SCCM SP1 Prerequisite Component Path

This is an interesting thing I learn from a good friend. It relates to my earlier post on how to pre-download the components before the installation. If you are applying SP1 the same will be asked and you will not be able to re-use the same components you used for the RTM version. Re-download everything again?!?! Fortunately there’s a better way and this I learned from someone just being lazy :P. An easier way is to have the old components in a folder, rename or delete the manifest file and then run setup.exe /download <path> to point to the existing folder which contains the old components. The wizard will then only have to download an addition 4 new components and the new manifest file. Running the command without first removing the old manifest file will give you an error.
