    Hello. I read on some other topic on using nLITE to build a stripped down version of the XP CD. Mark all the options you dont want, create the cd and reinstall windows from there. Its FREE.

    Website: http://nuhi.msfn.org/

    I've used the "Lite" preset which strips all unncessary services and it works greate. NOTE: MediaPortal will require the "TASK SCHEDULER" service to be installed. So if you use the "Lite" preset, you need to "uncheck" (meaning do not remove) it.

    Happy stripping :D

    Ive made some custom automated installs with it, It works great.

    And windows is alot faster after stripping everything out you dont need :)

    Sounds interesting. I have already installed XP on my HTPC. Is there any way to exchange XP versions without loosing all data?

    ...or can I reinstall nLite XP on top of the old installation?

    Update: I have used XPlite to successfully remove XP components in an existing installation. It works great and creates a system restore point... but it's not free.
