Workaround: Build a Windows XP .ISO with the latest Updates already Included.
Here are the steps:
- Download and Install NLite (http://www.nliteos.com/download.html).
Download the latest Windows QFE Update Pack (http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=25&sid=0e99b3609cab6281aae7dd08dcd59bf1).
- At the time, the latest was named “XPSP3_QFE_UpdatePack_20131008.7z” (https://panaconsulting.egnyte.com/h-s/20140107/5e301181ec0c4414)
Mount your current XP ISO using Daemon Tools or similar.
- I grabbed mine from MSDN a while back (“en_windows_xp_professional_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_vl_x14-73974.iso”).
Use NLite to build a new .ISO with the updates pre-injected.
- Mine only grew 20mb with all of the updates.
If you need more directions on using NLite, let me know and I’ll expand on the tutorial. It’s pretty straightforward.
