nLite, Virtual Box 4.0 & Slipstreaming

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've got a full up-to-date (legal) copy of Windows XP SP3 running in Virtual Box as a guest VM in a Windows 7 host machine.

Since the only XP cd I have (Home Edition) is SP1 I wanted to slipstream SP3 to it. I had no problem doing this but then I though, it would be sweet to also incorporate all the updates/hotfixes so I wouldn't have to wait so long for Windows to finish updating another 100+ updates.

I downloaded Onepiece XP SP3 Post updates package and added it to the hotfix/patches/addons portion of nLite's setup. I then made all my adjustments, tweaks, and services.

It integrates everything ok but I get an error about 3/4 of the way through the 'Finalizing' stage of the nLite setup and it closes and fails to make the new ISO w/ integrations.

Can anyone offer any advice or has anyone experienced this? Does anyone know if maybe the Onepiece collection isn't the right way to go? I really don't want to integrate 100+ updates manually. Where can I get an updated update package?

TL;DR

Windows 7 Host machine -> Virtual Box 4.0 -> Running XP Home Ed. w/ SP3 (and fully updated) -> trying to create slipstreamed XP Home Ed. ISO using nLite & Onepiece packages fails during 'Finalizing' stage of nLite setup at 3/4 of the way through.

Need help!

It's not illegal to download windows xp from the internet, even from a torrent source or any other p2p service.

It would be illegal if you use it without a license.
So.. If I were you, I would just download and burn a xp home sp3 from the web and use your original serial when installing


as for the nlite crashes, I would say that it has something to do with xp being home edition and not the pro... - this is just a guess out of instinct

Hrm.. Thanks.

So you think it's because it's Home Edition and not Pro huh? That's weird.

Lot's of wierd things are related to windows' versions

When XP first came out (or maybe vista?) there was a version that wouldn't let the user to open more than 3 programs at a time... lol
can you imagine? Why...!??!
I always figure my grandma looking at the computer lost with 10 app opened, but I can also imagine her angry because she can only have email (browser), messenger and her solitaire game opened at once...

As for 7... Why do I have the most expensive version? Because I wanna be able to change the languages... and.. yes... no other version let's you do so...

since XP home is made for home usage, not pro usage (HA!), I bet it treats you like a retard, so if you are the user and you are trying to do something other than look at the screen and drool at it, it won't let you, because you are doing it by mistake

Interesting theories there, but perhaps there is a bit of truth to it.

I was able to successfully make a Windows XP Pro slipstream. I'm going to have to go back and do another one though because I skipped through most of the custom settings / tweaks.

So, you think it worked this time because it was pro or because it lacked tweaks?
Let's find out when you are done

Nope not because of tweaks (at least I think so) because I ran another one with it tweaked the way I wanted it. So maybe it is a Home Edition thing... odd none the less!

I feel good because I was right!


Now, IMO I would't call this odd, but a disrespect with the costumer...
