I have MS windows Vista one a HP laptop(Intel Core 2 duo 1.83 ghz and 2 gb ram) & xp on acer laptop(AMD dual core 2.2 Ghz & 1gb ram). I recently downloaded windows xp black edition from a torrent and installed it in VM and noticed that it takes a mere 95 MB after bootup!!! I would like to have similar small memory footprints for my vista machine (currently taking up 1.12 gb after bootup) & xp (currently taking up 450 MB after bootup).
Any tips to get similar results??
