Specs: Windows XP
Hello, i sell a lot of laptops locally, my problem is the disc i use, xp home sp2 has to get soo many updates each time its causing me to reach my limit with hughes net satellite. Is there a way i can get all the downloads on a seperate disc? I know i can get the sp3 but what about all the updates since? Is there a way to compile a current disc with updates??

You can create a custom slip streamed disk with SP3 and any other updates you want. The only issue is you have to manually find/download those updates. If you Google "xp slipstream" you'll get info on how to do it.

You can integrate sp 3 & Ryan's post sp 3 updates, using nlite

Ryans, post 3 updates is only till Jan 2009

Also, microsoft has iso files of security updates

Sure, there are a few ways to do that. This program allows you to make a slipstream cd for hassle free installations. Check it out. Also I believe Microsoft also has an ISO disk out that might help you out.

If all the pc's have the same hard ware, you can also integrate
drivers with nlite.

I think you need to make a new cd. I never used it, but I don't think you can alter the original cd. Glad you enjoyed your visit.

You copy files from the original xp cd to hard disk, then run
through the nlite wizard. you can also create an unattended
install disk.

It will then create a bootable cd, (iso) then burn as iso.

If you download the iso file, you will need to extract the files.

Then add them individually to the updates folder in the wizard.

Read the nlite instructions
