Slipstream SQL 2008 SP1

One new feature of SQL 2008 SP1 which I didn’t know about was the ability to slipstream a service pack right into the installation routine, like you can with operating systems.

This will make deployment quicker, faster, and less error prone. The full set of instructions can be found at this MSDN blog.

Slipstreaming was one of the new features that was introduced in SQL 2008 setup. Its surely very popular as it helps you save time for new setups and more importantly to avoid the knwon issues which can cause setup failures. I felt that the the steps to create the merged media were confusing for the newcomers.

I also saw few folks on the blogs wondering if there is a tool to automate the slipstreaming. Here is a tool which should assist you in creating the Merged slipstream media for SQL 2008.
