GreenMachine's Complete SP3 SVCPACK.INF

Recommended Posts

Hi Greenmachine,

I made a test, I integrate SP3 with IE7 (at T13) into installation CD.

After installation, I add the following information into reg.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup\7.0\WU]


And immediately I install KB947864, unfortunately it still failed just like before. Only re-installing IE7 can solve this problem.

I did not test to install IE7 and KB947864 all at T13, but I think there is no much different than what I did, any comments please. Thank you.

By the way, KBxxxxxx /ER, what's mean for switch "/ER", thanks. I only use switch /q /n /z, should I use other switchs?

Well to quote myself,

Is there a reason why using SVCPACK.INF would prevent Windows XP Home OEM SP3 from creating a default user name at first logon?

The answer seems to be something to do with the .NET 1.1 installation or it's updates.

Following a lot of testing when these are commented in the SVCPACK.INF file, Windows XP Home OEM SP3 now installs correctly and the default "Owner" account is created.

Clearly something about this way of installing .NET 1.1 is not 100% working with Windows XP Home OEM.

Kind Regards


P.S. KB947864 does not install correctly for me either. QFECHECK reports incorrect versions for various files. It would appear that this install method will not work via SVCPACK.INF.

It works fine with XP Pro. It didn't include any of the option updates though. Also I slipstreamed IE7 with nLite before integrating this update as a service pack.

Oh . . . my . . . goodness. My sincere thanks, Green, wouldn't have been able to do this so seemlessly without your insights. I'm running all of this post-install, no need to update CDs.

In the never ending search for the complete, up to date Windows XP Installation, here is my latest SVCPACK.INF, used to install all the updates and hotfixes for Windows XP Service Pack 3. This list of updates and hotfixes are those I have determined to be necessary to show Zero Updates needed, High Priority or Recommended, in Windows Update. One major obstacle is finding the hotfixes. I use a combination of standard hotfix downloads from Microsoft, inspection of WindowsUpdate.log for update URLs, and NirSoft's SmartSniff to detect from where the hotfixes are downloaded. Please do the same to find your own hotfixes, and do not bother asking me for direct download links ...

Two problems discussed here and on other forums is how to install the .Net Frameworks (1.1 and 2.0), and the IE7 Updates from SVCPACK.INF. This is the only part of the installation that requires "smoke and mirrors".

For .Net, the file REG.EXE is extracted from the Windows source, and included in the SVCPACK folder. From there it is used to change two entries in the Windows registry to allow the installation of .Net 2.0. The .Net installers for .Net 1.1 and 2.0 have been renamed to DOTNET11 and DOTNET20, respectively. Oddly enough, .Net 3.0 and 3.5 do NOT show up as needed on Windows Update, but I suspect that will soon change.

The second problem was to allow the updates to IE7 to succeed. This was achieved by using REG.EXE again to add an entry into the registry to allow the update to run as if a Windows Update installation of IE7 was being performed. After the update is installed, the registry setting is deleted.

Using this green machine method successfulle but one little annoying thing in my install is that my IE7 tweaks doesn't all work. I'll give them during t-12 with cmdlines.txt method.

The couple ones that doesn't work are

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

When these ones doesn't work (for some reason) I have to go through settings when I first time open IE7 - however homepage and couple else tweaks works perfectly. But when I checked the registry (hkey_users/.default) also these two settings were there but when looking hkey_current_user they weren't there (before I have used IE7).

I don't know anymore what to try - it's not big deal but annoying. Meanwhile - I tried hfslip method and this way all IE7 tweaks worked (during t-12). Differende with my hfslip install (comparing to green machine method) is that there was also wga, MU stuff within install.

However - I'd like to use "green machine method" because then I know how it all goes...

So if anyone has ideas, please let me know,

Dear Members,

I have tried doing exactly as GreenMachine has been doing on this wonderful thread. My plan of attack was to [1] install a fresh copy of Windows Service Pack 3, [2] run all the updates on fresh install, [3] go through windowsupdate.log and download all the updates and [4] svcpack them in the order Microsoft installed them on my machine. I'm happy to to say, that I have 99% of the updates working! I used the "smoke and mirrors" to get DOTNET20 working, but it won't work for the newest IE7 update (KB950759). I've been pulling my hair out because I have no idea where to turn now! I searched google, and they are all saying try nLite. I tried it, but it would restart my installations for some strange reason. Besides, I like knowing exactly what has been modified on my image. Control issues I guess :). Anyway, I'm posting the newest (almost completely working svcpack.inf) which was updated today (11 Aug 2008). If you guys can help me on the final update before QCHAIN.exe, that would really help me out!

ISSUE: REG Hack for IE update KB947864 will not work for KB950759

PROBLEM: Windows XP SP3 setup hangs at this update (not even shown on taskmgr during setup)

ADD1: I can't even install KB950759 manually or from Windows/Microsoft updates (fails). Some posts I read earlier says I have to remove SP3 and then install the updates and install SP3 back on. I really don't have to do this, do I?

ADD2: Hmmm, I opened IE7.exe straight from the SVCPACK directory, reinstalled over existing IE7, and everything just worked! So I wonder why the SVCPACK.inf version didn't work? IE7 would run normal, but accept no updates? Does IE7 and its updates need to be installed after the setup?

@vectra: Of course I'll do the same! From what I've been reading, this is such a helpful community!

I didn't want to do it... I avoided it like the plague!!! But when there's a goal in mind and the walls are closing in, you have to move forward! I had to use other methods to slipstream Windows Media Player 11 and Internet Explorer 7. So here is how my WINXPSP3 setup to have zero updates, using mostly GreenMachine's awesome SVCPACK.INF.

Step 1: Slipstream Windows Media Player 11

I actually didn't have to do this, but since I was slipstreaming IE7, I figured I seen Windows Media Player 11 Slipstreamer so much, that I'd give it a try. I knew that this program had one task, and as I expected, it did it well!

Step 2: Slipstream Internet Explorer 7

I didn't find a program called IE7-slipstreamer or something like that, but nLite supported IE7. So I reluctantly showed nLite where my source was, and slipstream that one update to my files. Went through with no problems.

Note: From this point, I installed my fresh copy of WINXPSP3 with IE7 and with WMP11. The install went very smoothly. And like my last post, I copied all the hotfixes (which there were a lot more for some reason), and downloaded them all. As before, I put them in the same order as Windows Updates. Now let's continue with our steps.

Step 3: Copy all your hotfixes into the SVCPACK folder

I hate this part. I copied and renamed each file. I don't think you have to rename it, but I'm kinda a neat freak in that sense. Anyway WMPSlipstreamer and nLite should have generated a SVCPACK folder and a SVCPACK.INF in your I386 folder. You may have to "expand -r SVCPACK.IN_".

Step 4: Modify your SVCPACK.INF

Add all those updates to your SVCPACK.INF.

Step 5: Go! Go! Go! Install Windows XP SP3

Need I say more?

The install for me went well after slipstreaming IE7. The updates went through without a hitch using GreenMachine's method. But I don't want the members on this forum to give up! Find out how to get WINXPSP3 completely updated straight from SVCPACK.INF. That's my dream, but I have used nearly a week of freetime solely on this project. I must move on! But I hope I helped this community in a small way by registering to this forum and sharing my experience. Attached is the image of my zero updates (OK, there's one software update which is Windows Desktop Search, which I absolutely hate). Take it easy and good luck!
