Slipstreaming SQL Server 2019 1


A while ago, I published a post to slipstream the SQL Server 2008 media. It is time to update it for SQL Server 2019.

Fortunately the setup.exe hasn’t changed much, so it is still a matter of:

  1. Copying the RTM ISO on a read-write filesystem
  2. Unpack the Cumulative update of your choice
  3. Amend the defaultsetup.ini file to indicate where the Cumulative Update files are to be found
  4. Rebuild the ISO with a tool such as OSCDIMG.EXE. This tool can be found in the Windows Assessment and Deployment kit

Here’s the code which can be also found on GitHub.
