Curious about slipstreaming

    I havent noticed this question so Ill ask. If you slipstream xp to sp1, then reinstall you will have the updated (xp1) version on your drive. Now if in the future, you decide you wanted to add service pack 2, how would the update recognize that sp1 exits, if there is no installation history of it. Will this cause any future problems?

    Thanks,
    Circuit

    It is updated to SP1. (I've only done a fresh install) Windows is now recognised as SP1 so there will be no problem upgrading again.

    Yes, a slipstream and fresh install didn't cause any problems at all.
