Here's my situation:
I bought a 1GB IDE Flash module to install my OS on for my soon-to-be upgraded CarPC. I made an nLite version of windows and I have tried to install it on the drive but it says it requires 1.2GB of space for the system.
My first question: This size doesn't seem right--I reduced its size quite a bit, so I am assuming that this is a fixed regulation put in by windows so as to always come up when installing windows, which they assume to be the full version of XP. Am I correct in thinking this? Or is this the actual size of my modified system?
The other question I have: Is there a way to install the OS on this drive without going through the typical bluescreen windows setup, or can I install it on my other PC that has some free IDE ports through the OS on that computer? I'm unsure if it makes it computer-specific when installing the OS, or if I can install it on one PC and move it to another.
Thanks for any help!

If the above doesn't work, hookup a full size hard drive, install the OS. Then ghost it onto CDs and then back onto the CF.
But getting a pre-made smaller OS (TinyXP/etc) is easier.
