Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2 for PC

Automatically Slipstream Windows XP SP3 plus Hotfixes usign scripts

Ross Smith has one of best methods available to create your self a slipstreamed Windows XP with SP3 installed and all the critical hotfixes, the only problem is that he stopped developing it in April 2009 so the list is about 40 hotfixes short, network installation SP3 version HERE

smithi's great script http://smithii.com/slipstream_xpsp3 please will you update it Ross ?

I also like using RVM Integrator v1.6.7 OR Autostreamer v1.0.30 to slipstream SP3 first to a folder containing the Windows XP SP2 I386 files this will give you a installation folder with all the SP3 files integrated.

Paul Thurrott's WinSupersite gives you a manual method if you prefer tutorial with screendumps HERE also how to exrtract the microsoft image file so that you can create your own bootable CD

Then download the Hotfixes EF2 list for use with using IDM from my public skydrive HERE is my exported list OR if you prefer use Windows Update Downloader and download one of the update lists, you must double click the ULZ file to install it into the interface, update lists HERE


N.B>these 2 won't slipstream, but they can be run after windows is installed:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/7/1/971f55c8-d512-494f-9c5e-7cc3f9b190ee/msxml4-KB954430-enu.exe

http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/7/5/2753aabc-24de-41be-a05b-d41fc76f3aad/msxml6-KB954459-enu-x86.exe

There are other alternatives like hfslip (similiar to smithi's script) and nLite + WinUpdateDownloader I have had limited success with both of them however there are alot of Program Addons available for nLite like WMP11 and IE8 and a whole list from MSFN available HERE

sata


IF you put Vista it will have the SATA drivers you need.
Not sure what you mean about the XP disk.
You can use any XP CD to slipstream. While the ideal CD to use would be XP SP2, you always slipstream in the SP2 on top of the base XP CD.
I would advise against the SP3 as it still has issues. And SP3 still doesn't have any SATA drivers.
Once you create a slipstream XP CD, even if it is the baseline XP without any SP on it, you can always add them through Windows Update.
