  • Download all Windows Updates at once?

    I've done some Googling but without any luck.

    I want to be able to download ALL updates in one shot.

    The issue I have is that I don't know which updates I need. I'm not sure how to go about finding out when trying to make a nLite CD...if it's an installed OS it's a no brainer.

    All of the searching I've done tells me that you pretty much have to know ahead of time SPECIFICALLY which updates you need/want.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I've been using an OLD nLite CD from around 3 years ago. It still works fine, but I'd like to include more updates and change a few things.

      I heard a rumour that there will be a new service pack released soon from M$
      Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

          it's not a rumor, SP3 has been in the works for a while now. but it's still in BETA.

          XP with SP2 is very stable. I won't be updating mine at all. SP3 is probably filled with more DRM crap that M$ loves to shove down our throats

            I'm a bit confused...it doesn't look like this update INCLUDES SP2, only that it is everything AFTER SP2?

            Yeah - there's a beta out there for it. Not so interested in it for the car just yet.

                To use the Windows Update website update you are at the mercy of their detection tool and will not be able to get all updates in one go. In fact, some updates must be installed after others, like service pack 1 for the .NET framework must be installed after the .NET framework. I am sure that microsoft could just integrate it all into one update but they wont. You may have to use the hacks mentioned

                    yeah, that site got slashdotted.... there are other patch slipstreaming packs for nlite though....check nlite's site, there should be links to them. I haven't used any myself so I have no experience with them.

                      sorry. I was under the impression that you already had SP2 on your disc. you can download SP2 here

                      i know it's not all at once, but it's only two files and will make your new nLite completely up to date

                        Here's what I've got going on. The nLited version of Windows I have is a corporate version. I don't have THAT original CD any more, but I do have an original CD for XP Academic version. It doesn't say it has SP 2 on it, so I'm assuming it doesn't...unfortunately...

                          I'm using SP3 RC2 right now. It doesn't really add a lot as far as space. It's just like what you would have if you ran every update. There are a bunch of sites that explain slipstreaming like http://www.helpwithwindows.com/Windo...p2-bootcd.html
                          so you can make a bootable XP from your original with all the files overwritten with the updates. No rebooting 50 times. It will save you time when you need it.

                            You can download SP3 via widows update, you have to go there and download a registry entry from M$ that will let you download it 1st.

                            SP3 claims to be bang up to date

                            Heres the file that adds the reg entry
