  1. Hi!

    This is my first post and I did a search but couldn't find the answer (although I'm sure there is one!).

    I need to reinstall XP on a relative computer, we have the original XP INstall disc and the SP2 update disc.

    They only have dialup internet so is there a way I can get all the security updates etc from SP2 through to Present and create a CD/DVD beforehand so we're not waiting days to download all the updates via dial-up when I go to re-install?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Yes, you can create a slipstreamed disk that contains everything you need.

    See HERE for instructions, or you could use the Autostreamer programme from HERE.

    I've had problems in the past with creating slipstreamed disks. They will install fine, but there will be multiple error messages upon startup.

    I usually just take the computer I'm working on to my house (9mbps cable) and get all the updates there.

    Thanks Howard, I shall head over now and see about the creating a slipstream disk.

    fordfox: My only problem is the computer I need to install XP on again is a relatives PC in the next state.

    Thanks again

    Can also go to, Download - Windows product family - Windows XP in drop down. All Updates, including SP2 can be downloaded w/o automatic update installation. Download with highspeed and burn to CD. It's how I update my folks comp. Haven't looked in a while some may be cummulative.
