Remember how much fun it used to be when you wanted to slipstream a SP into a your Windows CD? Not exactly the good ‘ol days, huh?
Since that article, I have managed to locate software that has made the whole process a whole lot easier:
Flexbeta Slipstreamer- One of the better options for slipstreaming your service packs into a Windows install.
Xp Slipstreamer- While I have not used this option myself, I have heard good things about it over time.
And now thanks to a discovery by Pat and Robert
nLite, the Windows Installation Customizer– What makes this app different? It allows you to create ‘ready to go’ discs for custom Windows installs with some very impressive options.
Use this program to integrate your choice of drivers, hotfixes, SPs and even opt-out of default Microsoft software installations such as Outlook Express and MSN Explorer. Even setup automated Windows installations, therefore never again having to enter your product key!
What about OS support? Thus far, it works with Windows 2000, XP x86/x64 and 2003 x86/x64. The only thing to be aware of is that to use the program, you will need the .NET framework.
