Slipstreaming for xp recovery disk

  rosie 09:50 28 Sep 2005

I want to make an XP recovery disk but my original xp home disk is separate from the SP2 disk - should I embark on the process of slipstreaming so that these two can be integrated for making a recovery disk or is this unnecessary. I've had some recent computer problems which now appear resolved but I want to be sure of recovery in case of future problems.

Each time I have had to install SP-2 onto another PC,it has taken forever,yet the "slipstreamed" install CD only takes the same amount of time as the non-slipstreamed version so if I was you,I'd do a "slipstreamed" CD.

I'm gonna have another go at this click here soon,as I have a SATA system,and its a pain having to press F6/insert floppy,etc.

Yes definately slpstream, otherwise you will need to load all the upates from scratch. The link from Chegs ® click here is an excellent way to make a disk you can just put in the drive and walk awy and do something else while its reloading.
