Slipstreaming SP2 for XP.

I've just made a new XP Pro CD with SP2 incorporated and then performed a clean install on my test PC.

Works like a charm and on first boot the new Security control page prompts you to activate Auto-Update and the Firewall is activated by default.

I also checked in Services and found that Windows Messenger Service is also disabled by default.

Here is the link on how to slipstream SP2:

Dell OEM

In reply to: Slipstreaming SP2 for XP.

As you may recall Dell OEM disks can't be slippstreamed (is that a word?)

Can I use my XP Home upgrade disk (that I got from Kazaa ---only kidding!--- I bought it to upgrade a Win ME machine) to make a slipstream and then can I use this disk to reformat my Dell. Dell provides the drivers on a separate disk?

I have used a DELL XP HE CD to install on a HP or other make PC without any problems.

In all cases all I need to do was to use the CD-Keys that came with the HP/Compaq or other make PC.

I was also able to activate these installs.

I will try and create an XP HE SP2 CD with a DELL XP CD next.
