Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2 for PC
Ross Smith has one of best methods available to create your self a slipstreamed Windows XP with SP3 installed and all the critical hotfixes, the only problem is that he stopped developing it in April 2009 so the list is about 40 hotfixes short, network installation SP3 version HERE
smithi's great script http://smithii.com/slipstream_xpsp3 please will you update it Ross ?
I also like using RVM Integrator v1.6.7 OR Autostreamer v1.0.30 to slipstream SP3 first to a folder containing the Windows XP SP2 I386 files this will give you a installation folder with all the SP3 files integrated.
Paul Thurrott's WinSupersite gives you a manual method if you prefer tutorial with screendumps HERE also how to exrtract the microsoft image file so that you can create your own bootable CD
Then download the Hotfixes EF2 list for use with using IDM from my public skydrive HERE is my exported list OR if you prefer use Windows Update Downloader and download one of the update lists, you must double click the ULZ file to install it into the interface, update lists HERE
N.B>these 2 won't slipstream, but they can be run after windows is installed:
There are other alternatives like hfslip (similiar to smithi's script) and nLite + WinUpdateDownloader I have had limited success with both of them however there are alot of Program Addons available for nLite like WMP11 and IE8 and a whole list from MSFN available HERE
