Post-SP3 slip leaves only 12 non-changing KB updates?

Post by SubZero » Mon Jul 20, 2009 7:07 pm

To try updating my XP with RyanVM I added SP3 and RyanVM post-sp3 and then do an install on an empty drive.

Then I did Windows Update and it showed only these updates were needed:

KB971633 - Security Update For Windows XP
KB961371 - Security Update For Windows XP
KB961501 - Security Update For Windows XP
KB968537 - Security Update For Windows XP
KB970238 - Security Update For Windows XP
KB923561 - Security Update For Windows XP
KB956572 - Security Update For Windows XP
KB952004 - Security Update For Windows XP
KB960803 - Security Update For Windows XP
KB959426 - Security Update For Windows XP
KB960225 - Security Update For Windows XP
KB938464 - Security Update For Windows XP


KB905474 - Windows Genuine Advantage Notification
KB890830 - Malicious Software Removal Tool - July 2009
KB973346 - Cumulative Security Update For ActiveX Killbits For Windows XP
KB969897 - Cumulative Security Update For Internet Explorer 6 for Windows XP

First 12 are static and do not change?

Then 4 are changing?

I would like to be sure and see about what way there is to add the 12 to a slip with RyanVM, or more than 12 if some of the other 4 are needed to be slipped also. I ask for help to understand if this is right way of thinking on how to compare post-SP3 to ones not added in that update.

Thank you

Look in the Windows XP section of this forum and you will find a couple of packs that are actually up to date...

Ryans pack is getting rather old.

RyanVM includes only official patches just like those on Microsoft Update I think. I would like to keep the slip the same way, to only include official, like the 12 KB I post above.

Are there packs that do that too even they are not released by Ryan?

Thank you

Ryan's includes EVERY hotfix that MS releases. If you just want Windows Update hotfixes:

Thank you for reply

I have trouble sorting out different packs. I will do more reading to better understand.

I think I would like to try slip of SP3 then include RyanVM post SP3 and only the 12 or 15 of the listed KB above. Some other packs include more than that but are helpful to users too.

Thank you for links you have provided

So to understand properly, RyanVM is in actual terms not as lean, including of more than the bare minimum from High Priority updates?

But XABLE has post SP3 that is leaner, including only bare minimum that are identified truly as High Priority?

SP3 executable is the same, so only difference is in post SP3 package.

So with that, if you only desire to have what is listed on Windows Update as High Priority, XABLE pack is the one to use then?

Thank you

SubZero, that's correct. If you ONLY want High Priority updates, use Xable's pack.

Xable's pack is designed for integration with nLite. Not sure if it will integrate correctly with RVM Integrator.

I have an update.

I use RyanVM to create SP3 slip with Xable post SP3 pack

I used also nLite to create same

Both appeared working fine. Using RyanVM to slip had these ready to do windows update:

Cumulative Security Update For ActiveX Killbits For Windows XP (KB973346)
Internet Explorer 8 For Windows XP
Windows Genuine Advantage Notification (KB905474)

Using nLite to slip had only the bottom 2:

Internet Explorer 8 For Windows XP
Windows Genuine Advantage Notification (KB905474)

nLite worked better but RyanVM also was functioning just not at 100% like nLite.

Thank you for replies and help

Xable has a seperate addon for Windows Genuine Advantage Notification (KB905474). Plus a few more.

Oh, and IE8 is not included in any of the update packs except for OnePiece. ;)

Thank you for reply

For my preference I like that IE 8 and WGA are not included in a pack. I rather would make use of IE 7 if I am to upgrade from IE 6.

I think Xables default post SP3 install fits me best. WGA can be had when you do Windows Update and IE 7 can be run offline to install.
