Hi,

Years ago I used this tutorial http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/slipstreaming-windows-xp-to-create-bootable-cd/ to create an XP CD with SP3 on it. I no longer run XP and was wondering if the same thing can be done with Windows 7 SP1.

The tutorial for creating the bootable XP disc worked great and I would like to have a backup with SP1 on it for my Win7 Home Premium x64 (retail version). I didn't see anything in the Win 7 tutorials, maybe it can't be done with 7, but if it can I would do it so I have the cd with SP1 on it already.

Thanks for any replies.

Thank you very much Louis, :cool: I am a member at Sevenforums but I thought I'd ask over here since the this is where I got the information to create the XP SP3 cd. The tutorial at bleepingcomputer was easy to follow and I had no trouble at all. I've followed some at sevenforums, like the tutorials here you need to follow them exactly and they will work.
