WinReducer8: Customize Your Windows 8 Installation

One key feature that separates Windows 8 from Windows 7 is speed. The new operating system takes less time to install programs and apps. Moreover, it consumes less disk space than Windows 7 operating system. Even the process of reinstalling and repairing Windows 8 has been made simple via introduction of Reset and Refresh PC features. That said, since the OS offers speed, customization options are cut short. Nevertheless, there are third-party tools always available to help you overcome most shortcomings. If you have been searching for software to have an unattended and customized Windows 8 installation by integrating drivers, removing Windows features and apps, WinReducer8 is just the freeware for you.

    Its an Alpha I know but can only be installed on Win 8, now I wanted to customise in Win 7 before installing 8, no can do, silly limatation in my opinion.

    The maker of the program makes his Win8 images (via WinReducer) from a VM install of Win8, so that is an option for you to consider as well. In fact, I used to do the same thing when using vLite; I would perform the vLite session from within a VM install but on a folder with extracted Windows ISO that I mounted to be available to the VM.
