Well, this is interesting. I knew it could be done, but I didn't expect that Apple would provide an official way for it to be done.

By the way, since this only works with XP SP2 install discs, you may want to know how to make one if you only have a Pre-SP2 install disc.

The process is known as slipstreaming the install disc. You need to download SP2 and slipstream it into your install files.

Here's where you get the XP SP2 files from. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=049C9DBE-3B8E-4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en

If you are running Windows 2000 and need to slipstream an XP service pack, see the following article:

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=889719

Here are some instructions for making a bootable XP SP2 slipstreamed CD.

Hope this helps someone.

What bad form - 3 posts in a row from me.

This may be easiest of all of the slipstreaming methods, but I've never used it and can't vouch for it.

Off to a meeting now.

(Can you tell I'm interested in this topic?)

I never would have guessed :-)

PS - Yes I know that was rhetorical, but I laughed out loud while reading it, thus feeling compelled to comment.

Me neither. All I can guess is they thought about doing it for the beginning and put it out there as soon after it hackers found a way to do it to keep some control of it.

This has now officially convinced me to buy a Mac. Congratulations, Apple: you've won another supporter.

Dammit, until these Intel machines, my 1.33 17" Powerbook was just fine.

Now I'm getting the upgrade bug.

Since we got our computer out of storage I've been trying to get Windows Update to work properly. I still get the notification that there are critical updates, but when I try to get them I receive the message:
