Updating my unattended XP CD source

Post by mgadallah » Sat Feb 13, 2010 7:33 am

Hello

Please I'd like to update my XP CD source and would like to ask few questions about this regard.

1) Which add on or package has the most recent updates so I can integrate it after integrating XP SP3!?

2) After applying this add on or this package does there is any extra hotfixes I am still need to integrate into the XP CD source!?

Thanks a lot,
Mohamed

user_hidden's, OnePiece's and Xable's update packs are all up to date. OnePiece provides an all-in-one solution, Xable offers the bare essentials, and user_hidden's is a great balance between the two. It's up to you to decide which serves your needs best.

redxii seems to have taken a break from updating. I don't know if or when he will return.

Thanks a lot for your reply mate.

Please may I review steps for the CD!?

1st => integrate SP3 into the source.
2nd=> integrate one piece package into the source.
3rd=> integrate wmp11 using wmp slip streamer.
4th=> integrate driver packs packages.
5th=> using WinntbbuED for setup billboard.
6th=> using wpi to add applications silently.

Do you think that there is anything missing or need to be done!? :rolleyes:

Thanks,
Mohamed

WMP11 is included in OnePiece's update pack. You don't need to use the slipstreamer. Everything else seems good.

actually you are wrong, well, a quick check on Xable's updates and reached this conclusion:

KB975167, KB959085 and KB951163 supersedes KB951748, version proof:
Afd.sys - KB951748 v5.1.2600.5625 vs. KB975167 v5.1.2600.5877
Dnsapi.dll - KB951748 v5.1.2600.5625 vs. KB959085 v5.1.2600.5817
Mswsock.dll - KB951748 v5.1.2600.5625 vs. KB951163 v5.1.2600.5649
Tcpip.sys - KB951748 v5.1.2600.5625 vs. KB951163 v5.1.2600.5649
Tcpip6.sys - KB951748 v5.1.2600.5625 vs. KB951163 v5.1.2600.5649
KB969898 supersedes KB950760
KB961605 supersedes KB950762
KB973687 supersedes KB954459 and KB955069
KB969084 supersedes KB956744
KB959554 supersedes KB956802
KB975167 supersedes KB956803
KB971737 supersedes KB960803
KB968585 supersedes KB961501
KB971029 supersedes KB967715
KB974841 supersedes KB970238
KB978125 supersedes KB976098

KB898461 is for Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition SP1, isn't this included in SP3?

Also, KB948720 says this applies to Windows Server 2008 Datacenter, Windows Server 2008 Enterprise and Windows Server 2008 Standard so why is it included in user_hidden and OnePiece update packs for Windows XP Service Pack 3?

After a 3 days work I piled down a list of 188 hotfixes (without counting KB892130 and KB905474 like in his list). I'm not 100% sure if my list is only for SP3 with IE6 and WMP9 and has some updates for later versions of IE or WMP. Will check that out some other time.

Anyway, I did in the spirit of sharing a information with this great community (thanks for sharing guys, keep it up!). Below are my current findings. :D

First, a list that I gathered from user_hidden, nonno fabio, redxii and Xable's updates pages and to which I added my own findings.

quite a long list isn't it? :rolleyes: I would appreciate some feedback about the stuff I found. :wink:

I wonder if KB945060 is included in SP3, cos the date on the file it fixes is 4/09/2008 and SP3 was released 5/6/2008.

I haven't found anything about KB974841, KB975791, KB978125 and
KB965220. Got any links?

Edit: fixed some links. :rolleyes:

WOW

Oh man ... this is really a lot of information

Please do me a favor and tell me what shall I do to do it the correct way!?

I mean I want to have an updated XP CD but really confused now, I've downloaded one piece package as it is the comprehensive one as mentioned above, so shall I go with it or you advise for something else!?

Thanks,
Mohamed :)

For the time being just update your CD with what you got, and if anything changes later on you will do another update then.

maybe the list is not up to date

any way about your question Mohamed

one peice is quite a big package and it got all what you need

it simple and integrating will do the job quite well

so it's up to you to do the choose

I can appreciate that you have put a lot of work into your reply. But I'm not wrong. ;)

Perhaps you missed the following:

Rather than argue over individual updates, I'll offer this single screenshot of an XP SP3 install with XUpdatePack-SP3-v1.0.27.7z. The only addon used was for WGA.

And his updates list is accurate...

If it WU doesn't say you are missing some fixes thus doesn't mean you got ALL the updates that are available for SP3. :P

Taking Xable's update pack as an example I just pointed out that there are some new versions of some files. :)

Anyway, checked a new round of fixes I found and here are the results:

new updates:
KB977748, KB907306, KB941569, KB969878, KB963093, KB973039

KB975167 supersedes KB951748

There is obviously some miscommunication here. Please allow me to clarify:
  • Xable does not include QFE updates. He only includes high priority updates that appear on the Windows Update website.
By that definition and the screenshot I have provided, his update pack is up to date.

I was using Xable's update pack before coming onto this thread. cezarica says the files included in his updates are not upto date, can some please verify that...

That depends on your definition of "up to date," irulehard.
  • Microsoft Update site / Windows Update site / Automatic Updates / (All GDR updates) - Xable's update pack is up to date.
  • All QFE updates released by Microsoft - Not intended to be up to date.
My first post in this thread offers a general summary of the packs available and what each offers.
