XPhome and sp2

Discussions, problem solving, and tips and trick for operating systems go here. Windows, Mac, and Linux are ok. If you want to fight or put down an OS go to The Hundred Year War Forum. It will not be tolerated here. Make sure to post what OS is being discussed in the title of your post.

I agree! I slipstreamed all my copies of XP. It's so simple, and much quicker to reinstall the OS if it crashes, and no more downloading updates!

True, but slipstreaming still speeds things up.........;)
If you have a lot of energy you can always slipstream the updates as well, but then you'd constantly be making new install CD's................ :twisted:

Yeah! I slipstreamed all the latest updates about 6 months ago. So, on a reinstall, I use the slipstreamed CD, then update all the newest updates, which doesn't take long.
Maybe around Christmas when I don't have anything to do, I'll update my slipstream. Or, maybe I'll have another eggnog with scotch.
