How to Slipstream Drivers on Windows XP using WINNT.SIF


So you have already slipstreamed Service Pack 3 using one of the many tools available I prefer Autostreamer v1.0.33 Its Autopatchers little brother and takes the legwork out of uncompressing and recabbing. I then tend to integrate WMP11 using boooggy's slipstreamer this allow then installation of all associated WMP11 hotfixes.

When all this has been done its a good idea to slipstream all the post SP3 hotfixes to the I386 folder and also copy the WINNT.SIF file that you have created to perform an unattended install with drivers.inf files.

One of the best update packs available is Xables the latest version is v2.0.2 (August 2010) download link HERE this what the pack includes History at the point of posting August 2010 its stands at around 219 post SP3 hotfixes its only missing about 12 hotfixes mainly NET. Framework Service Pack fixes. Plus 12 optional updates you will need to go to the update website to get those if you really want them, or here is a list so you can google them

  1. Update for Windows XP (KB961118)
  2. Update to .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 for the .NET Framework Assistant 1.0 x86 (KB963707)
  3. Security Update for Jscript 5.8 for Windows XP (KB971961)
  4. Update for Windows XP (KB976662)
  5. Security Update for Windows XP (KB981332)
  6. Microsoft Browser Choice Screen Update for EEA Users of Windows XP (KB976002)
  7. Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Update for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB982168)
  8. Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 Security Update for Windows 2000 and Windows XP (KB979906)
  9. Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Security Update for Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP x86 (KB979909)
  10. Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Update for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB982524)
  11. Security Update for .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 on Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB983583)
  12. Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows XP (KB2183461)
When you have installed this you are ready to copy your WINNT.SIF file to the I386 folder and create the drivers folder in your Windows Source Folder, then use Signets DriverGrabber v0.51b on your existing installation to get all the INF DLL and EXE files that you will need for your driver folders

Create an $OEM$ folder and place inside it a folder called $1 and then another inside that called Drivers then a folders for each driver make sure that you number then to ensure that chipset is always first.

001_chipset <-----this must be first
002_LAN
003_audio
004_display
005_monitor
006_modem
007_USB
008_ <------
more folders you need to add to the OemPNPDriverPaths

these are the paths that I have specified in the WINNT.SIF relevant section, you MUST add these lines in the [Unattended] section OR it will fail on you. !!!!

NOTE: The OemPnPDriversPath can't search sub-folders to all the files that Driver Grabber will give you will have to copied them to the relevant numbers root folders, and remove the subfolders for each driver remember that each path is separated by a semi-colon

DON'T
add an extra semi-colon at the end, it might fail !!!

OemPnPDriversPath=\Drivers\001_chipset\;\Drivers\002_LAN\;\Drivers\003_audio\;\Drivers\004_display_2003\;\Drivers\004_display_2004\;\Drivers\005_monitor\;\Drivers\006_modem\;\Drivers\007_USB\
DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
NonDriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
UpdateInstalledDrivers = Yes <---- this line is critical to make sure

All you need to do to complete this process is change these two sections to suit your OEM Licence and Owner Details.

[GuiUnattended]
AdminPassword="" <------- this can be encrypted using sysprep
EncryptedAdminPassword=No
OEMSkipRegional=1
TimeZone=85
OemSkipWelcome=1
ProfilesDir="C:Documents and Settings" <------ you can change this

[UserData]
ProductKey=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
FullName="your name"
OrgName="your organization"
ComputerName=your computer <----- note that there are no "." on this



FINAL NOTE: if you are using OOBE.INI in the either the $OEM$\$$\system32\oobe folder OR a cabbed (use Compression Bin by Jcarle) to create the OOBE.IN_ in the I386 folder, to set up new users (max 6 admins only) then make sure that you don't use these three lines in your WINNT.SIF to avoid any setup errors on the Out of Box Experience.

[Data]
AutomaticUpdates=yes

[Unattended Section]
AutoActivate = Yes


OR you will get a Out of Box Experience Error after the install as these skip the Create User Accounts and Set Up Internet Screens

e07da17.jpg

If you have any other problems add these sections to your OOBE.IN_ and WINNT.SIF files that you have in your slipstreamed I386 folder

WINNT.SIF
[Unattended]
UnattendSwitch
= Yes

[Display]
AutoConfirm = 1

OOBE.IN_
[
StartupOptions]
Offline = 1
Registration = 1
ScreenResolutionCheck = 0

[Options]
IntroOnly = 0
NoIspPreconfig = 1
JoinDomain = 0
AdminPW = 0
SkipAutoUpdate = 1

[UserInfo]
Identity000="You"

remember to keep your OOBE.INI file so that you can edit it before you cab it with compression bin or makecab.

