    i don't see why you wouldn't be able to slipstream it with nlite

    it will be really nice to install xp on system and not have to download a ton of updates

    That's gonna suck for me. I've been sitting on my lazy ass with the same Acronis image for over a year now.

    This means i'm going to have to do another install with service pack 3, so I can make an image of it.

    i'd be in your boat, but i just built a new c2d machine. shouldn't take too long though, you'll just have to save your documents. then reimage your drive, upgrade to sp3 and save the image.

    Yes, I did it using nlite about 3 weeks ago. Tested it on a VM, it worked fine.

    Slipstreamed it today into a WDS/RIS server. Worked no problem.
