KB936357 - This update is high priority on hardware with Intel CPUs, but not for AMD or other processors. I no longer have an AMD machine to verify this, but it was true as of 2008/06/06 when I had AMD hardware.

KB971029 - Was initially offered as an optional update on Windows Update on 2011/02/08. I don't know when it got bumped up to high priority status.

KB2345886 - Install KB968389 first, then you will see this update on the Windows Update site (just like KB970430 ;)).

I could do this all day, but Microsoft is releasing more updates in a few hours.

Finally I get it. It was my mistake all the time. When I said I checked Windows Update, I did so only once.
I didn't realize that KB2345886 and KB970430 two updates are offered at the second check.

OK, both KB2345886 and KB970430 are high-priority updates, and require KB968389 (also high-priority) to be installed first.

Thank you for this impressive and well thought out guide.

I have a few questions. None of this is criticism, I'm asking honest questions because I want to learn the best way to make my CD/DVD.

1) Is the directory structure contained in your Config_XP-64_date.7z file supposed to overlay the contents copied from one's XP x64 CD or is it just something to keep the files organized before slipstreaming?

2) When I was integrating SP2 using nlite, I got a warning dialog about existing hotfixes that needed to be removed before applying the service pack. Is this normal? My XP x64 source was copied directly from a factory pressed CD. Any hotfixes present must have been put there by Microsoft.

3) Your "Internet Explorer 8 subgroup" has an old version of 5eraph's Internet Explorer 8 AddOn from 2009_03 along with several updates. I assume that the latest version of 5eraph's Internet Explorer 8 AddOn already has those updates included. Can I just use that instead, or is there some specific reason you're using the older version?

4) Regarding DirectX... I see that you're using the directx_Jun2010_redist.exe in RunOnce. code65536 built addon packs for DirectX (later maintained by Yumeyao) that purport to be equivalent, yet quite smaller. Is there some advantage to or benefit from using the redist version that I'm not considering? http://www.ryanvm.ne...opic.php?t=8136

5) Regarding WMP11... There's a comment near the end of this thread by user ricktendo64 about KB970159 and the boooggy's WMP11 slipstreaming tool. What is he talking about?... http://www.ryanvm.ne...amer&start=1050

Both, after slipsteaming one should copy the Run*_XP-64.bat files and the AddOns & RunOnce folders to the nLite working directory as indicated in step 9 of the guide.

2) When I was integrating SP2 using nlite, I got a warning dialog about existing hotfixes that needed to be removed before applying the service pack. Is this normal? My XP x64 source was copied directly from a factory pressed CD. Any hotfixes present must have been put there by Microsoft.

No it is not normal, are you sure that your CD isn't SP2 already? Check the root directory of the CD, if it has WIN51AP.SP2 then the disk is Service Pack 2.

3) Your "Internet Explorer 8 subgroup" has an old version of 5eraph's Internet Explorer 8 AddOn from 2009_03 along with several updates. I assume that the latest version of 5eraph's Internet Explorer 8 AddOn already has those updates included. Can I just use that instead, or is there some specific reason you're using the older version?

Yes you can use the updated version if you like, in fact you can use 5eraph's pack and skip the vast majority of the Hotfixes, needing only DirectX, WMP11 and .Net related ones.

4) Regarding DirectX... I see that you're using the directx_Jun2010_redist.exe in RunOnce. code65536 built addon packs for DirectX (later maintained by Yumeyao) that purport to be equivalent, yet quite smaller. Is there some advantage to or benefit from using the redist version that I'm not considering? http://www.ryanvm.ne...opic.php?t=8136

You can try it, but I haven't tested it. Considering I've never heard of an x64 capable computer that only has a CD rather than a DVD drive I've never been worried about the size of the various installers.