I have windows home edition service pack 1 and i need to update my browser? i keep getting debug errors


You will need to update XP to Service Pack 3. Just Google "XP Service Pack 3" and follow instructions, OR go to http://www.microsoft.com/update - this will also update your browser to Internet Explorer 8.

You can install Firefox with no special updates, but it would be better to update to SP3 anyway.

What is the different between xp serrvice pack 1 and 2


A service pack is a collection of all updates released to that point, and often includes new features, as well.

The major enhancements in Windows XP Service Pack 2 include Security Center, Automatic Updates, Windows Firewall, and Internet Explorer.

Security Center is an entirely new feature provided by Windows XP Service Pack 2. The Security Center service runs as a background process in Windows XP and routinely checks the status of the following components:
1. Windows Firewall: Security Center detects whether Windows Firewall is enabled or disabled. Security Center can also detect the presence of some third-party software firewall products.
2. Automatic Updates: Security Center detects the current Automatic Updates setting in Windows XP. If Automatic Updates is turned off or not set to the recommended settings, the Security Center provides appropriate recommendations.
3. Virus Protection: Security Center detects the presence of antivirus software from many third-party organizations. If the information is available, the Security Center service also determines whether the software is up-to-date and whether real-time scanning is turned on.

When Security Center detects an important security condition (such as improper settings), it displays a pop-up notice in the notification area.

Windows XP Service Pack 2 provides several enhancements to the Automatic Updates feature, including the following:
■ The latest version of Automatic Updates offers expanded support for Microsoft products, including Microsoft Office.
■ Previous versions of Automatic Updates could download only critical updates. Now Automatic Updates can download updates in the following categories: security updates, critical updates, update roll-ups, and service packs.
■ Automatic Updates now prioritizes the download of available updates based on the importance and size of the updates. For example, if a large service pack is being downloaded, and a smaller security update is released to address an exploit, that security update will be downloaded more quickly than the service pack.
■ Automatic Updates is now more automated. The need for users to accept End-User License Agreements (EULAs) has been eliminated. Also, the user now has a choice of whether to restart the computer following the installation of updates that might require a restart. Updates that do require a restart can now be consolidated into a single installation so that only one restart is required.

Previous versions of Windows XP include a software-based firewall named Internet Connection Firewall (ICF). After installing Windows XP Service Pack 2, this firewall is replaced by Windows Firewall.
Windows Firewall boasts a number of enhancements, including the following:
1. Windows Firewall is now enabled by default on all network
connections.
2. Windows Firewall provides an interface for configuring global settings that apply to all the connections of the computer.
3. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Firewall supports a new feature that allows you to keep Windows Firewall enabled and also not allow any exceptions; only solicited traffic is allowed. This new feature is intended to create an even more secure environment when connecting to the Internet in a public location or other unsecured location.
4. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, a startup Windows Firewall policy performs stateful packet filtering during startup, so that the computer can perform basic network tasks (such as contacting
DHCP and DNS servers) and still be protected.
5. In previous versions, you could not apply firewall rules based on Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can configure Windows Firewall so that firewall rules apply to IP addresses (or IP address ranges), meaning that only traffic from computers with valid IP addresses is allowed through the firewall.
6. In previous versions, you configure permitted traffic by specifying the TCP and UDP ports used by a service or application. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can also configure permitted traffic by specifying the file name of the application. When the application runs, Windows firewall monitors the ports on which the application listens and automatically adds them to the list of allowed incoming traffic.

Internet Explorer:
Windows XP Service Pack 2 introduces a number of new security features to Internet Explorer 6. As with the rest of the enhancements introduced with Windows XP Service Pack 2, most of the updates to Internet Explorer are intended to provide better security.

Need a key for windows xp service pack 2


The Microsoft "Service Pack 2" is just a collection of program-updates and security-fixes for either the "original" Windows XP, or for Windows XP with Service Pack 1 already applied.

As such, it does _NOT_ require any "key".

Note that it's probable that Service Pack 2 will _NOT_ install on a "bootleg" version of Windows XP (original or SP1), because the SP2 update includes the Microsoft "Windows Genuine Advantage" update.
