XP SP2 tested?


Recommended Posts


The slipstream works flawlessly.

I applied it using XPCREATE to WINXP PRO w/ SP1, applied RyanVM's RAID driver package and she works great.

The only thing that I cannot find to add is the 3 updates, KB838909, 904, and 907. With those the installation cd would be complete.

Has anyone else had more luck than me?

· The pre-release versions of Windows Update are for testing purposes only.

· Please do not depend on the pre-release versions of Windows Update to keep your computer secure and up to date. If you are not a Windows XP SP2 Beta program participant, you can keep your computer secure and up to date by visiting the <http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/> site. If you are part of the Windows XP SP2 Beta program, please take extra care regarding computer security, as you will not be able to go back to the Windows Update V4 site.

For all Beta Testers

When you visit the Windows Update V5 RC2 site, the Windows Update client software on your computer will be updated to the RC2 version. After the Windows Update client software is updated, an error 0x800A01AE can occur. To avoid this error and complete install of the updated client, you must restart your computer. If you attempt to scan for updates without restarting your computer, you will continue to receive this error.

For Windows XP SP2 Beta Testers

If you are a Windows XP SP2 Beta tester, please download and install Windows XP SP2 (build 2120) before performing any further Windows XP SP2 and Windows Update V5 testing.

For All Other Windows Update Beta Testers

Windows Update beta testers using Windows XP (SP1 or RTM), Windows Server 2003 (RTM), or Windows 2000 (SP3 or later) should:

1. Go to <http://beta.microsoft.com>.

2. Sign in using your passport.

3. Click the Windows Update V5 link.

4. Accept the EULA. (If you have not already accepted the EULA, you must do so before advancing to the Windows Update V5 beta pages.)

5. Access the Windows Update V5 preview site. Follow the instructions on the BetaPlace Windows Update page at <http://beta.microsoft.com>.
