It just isn't worth the time to figure out why a problem exists as it is to change the procedure to see if different results are achieved.

Try creating a slipstreamed copy of XP with SP2 integrated. First download a fresh copy of sp2.

Then follow these instructions.

The reason that I want to do it this way is because of my 100% success rate with this technique. I sure wish that you could download from AutoPatcher.com still, but MS killed the Project in August. That was the greatest 340mb ever downloaded for a sysadmin.
