Default SP2 CD

I have four legal copies of Windows XP, two Home and two Professional.
Whenever I need to reinstall onto a new computer or a repaired system, it is
now a two-step process that takes almost three hours:

- Perform the reinstall
- Apply the patch to SP2

Microsoft Support wants $30 + tax/shipping to send me replacement CDs that
have SP2 on them, and before I bite that bullet, I am wondering if there is
a more creative solution. Is there any way to create an SP2 CD from the
combined components of an original CD and the components of the downloaded
patch? Any other solutions or paths to take to resolve this? I imagine this
has been a source of discussion for some time, although a Google search did
not turn up anything, perhaps owing to my uncertainty over which keywords to
use.

Thanks in advance for any direction that you can provide...

Look here...

http://www.nliteos.com/

The software will "slipstream" SP2 with your XP CD and you can then burn a
new copy of XP with SP2 integrated.

There are many different ways to accomplish creating a bootable XP CD =
with SP2 slipstreamed. Here are a couple of sites that have information. =

Yes there is. It is called Slipstreaming and can be done manually or
via some applications that put a GUI menu interface on the process.

I use nLite so I can slipstream the SP2 IT 266meg file in PLUS the
RyanVM HotFix Cab file which are all the post SP2 hotfixes which keeps
you from having to do all the updates online after the installation
(you are already up-to-date). PLUS... nLite lets you set certain OS
configuration options and Tweaks to the installation CD so it will
look and act the way you want after installation.

nLite is my suggestion since it lets you do so much more than just
slipstream the service pack.

Regards,
Ed

Slipstream SP2 into your original CD - it works fine.
