andrewcrawford, That's exactly what I was trying to do. I have a fresh, clean copy of SP3 and I'm trying to get everything installed via SVCPACK.INF. However, the only way I got it to work was integrating IE7 and WMP11. To reiterate, I had to integrate and svcpack for it to work. My goal is just to use SVCPACK by itself. I hope I cleared that up. If you have any suggestions, please let me know! Thanks! - ET
@vectra: Of course I'll do the same! From what I've been reading, this is such a helpful community! I didn't want to do it... I avoided it like the plague!!! But when there's a goal in mind and the walls are closing in, you have to move forward! I had to use other methods to slipstream Windows Media Player 11 and Internet Explorer 7. So here is how my WINXPSP3 setup to have zero updates, using mostly GreenMachine's awesome SVCPACK.INF. Step 1: Slipstream Windows Media Player 11 I actually didn't have to do this, but since I was slipstreaming IE7, I figured I seen Windows Media Player 11 Slipstreamer so much, that I'd give it a try. I knew that this program had one task, and as I expected, it did it well! Step 2: Slipstream Internet Explorer 7 I didn't find a program called IE7-slipstreamer or something like that, but nLite supported IE7. So I reluctantly showed nLite where my source was, and slipstream that one update to my files. Went through with no problems. Note: From this point, I installed my fresh copy of WINXPSP3 with IE7 and with WMP11. The install went very smoothly. And like my last post, I copied all the hotfixes (which there were a lot more for some reason), and downloaded them all. As before, I put them in the same order as Windows Updates. Now let's continue with our steps. Step 3: Copy all your hotfixes into the SVCPACK folder I hate this part. I copied and renamed each file. I don't think you have to rename it, but I'm kinda a neat freak in that sense. Anyway WMPSlipstreamer and nLite should have generated a SVCPACK folder and a SVCPACK.INF in your I386 folder. You may have to "expand -r SVCPACK.IN_". Step 4: Modify your SVCPACK.INF Add all those updates to your SVCPACK.INF. Step 5: Go! Go! Go! Install Windows XP SP3 Need I say more?

The updates went through without a hitch using GreenMachine's method. But I don't want the members on this forum to give up! Find out how to get WINXPSP3 completely updated straight from SVCPACK.INF. That's my dream, but I have used nearly a week of freetime solely on this project. I must move on! But I hope I helped this community in a small way by registering to this forum and sharing my experience. Attached is the image of my zero updates (OK, there's one software update which is Windows Desktop Search, which I absolutely hate). Take it easy and good luck! - ET "Sanity, is that you? ... Finally!!! I thought I'd never see you again!"
Dear Members, I have tried doing exactly as GreenMachine has been doing on this wonderful thread. My plan of attack was to  install a fresh copy of Windows Service Pack 3,  run all the updates on fresh install,  go through windowsupdate.log and download all the updates and  svcpack them in the order Microsoft installed them on my machine. I'm happy to to say, that I have 99% of the updates working! I used the "smoke and mirrors" to get DOTNET20 working, but it won't work for the newest IE7 update (KB950759). I've been pulling my hair out because I have no idea where to turn now! I searched google, and they are all saying try nLite. I tried it, but it would restart my installations for some strange reason. Besides, I like knowing exactly what has been modified on my image. Control issues I guess . Anyway, I'm posting the newest (almost completely working svcpack.inf) which was updated today (11 Aug 2008). If you guys can help me on the final update before QCHAIN.exe, that would really help me out!
