Is it possible to extract SP2 from a slipstreamed version to use in slip streaming another (non SP) version of XP?

You should be able to with an iso buster. I can't remember the name of the one I used.

If that offline instaler was a viable option, I would have done so. Its simple not doable with my internet connection.




Grey_1, can you recomend a program?

Ehe, I couldn't remember the name of it:o ...I'm getting old! Lol, you should be able to extract the SP after copying the image to your hdd. tbh I'm not sure of the where and how.

Good luck..

Order the CD, it used to be free postage/packaging, but not anymore.

AFAIK, the service pack is actually integrated into the CD. Hundreds (or perhaps even thousands) of files have been replaced/updated. Therefore, in order to extract the service pack, you'd have to extract all of those files. This is not feasible IMO.

If the two copies of XP are the same version (i.e. Professional), you may be able to make a copy of the SP2 CD and then use the key from the SP1 (or earlier) CD to install it.
