  • Extract from a slipstream

    Iíve been using nLite to slipstream my XP Pro. Iíve inserted drivers, tweaked setting and set it up for an unattended install. I also inserted SP3. Which brings me to my question, I no longer want SP3 and in its place I want SP2. Is there any way to extract SP3 from a slipstream and insert SP2 in its place? I would think if you can insert, you should be able to extract! Sound logical to me. Anyone out there know of software that will accomplish this?

    I do not believe slipstreamed media has any rollback info embedded in it.

    If it does offer rollback, you'll see that option in "Add or Remove Programs" after installing the slipstreamed OS.

      Got to agree with Rick. There is no rollback. The only way you can fix it is to Slipstream SP2 onto a pre SP2 XP CD and install it from there.

      What sort of problems are you having to want to revert back to SP2?
