Hi folks! Many people suggest to include at least Chipset, Mass storage, CPU, LAN and WLAN packs in a customized installation cd of WinXP. Firstly, WLAN pack in Driverpacks website is almost 30 MB, instead nLite shows a 1 MB pack (from WinXP SP3). Can I just keep the last one (for cd space reasons)? Will I face incompatibility's problems with the latest PCs in this case? Secondly, DriverPacks provides about 12 MB of LAN and LAN-RIS drivers, while nLite shows 1,84 MB of LAN drivers. What if I keep the 1,84 MB of LAN drivers and then integrate the 12 MB packs? Will 1,84 MB be overwritten by the 12 MB packs? Or, more simply, do the 12 MB packs already include the older 1,84 MB pack (so I can safely remove the 1,84 MB)? Apart from the above mentioned driver packs, there are quite heavy driver packs on DriverPacks website. I don't think those packs are suitable for a 700MB cd with WinXP SP3, updates (including POS ready ones), hardware drivers and software (scanner, printers, internet keys, etc.). But as far as you know, would I need other driver packs if I wanted my WinXP correctly running on almost all the latest computers' hardware?
