What you are referring to is called Slipstreaming. There is a good tutorial that you can read here. The author refers to slipstreaming sp2, but the same method can be used with sp3.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Slipstreaming in the tutorial is only meant to be used to slipstream the XP operating system and the SP3. The drivers will have to be installed afterward, you will need the CD with the drivers, or download them. All other applications, Firefox, Gameplayer, updates..., will have to be installed later.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Drivers can be included in a slipstreamed installation disk, this is done for example with SATA drivers when installing XP onto a SATA drive, which XP will otherwise be unable to see. There's little advantage slipstreaming other drivers, as it 's just as much fiddling integrating them into the slipstream as it is to install them, and if one manufacturer issues an update your slipstream is out of date.

all the required drivers for system >>> latest versions??? do u hav any links??


What system is it for?

Since you have an HP system...what you seem to be asking...amounts to a recovery/restore disk, IMO...or an image of your existing system (made by using the appropriate software).

Such cannot be installed on any system other than the one on which all this came installed...you cannot use the license, O/S, driverr, etc. from that system...on a different system.

<<can i do it for the same pc in which i am working??>>

Not sure what you mean...if the question is whether you can create a copy of your system as it is today...by whatever means...and use that on the same system at some point in the future...the answer is Yes.

It's the licensing...which is the determining factor for determining whether an O/S install can be made on a system.

AFAIK, you can install the same version of XP any number of times...on the same system...as long as you have a valid license for one install. I don't see the value in doing such, but it seems possible.

If I were you...I would contact HP and ask for a set of Recovery disks applicable to my system.

I would (upon receipt of same) delete all partitions on the original hard drive...and use the recovery/restore disks to install XP, following the directions provided for using same.

I would purchase a second hard and install same.

I would copy the data files from the original drive to a partition I create on the second drive.

It's your system...you've been doing what you thought best...I've suggested what I would do, I can't reasonably do more than that.
