    Hi!

    I would like to know if it is possible to for example download all Windows 200 updates and burn then to a CD.. i have to install all updates on x7 Win 2000 machines and would like to avoid downloading all updates for each machine..

    Thx

    I'm not sure on this, but I believe you will need to update each manually...

    I would normally say use nLite or download the service packs (both would apply to XP), but I'm pretty sure neither is a solution in this case...

    Good luck :)

    if the machines are all the same you could set up one and clone it to the other machines using norton ghost or something similar.

    My tip is as follows:

    1./ Slipstream the latest service pack. MS site tells you how to do this. But here is a summary. You run the service pack at the command line with the following switches. NO SPACES between integrate and the colons.
    Code:
    sp2udate.exe /integrate:c:\W2K3install
    2./ Have the "hotfixes" and patches that are not yet part of a hotfix installed using qchain and a batch file. You need to have downloaded the updates, not "run" them directly from Windows Update. When there are new updates, you just download them, add them to the folder, and update the batch file.

    Look, here is my .bat file for W2K3

    Code:
    @echo off
    echo JAN 2009 version
    
    setlocal

    What a lot of updates! What a shame MS has dumped SP3 for W2K3. It really wouldnt take too much resource to release one. I think they do it deliberately... so that it is FASTER to install a new versions of windows (Vista, win7, etc.) than to install you older versions and then update them.

    nLite can do it for you. Use WUD (Windows Update Downloader) to download all updates.
