it means to take a normal windows install cd,and to combine it with sp2 on a seperate cd,so that when it is installed onto a new machine it loads on sp2 as well.

The school holidays have started. Put a sign up in your window for a ten-year old to assemble the desks for you in exchange for an IDE cable - you're bound to get a volunteer. ;-) :D

Hi Beetle. Extract from a Fred Langa newsletter. Looks good, though I have yet to try it.

"There's not a lot that can be done about that, but you can achieve a huge time savings on future installations and reinstallations of XP by integrating SP2's files with those of your original XP setup CD. Your hybrid install CD will work exactly as the original one did, even to the point of using the same 25-character Product Key, but it will be completely up to date with all patches and updates, up to and including SP2. Any system you set up with the hybrid CD will be pre-patched to current levels, in one step. You'll be totally up to date from the start, rather than facing maybe an hour or more of additional downloads to bring the new installation or reinstallation to SP2 levels.

Creating a new hybrid installation CD is surprisingly easy--a point and click exercise with only a few geeky parts. And it works very well. In fact, in most ways, this method of pre-patching an installation CD is basically the same process software vendors use to produce an updated version of their installation software; indeed, starting this fall, Microsoft will offer for sale fully prepatched versions of XP on CD. But you don't have to wait: You can create your own totally legitimate prepatched copy of XP on CD today.

Before you begin, you'll need the following:

1) A legitimate XP setup CD (almost any variation will work: Pro or Home; retail or OEM; full install CD or upgrade CD; etc.)

2) A CD burner, blank CD, and software capable of creating a bootable CD (eg. Nero, Roxio, etc.)

3) About a gigabyte of free space on your hard drive for temporary file storage. (This space can be recovered after you've made your new CD.)

>>>Metla, today my friend received the printer that you sent him. He is very happy. THANKS. He is a man of few words, so if he has not said too much to you, don't take it in a bad way. By the way, I learned that he won two or three medals, at least one gold, in a NZ ParaOlympics. That was a long time ago and he no longer has those medals - a friend of mine thinks he had to sell them since he was out of work.

For those of you who do not recall, Metla offered to send my friend a printer, free of charge. My friend is unemployed and has been disabled from birth.

So Metla, as Beetle knows, you may be a hard hitter at times on PF1 but you are a softie as well. Cheers and keep that halo polished. ;)

Is "Slipstreaming" XP legal?

> Is "Slipstreaming" XP legal?

As long as the O/S C/D used is not a "Pirate", and the created C/D was not used to install Pirate/Unlicensed copies.

Why would it not be?

Thats good enough for me,i would rather have a simple thanks then a big fluster.
