Xp With Sp2 And Programs

Recommended Posts

As mentioned above, it is possible to "slipstream" SP2 into an XP install CD. But, there is no way to add other programs beyond that.

The closest you could possibly get to having XP, SP2 and extra programs on the CD would be to install them all to a harddrive, configure it the way you want, then use Norton Ghost (Or a similar program) to burn an image of the harddrive to CD or DVD. Then, when it comes time to reinstall, simply re-write the image to the harddrive, and you'll be in business.

Keep in mind, that this won't work if any major hardware (Motherboard, CPU, etc.) has been changed since the image was created, thanks in part to XP's very stupid Product Activation thing.
