I have two CDs here, one with XP (Gold) and one with XP SP2.

What steps do I have to take to be able to install XP on a fresh HDD with all the latest updates so that if I ran Windows Update in a few hours time, nothing would appear as everything would be installed?

AutoStreamer should work.

I wouldn't know what patches to download and where to find them. Would I have to search and find each one on the Microsoft KB website? :| That would take hours.

EDIT: AutoStreamer only seems to be able to slipstream a service pack.

I believe you would need to manually download all the update packages and "integrate" them one by one. If you just choose to download any updates that apply to the version of XP you have, and any driver/hardware updates if you want them.

There are hundreds :/ lol

EDIT: Ah, http://hf.xable.net/index.php did at one time make them all available to download at once (bottom link) but they can't afford hosting any more.

In a way, yeah. I want to install Windows with SP2 and not have to hit WU/MU and download 150+ MB of updates each time. AutoPatcher isn't what I mean/want.

RyanVM's Update Packs

Download the update pack, download the integrator. Run the integrator. Integrate. Make ISO. Burn. Done. :)
