MOSS 2007 SP1 with Infrastructure update slipstream optimization


Few months ago, I posted a little step-by-step tutorial to generate an ISO file to have a “ready to use” up to date source for MOSS 2007 setup (this post is still here).

The setup of this binary source is VERY long, and I looked for ways to improve this.

To remember, the Full Slipstream setup duration is 23 minutes and 19 seconds:

But, this ISO includes all the “CoreServerMUI” language MSP files:

I thought keeping only the one I need : “en-us” and “fr-fr”, I could earn something:

Setup duration is very similar: the “Light” Slipstream setup duration is 23 minutes and 21seconds:

Bad news: duration is the same …. more than 23 minutes in either case…

Good news: 237,340 KB space is earned…

... so I keep the light one (waiting for the SP2 slipstream release)

    Hi there

    Was just wondering if you have had any problems with MOSS SP2 not actually fully installing using slipstream build. For some reason it fails to install some features and i end up having to go back and re-install SP2. Im only slipstreaming WSS sp2 and MOSS sp2 into the updates folder, do you know if i need the SP1 binaries or infrastructure update aswell?

    Kind regards
