Slipstreaming sp1 to initial versions of server 2003

Post by ruulist » Mon Dec 04, 2006 4:09 am


After reading all threads, I still missed something essential.

Can I use downloaded SP1 (over 300Mb) to slipstream initial release of Server 2003 Standard or Enterprise release, using Ryan integrator?

I would recommend following these steps
  1. Copy the contents of the install CD to a director on your hard drive (IE C:\Win2k3\StandardEdition\)
  2. Download the SP1 for Windows 2003
  3. Create a shortcut to Windows 2003 SP1
  4. Edit the shortcut adding ' -s:C:\Win2k3\StandardEdition\' emitting the quotation marks, C:\Win2k3\StandardEdition\ will need to be substituted for the director that you copied all the files to
  5. Now when you run the shortcut after making these changes a windows informing you that the files are being extracted will appear after that has completed another windows will appear called "Windows Service Pack 1 Setup Wizard" also saying "Updating Your Windows Share" You will get a message box to inform you that to process is done

or you can run the service pack itself with the correct command line switches to integrate it into an existing i386.
