Well, I can confirm that the "magically" unplethoric winsxs folder mentioned a few posts above works perfectly on version 19041.329 as well.

WinSxS provides different functionality
I understand, the current task is about VHD RAM disk booting. 
A mimimum WinSxS size is requested. To support side by side assemblies is a base WinSxS feature. 
Other WinSxS features may fail.
The folders Winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-s..cingstack.resources_* and
Winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-servicingstack_31bf3856ad364e35_* are not required to boot.
You may delete these.
A default Win 10 uses hardlinks 
fsutil.exe hardlink list C:\windows\System32\comctl32.dll
There are more comctl32.dll files. They are added as addional files, they occupy additional space at the RAM disk.
fsutil hardlink list gdiplus.dll
certutil -hashfile system32\GdiPlus.dll
SHA1 hash of system32\GdiPlus.dll:
certutil -hashfile WinSxS\amd64_microsoft.windows.gdiplus_6595b64144ccf1df_1.0.19041.264_none_0b9a2e5cdd119cfc\gdiplus.dll
SHA1 hash of WinSxS\amd64_microsoft.windows.gdiplus_6595b64144ccf1df_1.0.19041.264_none_0b9a2e5cdd119cfc\gdiplus.dll:
certutil -hashfile WinSxS\amd64_microsoft.windows.gdiplus_6595b64144ccf1df_1.1.19041.264_none_faeb9d41761776a3\gdiplus.dll
SHA1 hash of WinSxS\amd64_microsoft.windows.gdiplus_6595b64144ccf1df_1.1.19041.264_none_faeb9d41761776a3\gdiplus.dll:
There are several individual 64bit gdiplus.dll files at the hard disk. All are equal at this example.
There is one hardlink, and some single files..
The occupied space at the RAM disk can be reduced with addional hardlinks.

So, what do I suggest I do after deleting what is not required at boot?
