How to make a Slipstreamed Windows XP+SP2 Bootable CD - How to make a Slipstreamed Windows XP+SP2 Bootable CD
Wed, February 23 2005 | 2:06PM | PermaLink Feedback?
I am a user who tends to install windows a lot. It is useful for reviews to have a fresh copy on the machine to remove software as a possible variable. I also tend to experiment with overclocked settings that from time to time cause the system to eat its own O/S. I am sure I am not the only one in a situation like that. Even my father recently asked me about how he can avoid downloading service pack 2 repeatedly whenever he has forced to reinstall windows due to picking up a virus from the work LAN. To be honest, it is just a pain even with high speed Internet. Even if you have a separate CD containing SP2 to add in later, it is still a slow and painful addition after you have already jumped through the necessary hoops to get XP up and running.
