About a month ago, we let you know about the release of NTLite, the successor to the very popular nLite software. For the uninitiated and who missed out the news, NTLite is a free (Pro version is also available) Windows setup customization tool with great set of features.
With NTLite, one can create unattended installation of Windows, add news drivers, software, wallpapers and themes to the ISO, integrate updates, remove Windows features to create lightweight ISOs, and more. For instance, you can integrate Service Packs and updates into the ISO image of Windows or integrate graphics and audio drivers to avoid installing all drivers after installing Windows OS.
The tool also offers hundreds of settings to tweak Windows operating system even before installing the same. Take, for instance, you can configure Windows to show Computer and Network icons on desktop by default.
As you can see in the above picture, NTLite sports an easy-to-use interface. The live edit mode can be used to modify a live installation of Windows without re-installing it. That is, install and run NTLite, modify the installation and then reboot your PC if necessary to apply all changes.
NTLite for Windows 10
Since the software was released before release of Windows 10, the developer has updated NTLite to add Windows 10 support. In addition to that the tool has been updated to fix various bugs and add new features.
The update is helpful for early Windows 10 adopters who would like to customize the Windows 10 installation.
NTLite is compatible with both 32 and 64-bit Windows and doesn’t require .NET Framework or any other additional software. In addition to Windows 10, NTLite is compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1.
The free version of NTLite offers automation, integration and basic component removal but is good enough for home users. The live install modifications feature isn’t present in the free version.
