I'm having problems updating my Windows XP CD. When I try to update my Setup files, the command c:\xpsp2\i386\update\update /s c:\xpsetupcd returns a dialog box listing the available switches, none of which is /s. The only one listed that seems to apply is /integrate: When I try that one I get an error message:

Failed to copy some or all of the file necessay for integrated install

Please check that:
a) No network or copy errors occured during the integration process
b) The formate of the destination directiory is correct
The files to be integrated must reside in an 1386 and/or ia64 or
nec98 directory
(i.e. for an 1386 share, if you typed "update /s c:\cdshare, the
files must be in the c:\cdshare\i386 directory

Everything seems to check out fine, so I am at a total loss as to what I may be doing wrong. Anybody have any suggestions? Thank you.

You tried just using C:\xpsp2\ ? I'm pretty sure thats all I had to use.

I think its

/s:c:/xpsetupcd

at least that's what the text said in the magazine last time I looked. ;)

C:\sp2\sp2.exe -x (extract) and

C:\sp2\i386\update\update.exe -s:C:\XP (to slipstream)

Ok thanks to all, I found the solution to the problem, I was leaving a space between the /integrate: and the c:\xpsetupcd, there should be no space, all continuous. So the correct syntax should be:

c:\xpsp2\i386\update\update /s:c:\xpsetupcd or:
c:\xpsp2\i386\update\update /integrate:c:\xpsetupcd

I've tried both & they both seem to work

(Feel free to modify it if your data is stored somewhere other than c:\xpsp2 and/or c:\xpsetupcd).

I agree, nice page drain. That deserves to be in some kind of faq.
