I want the entire upgrade for SP3 on CD

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by tango@noplace.com, Jun 7, 2010.

    I'd like to get the entire upgrade package for XP-SP3 onto a CD.
    I have the install CD for the original XP (version 1).

    I'm on dialup and can not upgrade online because of the slow speeds.

    I can have a friend on high speed internet download it and either burn
    a CD for me, or give it to me on a flash stick so I can burn my own
    CD.

    My question is where do I get the full upgrade package?
    I'm assuming it's all either one huge compressed file, or an ISO.
    (Or is it separate files?). Please tell me where to download this.

    Thanks

    To "slipstream" the service pack into your installer CD, you can
    try NLite. It takes your install CD plus the service pack, and
    prepares a new installer CD for you. You take the output of
    NLite and burn a new CD with it.

    Does anyone know how about many MS updates for XP Pro/Home have been
    released since XP3?

    Kind of a vague question which I guess would depend on what you are
    running, but just say XP Pro 32 with maybe OE and IE and not much else
    MS related.

    More than 7 I think.

    Just curious.

    Not on that machine right now but approximate numbers were 40+ important,
    20+ recommended, 10 - 15 optional. So about 75 - 80 total with a full
    install,

    While this sounds handy, it sounds like too much hassle for one or two
    installs. I assume I can just install XP from the original CD, then
    stick in the upgrade CD, (IS THIS CORRECT? )

    For someone in a computer business who installs an OS many times a
    day, this might be handy, but for one time use, why bother. Seems it
    would be a lot easier to just install two CDs than go thru all of
    this.

    Yes. It doesn't even have to be an "upgrade CD." As long as you have the
    SP3 .exe file (say, for instance, on a flash drive), you can copy it to
    the hard drive and double-click it.

    The reason is that you can't predict the future. In the event that you
    may at some point need to perform a Repair Install with an installation
    CD that you have created at the correct Service Pack level (SP3), you
    would be better served by Paul's suggestion. (Then again, I suppose you
    could make the argument that if that need ever arose, you could create
    the CD at *that* time.)

    Just did a install of XP on an old Gateway with 98SE so I could get a few
    more years out of it. When I updated my daughter's Toshiba to SP3 I used the
    download the others mentioned and made a copy of it ona dvd just in case.
    Never know when you will need to do a reinstall.

    This is what I did.

    Clean install of the XP SP2.
    Turned off Auto Update.
    Loaded my AV and drivers for my wireless PCI card.
    Up dated my AV.
    Went to Windows Update to get the updates from after SP3.
    Counting todays 12, there are about 112.

    since SP3.

    I didn't even bother with a second CD. Just put it on a thumb drive.

    That's about right since 1 MB=1024 KB and 1 KB=1024 bytes

    331,805,736/1024=324,029.0390625

    and

    324,029.0390625/1024=316.43460845947265625

    316.4(3460845947265625) can be rounded to 316.4

    And why would one need to "copy it to the hard drive" before executing the
    file by double-clicking it? Do you really believe that executable files
    can't be run from any other storage device?

    That would certainly be an option, too. I happen to like storing
    installation files in an installation folder on the hard drive. This way
    if the file on the flash drive disappears, it doesn't need to be
    re-downloaded. Just my particular quirk and not necessary as you have
    pointed out.

    That being said, I would imagine the installation would be quicker if
    not installing directly from a flash drive. But that's only a guess. If
    others have tried both ways, I'd like to know what their experiences
    were.
