    Make a new XP CD with all the updates?

    Hiya,

    Is there any way to make a new XP CD with all the MS updates on it so i've not got to run all the MS updates when i re-install Windows on a PC?

    Cheers, Ben

    Yes if you install XP on a machine, download updates and install what you want and with this software you can make a slipstream disc that will make a bootable installation disc of windows XP.

    nLite is fantastic. I've used this many times and should be exaclty what your after. Use this in conjunction with RyanVM's update packages found at http://www.ryanvm.net/msfn/updatepack.html

    nLite doesn't work with sysprep due to signing issues. It's also only for personal use when you read the license :|

    I might give Ryan's silent installer a try if nlite is frowned on for education use. I'll give it a whirl.

    Thanks for all your help, much appreciated!

    RyanVM's packages are meant for use with nLite to make a slipstreamed/unattended install CD. As far as i'm aware you can't use the packages on their own.

    There are other alternatives to nLite just google "slipstream windows"

    If you are just using it for patches it will probably work. When removing some components after sysprep it starts looking for files that already exist, its just a few but it interupts sysprep.
