    The Dell disc probably has other updates slipstreamed into it as well as SP1a. You can only slipstream SP3 into a "clean" disc, which means it is a base Windows disc or a base Windows disc with only another service pack integrated and nothing else.

    I'm just plain lazy. The same thing is here: http://www.helpwithwindows.com/WindowsXP/Slipstreaming_Windows_XP_Service_Pack_3.html

    Wonder where I can get a "generic" OEM XP1 install disc. Have a legit OEM key.
