    Cool, thanks. I will try to make a correlation between these and what I can remove in nLite.

    It also depends what level of functionality you are going for. You have to leave some things running for various accessories to work.

    Definitely. Thats why a component breakdown by functionality would be nice. Like, you need XYZ for Bluetooth, XYZ for audio, XYZ for Wifi. I know that is a lot to ask though and its mostly experimentation. When I get mine working I will report back on my setup. It is gonna be a while though.

    The site I posted does a listing of what services are tied to what functions. That was why I posted it. It is a highly regarded site in the pc-gamer world, but it is a good resource.

    (I've been a sys-admin for 11 years, just now getting to first car-pc project).

    Install the XP power toys is the easiest way to setup autologin. Otherwise you have to edit the registry manually.

    Even easier way is to see if you can open a run box and run "control userpasswords2" without the quotes. Once that comes up, uncheck the box that says something about requiring a username/password to be typed in. It'll ask for a username/password to auto login with. Then you don't even have to install powertoys.
