    Code Block

    signature="$Windows NT$"

    d1 = \I386
    d2 = \cmpnents\starter\I386

    ProductType = 4

    MinimumMemory = 67108864

    DestinationPlatform = i386

    Hi Ismail,

    We do not recommend creating custom slipstream integration on N skus. /integrate switch will not work for integrating XP SP3 CD with the N RTM media. But we do release N slipstream SP3 media through official channels.

    Hi Ismail,


    Thanks for reporting this issue with XP SP3.

    We acknowledge it as a defect with SP3 RC1 and would be fixing it.

    the marked file doesnt exist if slipstreamed on sp2 professional cd.

    the file must be win51ip.sp2 or the lines must deleted.

  • hi

    so, let start again Smile


    i produce my prior posting Wink



    i would test it with my home edition without N.

    i have changed the name WIN51IC to WIN51NIC and also done with WIN51NIC.SP2


    it has been succesfully integrated but then if i boot it comes the error message:


    please insert the disc labeled with

    Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 -CD

    in drive A:


    the txtsetup file in /i386/inc must be corrected to


    spcdname = "Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3-CD"
    spcdtagfilei     = "\win51Nic.sp3"



    original from txtsetup:

    Code Block

    spcdname = "Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3-CD"
    spcdtagfilei     = "\win51ic.sp3"



    then the N edition doesnt create WIN51NIC.SP3 !!!

    win51ic.sp3 was also not created. just for your information. Smile

  • i have change this lines in txtsetup and layout.inf and it never shows the "please insert... " message.

    i also added win51nic.sp3 to the root.


    Code Block

    cdtagfile     = "\win51nic"

    cdtagfilei     = "\win51nic"

    cdtagfilem     = "\win51mc"

    boottagfile1     = "\disk101"
    boottagfile2     = "\disk102"
    boottagfile3     = "\disk103"
    boottagfile4     = "\disk104"
    boottagfile5     = "\disk105"
    boottagfile6     = "\disk106"

    spcdname = "Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3-CD"
    spcdtagfilei     = "\win51nic.sp3"




    after eula when it will copy files to the disk it stops with the error:


    the sif file is corrupt or not avail.

    value 0 in the line [sourcedisksfiles]

    with the key "".

    the installation can not be continue. press F3  to abort..



    i had no chance to make it run via slipstream method (winxp home edition N)

    i have now slipstream my xp source (not n edition) with sp3 and copy the files from /i386/inc to my i386 source.

    but now it runs in an virtualmachine. .......

  • Hi Ismail,


    I think we might need to summarize the problem.

    As far as I understand, the problem you are siting is "slp install of WinXP hiome Edition N" fails.

    And you have debugged it down to a few entires in txtsetup.sif.


    Am I correct in the understanding? Or did I miss something?

    you are right.


    i make some entries to my home edition hence it installs winxp home N

    i have only changed the win51ic to win51nic, the integration of winxp home N runs successfull. see above.


    but it doesnt creates win51nic.sp3. while the txtsetup.sif / layout.sif is not correct (win51ic.sp3)

    when i boot it comes "please insert sp3 disc" while the win51nic.sp3 doesnt exist.


    i would say please check the winxp home/pro N again.

    the files for winxp home/pro N is not correct, so it fails during install.


    if i manually create the win51nic.sp3 on root and copy the whole /i386/ic and /i386/inc to my i386 source,

    the installation start successfull and could come to desktop.

    but i got during install about 20 messages that says some devices fails the WHQL.


    i think the N editions are not tested completely. there is much bugs in it.

    you or the technicians must test again on winxp N editions.




    note: you can ask whens unclear,

    my native language is turkish and speak very well german.


    edit: before i forgot: paste from log file


    Code Block

    2.015: CreateSlipstream: pszBuildTypeInfSection=ServicePackFiles.BuildType.IA.Files



    i have searched in update.inf and there is nothing about "buildtype.IA" :confuse:

    IC,IP, SEL,... are already exist, but what about IA ???

  • Ismail,


    I would forward the issue to the developer.

    Hi Ismail,

    We do not recommend creating custom slipstream integration on N skus. /integrate switch will not work for integrating XP SP3 CD with the N RTM media. But we do release N slipstream SP3 media through official channels.

    We do not recommend creating custom slipstream integration on N skus. /integrate switch will not work for integrating XP SP3 CD with the N RTM media. But we do release N slipstream SP3 media through official channels. 





    if N versions are not recommended slipstream and comes through official channels, .....


    * why its available to slipstream N skus with sp3 rc1 ?

    * why are the affected folders available on sp3 rc1 source ?

    * why are you using complex functions/conditions in updates.inf  (if wmp do this if non wmp)

    * you dont need extra dosnet/txtsetup files that not including strings for wmp....

    * how can it be tested then on N editions, when its not working


    i will not be the only one who tries slipstream on n editions, if it can be slipstream on N when sp3 gets rtm.

    it can causes more trouble to the users.


    therefore please remove the N strings from update.inf if the N SP3 skus avail only through different channels.
