RE: How to prepare Windows Installation Discs

Hi Martin,

Here are some write-ups that cover the XP, 2000, and 2003 server aspect.

How to integrate software updates into your Windows installation source files:;en-us;828930

How to slipstream hotfixes that replace pre-existing driver files:

After you create Windows XP Service Pack 3 slipstreamed media, your product key is not accepted

The Windows & solution center does not list anything for slipstream with W7 yet, but I am sure it eventually will:

Subject: How to prepare Windows Installation Discs

Hello List,

I'm looking for some Informations about preparing the Windows
Installation CD's (XP Pro).
It should be possible to prepare an installation disc with Windows
including all Service packs.
How to do that? It is possible to prepare installation CD for more than
one machine?
And what about the Windows 7?
We prepare every week up to 20 PC's as a part of our measurement systems.
Therefore it is not our main topic, but I thing it is better to install
OS with all the updates
than make online update with every box.

Thank you for your answers

Have a nice day
