If you are sick of having to go through the process of updating your Windows install to Service pack 2 each and every time, then you need to look at the following closely. A process called slipstreaming can truly make your life a whole lot easier if you know what your are doing. To make this happen however, the process is beyond most people as it requires a lengthy tutorial and borders being a real pain in the butt. Today, this the process has been made a whole lot easier thanks to a piece of software known as Autostreamer.
Having the correct tools is pretty basic, you just need to make sure you have a copy of Windows XP and the Service pack itself. Short of that, you just need to follow the prompts and allow the software to do the ‘heavy lifting’ for you. Once the provided wizard is done, you should find that you are ready to rock and roll with a CD that has Windows bundled with SP2 and it only took you a few minutes.
“So, is this for XP only?” Not at all. You can use this with Windows 2K, XP Home and Pro as well as with Windows 2003 products. If you have a version of Windows falling into one of those groups and the appropriate SP to go with it, then Autostreamer can most certainly make life easier for you.
