Saving Windows XP Updates

  Jakey boy 10:00 01 Jun 2004

I've read other threads on this subject, but what I need help with is slightly different. I have Windows ME and a BB connection. Therefore I have no problems with downloading and installing updates for my own system. My Bro-in-law, has Win XP Pro, on a system I built for him, but he has no BB connection. If for some reason he needs me to do a fresh install of XP Pro, is there any way I can supply him with the complete set of updates from CD? In other words, can i download the XP Pro updates to a CD,(or to my HD and then to a CD) for use in updating his system if need be?

I actually have the Microsoft CD, but didn't realise it was also for XP. I thought just for ME/98/SE etc. I take it this will be enough for my purposes then?

The Microsoft CD only has updates up to Oct 03 in spite of it being "dated" Feb 04 ! You will still need the MS Hotfixes since Nov 03 to date from the Win Update site !

Thats ok, they should be easily downloaded. It was just the bulk of them that was a worry, given the slow connection he has.
