C

CeNo

All,

Sorry if OT - I am looking to create a bootable, slimstreamed copy of my Win
XP CD with SP2, but I also want to add all the latest updates, hotfixes etc
to the disc.
Can any one help or advise on how to achieve this. From getting the
updates, to incorporating them into the cd.
I am using Nero to create the disc.

Thx in advance!

CeNo.

CeNo,
These resources should get you well on your way;
'Unattended XP Install' (http://unattended.msfn.org/)

'nLite 1.0 beta 5' (http://www.nliteos.com/)
(Nlite Windows Installation Customizer is always a beta product) grin.
Best,

Guys,

Thx for help!

Question for you though...

How do I download the hotfixes etc, without having to install them? If you
know what I mean!

Hi,

You can use the Windows Update Catalog to obtain the updates:

You can download each update manually - based off the KB Article number,
etc. That way you can back it up/burn a CD of them in case you need them or
use them to keep a slipstream/integrated (updated) Windows XP CD.

How to use the Windows Update Catalog

Integrate software updates into your Windows installation source files

Really customize your CD..

You can see the critical (security and other) patches released for a given
month using the following:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms##-***.mspx

At the end of this line you see "ms##-***.mspx" .. If you simply replace ##
with the two-digit year and the *** with the three character month
abbreviation, you will see the list of "critical" and "important" patches
for that month (since it only happens once a month usually, if you check by
the second Tuesday (wait until afternoon) of each month - you should be
fine) - note that future months will not work.

As an example...

December 2004's patches..
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms04-dec.mspx

March 2005's patches..
None released.. so that one will fail...

May 2005's patches..
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms05-may.mspx

July 2005's patches..
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms05-jul.mspx


Once you get on the page with each month's list of patches.. You can go to
the related KB articles and grab the appropriate files from there.
