Slipstreamed XP + sp2

  Quickbeam 21:16 23 Jan 2005

After several months of strugling to get a stable instalation of SP2 installed, I followed the directions from another thread on slipstreaming an XP disk. I followed the directions & integrated sp2 with my early XP disk to make a bootable XP+sp2 disk. Then I reinstalled onto a formated partition... now I have the stable instalation I always expected! Anyone else had this work?

I have created the bootable XP + SP2, but haven't had to use it YET.... I am one of the lucky ones, no problems with

(1) use "AutoStreamer" produced by forum member "Powerless", you can find him/her in many places

(2) even better way is to use XPCreate which slipstrem xp2 plus all updated hotfixes click here

This one seems to have found great interest... The link I used was click here It has very clear directions for those of use that need step by step hand holding guides!

that's a lot easier than Tomjerry's link

I didn't Produce Autostreamer err I came up with here

[The link that I posted on SP2 Forum to my free websapce, somehow managed to make it into Autostreamers readme file ;-) ]

It's easier than this: click here or the one on winsupersite.

They'll both do the samething just depends how easy you want it.

...and I'm a HE by the way ;-)

I know i have asked you this before and you said it might work. Is it possible to create a slipstreamed xp boot disc using autostreamer from my i386 folder on my harddrive?

I don't have a xp disc as my installation was pre-installed on a hidden partition.

I have tried to create one with autostreamer choosing"I want to specify my own local windows share" option but have had no joy( i am most likely doing something wrong)

If you could explain how to use the above option i would be very grateful.

Incidently quite a while ago i did manage to create a xp bootdisc with sp1 slipstreamed from click here but it was a major job (for me anyway)and autostreamer looks a lot easier option.

I've just been switching between 2 partitions, one updated to sp2 & the other installed with sp2... It realy is working cleanly, if anyone else has had a bad sp2 experience then you really should try this way.
