  1. I had downloaded SP3 & everything seemed to be going smoothly until I tried to add the hotfixes & updates using autoupdater. I found what I believe to be the correct files & saved them to a folder & clicked on a file named apup which extracted the hotfixes to my pc. I don't think however that it saved them to a folder, instead installed them on into my os even though I didn't need them for that. I ran nlite again & tried pointing to the apup folder. It copied files or something & now when I try to go back to nlite to check what I have so I can burn the cd, I get this message & I can not go any further. "Detected unfinished nLite operation". "Don't reuse broken installation." Please copy a clean Windows installation & re-do the process." click ok. progrom closes out. I am totally lost & have no clue what to do next. If I could just get back to where I can burn a copy of the Windows installation files with SP3 I would be happy to download the hotfixes the old fashion way. I don't think I am geek enough for this stuff. My new upgrade parts will be in tomorrow & I wanted to have a headstart on getting SP3 added to my old XP Pro so it would take so long to update everything. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.
  2. Thanks for the SP3 download info. I got it. Now I am trying to find where the hotfixes & updates are stored on my computer. I am sure they are somewhere in the windows/system folder, but I haven't found them. Are they hidden? What is the directory I should look for?
  3. Hi Newbie here! I am trying to make an XP Pro slipstream disc with SP3 & cannot seem to find SP3 to download. Here is what I have tried so far: In the nlite program it gives me the choice to select the service pack for integration which I tried, but sp3 is not listed. So I chose the Windows XP from the official online location, which takes me to: Windows XP Service Pack 3 Network Installation Package for IT Professionals and Developers Brief Description This installation package is intended for IT professionals and developers downloading and installing on multiple computers on a network. If you're updating just one computer, please visit Windows Update at http://update.microsoft.com . Which I am only using a single pc. Then I tried from the microsoft update & it searches my computer & lists the updates I need, which SP3 is not listed (I already have it on my pc). I tried to manually find the download & I keep going around in circles. Is there a easier way to download just SP3? I could use the sp3 that is already on my pc, but I don't know where to file the file & I am not sure if I should use it since I am upgrading my mobo, cpu, ram,HDD & PS. Would SP3 be different for my old system by being tied to that mobo etc? If I can use my existing SP3, where do I find it on my computer to add to the slipstream install? Also will I run into the same problem for hotfixes & other updates? Thanks for the help, sorry I don't know how to do this, but slipstreaming is all new to me.
