well, I have made some space and time comparison tests between filedisk full vhd and and filedisk winntsetup-made wimboot vhd. not much of a difference, whether spacewise or timewise, or rather, if there is some space gain, it is wil full vhd. In spite of my inability to appreciate the wimboot preference with an internal wim file as opposed to good old wimb's wimboot which is external, I believe something could be gained if the Good Teuton and the Flying Dutchman worked in synergy. I also resorted to vhd_wimboot to tame some compression whims and caprices by winntsetup, which apparently does not like compression that much. Wimb has proved to be second to none in space-time synchretism, obviously with Alacrán's assistance.

Eureka! all the above problems were probably due to my applying Alacrán's latest wimbootcompress.ini in winntsetup, which is good for my wife''s laptop, not for my desktop. Once I resorted to the original version in winntsetup526, everything worked back like spick&span again. I have taken 2 days to realize it. that does by no means mean that the original version cannot be further modified. the wim nside system volume information has never been so small for me (950megs). so space gain possible. now let us see if it is also sensibly faster. in a bit.

well, speed-wise, it is definitely fast, it is hard to tell whether it is sensibly faster than full vhd, though. if I am not mistaken, wimb's original idea was to load in ram a lot of pointers and a few files and leave the wim file on another folder, on filedisk. it was designed for speed bootups on little-ram systems. of course, nothing or nobody dictates that it be used exclusively for the same purpose. it might as well cater for other configs and serve other purposes, if any, at least in my opinion, but I would beg anybody who differs to tell.

well, ultimate \Programdata, \Windows, \windows\system32 and \windows\syswow64 subfolder purge.

 

the following subfolders might as well not be present in your win10 and/or win11 miniwin, without any prejudice to ordinary functionality (unless otherwise proven or informed):

\windows\System32\GroupPolicy

\windows\System32\GroupPolicyUsers

 

and all \windows\syswow64 subfolders except downlevel and the language folder ??-?? (en-US or the like).

 

I have been running my miniwin for a couple of days and I have not seen any different behavior from when the above was there.

 

I wonder if they are of no prejudice to an integral windows setup either.

sorry if my message repeated itself after my editing it. I simply meant to integrate the first instance only with an additional sentence. I do not know how to delete its replications.
