Topic: How to slipstream Windows XP SP2 with EasyBoot
started by: xoben
Posted by xoben on Aug. 08 2004,04:48Step1: Copying the Source Files
1. Insert your WindowsXP CD
2. If prompted, do not install Windows XP
3. Copy the entire contents of the CD to c:\easyboot\disk1
Step 2: Download the Service Pack
1. Download the latest Service Pack from Microsoft's web site.
This should be one large executable file named WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe.
2. Run the executable with a -x at the end.
e.g. "WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe -x" (no quotes)
3. It will first verify the integrity of the file.
4. Then you will be prompted for a location to extract the Service Pack.
For the example, use c:\xp_sp2
5. Click on OK when the extraction is complete
Step 3: Performing the SlipStream
1. Given the previous examples, go to the c:\xp_sp2\i386\update directory
3. When it is finished, you will see the message The Integrated install has completed successfully
Step 4: Making a bootable ISO
1. Start EasyBoot
2. Click 'Make ISO', and set options as the following picture:
3. Click 'Make' to create a bootable ISO
4. Click 'Return' to close the dialog
Step 5: Burning the ISO image
1. If you have Nero installed, put a blank CD-R disc to your recorder, and click 'Burn CD' to burn
2. If not, please see a topic here:< http://www.ezbsys.com/cgi-bin/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST&f=2&t=27 >

Posted by BlackWar on Sep. 09 2004,12:24Just to let you folks know, you dont need to extract the service pack to slipstream it. you can use the extention right from the service pack. here is a list of commands that the service pack allows and what they mean.....
/help Displays this message
/quiet Quiet mode (no user interaction or display)
/passive Unattended mode (progress bar only)
/uninstall Uninstalls the package
/norestart Do not restart when installation is complete
/forcerestart Restart after installation
/l Lists installed Windows hotfixes or update packages
/o Overwrite OEM files without prompting
/n Do not backup files needed for uninstall
/f Force other programs to close when the computer shuts down
Posted by MichaelTea on Oct. 26 2004,17:45Everyone:
This is good info to know
Being able to install XP already updated with SP2 is a real time saver.
Posted by Gork on Nov. 02 2004,06:09I slipstreamed SP1 awhile back and went through TEDIOUS EFFORT to figure out how to automatically add in drivers for me NIC and SATA devices as well. I was really dreading figuring out, once again, how to add the additional device drivers to a slipstreamed SP2 WinXP Pro CD. But I ran across nLite at < http://nuhi.msfn.org/ > which makes the entire process very VERY simple. Take a peek...
Posted by Bubi on Jan. 04 2005,04:22Hi, I need some information about "how make a bin image"
Please help me.
Posted by Mark on Feb. 17 2005,10:14Is there a way to include the product key on the CD as well, so that entering it is not required?

This is called Unattended Installation and you can get some information at < MSFN >

I think you are in wrong forum according to this issue of yours. However, here is a couple of links to serve your needs:

And perhaps even better in your case, this one:

Note: You need windowsXP with sp2 integrated or Server 2003 to make it work.
