Slip streaming Service Packs in Windows XP

Like most in IT I have a collection of ISO images and my WXP is SP2 which means every install is an update to SP3. So I have finally updated it after a few years. Here is how.

Copy your XP CD to your local hard drive (C:\XPoriginal)

Download XP SP3

Extract it to the local drive using the –x command line.

WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe -x:c:\XPSP3

Next, update the original media

cd \XPSP3\i386\update
update -s:c:\XPoriginal

Update the ISO file with WINRAR or similar and you are done.
