Hey Guys, I'm trying to make an bootable image to deploy WinXP SP3 for a particular type of PC. I'm getting stuck actually setting up a machine to take this image from. The problem is that the image is simply too big. Reason is that I have got massive areas of the drive 'Reserved for windows'. So instead of a 600mb image I now have 10GB+! If I defrag I can see a strip of contiguous files mid-way across the graph. Example (not the actual machine just a doctored version i've made[can you tell ]) : Is this a representation of the 'reserved sapce'? How can I get rid of it!? I have removed page file, hiberfile, system restore etc... Cheers guys!
