Slipstream Official Release?
Posted 01 November 2009 - 09:19 AM
First of all congratulations (and parabéns ) to cristiano and guitar_mike (and everyone else involved) for pulling off an Autopatcher Official Release!
Do you think it is possible to create a slipstreamed Official Release using nLite just by copying all the exes to a folder and pointing nLite to it?
I tried adding all to nlite and only got one complain that "windows-kb890830-v3.0.exe is not a regular hotfix. It is a Tool..."
Do you guys think this is a good idea? Won't it get confused to have both IE7 and IE8 (as an example)?

I will add that slipstreaming is beneficial and can limit the effort of updating a given service pack, there have been many
updates since the release of service pack 3 for Windows XP so if you can install them into an updated disc - this is a good
thing in my view, but opinions regarding the tools used to achieve this are wide, as I'm sure you know.
There is another very comprehensive guide that goes into great detail about this very subject, if you want more reading, well...
-> MSFN's Unattended Windows - the essentials are here in this guide though it is slowly becoming outdated.

I really want to do a clean install.
I just don't have a lot of time available to investigate and was hoping there was an easy solution...
I will post on this topic when I figure out how to deal with those odd packages. I think the MSFN Unattended link you suggested is a good starting point!

All the programs I've seen offer for me what I want / need - slipstream updates into my install disc, in addition, they all seem to
offer the additional features I am not very interested in utilizing - driver or software application integration, OS tweaks etc. I do
plan on experimenting with these additional features once I have time - I just haven't gotten around to it.

Getting a bit off-topic, but if anyone is interested this is what I currently use for integration:
