  1. '-s' is the argument for old version of update.exe. Microsoft do not allow you to run update.exe directly for new hotfixes/updates. You'll have to run the integrate argument directly from the hotfix/update download. WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe /integrate:<XP source path> I don't know if nLite use the same method. Even though i use nLite but i don't 'trust' the built-in slipsteam funciton so I do it manually.
  2. This question hasn't been raised before or at least I can't find a solution to my problem. If any user use East Asian fonts (Simplified/Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean), one will install the fonts/IME through Windows XP Regional and Language Options, Control Panel applet. However the fonts provided aren't designed for ClearType. Thankfully Microsoft release the fonts for XP available for download recently. The fonts are set to be default renderer for East Asian characters in Windows Vista and Server 2008. I have downloaded and installed all of them. Here is then the problem. Windows XP IME default is to render East Asian characters with the old non-ClearType fonts. I wanted to set the new ClearType fonts as default for my systems so that I do not have to configure application individually (browsers for example). Is there any way? The closest hint i can get is to edit the registry those under this tree HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\MIME\Database\Codepage\*. Thanks.
  3. You can't. You need a standalone disc of XP Pro and Home. There's no way of combine the 2.
  4. There was by boooggy. Unfornately it has been stop. Anyway, I vote for nLite + Win2K3. Never reinstall for 2 years straight and it runs better than XP (at least for me). With XP, I have to reinstall every 6 months due to some crappy problems. Moreover Win2K3 SP2 is the newer service pack around, so lesser updates.
  5. Yup, x64 slipstream on x64 OS.
  6. I don't mind as long as the software is stable. Anyway, many applications already require .NET Framework e.g. CCleaner. So I don't see any problems with it.
  7. Microsoft hasn't released the updates on Automatic Update yet. Why getting paranoid over this?
  8. Thanks a lot zedox! P.S. By the way zedox, the History section of the official site is down.
  9. Is it necessary to uninstall XPize 4.6 before installing this? Thanks.
  10. No, don't ever try to slipstream hotfixes of a different OS. You will most likely screw up the whole OS. Here's a similar package for Windows 2k3 done by boooogy. You can download it here. More info can be found here.
  11. I use Orbit, IDM and DTA. There's no best one out there, so play around with what attract you.
  12. Use nLite which is available in this forum.

  14. E6320. The performance is better (multimedia especially) and good overclockability. If I remembered correctly, E6320 also runs cooler at stock speed.
