I'm trying to figure out how to create some windows 10 image like ghost spectre, but didn't any information on the internet.
Here's a link for the video of the demonstration of the ISO:

I'm trying to figure out what is the privacy optimizations that ghost spectre insert and also the performance mode, and I got a problem to get a windows 10 installation size too, ghost spectre ISO get the final installation size between 4-6GB without remove anything in my view using NTLite.

So if anyone could help me will be really good, I want to make some ISO for a friend and celebration a reach mark on his channel, but need to figure out how to make some awesome ISO like Ghost Spectre does.

Here is my reply on a similar question, let me know if you have further questions.

NTLite removal near maximum, plus the Compact option, add this command to post-setup:
Compact.exe /CompactOS:always
Then Windows size below 2GB.

Will add to 2.1 beta some presets of sorts, like what is safe(r) to remove and what not to easily uncheck all.

nuhi do you think compactos affects performance in a bad or good way? fps drops in games? etc? i think if it was good microsoft would have enable it by default for all devices?

I see here what do you mean with disable all Compatibilities, enable only those you want if any. The compatibility tab I uncheck almost everything except drivers and host machine. But what I'm trying to discover is how to uncheck the unnecessary things, I want make some ISO for gaming and daily use, but keep the windows defender and also windows update stuff. Another question that I'm thinking is that languages when removed, we're allowed to reinstall with no problem in windows?

Thanks for the reply, Nuhi. Some presets will be really awesome from a NTLite Developer, hope to see :) . Probably the team is working harder to improve NTLite.

The CompactOS doesn't affect the performance at all, but what affects that I get answer from Chef-Koch is to see if will cause problems with Adobe products and music/video. In my tests, I'm not get any issues with Photoshop and play videos or music with CompactOS enabled.

Another question is, if you have time of course, what ghost spectre means with
Optimized Pagefile/Services/Scheduled/Search Indexer
Privacy Optimizations & Performante mode!

I try to find which reg tweaks was applied but even trying use a program to see differences between the original reg from windows and ghost spectre didn't specify all the tweaks.

" Compact.exe /CompactOS ", is that like "Compress this drive to save space" option on a drive? ahh, it is.
i thought that there was a performance hit compressing the drive and if i remember correctly you do gain space but not enough to jump for joy. even on a drive or partition less than 60gb its still not worth it in my opinion and thats from personal experience. a crucial 120gb ssd is just over 20gbp. even a tight wad can afford that.

In my opinion files are mostly read only once and those that are needed multiple times like Windows libraries are precached in memory.
Once the file is in RAM cached it doesn't matter how it was written on the disk.
Games/Windows do not reread the needed file constantly from the disk, only once then it's in cache until not enough RAM for other things.
Of course if one has only 2-4GB of RAM then it might matter more if the files are compressed or not, even then if you have more cores won't feel it, etc.


lenkarin, after updating Windows don't forget to run Tools - Remove Reinstalls, as now Cumulative Updates return updated pieces.
Best is to keep the languages you need or will need, but it should be fine. If you see any issues, make sure to report them with the preset demonstrating it.

Also CompactOS is compressing only Windows folder as far as I know, not the entire disk, so don't know how Adobe or other tools would be affected.

Removing components in NTLite will always do more than just disabling those, with the Remove Reinstalls notion.
Also if you ever see the need to do a cleaner Lite repolish or return a component, explore the Host Refresh tool as well.
