Yesterday, I made an ISO with the selections I thought would be best for my installations. When Windows starts, it immediately reboots (even though automatically reboot on error was disabled.) Since I'm not very familiar with nLite, I decided to make a disk with NO changes - totally stock - not removing any components. That didn't go so well, either. The updates were downloaded with Windows Updates Downloader. One update was reported as not being compatible. Windows Media Player reported as not be installable (I'm familiar with that issue.) .NET 3.5 did a funny install/rollback thing during the integration.
Is there a better site to download updates? Windows Updates Downloader puts the files in folders named "MS Security Products", "Non-Security Updates", "Optional Updates", "Service Packs", and "WMP 11 Updates." Am I correct that the contents off all folders except Service Packs and WMP 11 Updates should be included in the "Integrating hotfixes" page?
While I was typing this message, nLite just threw up, "[path]\wlsetup-all.exe - This is not expected type of hotfix." Where should it have been placed? I assume that's Windows Live Essentials, which I really don't want to install anyway.
If someone will kindly help me understand some of these basics, I'll take another run at building an ISO. [Edit: Question removed to avoid confusion.]
I did successfully slipstream SP3 into XP in 2009, but things are not going so well at the moment.
