    Question creating a slipstreaming disk?

    Hey there,
    I need to create a slipstream disk using my XP Home disk. I downloaded SP2, but not sure how to make the disk. What is really stumping me is how to copy a read-only disk like XP. Anyway, I know there must be a way since I see everybody doing it. So, please masters of the PC let me be part of the in-crowd and school me in the art of slipstreaming.
    Thanks.

    Go here and read up on it:
    How To: Slipstream your XP installation | Maximum PC

    Use nlite, here's the forum with lots of info on it:
    MSFN Forums -> nLite

    You need to use a program to integrate the sp2/3, drivers, programs or whatever you want, then you can remove things also. Just be aware that if you are removing things it can cause issues. Its best to use a VM to check that your copy that you made works or having another computer otherwise

    Hi, also be aware that not all OEM XPs will slipstream, Dell in particular.

    Thanks for the tip,pipsicle;I am using a Win XP disk from microsoft.
    I tried using Autostreamer to build the slipstream, yet the disk does not seem to be bootable. Anybody have experence with Autostreamer and said problem.

    Use nLite.... nLite - Deployment Tool for the bootable Unattended Windows installation

    Just download SP3 and save it to your root directory. Copy your XP disc to your root directory or copy it from your CD when prompted by nlite. slap in any drivers you wish.... like RAID drivers!! and off you go. You can even put in your XP/Vista key and do an unattended install.

    Check out Ryans site... RyanVM's Windows XP Post-SP3 Update Pack ... more options than just a slipstream job. You won't have to get all the hotfixes w/ Update Manager like when you use nliteos and just slipstream SP3.

    I took the easy way out and used nliteos and just copied my XP cd to my hdd and saved the SP3 download to my root directory. Point nlinte to the source (your ripped OS) and destination (DVD/CDRW drive w/ a blank CD). nlite gives you the option to install drivers on to the slipstream also.... I only used the RAID driver file.... iaStor. Works like a charm. When I was done I just ran update manager a few times to get all the hotfixes.

    +1 for Nlite!!

    And you really should have a Good ISO Program like UltraISO or MagicISO installed

    Another vote for nLite and CDBurnerXP. They are the easiest way to slipstream that I've found. I just used them to create a custom XP install disk, very nice! The nLite website has a basic user guide. Good luck :-)
