How to Slipstream a Windows CD with a Service Pack December 15, 2006

Posted by Mayank in winxp.

Slipstreaming refers to the process of integrating a Service Pack into the OS installation itself. Thus, all further installations of the OS will have the service pack preinstalled, thereby eliminating the tideous task of installing the service pack after the OS installation.

I was searching around for some good english to include in this blog, when I found this wonderful tool ! The tool is called nlite (http://www.nliteos.com/index.html). Its a neat tool which not only allows you to slipstream the service pack, it also allows you to customize your windows installation. It has support for burning a bootable image onto the cd/dvd.

So I guess anyone who reaches this blog and wanted to learn how to slipstream a cd, well I think you should be using this tool !! However, for the geeks out there, here are couple of links that I used to learn slipstreaming :
1. http://www.helpwithwindows.com/WindowsXP/winxp-sp2-bootcd.html
2. http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sp2_slipstream.asp (this site has instructions for burning the bootable cd with roxio as well as nero)
