AutoPatcher's little brother, AutoStreamer, has gone final :) Although still unknown whether it will carry any neowin.net badges, at its current state, AutoStreamer works as a slipstreamer-only. Basically, all it really needs is a source (that being an original Windows CD or a local share) and a Service Pack file.

Supported Operating Systems:
- Windows 2000 (All versions)
- Windows XP (All versions)
- Windows 2003 (All versions)

Supported Service Pack files:
- Windows 2000: SP3 onwards (meaning you can't select a SP1/SP2 file as a service pack)
- Windows XP: Any
- Windows 2003: Any

Download:
AutoStreamer

UPDATED - 08/24/04:

Fixes:
- It now detects 5.1.2600.2180 as Windows XP SP2 and not Pre-SP2
- Should work with ALL languages
- Recognizes Windows XP SP1/SP1a/SP2 (Wrong OS Error)


Have fun!

Ummm sorry, what does it do?..I'm guessing it...downloads the service pack and saves it on a disk or something like that?

Will this accept the FCKGW version of Windows XP Corporate Edition as a source?

Or does it need a legitimate copy of Windows?

No... let's assume you have this:

your original Windows XP CD
Service Pack 2 (when it comes out!) on your HDD (the distribution file!!!!)

AutoStreamer will slipstream (=integrate) the updated files and create a bootable cd image, ready for you to 'burn'. This way, if you ever have to reinstall windows, it will install using all the updated files :)

You put your XP CD in the drive, download a service pack and it will slipstream it automatically and create a bootable ISO for you, sweet!

As far as i know there's no FCKGW version of Windows XP... That's only a key... Yes, Corporate editions work. However, All-In-One versions don't (as far as I know Microsoft doesn't have such thing)

Thanks so much for you're info. That sounds pretty neat. Altho...It'll probably take only 5-10min to download SP2 if I needed to reinstall...(cable). But still a great idea. I'll probably use it.

Thanks Raptor for all of your help with this. It is awesome. I will be updating my website with an announcement that it is finally released and available for download from my site. I greatly appreciate all the time you have spent creating this for me and our fellow Neowins. I will also add a post to my forum. Thanks again and all I can say is "IT ROCKS!!"

Still... slipstreamed windows have one big advantage:

If you install windows xp gold today, it will take like 35-40 minutes? Then you will install SP1 (or 2 if you wish)... That will take you about 15 minutes, AND will play around with files (backups etc)

If you install windows xp sp1/sp2, it will take the same 35-40 minutes. Afterwards you won't have to waste more time or disk space...
