MoHi, JosephBus1 Here...
I'm an oldie - started @ Bell Labs, where things like e-mail, Unix, etc. were developed, circa 1960s...
But Goodie - Gone away for awhile, but back as a user only...
Having challenges with using XP Pro as my "workhorse" until OpenSource stuff matures a little more...so...

Currently Have a desktop w/ 2 HDDs, 1 4 XP, other 4 Ubuntu (Linux)...

Current challenge is to do a dual boot on laptop that had Vista...which I dumped...
[Love Bill Gates (a good guy) but Microsoft is too greedy...]...

My need is to slipstream an XP CD/DVD for the HP Laptop & its drivers, don't know how to do that...

My Desktop is currently dual-boot with XP & Linux.

Also I recently bought a Logitech G110 Keyboard so that I could use keys for all those
logins, passwords (required a LOT in Linux). The G110 works OK in XP, but getting it to
work in Linux is a challenge...

'Nuff about me 4 now...& thx in advance 4 any help I can get on that...Joseph

Hi :).

I moved your post to the XP forum from Introductions. Members are urged not to post issues in that forum, since they may not be viewed by those who might answer them.

Since you have an HP laptop, it is unlikely that you will be able to slipstream an XP install CD from the media which came with it, AFAIK. But my knowledge of HP systems is limited.

What model (e.g., Presario 1234, etc.) is this laptop?

As long as the CD you are trying to use is a Windows install disk and not a restore disk you can slipstream services pack and microsoft updates into it. However I prefer to use Nlite as my method for slipstreaming. One because it is easier than using the command line slipstream method. Two because it allows you to add in all of the service packs, updates, plus any drivers you want in one easy set and then creates a .iso so you can burn the bootable disk from an image.


Not much on Linux but here is a link I found which might have some promise???

Hi Louis, Thx 4 moving my post...My Laptop is HP Pavilion, dv7, Model# dv7t-2000.

I'm hoping (as there are some sites that state this can be done but I have not yet tried)
I can create an XP Pro CD with the proper Laptop drivers...

====================================================
Hi Baltboy, Thx 4 Ur Msg, & suggestions.

Yes, I intend to give both Nlite & g15tools a try...

It will take some time, but I'll report any successes...Joseph
