Supported Operating Systems: Windows XP; Windows XP Home Edition ; Windows XP Home Edition N; Windows XP Media Center Edition; Windows XP Professional Edition ; Windows XP Professional N; Windows XP Service Pack 1; Windows XP Service Pack 2; Windows XP Starter Edition; Windows XP Tablet PC Edition.

Unless that has been updated, I don't think it's the true final build. Compare it against this info -

according to Adrian Kingsley

The download is 544MB and the MD5 hash (for those of you interested in such things) is 308245853e5b231343ee17b36ffda1e6. Final build identifies itself as Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp.080413-2111 : Service Pack 3).

Thanks tdinc for posting that useful info above ;)

Pretty sure MG has 043391FB959D5623BD42EA376452F203 which is RC2 still

judging by the images on that site you posted, whatever release he got has the pretty intro screens etc.. i wonder what the extra 200mb or so on the cd is?

if it identifies as
Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp.080413-2111

then thats what major geeks have (and i installed)

one difference being its not in an iso format (which technet's possibly is hence the 544mb size, maybe some other stuff included on the cd)
all i got was the WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe (316mb) no extras/autorun

Yes, the ISO has a DOTNETFX folder and basically looks like the SP2 disc that Microsoft sent out to people for free. You burn the ISO and you have an update disc.

yes thats theo one i have - the service pack is just the exe, anyone saying the service pack is 500meg plus is wrong, i have sliptreamed it into my xp sp2 disc and its about 50meg bigger - went from 624 to about 672meg, and it shows the same as in the pictures above, guessing gees has sorted it out now, as of yesterday they still had the rc2

The below results were a result of just slipstreaming with nLite without any other messing around:

Windows XP Pro SP0 + SP3 = ~629 MB ISO
Windows XP Pro SP0 + SP2 + SP3 = ~672 MB ISO

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
