Creating a minimal XP install

http://mason.gmu.edu/~sfiorito/eXPinstall.htm <– this is a great page for instructions on installing XP onto compact flash.

The above page has disappeared from the face of the internets.  Try http://www.tvharmony.com/blog/archives/2004/12/booting_windows_1.html instead.

http://blogs.msdn.com/embedded/archive/2005/03/20/399535.aspx <– this page has some interesting comments about this too.

http://www.litepc.com/ is a commercial product that helps strip down an XP install to 350MB

There is an excellent (albiet a little old) forum post here that describes how to slim down the install cd.

To remove components already installed, see the Microsoft article here.

    First link – to “great for installing XP on CF” (What I’m trying, and searched for) is broken.
