SP3 question...not about slipstream though

4 posts in this topic

I've read several discussions about slipstreaming sp3. If the slipstream has issues, why wouldn't installing it after not have problems too. Just wondering because I was thinking about installing it on my PC. Are there any problems with installing it with Media Center 2005? I read the full download's details and it said to use the window's update site for Media Center. Is this valid or can anyone vouch for using the full install?

Thanks for replies ahead of time.

You cannot slipstream SP3 onto the MCE disks.... You have to install it post installation.

As long as you are using XP home or pro and slipstreaming SP3 is really good for your system. (Also likely to be the last official SP for XP)

Thank you for the reply. I was not asking about slipstreaming. I wanted to know if the post installation caused any problems. Also, can I use the full install or should I use the window's update.

Installing SP3 onto MCE works just fine from my experience, but the Windows Update version of SP3 on MCE doesn't seem to install properly. I figure that installing SP3 simply detects what needs patching and leaves the rest alone.
