How do I make a Service Pack 2 CD-R

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

I am going to write the Service Pack 2 to a CD-R. I have extracted it and
the top folder will be i386. I'm not sure if the name of the CD-R matters
how about WinXPSP2? But one thing I am trying to avoid is the sfc issue.

Using sfc in Windows 2000 I was asked to put my Windows 2000 SP3 CDROM in
the drive. I put the CDR in that I used.but it didn't work. Investigating
this issue at Microsoft the best I could come up with is that I used
update.exe to install the Serrvice Pack. I could find no other executable
in the Service Pack that was clearly going to update the system. But doing
this led to the sfc issue. I want to avoid that.

I'd like to put a Autrun in also. But I don't know the executable it should
call. Any ideas how to do this right? Thanks.

    If you downloaded the IT professional version (266mb), you can burn this to
    a CD.. what you can't do is extract SP2 from an XP installation and expect
    it to work at a later date.. in another reply, you have been given the link
    to order an SP2 CD.. use it..

    I never expected to "extract SP2 from an XP installation." What I expected
    to do is write SP2 to a CD-R and have it work with sfc when it is run. If
    Microsoft provides just such a CDROM why then can I not make my own? But
    from what kurttrail said above this sfc issue is going to result whether I
    make my own or obtain the one from Microsoft. Maybe I need to do that
    slipstream after all. In which case I would put that CD-R in when sfc wants
    the Windows XP CDROM. Do you think that will work?

    Yes, I have used a slipstreamed CD with sfc since SP1 has been released.
    And SP2 also.

    Why the hell is Microsoft offereing a SP2 CD-ROM when they KNOW it will mess
    up SFC? Why do they do these type of things? Is it any wonder I stay away
    from the majority of security fixes this company chucks out there so often?
    There is probably a concerened individual that knows the reprocussions of
    these updates but is not going to jeopardize their job telling anyone.
    That's the way it seems to me.

    Yes, that is exactly what you need to do, slipstream a full XP w/SP2 CD.
    Yes, it will work.

    Because some people can't download a file that size easily.

    Why does MS encourage OEM to not give out full install CDs, which makes
    it impossible for OEM customers to do a repair install?

    MS doesn't really give a F*#k about it's customers, except to use
    behavior modification on them to tow the Microsoft Party Line.

    You should download and install MS security updates, because too many of
    the virus writers are targeting unpatched computers, but stay away from
    adding layers of code to the patching process, and do the patching
    manually.

    If you want to try to avoid SFC issues, then you do want to slipstream.

    Sorry, but yes, you do want to do a slipstreamed Windows XP w/SP2 CD to
    avoid the SFC problems. Inserting an SP2 upgrade CD alone will not
    satisfy SFC prompting for a Windows XP w/SP2 CD.

    Well there you go. It seems then that the SP2 which can be obtained from
    Microsoft will still result in this sfc issue? Right?

    That's the way it looks. So then what good is the SP2 from Microsoft? Same
    issue will occur will it not?
    How about this.

    Install Windows XP SP2 from the Network Install.
    Slipstream SP2 into Windows XP burn that.
    Use that when queried for the Windows XP CD-ROM by SFC.

    Think that's the right thing to do to avoid this SFC issue?

    Right. I have done that and extracted the Service Pack. It is under the
    i386 folder. Trouble is I want to set a autorun in it but I don't know the
    executable it should point to and if the name of the CD matters. I did this
    with Windows 2000 SP3 and used update.exe on it to install the Service Pack.
    Trouble is sfc doesn't like it and according to Microsoft this issue of sfc
    not being able to complete is because the Service Pack was installed using
    update.exe. That's my issue which I am trying to address here.

    Didn't know about that particular web site Kurt, but thanks for suggesting
    it. It really made a lot of since to me about security and "automatic
    updates". Thanks !
