    Keep nLite or Do regular install w/ hibernate?

    Well I have been having lots of problems with my nLite install from thing not working and what not also, my usb devices must be plugged into the same port they were installed on..... So my question is should i keep the nlite install and do another nlite or do a full xp install and just use hibernate?

    3rd Option: redo your nLite install but being more careful of what you remove....

    Been there with nLite. Had a good working system which would ocassionally give me problems which I couldn't figure out if it was nLite or not. I've since done a full install and manually stopped services I don't use and I never looked back.

    I have a 12K with a full install of XP using Hibernate and I no longer have these strange issues. The time it takes to get it right with nLite just was not worth it. With the install now all I have to do is turn on a serive if it's needed later on. It's much easier to add to it later with a full install and the boot up time is really not much of a difference to make it worth it IMHO; but what the hell do I know

    I've just reformatted going from Windows XP Pro to TinyXP Rev 4.0 to Windows MCE 2005 and now i'm back to Windows XP Pro. I've switched a whole heaps of services and uninstalled alot of bloatware that comes with windows, and i'm reasonably satisfied with it's performance and at least it's easier to debug problems.

    I no longer have any hibernate and resume issues. I use this function many times a day and it has worked without any problems. I had many issues when using nLite and the other pieces which supposedly are designed to speed things up.

    I like Howie am using XP Pro and just adjusted services removed the bloat manually. I have no problems with running anything I want now.
