  • Can I / How to slipstream Intel drivers AND SP4 into W2K Pro

    G'day all -

    I have an Intel D845GEBV2 2.4GHz board with W2K Pro

    The first problem I had was installing the Intel drivers, because the board is somewhat younger than W2K. I downloaded them (kudos to Intel!!!), but discovered they need to be installed in a particular order: some have to be installed first, some need SP4...

    So, I figured that a slipstream might be a good idea, however there seems to be very little info on mixing the two sets. I did build a slipstream of the Intel drivers on my hard drive, but not the SP4.

    What do I need to know?

    Gordon.

    Once you slipstream X into an image, you can usually also slipstream Y into it as well. Google will tell you how to add drivers or service packs to a Windows 2000 CD - the latter being covered by one of Daniel's articles. Alternatively you could look at nLite.

      Use Nlite. Its the best and easiest tool for a job like this. Iv been using it for years and its always done a fantastic job.

        Thanks for the replies. I've had a long think about this, and I should have thought to say the problem really is how not to have Microsoft overwrite the slipstreamed Intel drivers with any parts of SP4.

        I realised that the Intel drivers only have to replace the Microsoft drivers: anything about Intel requiring SP4 is only for when the system is finally fired up.

        I guess that's what my question really is: will the Intel/SP4 mix in the slipstream fight with each other? I don't really know what is in SP4...

        @scurlaruntings - thanks for the advice. Actually, Petri has one of the best slipstream how-to's I've seen!
