Recently i posted this question. How do I slipstream Toshiba Recovery Disk (XP Home) with SP2, Windows Updates and other programs? I received a good reply however this does not solve my problem.

The reply showed this link: http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sp2_slipstream.asp

The link recommends using Windows XP CD-ROM. Toshiba has the WP Home program mixed with its own applications and drivers. so how can it be done? I do not have a pure Windows XP CD-ROM.

So how do i use the Toshiba Disk to slipstream Windows XP. with SP2 and updates?

Basiclly the procedure for Slipstreaming is to

1) copy all the files onto your pc somewhere.
2) Execute the service packs using a special key to update a windows share
3) burn the files back onto a bootable disk.

Nothing more. As for slipstreaming the other stuff drivers can be done but you need to locate all the files etc and copy them into folders. As for apps you can put them onto the CD and install them once booted up.

http://www.petri.co.il/windows_2000_xp_sp_slipstreaming.htm has ifnromation on the Slipstreaming Process for SP2.
http://www.maximumpc.com/2005/01/how_to_slipstre.html will show you how to add drivers etc for RAID and other stuff.

My advice is to grab a free copy of Nlite ( http://www.nliteos.com/ is a free utility which is exelent for stuff like this. )

It will allow you customise the installation selecting the defaults you want the product key the network settings languges the whole lot right down to removing stuff like Media Platyer and Internet Explorer and how you want the start menu setup. It also has options for Slipstreaming Service Packs ( You tell it where the EXE is and it does it ) and adding drivers ( give the locations of the INF files ) it will then make the burning process simple by creating an ISO which will allow you burn straight to CD.

Normally it will be an OEM disk.

If it has a I386 folder on it then it should be the Windows Installation Disk. N-Lite will tell you if its a valid install image when you tell it where to look for the files.

cityman you would be fine using that other program you are worrying about something that would not affect what you are trying to do.  Just proceed as you were going to and it will all work out

i cannot believe it... the toshiba oem disk has crc errors (cylic redundancy check); i tried to repair it with a freeward- CDCheck. it was not too successful; so i ordered a new CD from the company. so in about 10 days i will receive it.
