In this tutorial
Titled "Slipstreaming Windows XP To Create a Bootable Windows XP CD or DVD"
is a slipstreaming method I've seen in several places in addition to this one.

But, quoting from this tutorial's list of what's needed

"1. An existing copy of Windows XP home, Professional, or Media Center. Unfortunately, for this step you can not use an OEM CD provided by your computer manufacturer (Dell, HP, etc)."

So, given that so many retail computers came with a vendor installed Windows plus they buggerd it with all sorts of applications I don't need or want, HOW can we make a good, clean, no bloat, Windows setup disk? Has anybody managed to do it and if so can someone provide foolprrof step-by-step instructions?

Or do we have to wait for some class-action suit against the OEM manufacturers for destroying a legitimate, licenced, paid for Windows, or what?
