Adding language pack after XP Service Pack 3

By Mose@mtsd ·
I work at a school with a laptop program. All students have a laptop. Some students take Mandarin and we have to load the Asian languages to XP.

The problem we are having now is, we updated our XP - Sp2 to Service Pack 3. Now when we go to add the Languages it asks for Windows XP with SP 3 CD. We only have Windows XP w/ SP2 CDs and we used the download of SP3 for the update.

I downloaded the ISO for SP3 but that does us no good because it wants the CD that has Windows XP w/ SP3.

Please help. Has anyone else had this issue, or know how to get around this?

use one of your XP SP2 CD's and slipstream SP3. Or uninstall SP3 and then install the language pack, and install SP3 again.

Download nLite from here

And Install then copy the contents of the SP2 CD to a Temp Folder on a HDD and the use nLite to merge the SP3 ISO and the SP2 Install Media into a Slipstreamed SP2 Install Disc.
