Have found two real problems when reinstalling from XP Pro Slipstream. Installed correctly, but .......... 1) Many of the installation files from existing Hardware/ software cds cannot be recognised, thus making driver re installations for general hardware rather tricky. No problem with normal XP Pro CD without slipstream loaded. 2) XP Pro "ASR" did not work ... instead of recovering backup as usual, it formatted all 9 partitions from 3 h/ds including one with backup secured ! Then asked where the correctly nominated backup was ! Now have backup also on DVD RW just in case. Anyone had similar problems ?
