Help with creating windows xp sp3 fresh install disk

vbimport

#1

I have a full windows xp install disk with sp2. Can anyone help me or is there any way to somehow create or to freshly install windows xp with service pack 3 all at the same time? I don’t want to upgrade to sp3 I want to fresh install both together so please don’t recommend to just click on the sp3 icon because I don’t want to go that route. I did this on a friends computer and it created problems. Can this be done??? :confused:

They call that slipstream where you use something like nlite os to slipstream sp3 onto xp sp2 cd thus creating a xp sp3 cd. But that is only if M$$ will release sp3 to the public to download only then will you be able to merge sp3 to xp sp2 making it xp sp3 cd.


#3

But I just downloaded Service pack 3 from microsoft. Is this still beta?? if so after the actual full version can you please explain to me how to slipstreamwhat to do ?? I do have a little bit of knowledge so that may help a little.


#4

It’s still beta. See http://club.cdfreaks.com/f3/sp3-windows-xp-244044/ for more details. Go to http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=nlite&btnG=Google+Search for links to free download and info on using nLite which makes slipstreaming very easy.

WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe

if you open it with winrar you see most of the newer files with a datestamp of 4/14
build 5512


#6

That’s bulolshit that they add newer files but keep the same name for people to download claimimg it is the same file

thanks everyone I will check out nlite forwhen full sp3 comes out


#7

Wow!!! nLite makes it very easy I wish I could try it now. I just read the manual and nLite does everything for you except do the burn, even makes it bootable.
Does anyone know when the full version of Sp3 is coming out???

According to http://forums.g4tv.com/thread.jspa?threadID=32325&tstart=25 WinXP SP3 has the same RMS bug that Vista SP1 does, and it won’t be patched until June via Windows Update.

I think they are just stalling so people will have to switch to Vista and also if I read right it only affects the business software of which end users have no need for?? Sounds more fishy by the minute to me…only thing I know I had problem was with Device manager not working and volume properties in taskbar saying I had to have admin rights to use but I am logged in as Admin??? What gives? But I go to major geek and download that SP3 and install it and see what happens to device manager and volume taskbar.


#12

The best way to apply sp3 is a clean install, next best is a repair disk from booting to a slipstream disk

it’s not something you want to apply to a corrupted or damaged OS


#13

exactly I wouldn’t update to sp3 you got to fresh install use nlite very easy

bringing an old post back,
Using nlite, is there a way to include sp2 and sp3 into an original XP Home CD?
This is what I have.
Windows XP Home CD from 2001
Windows XP SP2 CD from 2004 (Microsoft mailed these to people who requested them.)
Windows XP SP3 (I have not downloaded the ISO, I’ll do this overnight. 544MB)

I searched the nlite forums, but all the hits I get for the sp2 CD are from a previous year, before sp3 came out.


#16

There is no longer a need to add SP2.
SP3 incorporates everything include in SP2.

Best to slipstream a disc without any Service Packs but there should be no problems slipstream SP3 into an SP2 CD. SP3 should just overwrite the necessary SP2 files.


#17

I asked if the slipstream for sp3 supported xp w/ no sp1, it does not for the upgraders

I received no answer from some mvp’s

I would do it as a 2 step process myself

xp >>> sp2 >>>sp3

Hi,[quote=Jon_J;2065894]bringing an old post back,
Using nlite, is there a way to include sp2 and sp3 into an original XP Home CD?[/quote]No need to integrate SP2 first and then SP3 since SP3 has all updates and fixes that are present in former SPs.

This is what I have.
Windows XP Home CD from 2001
Windows XP SP2 CD from 2004 (Microsoft mailed these to people who requested them.)
Windows XP SP3 (I have not downloaded the ISO, I’ll do this overnight. 544MB)
I would not use the ISO, but the Windows XP Service Pack 3 Network Installation Package for IT Professionals and Developers file instead.

I searched the nlite forums, but all the hits I get for the sp2 CD are from a previous year, before sp3 came out.
The method of integrating SP 3 is not different from integrating SP 2, so the guides also are applicable for SP 3 integration.

According to Microsoft SP3 requires at least SP1 for an inplace upgrade

that’s why I asked about slipstreaming, noone I have heard of has tried with a XP sp0 disk yet?
