    Hi I don’t know if this guide has been posted before. I have used it several times and also found it good for slipstreaming other items also. I hope this is of use as you will find that if you are to install a P.C with Windows XP it save the time in installing SP2 separately. I am going to try slipstreaming the XP updates so his will save more time. I am not sure if this can be done but I will try. I will post back to let you guys and girls know if this works as my machine is very messed up at the moment and I think a clean boot would help.

    You also save time by installing a version of XP with SP2 already integrated. :)

    LOL

    Law123, if you are interested in slipstreaming an install disk you could try including the OS, Office 2003, Adobe Reader and also any antivirus software. I’ve used discs like that before and they save loads of time. You only need to install updated device drivers and patch the PC and that’s it ready to go! 8)

    I slipstreamed my XP install disk with SP2 some time back. I haven't found how to add in hot-fixes though, and unfortunately that article doesn't say!

    Modey that is the idea of slipstreaming as most of us probably dont own a version of XP with SP2 already intergrated. That is the idea of slipstreaming (Intergating). I hope you understand now.

    That sounds great! Sparky I will try this :)

    I know what slipstreaming is law, I guess I am used to having all the latest versions with the latest SP's integrated as in both my last job and current job we get CD's spammed at us by MS as soon as anything new comes out.

    Wish I had a link guys!

    Basically a couple of years ago when I was leaving a job the guy that was replacing me brought in a CD with Windows XP, Office 2003, Adobe Reader and Norton AV all slipstreamed on it. He had even customised it so when the PC booted up for the first time it had preconfigured desktop wallpaper and start menu. He then changed the relevant licence keys and used it as a restore disc for the network. At the time he was studying for the MCSE cert (Windows 2k).

    I’ve been meaning to try this myself as I support several networks all with different builds so slipstreaming installs could save loads of time! :biggrin

    AutoStreamer will get the job done, you can get it here .

    They also have a program called AutoPatcher which is nice.

    Update as promised at start of thread. I managed to get most hot fixes slipstreamed with Nlite.

    Here I hope will be of use to some is a Link to hot fixes that you seem to have to download and install in Windows updates.

    I did try slipstreaming MS office and some other programs they slipstreamed ok but did not install when I installed XP. They are on the disk and I can install them from the disk but not as an unattended install.

    Help please if anyone has had the same problem.