5) Regarding WMP11... There's a comment near the end of this thread by user ricktendo64 about KB970159 and the boooggy's WMP11 slipstreaming tool. What is he talking about?... http://www.ryanvm.ne...amer&start=1050

Googling it, it seems to be similar to the old and tempermental Media Transfer Protocol, as it's not a high priority download it's not included in the update list.

The volume label on the CD is "AX2PXFPP_EN"

The root of the CD only has "WIN51" and "WIN51AP"

The \AMD64\SVCPACK directory contains 4 files...

BRANCHES.INF
HFINT.DAT
KB911164.CAT
KB911164.EXE

In this thread...
http://www.msfn.org/...ws-xp-sp2c-oem/
...A user says this about KB911164...

"That's a non-public hotfix for IE6 which updates the way plug-ins are loaded ("Click here to activate this control") and maybe other things. Just remove it and slipstream the latest cumulative update, which supersedes it."

Strange, my SP1 disk (which is really RtM, XP x64 and Server 2003 x64 were released when Server 2003 32-bit had already received SP1) has a volume label of ARMPXOEM_EN

Also there is no SVCpack directory on a default SP1 (or SP2) disk, did you buy an OEM disk yourself (in a plastic DVD style case) or was it supplied with your computer?

This page lists the known Windows XP CD labels:
http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=342

According to the page "AX2PXFPP_EN" is the Retail version of Windows XP Professional x64, without SP2.
"ARMPXOEM_EN" is the OEM version.

@krick:
It seems that your disc is slipstreamed by someone else. The original disc shouldn't have the \AMD64\SVCPACK directory.

One of my co-workers picked it up in his college bookstore many years ago, but never got around to installing it. He gave it to me after I mentioned in passing that I was looking for a copy of XP x64 but couldn't find one.

The part number on the CD is E85-03210.
The printing on the disc says...

June 2006
Systems
Student Media / Work At Home Media



I found more information posted in 2007 about KB911164 in a thread about HFSLIP...

http://www.msfn.org/...an-source-flag/

The newer SP2 disks install a non-public IE6 update from SVCPACK. The existence of the SVCPACK folder causes HFSLIP to trigger the warning.

The reason I haven't come up with a solution for that yet is because, if that update is not installed (which happens after running HFSLIP) and you don't include the latest cumulative update for IE6, you get tons of errors reported in setuperr.log. So I don't want to simply ignore the existence of the SVCPACK folder as a whole. Instead, the warning message needs to be different.

I guess you may as well give it a try as is, if Microsoft has done their job right the Service Pack should be able to correctly remove those hotfixes.

I'm seeing something strange and I think the WMP11 slipstream might be the cause.

I have a CD image that I made by slipstreaming SP2, and then using the WMP11 slipstreamer to integrate WMP11. No other changes. This installs fine.

However, if I take the same image, and add 5eraph's XP Pro x64 post SP2 update pack and Internet Explorer 8 AddOn, then I get a bunch (6) errors during the install about unsigned drivers. The error log is attached. I had to change the extension because it wouldn't let me attach a ".log" file.

Just to to be sure, I also made an image with SP2 and 5eraph's XP Pro x64 post SP2 update pack. No WMP11, and no IE8. This also installed fine.

When I slipstreamed WMP11 using the tool, I have no idea what the different options are so I chose the "Tweaked" wmp11 output because that's what you chose in your screenshot. I've attached a screenshot of the settings I chose.

Any thoughts?

That's normal behaviour or at least it happens on my system as well, don't worry about it.

As far as I can tell it causes no problems on a running system or at least I haven't heard of any.

If you're concerned you can always use the WMP11 silent install option.

They're not drivers. They're modified WMP11 files. They become unsigned when the WMP11 Slipstreamer modifies them for the Tweaked option. If you don't want the errors then choose the "Vanilla (same as original installer with WGA)" option. ;)

Thanks. It's working as expected now.

My next question is about the .Net groups. I want to be sure about what you mean by "cumulative".

Given the three groups, A, B, and C below...

