Slipstream

Automatically Slipstream Windows XP with SP3 and All Post-SP3 Security Hotfixes with a Single Command (Updated 03-May-09)

For information about slipstreaming Windows XP SP2, visit http://smithii.com/slipstream_xpsp2.

I've written the batch file xpsp3.cmd (updated 03-May-09) to automatically download and slipstream a standard Windows XP boot disk with Service Pack 2 and all post-SP3 security hotfixes.

It uses wget or curl (if either are found in the PATH), or your installed browser to download the updates. I have tested this with Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera. Other browsers should work, as well.

The batch file xpsp3local.cmd (updated 03-May-09) will update the copy of Windows XP that is installed on the computer you run the command on. You may wish to do this, if you do not have, or want, the machine you want to hotfix connected to the internet, or if you are unable to run Windows Update for some reason (for example, if Internet Explorer isn't installed, or doesn't work properly, due to a virus or similar mishap).

To slipstream the hotfixes, and burn the slipstreamed disk, I've created the makefile xpsp3.mak (updated 03-May-09). Details on usage below.

Error 0x715 slipstreaming KB994653

After downloading KB944653: MS07-067: Vulnerability in Macrovision Driver Could Allow Local Elevation of Privilege and running

WindowsXP-KB944653-x86-ENU.exe /integrate:d:\X1APCCP_EN\X1APCCP_EN

a popup window happily reports

Integrated install has completed successfully.

But all is not well in Microsoftland. Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 2.01 reports KB944653 still needs to be installed.

So I ran

WindowsXP-KB944653-x86-ENU.exe /integrate:d:\X1APCCP_EN\X1APCCP_EN /log:d:\kb994653.log

again, and the log reports:

[kb994653.log]

Uh oh, "Error 0x715" and, even better, "Error 0x0 while trying to retrive" (sic).

It seems I386\SECDRV.SY_ on every CD of Windows XP Professional I own, does not have any versioning information in the file. Here are the details:

SECDRV.SY_, 7,261 bytes, dated 8-04-2004 4:00:00, which expands to
secdrv.sys, 27,440 bytes, dated 7-17-2004 11:36:38.
