Hi,
My PC operating system is a genuine copy of Windows Home Edition XP SP2, updated a while back to SP3 and kept up to date via Windows Update. I came across an article on Google on slipstreaming an SP2 installation disc with SP3. Thinking that this was a good idea and would simplify any future reformats I decided to attempt it. I followed the instructions very carefully and it all goes to plan until I come to integrate the downloaded SP3 folder to the XP Home Edition SP2 folder when shortly after beginning to extract the files I get a pop up saying the files are corrupt. I have now downloaded 5 separate instances of SP3 from Windows downloads of both types of SP3 file, the ordinary stand alone version and the larger one for developers but get the same result every time with the Files are Corrupt message a few seconds into the file transfer process.
I am pretty sure that all these downloads cannot possibly be corrupt and wondered if anyone here at these forums could tell me what is possibly happening and a possible work round. Thanks in advance for any help offered.

Hi :thumbsup:.

Although there are various ways of creating a slipstreamed copy of XP...by far, the easiest way is to use the nLite tool.

Here at BC, we also have a tutorial on how to create a slipstreamed version of XP: Slipstreaming Windows XP To Create a Bootable Windows XP CD or DVD - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/slipstreaming-windows-xp-to-create-bootable-cd/
