How to make slip for SP3 and after SP3 updates with RyanVM or other?

I know RyanVM for when I slipped official SP2, and that is all I have used. Nothing new since then.

I think I want to slip official SP3 and all of the updates from microsoft window update page except internet 8 (keep internet 7 instead)

I don’t think RyanVM has all of the updates after SP3 so I want to ask if it can do it or if I need other slip program to do that.

Thank you for answer the question.

Ryan is extremely busy right now so he cannot devote much time to creating update packs. His last update was the Post XP SP3 pack in January.

If you take the time to browse the RyanVM forums, you will discover many options from other forum contributors, some of who has parterned with Ryan in the development of several update options.

These forum members have been kind enough to provide us with options in the interim.

eg…
Member [B]OnePiece[/B] has updated his Post XP SP3 offerings to include updates as of July 9th, 2009.

The Windows XP sub section underOther Update Packs may be helpful in researching alternative update packs.

The message boards are teaming with options and information.

Former CDFreaks forum member [B]code65536[/B] also codes update packs for the RyanVM message boards members.

Still I can use RyanVM and get up to date slipped burns? I use instead other user pack to supplement S3 from Ryan?

Thank you

Absolutely, The RyanVM Integrator coded by Signet is the backbone from which all the pack are coded.

They are compatible with the RynVM Integrator. Any issues are normally corrected immediately by subsequent releases within hours.

Most Post XP SP3 update packs contain all High Priority updates, most Optional Updates.

[B]OnePiece[/B], [B]Xable[/B], [B]redxii[/B] and [B]user_hidden[/B] all offer updated Post XP SP3 update packs.

Here is an example of [B]Xable’s[/B] most recent offering…
http://xable.net/xp-sp3-update-pack-contents.php

And from [B]user_hidden[/B]…
http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7184

All are integrated with the RyanVM Integrator.

[B]nLite[/B] is also an integration option but if there are any issues with the nLite integration (and there usually are), the update pack authors do not provide the same suppot that they would for the RyanVM integrator.

Thank you for reply

I find that 15 critical update are newer than last RyanVM update.

I slipped SP2 with RyanVM SP3 and Post-SP3 to disc and install it and activate and do Windows Update. 17 update minus IE 8 and WGA after activate so only 15.

Good result is RyanVM SP3 and Post-SP3 still integrate with only IE 6 so user can choose which of IE 7 or IE 8 they get through Windows Update.

Thank you

I have listed windows update after RyanVM SP3 and Post SP3 have been slipped. I did not list Internet Explorer 8 but do list Windows Genuine Advantage. If these could be included in slip with RyanVM, that would be best if customizing is not needed and you only want bare minimum without non microsoft updates. Here is the list:

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

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

If there is a way to add these into the RyanVM slip, I would like that very much.

Thank you

It is not advised to slipstream Windows Genuine Advantage.

KB961501 was replaced by KB968585
KB968537 was replaced by KB972483

All other updates listed ablve are inclusive of the RyanVM’s forum member [B]user_hidden[/B] Post SP3 Update Pack v1.06.

This can be found here…
XPSP3_QFE_UpdatePack for Windows XP Post-SP3 1.06 20090714

I would suggest that you integrate SP3 into your installation disc first. You can then use the RyanVM integrator to integrate the Post SP3 Update Pack listed above, [B]INSTEAD[/B] of the RyanVM Post SP3 Update Pack.

Your chosen version of Internet Explorer (IE7 or IE8) can also be integrated using the RyanVM integrator.

Update Pack Addons

I’m not particularly fond of add-ons by member [B]nonno fabio[/B], but that’s just a personal preference. Usually too much bloat.

Member and Moderator [B]MrNxDmX[/B] has abandoned his IE7 add-on, but it is still an excellent add-on, if IE7 is your choice. I believe version 2.0.4a is still available.

[Release] Internet Explorer 7 English w/Updates (v2.0.4a)
Be mindful that the included IE7 updates are dated, so there will be Windows updates for IE7 after your Windows installation is complete.

