    I have a Macbook Air and I want to install Windows 7 in boot camp. however since I have a 128 SSD I definitely want to minimize the disk space it uses.
    I installed it on an imac and it took 14 Gigs!

    Is there any way to do what we can do in OS X, remove print drivers etc?
    I couldn't see any option during the installation on the imac.

    Dont like to allocate 24 gig for Windows since I need some space for any applications as well.

    Any ideas/suggestions?

    Go to Control Panel ---> Programs ---> Turn Windows features on or off. This is one quick way to remove some options (but not all of them). Make sure you know what you're removing before you do so though.
