Hey Kurt,

How do you come up with your magical lists of which hotfixes to slipstream, which ones to RunOnce, which ones to delete, and most importantly what order you run them in? How do you know what changes to make each month?

I'm trying to achieve the same thing for manually maintaining a RIS install share of XP x86, and I've googled my bum off here, but can't find anything even close to the comprehensive work of genius that is Kurt's UpdatePrep.bat (and the RunX_W2Ksp5.bat's)! Am I missing something? Is there some MS newsletter that I should be subscribing to?

I have a VM with just SP5 slipstreamed, so after Patch Tuesday I point it at Windows update and see what shows up. I then compare the list with the preceding month's results and double check against that month's security advisory.

As to which ones to slipsteam and which go at runonce, that's just trial and error.

There is a notification service available: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/security/dd252948.aspx

The XP x64 guide would probably be a better one to base XP x86 off, the main change of note is that TimeOut doesn't exist in 32-bit XP, you'll have to use the ping commands used in this W2K guide.

I had a feeling you might be doing something like that - nice to get the confirmation that it is in fact the way forward :) I have my starting point ready to go now - a fresh XP x86 SP3 source on my WDS server with integrated textmode drivers for the VMware scsi controller (pretty sweet). I can already see after the first pass of Windows update on my guinea pig that your XP x64 list will indeed come in handy!

Well that's enough of that for now, I think I've gone far enough off topic for one day...

Thanks for the tip! (and of course for these guides! I've been using them for a while now, for my Win2K machine at home and my XP x64 machine at work ;))

I am done with fire up nLite and everything went all right, but now I do not understand anything from this part of the guide:

"Installation

.

.

.

.

Note that because %Source% does not work with Windows 2000..."

What to do with those "Run1_W2Ksp5.bat", "Run2_W2Ksp5.bat", "Run3_W2Ksp5.bat" files? From where to run these? How do I get integrated DirectX, Media Player, Net2.0 sp2, etc? Could someone explain it with more details?

Thank you!

Szarosmaci, everything after the header Installation is additional information for users who want to do more than just the basics.

The section of the guide you quoted describes how the process works for those that are interested, you don't actually have to do anything with regard to it.

Hi,

The file w2ksp51.7z.001 is broken on both sites (mediafire and e-snips). Also the tracker from ryanvm doesn't exists anymore.

I've just test downloaded w2ksp51.7z.001 from both sites, using a different PC than the one which has the account cookies (IE8 for Mediafire and Seamonkey 1.1.18 for eSnips), worked fine for me.

Perhaps you should try a different browser or computer as it would appear that something (cookies, security software) is blocking your attempts currently.

Yes RyanVM's tracker is down, apparently he is trying to diagnose server problems with the forums at the moment.

Hopefully this month's update will be available over the weekend, the current hotfix archive has been uploaded but I'm still waiting for Silent .NET Maker synthesized to be updated so I can build the .Net installers.

Effing brilliant! After months of related Googling, I think this may be the resource/guide that finally puts me over the top, both in terms of a comprehensive Win2K installation that I can have confidence in and using nLite to make it jump through the hoops I want... Not that I expect the first time to be the charm: I'm sure I'll be back with questions shortly, but this is great to find nonetheless.
