    I get this error when I try to slipstream the service pack into my d:\cdroot directory. I dunno what could be wrong...all the files are there.

    Have you got the i386 folder setup & ready? Could you explain what you have done so far?

    ok...here is what i did so far...

    1. Created a folder called XP on my D:\ drive
    2. In the D:\XP folder i created 3 subfolders called cdroot, xpboot, and xpsp1.
    3. Issued D:\XP\xpsp1_en_x86 -X at the run box and told it to extract the service pack to D:\XP\xpsp1
    4. Copied the entire XP cd to D:\XP\cdroot....Properties of the folder are 499 MB on disk....6491 files and 134 folders. This is XP Professional Corporate Edition by the way
    5. Went to run and issued D:\XP\xpsp1\update\update.exe -S:\D:\XP\cdroot
    6. And it gives me the error

    :(

    Empty xpsp1 & try this from the run box.
    D:\XP\xpsp1_en_x86 .exe /U /X:D:\XP\xpsp1_en_x86
    That's the run command I have.

    That a D not a smiley face.
    X : D without the spaces.

    This is the final command I have.

    D:\XP\XPSP1\UPDATE\UPDATE.EXE /S:D:\XP\CDROOT

    Don't know if - or / makes a difference.

    The guide I am using is here. It is for Easy CD. The one for nero is close by.
