The Perfect Windows Installation

Last response: in Windows XP

I created a bootdisk from <A HREF="http://=" target="_new">here</A> and it works great. I then went ahead and downloaded all of the WinXP updates to my harddrive (just change your windows update preferences) and along with drivers put everything on the WindowsXP CD.

I want to know how I can get windows to at least install the windows update files. If it would install the new detonator and iomega files that would of course be a bonus.

It makes so much sense to have a windows boot-cd on a cdrw that I can update to reflect the newest software.

Never thought of that. While we're at it, let's make it a DVD-Ram and put all our apps there too. Put the disk in, and don't take it out until you're completely done. :)

Unless there's a Service Pack to perhaps slipstream like I did Win2K, I'll probably hold off on doing this.

I normally put all drivers and programs on another CD, and update this CD every month, in case I get hosed.

I wish I had a fast CD burner, though, so I would use CDRW for this case. I'm aiming to get the cheap Lite-On 24x10x40 (I'm borrowing a friend's, and it's fast) so I can accomplish this, and not waste so many CDRs. I know they're cheap, but I just don't know what to do with them afterwards.

Does anyone know how to apply patches to the install files like you can do with the service packs? (W2k service packs and later that is)
