    Quickest way to do this ? (windows slipstream disk)

    Ive got a windows XP disk, with SP1 slipstreamed onto it.

    Is there a quick way of finding out all of the "patchs" that have been releases that go on top of SP1, downloading them all, and slipstreaming them onto the windows installation disk ?

    Dont tell me to wait for SP2 please, ive got some machines which need to be done very soon !

    Thanks

    Don't know much about it - but worth a try.

    Edit:

    Follow this link instead - it will get you there a bit quicker:

    Instructions here (possibly - have only quickly scanned the page):

    batch file and a directory full of the hotfixes?
    Bung on server, point all machines at it?

    Or are you thinking in terms of keeping it all on CD?

    I get 41 results when checking for XP Pro SP1 (11 critical / security, 23 multi-language and 7 recommended). I get a lot more for 2000 SP4.

    Want it all on the same CD, as these machines will not be networked. All stand alones.
    The only way i can see of doing this at the moment is

    a) download all the updates, put them in a directory in the CD, and execute them one by one manually or batch file

    b) do it at installation time via this method, which is essentially the same as a) but just doing it at installation time, and not after windows is installed.

    Ideally, I'm looking for a true slipstreamed CD, like you could with sp1. Is it even possible ?
    can individual updates be slipstreamed onto the winxp image ?, if so, i suppose i could just integrate everyone into the image. Ill need some help writing a batch file for this though, as I'm not entirely familiar with them

    Read the instructions - You have to select to download "DYNAMIC UPDATES" - what you're getting is the option to download individual hotfixes.

    Agent - the MSFN article is about as close as your going to get to a true Slipstreamed image, in that the hotfixes are installed during install, rather than after install. The only problem is keeping the disk up to date (that's what CD-RW's are for!).

    Still...SP2 not that far away now!

    I wonder if we're looking at the wrong instructions then? The ones linked are for v3 of windows update. They don't match up with v4 very well (check boxes are different and obviously there's no mention of dynamic updates anywhere).

    Agent - AFAIK the only way to install the hotfixes automatically is to construct a batch file and use command line options with each hotfix (basically you need to use either unattended or quiet mode and disable the reboot / restart after the patch installs). Unfortunately looking at some of the patches I've downloaded for Win2K the command line options aren't the same for every patch file so you'll have to check each one before you write the batch file... It will still take some time for each PC but you shouldn't have to keep clicking anything or restart for each fix which should help. You could even make the batch file auto run when you insert the CD for minimum effort. Not *all* of the fixes use the same parameters but most of them have either an unattended (-u, -m or -passive in some patches) or quiet (-q or -quiet) mode and a switch to tell them not to reboot (usually -z)...

    Actually... Just reading your original post again - are you building new machines or just doing a fresh install? Becuase if they're using the same / very similar hardware you can just install and update one machine and use ghost (or similar) to copy the complete image onto the other hard drives. It can be done if they're using different hardware but you'll need to minimise any problems (i.e. use the microsoft software IDE driver and uninstall most of the devices from the computer (using device manager) before you take the image). And then you'll have to re-install all the drivers on each machine and you'll probably run into one or two problems (basically it's *much* easier if you have identical hardware)

    Forget all that. It appears that the instructions are out of date and what you're looking for is this:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

    Minimal instructions here:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;322069

    (the first set of instructions probably still work - it's probably just the download part that is out of date)

    Just about to post the same thing!

    Will investigate this later - Could make my RIS installs a lot easier (currently scripted to install hotfixes after install)
