  1. I started a thread asking that exact question and the answer was no, R2 can't be integrated in the "built into the Windows install" sort of way. Yes, you can use /integrate on CD2 as well. What's odd though is that (in my own personal experience), if you use /integrate on a combined directory, it will integrate both sets (2K3 and R2) just fine. First it does the 2K3 components, then a second process launches doing the R2 components.
  2. *sigh* Well, no wonder you're having problems. You weren't doing what I told you to do I told you to integrate SP2, as in, using the /integrate switch. As in, SP2 files overwrite existing files in your install source. As in, you don't have to install SP2 after the fact. As in, everything is SP2 from the beginning, including your R2 files.
  3. Pretty much every KB article lists the new file revisions a various hotfix includes, so keeping track of what obsoletes what is pretty straightforward. Just note the difference between GDR and QFE versions of the files, as they carry the same version number. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;824994
  4. This line troubles me a lot. Are you saying that you're installing SP2 after installing Windows?
  5. The 3MB .NET package is a bootstrapper which downloads the files it needs. Get the redist (50MB for x32) if you want the full thing. And yes, .NET 3.0 does include 2.0. And yes, my AIO is the way to go if you're at all interested in the size of your CD. PS: It's Ryan, not Rayen. EDIT: Looks I got beat to the bootstapper part. Oh well. BTW, I love it when people refer to my installers as "third party". You realize that all they are are administrative install points of the original MS download, right? But hey, what do I know?
  6. What was unclear about what I said? I specifically said you don't need 2.0 - only 3.0. I don't know how I could have given you any more definite of an answer...BTW, the full .NET 3.0 download is 90MB. Oh, and Server 2003 doesn't require .NET 1.1 because 1.1 already comes with 2003 (seriously, look at your install source).
  7. So make sure I'm completely on the same page as you, you're saying this doesn't work for you? 1.) Rip Win2K3 CD1 and CD2 to hard drive 2.) Merge the two directories into one install source 3.) Integrate SP2 into this new unified install source That's not working for you? When I did exactly those steps, the R2 components got updated just fine during the SP2 slipstream and R2 installed fine within Windows.
  8. I'm also pretty sure that they won't send any payments until you have at least $100 in your account, so plan accordingly if you want to use it to pay your hosting bills.
  9. Be EXTREMELY careful with the disk at this point, as you want to avoid making any changes. Your data is almost certainly recoverable as long as the drive itself is still functioning properly. Check out programs like GetDataBack or File Scavenger. I've used the latter quite successfully in the past.
  10. It never ceases to amaze me that here we are at MSFN and people can't seem to find that which this site was originally famous for: THE MSFN UNATTENDED GUIDE
  11. I don't get all the problems you've been having in this thread. In my own experience, I merged the two CDs and SP2 applied cleanly to the resulting install source without issue. First it did the regular CD1 components, then it spawned a second process and did the R2 components. Admittedly, I did it with x32, but could x64 really be that different?
  12. The resident batch scripting god . Of course, it could be done in VBScript or Autoit too.
  13. Even if you used an original XPSP2 CD, I'm 99.9% sure that nLite removes the files from the list of SFC-protected files as well, so Windows wouldn't even know to look for them.
  14. Hopefully I don't need to tell you what happens when you assume http://www.ryanvm.net/msfn/changelog.html will tell you exactly how often it's updated... nLite supports RAR, ZIP, 7zip, and CAB addons. As for what addons you should use, that really depends on what you want to do.
  15. You can, you can link directly to specific posts within a thread. All BB software supports it.
  16. Dude, where are you getting that from? I do my releases usually within a week of a given patch Tuesday @OP - If you're using my current April pack, you'll need to install WMP11, IE7, and .NET framework after installing Windows (if you don't directly integrate them with nLite). Windows Update will also report a couple WMP9 security updates that should be installed, but installing WMP11 will take care of those too .
  17. Where would it get the files from to do that? You do realize that your CD gets smaller by deleting files from it, right?
  18. Yay for me not being able to read . If you already have all the hotfixes downloaded, you could quite easily write a script which parsed a directory of hotfixes (really easy if they're named KBxxxxxx.exe) and used a simple registry query to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Updates\SP3 to determine whether or not each specific fix has been installed, installing it if it hasn't been.
  19. OK, I have to know. How have you been a member here for two years and not heard of my Update Pack? http://www.ryanvm.net/msfn/updatepack.html
  20. No, VMWare allows for 64bit guest OSes on a 32bit host OS (assuming you have a 64bit processor)
  21. .NET 3.0 includes .NET 2.0. Don't waste your time installing both when installing just 3.0 will suffice.
