  1. Batch hotfix downloading

    yea, the '-P' command will work with the http://win-x.co.cc/files/UDC-04.12.11.zip list. it's just a matter of figuring out what is/isn't in the list compared to the hf-fl_xxx.zip files above as well as what directory (HF, HFCABS, etc) they each need to go. here's to hoping...
  2. Batch hotfix downloading

    using the hf-dl_xxx.bat files (any of them), the files downloaded don't drop the file into any of the HF* folders (with or without the wget.ini). i've tried the following: If -O WindowsXP-KB950762-x86-ENU.exe is omitted, the file goes into the HF folder as confirmation.aspx@familyid=36b14a81-5979-4e38-9ba3-ed83dfc17adf. the same occurs if using the hfpicker.xls and copying from column M. If wget.ini is in place the confirmation.aspx@familyid=36b14a81-5979-4e38-9ba3-ed83dfc17adf file is removed with the following: additionally if the '-O' switch is used, the file goes into a download retry loop which fails after a bit. It seems there may be a conflict with the '-O' and '-P' switches for wget. does anyone have any solutions other than using mimo's update list or the one bphlpt posted from http://win-x.co.cc/updates.html? i'm used to manual but thought i'd give this one a go and i'm bumping my head on this one. i'd like to see it work to download into the HFSLIP folders...
  3. HFSLIP - Test releases

    Thanks! I appreciate it. tf
  4. Windows Updates

    Yea, that's what I was trying to say in this post http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...st&p=819917 I left it in my updates because http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/MS08-037.mspx didn't have any prior bulletins issued for XPsp3. tf
  5. HFSLIP - Test releases

    Does hfslip-1.7.9_beta_d indicated we no longer need 956391_fix.reg in the HFSVCPACK folder? I think yes, considering the lines displayed in the cmd look to contain what the reg file has but just want to confirm. (Sorry if it's apparent what the answer is, it's late and I'm a bit slow eyed.) Thanks. tf
  6. Windows Updates

    FWIW, I just finished evaluating a Windows XP SP2 machine (not slipstreamed) which hadn't been upgraded in about a year. Checking Windows Update showed 893803, 950760 and 951748 as being needed (plus a few others). Instead of getting all the updates, I went ahead and upgraded the machine to SP3. I checked Windows Update and 893803, 950760 and 951748 weren't offered. I tried installing 951748 against SP3 too and it installed without issue. It seems to me this one should probably be included in a slipstream process regardless of what WUA and MBSA 2.1 indicate (or don't indicate as the case may be). tf
  7. Windows Updates

    These are my results as well. There are no bulletins replaced for WinXPsp3 regarding 950760 & 951748. 893803 doesn't list Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3). I wonder if this has anything to do with it. Or, it might be a bug in the WUA (which would affect MBSA 2.1 as well). Is your slipstreamed xpsp3 using an RTM or VLK version? tf
  8. Windows Updates

    thanks tommyp, i agree pita and that makes sense enough to me! Per, 893803: Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Service Pack 3; Windows 2000 Service Pack 4; Windows Server 2003; Windows XP; Windows XP Service Pack 1; Windows XP Service Pack 2 It doesn't list XPsp3 though...
  9. Windows Updates

    911564 is included in XP SP3 via 946480 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946480/). 946480 is the List of fixes that are included in Windows XP Service Pack 3. tf
  10. Windows Updates

    I believe this one 'optional' based upon the info from http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/ms08-062.mspx as it only affects users running IIS: I am running one of the platforms that are listed in the affected software table. Why am I not being offered the update? The update will only be offered to systems on which the affected component is installed. Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP systems that do not have Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) installed are not affected and will not receive this update. Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 systems that do not have both IIS and Internet printing installed are not affected and will not receive this update. Would it be a good idea to include a note indicating this is optional unless IIS is installed? On a side note: with SP3 slipstreamed (before using HFSLIP), 951748 is not displayed via MBSA 2.1 or Windows Update. I've searched for a reason why but cannot for the life of me see why this isn't being included via MBSA 2.1 or Windows Update. I show adf.sys being updated later from 956803 but dnsapi.dll(a), mswsock.dll(a), tcpip.sys(B) and tcpip6.sys(B) all show as version 5.1.2600.5512 and dated 4/13/08 for (B) and 4/14/08 for (a) (see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951748). Based upon the list by FDV and TommyP, I would expect MBSA 2.1 or Windows Update should be offering 951748 but neither one appears to do so.
  11. Windows Updates

    The 958127 is referencing a link which doesn't exist. I believe it should be 958215 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958215) The 927177 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927177) refers to "How to uninstall Internet Explorer 7". I believe the correct link should be to 940767 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940767) "Description of the Windows Internet Explorer 7 Installation and Availability Update" tf
  12. Windows Updates

    I think the 954459 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954459) should point to 955969 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/955969) in the list. Also I believe 955839 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/955839) replaces 951072 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951072). 955839 is the December 2008 cumulative time zone update for Microsoft Windows operating systems. tf
  13. Is that right: XPsp2 hasn't been updated since 4/8/2008 (long time)? On http://www.windowsupdatesdownloader.com/UpdateLists.aspx is windows-xp-x86-enu.ulz for XPsp3 (it's dated 11/12/2008)? It appears requests have been made to have the file named specifically as SP3 so I can't say for sure if it's SP3 or not. Not the only ones with confusion: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=126605 http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=121015 http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=123285 I agree: Windows Home Server would be a nice addition too! I like to build an updated slipstreamed with all hotfixes and security updates from time to time. It appears all the XPsp2 and XPsp3 lists haven't been updated for some time. last updated 8/12/2008 - http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...6450&st=380 last updated 5/25/2008 - http://users.telenet.be/tc76/winup/_winxpsp2.html last updated 6/11/2008 - http://users.telenet.be/tc76/winup/_winxpsp3.html last updated 8/15/2008 - http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=74840 (soon to be de-stickied for lack of update from post by tommyp) I just stumbled across this: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=124566 I'm reviewing it now and hope it provides more info. (Am I confusing multiple ways of slipstreaming the patches and hotfixes by looking at all those links above?) EDIT: SWEET! http://www.vorck.com/windows/hotfixes_xp.html tommyp has an updated list for XPsp3! Combined with http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=126258 and new list could be compiled and used with WUD (if you like). I like HFSLIP so I'll be bulk downloading and using HFSLIP but am going to test WUD (by building my own list if I have time). tf
  14. how do I add Ubuntu 7.10 to the bootmenu

    I was just looking at this link before seeing your post. Check this out and let me know if it works: http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1. (I am working on the same project myself...albeit slowly. I just finished an HFSLIP of updates up to 12/02, nLite for a few extras and installed XP. All good except for the sound card drivers...need kb888111 which I have from ASUS but it's older than one posted on Lenova and IBM sites...weird.) tf
