How to integrate/slipstream "AutoPatcher" into  WINDOWS XP SP2 ?

Hello Experts,

I have Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack - 2 integrated. I have slipstreamed official SP-2 to orignal Windows XP CD. I have already tried (this new windows xp sp-2 activated) it by installing on different systems successfully. Its 100% working.

Now I have downloaded an application named "AutoPacher for Windows XP SP2 FEB2006 FULL BETA" from http://www.autopatcher.com(http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=432780)

My question is :
How can I integrate/slipstream all patches/updates/hotfixes/utilities/softwares included in "AutoPatcher" application to my "Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack-2" cd.

So that I don't need to install "AutoPatcher" after installing Windows XP SP2 everytime. Please dont advise for images/norton ghost etc or this kind of solution.

I want to make full-featured CD of WINDOWS XP SP2 with AUTOPATCHER integrated for my personal use only. How can I do so. Please give full details.

I've never done it, but I would suggest you look into AutoStreamer - same folks as AutoPatcher - and then this howto:


Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts
Nlite claims that it can do this:


Usually I just have my XP SP2 CD and make an autopatcher CD every three months just to keep up with the latest updates. I can definitely see the reason why you'd want them on one CD, though.


Thanx Silly Burrito ...but

Can you explain the whole procedure with instructions/directions that how use "AutoPatcher's" full updates/hotfixes/tweaks/addons etc.

I tried but got so many errors when nLite tries to finilaize the cd/iso i.e. in last step.

ooh hoo
