    I have a Windows XP Pro SP1 CD, and tried to slipstream it, and got this error "This service pack cannot be integrated into a destination that also has integrated software updates" I googled around and apparently according to this page http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/pcmag_recovery, you can't slipstream an SP1 CD, onyl an original XP disc. "You're trying to slipstream SP2 onto a CD that already has SP1. This process only works with the original version of Windows XP." Do I ahve any options apart from buying another copy of XP?

    Holy complicated Batman :)

    If im getting this straight through all that mess all I have to do is delete
    Delete C:\WIN_CD\CD\SUPPORT\TOOLS\DEPLOY.CAB, and replace it with the DLed one
    Delete C:\WIN_CD\CD\SVCPACK
    Delete C:\WIN_CD\CD\i386\SVCPACK.INF

    and then slipstream as normal?

    Also it says I should get a new SVCPACK.INF file from another XP CD, which I don't have, but then says I don't need to get the file, I assume not having it won' mess anything up?

    Yup. And you read it just like I did. You can also download the INF file from MS if you have access to a Windows box.

    Gooood Luuuck! ;)

    How exactally do I DL the INF file? I can't seem to find it?, and will it make difference if I don't replace it?
