I've successfully used nLite to slipstream harkaz's wonderful Windows XP Service Pack 4 (which comes with additional security tweaks) into my clean Windows XP SP3 install ISO. It is almost exactly what I need, thanks harkaz!
However, there are two issues:
(1) Upon installing and first boot, the built in Windows Update tells me that there's a bunch of POSReady 2009 updates (and a couple others). Is there a pack/addon to slipstream in those updates as well? I know of 5eraph's XPSP3 QFE POSReady Updates 20161108 addon for user_hidden's XPSP3_QFE_UpdatePack, but the thread says that addon is
Is there another to way do it?Intended only for use with user_hidden's XPSP3_QFE_UpdatePack.
BTW, poolside has posted the list of POSReady 2009 updates (and a couple others) that you get after a Service Pack 4 installation here.
(2) After installing from my ISO with SP4 slipstreamed in, I tried running Windows Update (and, later, Microsoft Update) via Internet Explorer 8. I was taken to a Windows Genuine Advantage check, which after a couple seconds took me to an error page saying my browser is "out-of-date". Even though I know there's a way to manually trigger Windows' built in Windows Update check, I prefer to also be able to use Windows Update in IE8. Is there a way to achieve that?
