Slipstream Windows Easy



  • edited Jun 2009
    I've been trying to use "xp pro sp 0" adding in "sp 3" without any luck. I've been using Nlite for about 7 years now and every major service pack slipstreaming has workered out nicely. In fact I probably have made 6 or 7 versions of sp 2. All instal and work beautifully for years now. but after 10 tries with sp 3 I cannot get a full installation . It seems that every disk stops at [i'm guessing now, I stumbled upon this forum not prepared] mscrt.dll is missing and even if I try and pop in a previous disk to copy this file it fails. If I skip it the install will fail. Tried just acout every angle of simple program usage just sp 3 added/no extras, to unattended and even added drivers but for some reason I get the same outcome? Anyone else having this problem?

    I dont know why the windows corrupted after some days. Should I be concerned about this? Is it normal?

    Not normal... there are a ton of reasons as to why Windows becomes corrupt. Hardware issues, drivers, infected with nasties, corrupt patch, accidental system file deletion, to just abrupt power loss/ hard reset. Please create a new thread if you need help troubleshooting your issues. Oh and Welcome to Icrontic. ;)
