Integrating Service Packs


A

adventureforth

hi,

i have an older Windows 2000 Pro install CD. during the install
procedure, it won't recognize hard drives beyond 137 GB. i know that my
motherboard is capable of handling larger hard drives, and i've been
told that service pack 4 will allow for recognition of larger hard
drives.

my question is - is there some way i can integrate the service packs
with the original older install CD, so that Windows 2000 would
recognize the larger hard drives during the install procedure? as it
stands, i have to:

1. install Windows 2000
2. install service pack 4
3. use partitioning software to format and partition the hard drive
beyond 137 GB.

thanks in advance.

Adventure,

I have done the exact same thing already. It is easy to do. The program,
SlipStream is a free download and works great.

Just remember to always keep the origianal (not that you would pitch it).
If you have to slipstream Service Pack 5 (not that there will be one), you
must do it with the original versions, not the version that all ready has
Service Pack 4 merged.

The program your looking for, that automatically does your SlipStream for
you is called "AutoStreamer". My versions is AutoStreamer1033.exe. I
don't konw what the latest version is.
