  2. Yes, I slipstreamed SP2 in XP x64 SP1 using nLite without any problem
    about 2 years ago. You may have a corrupted SP2 file.

    Iv downloaded the SP2 package on both my desktop and laptop computer, both
    files have given the same error.

    This is a OEM cd im using though, not retail boxed. Could that be the
    problem ?

  4. The copies I have are both OEM and I had no problem slipstreaming SP2
    into it.

    Have you tried just slipstreaming and then burning a bootable disc?

    I cant seem to integrate the SP2 with SP1. I keep getting this error. It wont
    complete the copy of files to the i386 folder.

    I guess i could contact Microsoft directly about this, and speak with a
    professional but they wont provide support unless you pay them.

  6. Are you doing this on an XP x64 system? If I remember correctly I tried
    doing it on a 32-bit XP and it wouldn't complete, so I tehn did it on an
    XP x64 system and it worked.

    How are you trying to integrate the SP2?

    I pointed it to the root directory of where I had copied the XP CD to
    rather than to the I386 directory, try pointing it to C:\XPCD.

    That didnt work ether. Im begining think this version of windows is just not
    compatible with this slipstreaming stuff. Iv looked allover the net. Iv
    havent seen anything like this.

    When i purchased this cd it was labeled SP2B, but after i installed it i
    only had SP1 on the system. I had to update the rest.

  13. That server was unavailable when I tried to see whatever it is that you were
    trying to show us. Could you summarize it in words?

    <cmd_output OS="W7">
    Non-authoritative answer:

    C:\>telnet 80
    Connecting To not open connection to the host, on port
    80: Connect failed

    I don't know the answer to your question but I wondered why you were
    stopping at XPsp2. Then I found that instead of there being an SP3 for XP
    X64 somehow W2003sp2 can be used. Perhaps you should be trying to
    slipstream with it instead? ; )

    (Microsoft search for
    xp sp3 x64 2003 sp2

    1 Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 can also update x64 versions of Windows
    XP Professional.

    Actually I don't think it's clear from the migration chart there that this
    gets you anything more than XPsp2 X64. I guess you would have to use the
    MBSA XML descriptions of both updates to figure out which is more current.

    Good luck