If I want to include .NET 3.5, do I need all the files from group A and group B, or just the ones from group B.

Similarly, if I want to include .NET 4.0, do I need the files from groups A, B and C, or just the ones from group C.

Thanks. That answers my question.

However, what you're actually describing is "incremental". As in...

"A service pack can be incremental, which means it only contains the updates that were not present in the previous service packs or, it can be cumulative, which means it includes the contents of all its predecessors."

For example, if dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe was cumulative, it would contain .NET 2.0 and .NET 3.5.

XP Service pack 2 is cumulative. If I want to slipstream SP2, I don't need to slipstream SP1 first.

It would be better if they use simpler language like "You also need the .NET 2.0 and .NET 3.5 updates above."
avoiding the term "incremental" or "cumulative".

By the way, .NET 3.5 does include .NET 3.0 and .NET 2.0, so you can call it cumulative. But .NET 4.0 is not, and I personally avoid using .NET 4.0 apps.

Thanks Explorer09, someone double checking is always helpful, especially on things that don't show up on the monthly security bulletin such as "Note: 2661254 + 2728973 (rvkroots.exe) replaces 2718704. 2661254 is not a high-priority update AFAIK."

I've decided from now on to leave in the batch files all my hardware specific driver commands but comment them all out as well as some other non-freeware applications I install.

September updates

Deletion:
RunOnce\WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB2695962-x64-ENU.exe

Replace:
# . RunOnce\install_flash_player_11_active_x.exe .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 9,575,112 . Updated 21 August

Addition:
@ . . . RunOnce\WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB2736233-x64-ENU.exe . 685,592 . ActiveX Kill-Bits Cumulative


Obviously one of those almost mythical months with no Microsoft security updates (the ActiveX Kill-Bits target Cisco software). On the supported application front, the batch files will now remove AVG security toolbar (for I.E.) and the obsolete versions of the Visual C++ runtimes installed by QuickTime Alternative Lite and Avast Anti-Virus.

The recommended method for installing Microsoft Office 2007 has been changed with instructions and download links in the file Misc\Office2007.html (but the old method will still work). Also the "Small Business" version is now supported along with the previously supported "Home and Student", however support for other versions will require the help of you dear reader.

Critical Internet Explorer update

Deletion:
Hotfix\904-IE8-WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB2722913-x64-ENU.exe

Replace:
# . RunOnce\install_flash_player_11_active_x.exe .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 9,573,296 . Updated 18 September

Addition:
# . Hotfix\904-IE8-WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB2744842-x64-ENU.exe 43,867,192 . MS12-063 - Cumulative Security Update


Added support for Microsoft's Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit with all EMET tested applications being protected (All.xml applied) and the Oracle VirtualBox extension pack (but it won't show as installed until you create your first VM).

Speaking of VirtualBox, I got an email stating that my long running problems had finally been fixed with 4.1.22 and to reopen the bug ticket if I was still having problems. Having tried 4.1.20 and having it still hang all the time I didn't hold out much hope but 4.1.22 seems OK. I was going to report that the problem had been fixed but now Oracle won't let me login to my account, oh well.

None the less I'll be sticking with 3.0.14 as they started Vista-fying it with the 3.1.x series, by which I mean the settings I change when doing testing are 2 clicks away in VirtualBox 3.0.14 but 5 clicks away in later versions.

Explorer09, yep, had the VM running as I headed out the door this morning.

EDIT: I'd advise caution before installing Microsoft's EMET as 7-Zip and Skype didn't work for me after installing EMET. I did a survey of all the EMET supported applications in the guide and found that WinRAR and Internet Explorer (64-bit only, 32-bit OK) didn't work either. I've added commands to resolve these issues but can't say with any confidence that there won't be others.

It is not critical to replace KB2731847 & KB2705219 as only the digital certificate changed and a system will still run correctly (for now) with the older versions, however it could be an issue in the future.
