problem slipstreaming XP SP1


OSNN Senior Addict
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.

#3 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.


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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
