Unattended XPCD
   


Step 2 - Slipstreaming the Latest Service Pack
Submitted by Unknown

As with the making of the local source in Step 1, this step also has two ways of accomplishing the goal.

The two methods are the Manual way, and the Automated way using nLite.


» The Automated Way

  • Start up nLite. Just keep clicking next till you get to this screen:

    Unattended XPCD

  • Click the Browse button, and select the folder you copied your source to in Step 1. I'll be using C:\XPCD

  • After selecting the folder click till you get to this screen:

    Unattended XPCD

  • Click the Select button, and navigate to your download of the network service pack file, and click Open.

  • A couple boxes should come open with progress bars.

    Unattended XPCD

    The above is for the extracting of the service pack, and the below for the integration of the service pack.

    Unattended XPCD

    Just wait untill they all close and you're back at the nLite screen. If you receive this box:

    Unattended XPCD

    feel free to click OK.

  • Back in nLite, the area just above where you clicked Select, should now reveal your Operating System and what service pack level it is at.

  • Exit out of nLite, and continue to Step 3.


» The Manual Way


This way is going to walk you through the steps necessary, as if you didn't have nLite and wanted to type in the commands necessary.
  • Click Start, and select Run. If you don't see it on the start menu, simply press <WINDOWSKEY><R>

    Unattended XPCD

  • Now click within the box where it says your filename, and type:
    -s:C:\XPCD 

    Where C:\XPCD is the path to your Operating System local source. Note however, I did NOT point it to the I386 directory. It MUST be the directory I386 is within.

  • You should see these boxes appear on screen:

  • Click OK on the final box, and continue to Step 3.
