    Ya, XPe is basically the entire OS in read only memory, so there is not really a way to screw it up by just turning it off.

    Well the XPe OSes are password protected, so I have to use a nLite version of XP. I was going to set it up for EWF and HORM, but not sure if that is 100% doe doe proof. Also I took a look at the MoBo, and it has the pins for a reset button. So I can add it if id like.

    Darn it. I was going to mention looking for pins on the motherboard. But I see you're on top of things

    And in either case, if XPe needs password every time, the reset is nice, but I agree you need to look into the alternate OS.

    Yea, but I am still most likely only use the power buttons. It seems that it acts as a reset also. XPe are administrator password protected. Also, they have an out dated browser IE6. So i need to upgrade them. I have an nLite disk, Im just not sure if it will fit on a 4GB card.

    Well, apparently Tiny7 takes about 2.5GB footprint. But really needs a good amount of RAM.

    TinyXP can be set up anywhere from 250MB to 1GB. Can run decent in 512MB.

    You should be able to get a Windows OS in that 4GB. You will have to account for the swap file.

    Yea, with nLite I think its about 700mb. I of course have to add Centrafuse, which is huge. I have read that it is easy to setup EWF and HORM, so that will help with wearing of CF cards. I also know that I have to disable Page Files and System Restore. What other actions should I take to have less writing to the CF card?

    PS: I got the new 4GB CF cards in yesterday. I also got all the AC bricks for the thin clients. They are super small. I bought the 12V 3a that was meant to power a Asus EEE. Its about the size of a stick of gum, but a little thicker. Now issue was that it did not fit the thin clients plug port. So I cut off any excessive cord and wired to the DC-DC power supply directly. The power brick is so small that it is on the in the case also, since the case has plenty of room. Today I hope to setup one unit with all the software it needs and then EWF and HORM. What do I have to do though, when done with that unit, to clone its CF card so that I can save a copy, then copy that onto the other 5?

    If you have enough ram, create a ramdisk for things like temp and temporary internet files if you'll be using IE. If you're running EWF, forget about the ramdisk. EWF basically writes all disk changes to ram anyway. It takes it one step further by giving you the option to commit to disk if you wanted. It'll also let you create space on a different CF to keep track of disk changes if you desired, if I recall correctly.

    With nLite I've been able to get my XP installs down to around 230mb not including swap. I usually don't run a swap/paging file since I usually load up my CarPCs with 2gb ram or more.

    If you're going to be formatted to NTFS for the CF, look into turning off atime or modified time. I forget what windows calls it. EWF is a great idea also. Once you have everything set up correctly, image the CF so it's easy to replace. It's not a matter of if, more when. The more space you use up the less space you'll have to write and rewrite, killing it a ton faster. Try to keep your install as slim as possible to extend the life of your CF. Design it with the plan of replacing CF cards, not hoping you do it right so you don't have to.

    I remember Ive done EWF in the past, I just have to brush up on it. Now as far as RAM, I have 512mb of RAM. Only thing is that if you use a CF card, doesnt it have to be FAT32?

    Well yesterday I tried to install Windows XP nLite. It would get to the setup screen, but when it would get to the area where it installed the Kernal, it would freeze. Am I missing a step? Maybe I have to do a step that I am missing?
