Step 1 - Gathering the Needed Parts and Pieces
There are a few essential items necessary to successfully create the slipstreamed CD. You will need:
The original Windows 2003 Server installation CD ROM.
Windows 2003 Server Service Pack 1 - It will be necessary to either download SP1 or obtain it on CD. To slipstream, you need the full SP1 (Network Installation).
Step 2 - Building Directories
The first step is to build a directory structure to hold the files that will be used in the CD creation process. It's a simple structure, requiring nothing more than a few folders. It doesn't matter what names you use for your folders or where you locate them on your hard drive, but most users find drive C the easiest. I created the folders shown below, located on Drive C. Create whatever folders you are comfortable with or use the ones below if you want to copy and paste commands later in the tutorial.
Step 3 - Copying and Extracting Files
The first step is to insert the Windows 2003 Server CD and copy the entire contents into the WIN51IB.SP1 folder or the equivalent folder in your structure.
The second step is to navigate to where you downloaded the Service Pack 1 file. If you downloaded SP1 from Microsoft it should be named WindowsServer2003-KB889101-SP1-x86-ENU.exe.
Step 4 - Updating The Windows Share
Apply the Service Pack 1 to Windows Server 2003 in the WIN51IB.SP1 folder that were copied in the first step.
Step5 - HF1.CMD and hivesft.cmd
My current batches script are located here
What does HF1.cmd: it integrates each HF KB######.exe /integrate:%source%
Why do you use GDR and not QFE? - (I read the MS KB, but it was no clearly answer for me)
Microsoft takes the decision for me.
This method uses update_SP1GDR.inf and binaries located in KB######\sp1gdr to update the source.
It also call a 2nd batch hivesft.cmd for extracting from update_SPxGDR.INF infos to later inject in HIVExxx.INF.
Cannot be used to integrate MSFT bloat (WMP, Messenger, .NET framework), only WindowsServer2003-KB######-x86-enu.exe HFs.
Step6 - HFINT.cmd
Step7 - HIVEsft.cmd
Step 8 - ???.cmd
