer of confusion by saying the registry path changes based on which OS it is, because...

    Can anyone describe what these settings.xml parameters do?

    There are a few of the settings in the xml file that I'm confused as to what they do exactly or want to make sure <DisableProtections>false</DisableProtections> <ForceDismExe>false</ForceDismExe> (I assume this forces to only use DISM.exe?) <ForceWimLib>false</ForceWimLib> (And this I assume...

    Bug: NTLite Settings File Explorer Pop-Up

    Not sure if this is a bug, or an intended feature that I don't understand: Super easy to replicate, just load the deployed/live Windows into NTLite, then go to Settings > Windows Update > Automatic driver update mode > Never Process it and then it will immediately load File Explorer and make...

    Image size increases for unknown reason

    It might be related to this other post, but there's also a lot of reasons that person's post may be a different problem, so I made my own thread since their issue is post-install size, while mine is about pre-install image size. It's quite possible they are both related though. I never paid...

    NTLite Forum Attachments

    A suggestion regarding attachments on posts. The thumbnail attachments are kind of excessively large I feel, compared to the sizing of everything else in a thread. Perhaps they can be toned down a little? As I'm browsing the forum it seems like most attachments are types of files that have no...

    NTLite Forum Links

    How do I get the forum to stop automatically changing my URLs into MEDIA when I link a Reddit post? I don't want a giant Reddit thread inserted into my posts... I tried manually enclosing links in just basic URL brackets, and also I tried putting them inside parenthesis too which normally stops...

    NTLite Registry Change Notification

    Is there a way to see what registry key NTLite is modifying when we change various settings from within NTLite directly? If not, I do wish there was a way to do this. For example, let's say you remove Windows Defender using NTLite, it would be helpful to have a text pop-up or put the...

    Windows CRLF vs Linux LF

    A shower thought I had today... This is a general non-NTLite question, but also has an NTLite element too: For all you coders out there, when I was working with LPC I had to learn to convert all my code files into Linux LF in my Notepad++ rather than using the default Windows CRLF, or else in...

    NTite versions

    I find myself in a very big doubt talking to other creators of optimized operating systems, they mention that the latest versions of ntlite cause serious compatibility and performance problems, is this true or is it a simple myth? I personally use version v2.1.1.7917
