  • Slipstreaming SP1

    I have managed to get that part done, but apparently I have screwed something up during the process. I made the ISO and have made the CD bootable, but when it boots into the setup process it ask for a disk in drive A: labeled Windows XP Profession SP1. Unless I missed something, which is highly possible, where is this disk supposed to come from or what did I do wrong during the Slipstreaming process?

    Thanks.

    Did you extract the boot img from the original cd and use that as the boot img for the new one? I suspect this is where you might have made a mistake.

    I don't know how you did it but using Nero you need to make sure you turn off floppy emulation and set sectors to 4. I've done it this way a number of times without a problem.

      No, I didn't do that. I was following the instructions from Petri. I don't recall being instructed to do that. I used WinISO to make the .ISO and followed the instructions...i think. I used Roxio to burn the .ISO to CD.

        Maybe you did something wrong because following my article exactly works like a charm. It's been tested with all SP versions on W2K and XP.

          I'm not familiar with that method I'll have to read it.

            I think you have lost the booting files. You ahve to download them from the internet, they include booting for the CD rom.

              You can extract the boot files from you own XP D by using the little tool downloadable from here. http://www.nu2.nu/bbie/
