    xp sp2 sliptream (xp)

    Good morning,

    I discovered the slipstreaming process on the net but still have one question to ask. One can copy ones favourite programs from the slipstreamed CD to the HD. It is said all in $oem$/$1 will be copied to c:
    Does one have to write a batch file for this one to or does windows always copies the content of that folder to c: ?
    For the moment I install some applications directly from CD via the RunOnceEx.cmd. I just would like to copy applications folders without installing them immediately.

    Who is able to enlighten me concerning the subject ?

    It is (basically) correct.

    %oem% folder holds all supplemental folders and files for an automated or customized Windows installation
    %oem%$1 folder represents the root of the drive on which you installed Windows (default is C: , but if you decide to install Windows to another drive, it can be, say, F: )
    %oem%C - represents the root of C drive, D - the root of D drive, ets.
    %oem%%% - represents Windows folder (default C:WINDOWS)

    I hope you understood the principle. If you want to copy Winzip90.exe to C:installwinzip folder, copy it to %oem%$1installwinzip folder.

    To make customizing installation easier, use Setup Manager:

    1. Extract Setup Manager(Setupmgr.*) from SupportToolsDeploy.Cab on your Windows XP CD (or download it from Microsoft).
    2. Run Setupmgr.exe
    3. Setup Manager will create an answer file for your installation (see Customizing Unattended Installations for details).
    4. Create a directory for your modified Windows XP install. For example, C:NEWXP
    5. Copy your original Windows XP CD into this directory preserving the directory structure of the CD.
    6. Copy the answer file created by Setup Manager to C:NEWXP.
    7. Create CNEWXP%oem%$1 folder, all subfoloders and copy all programs you want to be on your installation. (Remember that the size of CD is limited!)
    8. Modify autorun.inf to run your unattended setup of Windows XP and not the default (adding /Unattend parameter and the correct file name after open=setup.exe).
    9. Burn bootable CD.

    You can also add service pack, hotfixes and drivers specific to your computer to your CD. For step-by-step instructions, see
    Advanced Guides: Unattended Windows 2000/XP Installations

    Good morning,

    ok thats great. So I don't need a special bat file for the autocopy to the HD.
    When I zip the files of my favourite applications I am getting value for my money.
    Seem that it is not possible with office and sp1- 2-3. At least not with the retail version. That's a shame.

    Thank you for the assistance,

    It is possible. You can customize your Microsoft Office Installation Point (embedding SR-1, SP-2, SP-3 and hotfixes) and burn it to CD also. You can also install other programs with Office installation. If you want just copy some files to the hard drive, you must use an executable file to copy files (it is better to use ROBOCOPY or XXCOPY for this job). For details how to customize your Installation Point, see Help for Custom Installation Wizard in Resource Kit for your version of Microsoft Office.

    If you would like a great guide and some help automating the process go to http://www.msfn.org/articles.php?act...showarticle=49 and use "nlite". The guide will show you how to slipstream a service pack and put in all your drivers as well as favorite programs (like perfectdisk, or whatever) on the Windows install disc. What you eventually end up with is a personal (unattended if you like) restore disc for fresh installations. <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>
