    trying to get a lighter windows xp image using nlite or otherwise

    weplayqa Novice

      I use vmware primarily for qa testing so that I can have versions of internet explorer 7, internet explorer 6, etc... in different images. The main thing the image needs to do is connect to the network, browse, and print. At times the performance of my images is slow and I would like to speed this up if possible. I read about nlite and created an iso image, but when I tried to install it, I got an 'copy file to disk' error. I tried using both an iso image to install, burning the image to a cd, and then trying the cd. I am working on a macbook pro with leopard installed. Anyone have any tips on either what might be causing the 'copy to disk' or the larger issue of lighter image that would run faster for my purposes?
