How to slipstream SP 2 into Microsoft Office 2007

However, this will still save you a lot of time from installing Office and then running Windows Updates; especially if doing a mass deployment or fresh image.

Step 1

First create two different folders, one for your original office install and the second for your SP2 files. To keep things simply, lets just make them on your desktop, a folder called “Office07” and a folder called “SP2”.

Create Office Folders

Step 2

You now need to copy the contents of your original office install to the “Office07” folder on your desktop. If you have an ISO, simply extract that with either 7-Zip or WinRar; or if you have it on a DVD, stick that into your computer, browse to the drive, and copy the contents over.

Now simply copy the contents of the SP2 folder on your desktop to the UPDATES folder within the Office07 folder on your desktop (Office07\Updates). Then you are finished. When you run the setup for Office, (setup.exe) it will now install SP2 while it installs Office 2007.
