MrSinatra, what you have found is NOT a bug and again I ask you to change the thread title.
please... relax. i will change it if during the course of the thread i become convinced of that. i am certainly leaning that way, but i am not sure yet.
No one is saying you cannot add an SP with Vista running in another partition. What we are all saying is that you cannot build an XP ISO under Vista and slip an SP.
that [second part] would seem to be a false statement.
as i said, i took a dell oem xp pro sp2 cd and slipped in sp3 and my drivers into an iso. i did this using nlite on a [second] vista64 machine. i then burned the iso to cd and successfully installed xp to [the first] machine.
(i have two fairly new vista64 dell computers here, equal configs. i used the first one to build the penn state cd that failed in an install attempt on that same first machine, and i used the second one to build the dell oem cd that worked on the first machine)
There is a thread with many replies recently that discusses slipping more than one SP. At the very least it is space wasteful and not necessary. I go further and say it should not be done at all.
ok, i am happy to be corrected. i am surprised that u can do it via slipping and not direct in a live environment but i believe you, lets move on.
If you will read my first reply and the request for your Last Session.ini and respond, we may be able to determine what happened. Please attach the Last Session for your first and second attempt and explain about including one or more SPs. MS says you should include one SP after another, but they are talking about on a running (Kels live) system. Since you are slipstreaming, you only need ONE! We have been through this many times - you have not found an nLite bug. You may not like how nLite handles the situation, but executed properly, users do not have any problems. Enjoy, John.
i will try to find the correct sessions, i might have a problem identifying them, but again, I BELIEVE YOU and others when u say you only need to slip the latest SP, (ie. sp3). thats NOT the issue i am talking about when i say there may be a bug. please see my other posts, no need for me to restate what i said in them.
