@GH0st There a couple of reasons why SP4 feels faster.

I suspect that performance improvements come from other changes: - ESENT Catalog DB has minimal s...

I suppose another approach would be to integrate SP3 to your source, apply nLite to that to slim, (you'd probably have to install at that point), then apply SP4 to that. But at best it would take longer that way and be a bit inefficient and might leave unnecessary files behind, and at worst would s...
