The advantages of simplifying system installation files are obvious: 1) greatly shortens the installation time of OS; 2) saves a lot of disk space occupied by system partition; 3) makes the system run faster; 4) there is no need to manually remove unwanted/unused files one by one after installing the system (otherwise, that’s not only extremely inefficient, but also error-prone, and the these files can not be removed completely. So it’s better not to install them at all). Besides, integrating drivers, patches, software and other resources into the system installation package can greatly reduce the time and effort spent on driver update, patch update, software installation and other aspects for a newly installed system.

So would you like to make a Windows OS installation ISO Image/CD/DVD/USB that removes all the cumbersome system components and outdated built-in software, integrates the latest hardware drivers, the latest system patches and various needed software, and is able to automatically complete the installation? If that’s the case, then you need an edge tool like NTLite! It is the successor of nLite (for Windows XP only), which is a very famous, cutting-edge Windows deployment tool for making the bootable and unattended Windows installation ISO, developed by Nlitesoft from Croatia.

As a very powerful system integration and simplification edge tool, NTLite comes with two major functions: 1) Easily and perfectly removes the undesired or unnecessary inbuilt system components of Windows ISO (such as languages, screensavers, MS Paint, drivers, services, Internet Explorer and .NET Framework, system APP, Windows Edge, Windows Defender, etc.); 2) Integrates drivers, hotfixes/updates, registry, DirectX, Microsoft .Net Framework, Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages, desktop themes, tweaks, patches, applications and more into the Windows installation image on demand.

In addition, NTLite also allows user to optimize Windows configuration, adjust system registry, change system service setting, deploy unattended Windows installation, create bootable ISO disc images for burning onto CD/DVD/USB to use, and so on. Moreover, in addition to being able to simplify and integrate Windows installers, NTLite also supports doing the same things to an already installed Windows system.

Many so-called enhanced (or even activated) Windows installation images can be found on the Internet, but they are not very technical at all. Because with an edge tool like NTLite in hand, anyone will be able to customize and distribute his own Windows installers. And you will find the entire implementation process is so quickly and easily! BTW, the predecessor of AppNee (G.N.R.S.U) had shared nLite as early as in 2009. Unfortunately, we haven’t prepared to share it again at AppNee until today. In these intervening years, all its related resources have been sleeping on my hard drive for 10 years!
