    Reinstall fresh copy of XP plus existing patches

    My XP machine is 4 years old now and getting slow. Rather than do a re-install and clean up I am getting a new Win 7 machine; but after I have migrated I would like to do the clean up on my old machine and keep it as a legacy XP machine, file server and general test bed.

    My question is can I utilise the updates from my old machine, by copying them to a CD/DVD, to save downloading them again with Microsoft Update after I have reinstalled Win-XP from my original installation CD? Or is there a technique where I can make a new install CD from the original but including all the required updates and then install from that to get a fully patched SP3 version?
