    There must of been a slip up somewhere as the ISO version detects the issue so there must be something missing in the downloaded version that causes it to add the wrong components.

    Yes make sure that you have to have service packs checked in Products and Classifications otherwise you only get updates and hotfixes.

    Out of interest, how are people planning on deploying this?
    So far I've installed it in one suite and plan to leave it a while to bed in and make sure we have no major issues with it that didn't crop up in our earlier testing.

    I'm thinking of manually installing it in the main suites (5 rooms) and then using our existing WSUS server to pick up all the other classrooms (One PC per room) and offices.
    Having never done a full on SP over WSUS before, I'm somewhat wary of it as it's a pretty big update and their is many things that could cause the install to fail or go wrong (i.e people ignoring the "Do not switch off your PC" prompt or in the case of it installing in the background, a PC crashing or erroring for whatever reason) I've seen the results of a borked SP before and it's not pretty.

    As for our laptop trolley's, I suppose they will have to be done by hand as if I recall, installing a service pack requires laptops to be plugged in rather than battery power, although I'd be extremely wary of doing it via battery and over wireless anyway.

    It's been so long since the last Windows client SP so I'm a little rusty on this :P, when SP2 came out we only had 90/100 PC's mainly based around suites so it wasn't a real problem, now having nearly 500 all other the place, it gets a bit tricky....

    currently putting it on all new machines as they arrive and any old ones that need rebuilt.

    Sent it out via wsus to a test group of about 10 desktops and laptops.

    Wont do the main computer suites until the summer, Ill just send it out via wsus and let them autoupdate.

    Will probably do admin one at a time over the summer manually too. Theres only about 10 computers down there anyway.

    I hadn't checked the service pack box so thats why mine hadn't come through! However think I might one manually on the oldest machine before I tick that box.

    I've updated a WDS image and will be deploying it to new builds only for now, i'll think about deploying it down the road. As it's mainly a collection of hotfixes and no massive updates like IE6 for SP2 i'm not in a rush.

    If you didn't build it from a HP image then you'll be fine, it's HP's fault for being lazy and using the same image for systems with Intel and AMD processors in.

    That's all very nice, but what if you've already installed SP3 and are getting continuous reboots? The patch is useless. Microsoft should of pulled SP3 and created an SP3a in my opinion. This'll still catch a lot of people out!

    Yep it will still cause issues. I imagine if you update through windows update that it will be ok.

    I would of thought Windows Update (or Microsoft Update as it is now), will detect the HP image and encourage you to patch first, then install SP3. This would work. Too little, too late though

    The main problem is that it's not wide enough spread for MS to release an SP3a especially as it's XP and not Vista. It would need to affect millions of boxes before they did that, i still haven't seen this on any of our AMD boxes but i'm sure it's causing a few headaches. As ever with SP's it's a case of test test test.
