I am trying to build an XP pro cd with sp3 slipstreamed into it.

One attempt at the integrate last night resulted in a crash where i had to reboot. I can figure that out.

My question is:

Will the slipstreamed cd work the same way as the original cd with options for a full install, repair install and recovery console or is it simply a full install?

Thanks in advance for any info. Building the slipstreamed CD is going a bit slower than I expected and I don't want to spend the time right now if it won't allow me to do a repair installation.

If done correctly, yes. The slipstreamed CD should effectively operate like new a new SP3 CD. However, I believe the pre-install code will be unchanged i.e. identical to the original CD. It's mostly the DLLs, etc. that are changed when a servicepack is released.
