    Could you share the registry tweaks you used?
    why certainly

    cut-paste and edit whichever ones you want for your setup.

    anything else you'd be interested in I can provide as well. Besides the registry tweaks below, I also made use of the utility eXPerience packages with TinyXP to disable services. I hadn't checked how many I have running though. Disabling the welcome screens and guiboot didn't really reduce boot time I don't think...just made it look less like Windows and more like something that came with the car

    Code:

    I'm not sure what every one of those tweaks do, I'll have to spend some time figuring that out and bug you next weekend at the gathering.

    No problem I still plan on being there. Was bringing a friend but he got too old for his own good and messed up his back so he chickened out.

    If you dig around on http://forum.retestrak.nl/index.php forums (which is I believe the "home" of tinyXP) there are TONS of reg edits on there for everything from XP to Server2003 to Vista and Server2008. I joined there just to dig around and find edits that I haven't found elsewhere.

    It is the home of TinyXP, and is where eXPerience spends his time.

    He has his own configuration files posted (which I have posted on this forum as well). His reg tweaks can get a standard XP install, down under 55megs of used ram alone.

    If you are able to get TinyXP, you can get a usb install version as well...if your PC supports booting from USB~

    Yeah, quit using TinyXP. Just install a regular XP version (or whatever version you can get on the drive), then use the same author's (eXPerience) configuration files (a file you can double click to automatically import all the reg tweaks he uses). The install size will be different, but the ram usage will pretty much be the same. I even posted those configuration files on the forum.

    You should be able to get around 50-55mb of usage with a fresh install of XP, and one of his higher tweaks (hardcore/maniac).
