as a warning i am using a slipstream version of vista ultimate
I have created a stable version that trims a lot of the fat, including 30 languages i don't speak, "pretty" features that i paid extra for, and tons of drivers/features that i haven't ever used.
However, after running sfc /scannow i don't get normal error messages (maybe this is obvious to everyone but me ;p). the only errors i get are "cannot verify component..." which include Intel and amd64. however i do not have an Intel chip so this seems odd to me.
my goal is to maintain the sanctity of my slipstream copy as much as possible and to be able to install sp1. i haven't tried using the repair installation yet due to fear of it "fixing" my installation more than just fixing the errors i get.
i am posting an attachment text file of my sfcdetails.txt with the above filter because i get none of the member style errors per the tutorials
