Create a Slip Stream version of Windows XP:
http://www.webtree.ca/windowsxp/slipstream.htm

The main page is above - can someone clarify me on No. 4 (I re-type below):

(4) A full version of the Service Pack you want to slip stream. These are large files
and can be download here:
Service Pack 2 (SP2)
Service Pack 1a (SP1a)
Service Pack 1 (SP1 original)
or you can use the file called "XPSP2.EXE" located in the root of the Service Pack 2 CD
if you have one handy.



My questions:

1. Yes, I have Service Pack 2 CD from Microsoft.com, is that all and complete Service
Pack I ever need? I can omit (SP1) and (SP1a) altogether? "XPSP2.EXE" is 266MB big and
Windows-xp Pro is 512MB - no more disk space for (SP1 and SP1a) if this step can
accommodate and burn correctly.

2. If you says I really needs all the above then is (SP1 and SP1a) are the same so I
really need only one - get only (SP1a) or both - which one is correct?

3. If you says get all the above; is it correct to load in this order; (SP1), (SP1a)
then (SP2)?

4. My CD-R has only 700MB of disk space - if I follow No. 3 steps above - will there be
enough space to copy all? Sorry I don't have DVD drive and only CD BUT I'll burn my
Slip Stream CD in another PC which has a CD burner drive.

5. If I miss something - just tell me what is the best way to do a Slip Stream Win-xp.

Thanks!

Peterk,

1, 2 and 3. SP2 is cumulative. It includes all previous
updates. You don't need to worry about SP1 or SP1a. You've got
all you need right on that SP2 CD.

4. When you slipstream SP2 into your original XP CD a
significant number of files are updated (as in replaced). The
updated files will easily fit on one CD.

5. Here's another article that may clear up some of the
confusion:

You only need to slipstream Windows XP and SP2. The slipstream process will
combine the new additions of SP2 into Windows XP. All the information will
fit onto a standard CD.
For further details on slipstreaming visit my website

Awesome! John,
Your: http://xphelpandsupport.mvps.org/how_do_i_create_a_slip... is the best
written procedure and easy to understand.

Comment to improve and make it more complete on the topic of;
3) Copy the Service Pack 2 to a folder.

a) Some guy cannot find their SP2 which were already auto install in PC.
b) Some guy find it is impossible to download SP2 because their serial # says invalid.
c) Some lucky guy have their SP2 CD handy - copy only the 'XPSP2.EXE' file to folder -
Correct?
d) Is it better and possible to download SP2 to a folder?

Lucky me I have letter (c). Thanks for showing us your 'better' procedure.

Regards,
Rino

Well that certainly impressed you:-)

Actually you can download the whole SP2 package from Microsoft directly to a
folder. Luckily you have a hard copy, but the principle is the same.

But you do have some valid points which i will look into as soon as i have
more time.

I attempted this twice some months ago and the final CD wouldn't boot for me
either time. I may be missing a step and will try again. However, I read on
one of the sites that a "full" version of WinXP was required. Does this
mean my WinXp upgrade CD can't be slipstreamed? I don't want to try again
if this is the case.

Upgrade CDs can be slipstreamed. If your original upgrade CD boots but
your slipstreamed copy doesn't, yes, you are missing a step, most likely
extracting and copying the boot image.

Not all CD burning software supports making bootable CDs. Be sure yours
does, if it doesn't you will need something else.

Thanks for the response and additional hyperlink. I'll give it another

You're welcome. Be sure to check in the CD burning software for how it
handles creating bootable CDs - again, not all packages do this.