Thank you for reply

I will read post more later so I can understand better but to ask now the user hidden update:

Thank you for reply

I think to compare RyanVM post SP3 to the user hidden post SP3 is what I am to do next.

I have thought that to slip SP2 disc with SP3 is a good idea that you said then do post SP3 after more reading helps me understand each offering.

I find that 12 updates are to be static and not change but 4 do:

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

I have downloaded all 16 files as separate so I can have them offline and could make folder on slipped SP3 and post SP3 disc with those 12 or 16 files on it so there is not a need to do windows update to get them.

Thank you

Dowloading updates seperately and slipstreaming them is twice the work.

Almost all of the updates are already included in the Post XP SP3 Update Packs.

My sugestion, use your original Windows XP CD and slipstream SP3 and the Post SP3 Update Pack of your choice. You can include popular add-ons such as IE8, Microsoft .NET Framework [B]All-in-one[/B] and DirectX Runtimes.

Thank you for reply

I will search and do message reads on the RyanVM board and learn of ways to do updates. Thank you for helping

I follow your advice and create new SP3 added slip and now have Windows XP SP3 instead of SP2. That is what you get if you were buying Microsoft Windows SP3 at a store?

If that is so then I need only to slip the pack of choice. I see XABLE pack and think that is leanest even leaner than RyanVM. Is it the only one to include only High Priority items listed in Windows Update page?

I would like only High Priority except for the IE 8 or IE 7.

But as you say, also not WGA.

Is the XABLE the right one to use?

Thank you

I tested with Xable post SP3 using nLite and RyanVM both and had good endings.

nLite only left 2 options:

IE 8
WGA

RyanVM on same pack left 3 options:

Killbits (KB973346)
IE 8
WGA

Xable has a pack that works with both but better with nLite

Thank you for helping. I have learned how to make best slip update now.

I’m glad you are having some success with this project.

[B]Xable’s[/B] pack, by his own admission, is based on Ryan’s pack.
He simply added the updates that Ryan has been too busy to add.

However, the choice of packs is yours. Keep in mind that [B]user_hidden’s[/B] pack has been widely endorsed by all the major players in the forum, including Ryan.

http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7184

Not to mention that the [B]user_hidden[/B] pack has evolved through several genesis.

I use nLite for customizations only, and not for integration. It has been discovered that there are sometimes issues with the packs and applications created by some of the contributors in the RyanVM forums.

I use the RyanVM Integrator to integrare the Post XP SP3 Update packs and the add-ons, such as IE7, IE8, WGA, DirectX, .NET Framework 1 to 3.5, etc.

[QUOTE=Nemesys;2311866]I’m glad you are having some success with this project.[/QUOTE]

I am starting small to work my way up when I learn more about other packs.

I know RyanVM and am familiar so that it makes sense and Xable’s pack is good that it is only including newer updates since official RyanVM packs were released.

I like that option to have no IE 7, IE 8, dotNET, etc. That is for security first and the less problems the better.

Now that is settled, I can take time to learn other packs too. I have the most simple solution as a backup to more advanced help in other packs.

It is nice to see packs made available for no cost to help other users. All you need pay is time to learn the differences.

nLite was new to me and I only did very basic but it worked ok even though RyanVM is more comfortable to me.

Thank you for helping

If user_hidden has not only all of the content of the Ryan post SP3 pack plus all of the more recent updates, will Ryan stop making his own post SP3 update pack current? Will user_hidden pack become the one that Ryan recommends to use?

Ryan’s post on Sunday May 10th, 2009.

Thank you for reply

I think I can be safe to say that Ryan and user_hidden are the ones to use for slipping.

Xable makes great post SP3 pack I feel and is good if you want only minimum needed to slip security fixes.

But if we expect a pack to be much like Ryan with the extra updates we may choose to slip user_hidden at least until official Ryan post SP3 pack is updated.

I understand better now and thank you for helping again.
