Well...considerations vary, according to whom the manufacturer of the system is...versus whether it's a custom/self-built system.

If a system made by Dell, HP, etc...follow their instructions for what needs to be done before installing SP2 and/or SP3.

You can use nLite to slipstream.

You will need files from your CD, SP1 or SP2...and SP3.

If SP1 was on the CD, you would only need to add in the SP3 download.

It's an ms cd, so I'll have to slipstream either sp1 or sp2 and then slipstream sp3 and then burn?

http://www.winsupersite.com/This site from Paul Thurrett contains slipstreaming from XP Home tp XP3 -
This area should have his slipstream instructions -
It seems virtually the same as the noted one you refer to -

Hmm...yes, I guess that's what is best...SP1 or 2 first...then take the result of that effort and slipstream SP3 into it.

Then burn the CD.

@ hamluis
This is for slipstreaming a standard XP CD to SP2 , then you can move to XP SP3 afterwards it you are not sure -
You will find that XP SP1 is in a standard XP CD if you have all the standard updates - You then need to add the updates to the SP3 when finished -
Thank You - :thumbsup:

Can the above be done with Windows Vista Ultimate as well?

I don't know anything about Vista.

Although I have it, I have never really used it for anything other than an initial look.

In fact, I've done more with Win 7 than I ever did with Vista...I kind of leapfrogged over Vista :thumbsup:.
