How to do raid drivers and hotfixes correctly. in Device Drivers Posted September 9, 2003 Thank you, for putting into words what I had only been thinking about doing.I had looked at the hotfix slipstreaming since I started slipstreaming last year, and was always detered by the tediousness, not to mention the warnings in all info I could find about it. My reasons were two fold: 1) To insure that the CD and the instalation had the same files, thus if windows file protection should really need to get back, the right version was on the CD, and not inside some hot fix. 2) Reduce the 30 minutes or so it seems to take to run the hotfixes (never figured out why it works so quicky when doing it from the Windows Update site). Part 1 is solved, but the hot fixes are still run, each and every one. (Sure takes a long tiome to go from 13 to 12 minutes left.) The point of my drawn out post is that whilst running the hotfixes during the instalation, it leaves behind many log files (Q??????.log) and copies of the cat files (SET??.tmp) all over the %SYSTEMROOT%. If you want to keep the install clean and minimailist, you may want to add the command to delete this files.And again, thanks for sharing.
