Hello,

I've asked this question before some where else, but I don't remember where, or if it was even answered.

I've got an old XP Pro OEM install CD that I've used on my personal computers for years, but the problems is that it installs SP1.

I remember being told how to make an ISO of my install CD, then setting it up so that the CD will work with the same Key, but it'll install SP3 instead of SP1. Now for the life of me I can't find the information again.

Anybody post here that could help me out?

Thanks :thumbsup:

-Chris

I've got an old XP Pro OEM install

If you read the post on slipstreaming...

Unfortunately, for this step you can not use an OEM CD provided by your computer manufacturer (Dell, HP, etc).

So you cannot use your disk to slipstream i cant either and i find that when i do reinstalls people dont have disk that are fully updated either. My only XP disk is a Gateway OEM disk version 1.0. So i have to install like 8 years worth of updates when i reinstall XP on my own computer but i use other people's CD's when reinstalling for them. I actually keep a flash drive with the Service Packs on it. :thumbsup:

I also have a 7 year old Dell, which came with OEM SP1.

My memory isn't brilliant, but I'm pretty sure that I used NLite to create an SP3 slipstream disk
and have subsequently used it to get to the recovery console; haven't needed to reinstall yet.
(Hopefully it will work for that too).

I did, however, create an SP2 slipstream disk for a different system (another OEM) and it did install
Windows successfully on that one.

The tutorial I used was something along these lines:
