Like the title says I am trying very hard in slipstreaming SP3 into my XP installation. This is the guide that I'm using: http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/xpsp3_slipstream.asp I have managed and successfully completed everything in this article. However when it comes time to boot the cd to test and see if it works. I placed the slipstream XP SP3 CD into my optical dvd rom drive, restarted the PC... after the POST screen all i get is a blank screen with a single blinking cursor on top and never moves from there. Its only after I take out the disc the machine is able to boot again. Did i do anything wrong in this slipstreaming guide? The ***ONLY*** thing I did different in this guide was that I used a DVD disc instead of a CD. The reason being is because Neo burning rom is telling me the contents can not fit into a typical cd. And so that is why I used a DVD disc. Could this be the reason why the problem is occurring during boot? Thanks for any help anyone can give.
