roirraWedorehT Posted April 12, 2008 Share Posted April 12, 2008 (edited) I've searched and searched both manually and using the search function and can't find an answer to this question. Using the search function, "SP3" is too short a search term for it even in conjunction with other words, and I couldn't find an answer using popular build numbers either (5508, 5503, 3311...).Will XP SP2 installations that I've removed components from update to SP3 safely?I remember that it was said that with vLite and Vista SP1 that if components were removed that SP1 wouldn't install, so I didn't know if the same applied to nLite and XP.Thank you in advance.P.S. I realize that if I removed enough of some very important things from SP2 I'm sure SP3 would have problems installing, I'm just looking for the short answer without going into full details. Examples of removed components including System Restore service, Windows Messenger, MSN Explorer, Alexa ("spyware").Also, if it is necessary for me to test this scenario myself in VMWare Workstation with removed components from SP2 and the Windows Update SP3 (RC2 Refresh build 5508) registry hack, I can and report back here for others' benefit. Just let me know if I should answer my question my own self. Even if I do test the scenario myself I would like to know what the official response is.Thanks again.
