I would be able to tell you if VirtualPC was any quicker.

The extra install time is making me think its not worth doing the slipstream options and just using an inf file from the desktop at startup.

It been sat on 13 mins now for ages.............

be patient I have the smae problem but I can tell you it goes by much faster when installing on bare hardware. In virtualpc it prababy sits for about 45 minutes at 13 minutes it's normal.

Dime to a Dollar it's 817778 ...

Spot on - That screen dissapeared when i removed this hotfix.

@webmedic In your answers to my questions earlier you said that the problem with the mdac h/f was solved but in the last post of your do.cmd the problem is still there.

Do you have an updated version or am i jumping the gun.

this is the link for that thing kb817778

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=817778

it is not strictly a hotfix it does way more than that as it upgrades major parts of your tcpip stack and just by looking at waht it does. If you guys dont know ipv6 and nat address translation menas that whenever you do anything on the interenet you can be tracked by the mac address of your hardware.

As for mac address's every netwrok card or modem or any piece that lets you communicate with the interent has a unique address. This is called a mac address. With that patch they can track everything you do back exactly to you.

I don't do a bunch of file sharing but if you do avoid that hotfix like the plague. It will allow you ot be tracked by the hardware in your computer.

Now as for the mdac hotfix working or not. Yes it does worl with my latest script but it is a little more work to get installed.

Now first thing is you will need to make a few directories.

$OEM$\$1\install\tmp

$OEM$\$1\install\system

$OEM$\$1\install\system\hotfixes3

now put the mdac hotfix into hotfixes3 you will need to use the shortend one that do.cmd makes for you which can be found in directory 3. Do will automaticly shorten it for you if it not already.

and last but not least here is the last do.cmd

I want to add here that this script is not for windows update things persay it is only for security related hotfixes. I guess it could apply to critical updates also. The things that are listed under windows update as just windows xp updates are not intended to be instaled this way. This is only so you have a secure system after install not to slipstream every windows update into place.

Now having said that. I have talked to another memeber here that works at micrsoft about slipstreaming other bits and pieces that are normally just windows updates like .net 1.1 and dx9 into the installer and not even those can be done cleanly so you would be best off not trying to do those with the scripts I have posted here.

Dime to a Dollar it's 817778 ...

Just looked at this and it is not a critical update. It is a recommended update. I need to stress this again this script is setup to install critical updates only. If it does happen to work wiht recommended updates then it is only that you are fortunate. Recommended updates are not always intended by micrsoft even to be slipstreamed.

Yes, I saw that MSKB article. What rubs me the wrong way is that even following the steps indicated, using the switches they list, it still gives me an error (though I am confident it installs OK). I played around with it for a while directly at the command line, determined that there is a bug in it, and have not looked at it since. (I have enough of my own de-bugging to do ...) Anyway, I'm not crazy about the idea of sharing my MAC address.
