[project] NanoXP



Category: .script
File Version: 1.0.0
File License: GNU Public Licence

Description:
NanoXP is a free project meant to create bootable windows based builds sized around 14Mb.
It is a good way to demonstrate some size compression/reduction methods that can
be used in windows NT based OS.

Some of the methods used:
  • Selective file criteria when including files and drivers
  • Using CAB'ed files that are supported by the boot process
  • UPX on files that don't support the makecab method
  • Carefull removal of system hives and adapting txtsetup.sif
  • Using freedos-32 dll smaller files that can replace the original ms versions
These scripts have been tested using a Windows XP SP2 as source - win2003 is causing problems because of winsrv wich can be solved later if anyone wishes to use it as source.

This build supports NTFS drives, and allows to add further customizations like changing the screen resolution, keyboard language and drivers.

At the moment only CMD.EXE is tested and supported, other win32 command line programs should work properly, all applications that depend on graphical GUI components won't be compatible with freedos-32 dll's (they remove all GUI functions), you'll need to disable this script to get them working (adding 6Mb to build size), some extra work adding necessary file dependencies might be required.


This project is now replaced by picoXP - which can be downloaded from wb's download center.

Use the BBlean for Shell, BBlean have 297Kbs and 10 Styles for desktop, run in 98, 2000, XP, 2003
for explorer use 2xExplorer v1.4.1.12 have 584Kbs and rum in all Windows.

Carlos,
are BBlean and 2xExplorer command line apps?

If not, you might want to re-read attentively Nuno's post.

(and maybe change your suggestion)
