the problem is that I do not have the original CD anymore to start from scratch,

what if I integrate only the new hotfixes, using integrate switch which will make a svcpack.ini and copy the new ones in svcpack folder, will that interfere with the previous hotfixes?

Will I get a nice clean install?

Hi,

I've never done it that way, but I suspect that it should work if you follow Microsoft's "integration" method using the /integrate switch.

Cheers,

Andy
