    Do you have the filesize, md5 or better still the actual version shown after installing it? I downloaded SP3 from a link originally posted by Geoff in the other SP3 thread which turned out to be an earlier build .3264 and caused a few problems for me... Worth checking that your filesize/hash matches up with the official/latest one quoted later in the thread.

    There seems to be an issue when the slipstream is done on Vista

    Creation of SP3 slipstream media not supported on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) slipstream media may not be installed correctly when you use the "/integrate" option on a Windows Vista-based or Windows Server 2008-based computer

    I grabbed it from this site which provides a really good run down on SP3, things that are added and things that are likely to go wrong:

    I'm still (using todays final SP3 release) getting the 'Invalid serial number' error with Nlite slipstreamed CDs. Are there any other slipstreaming packages anyone can recommend?

    There are more reports appearing on the web that slipstreaming XP SP3 is a no go on Vista and Windows Server 2008, so you must create a disc using Windows XP!

    I have created a guide and can confirm it works. I am running XP SP3 as I am typing this.

    I have not tried the cd I made earlier, I will give it a try later.

    I did it that way years ago, but since then didn't see the point with Nlite et-al being available and easier to use.
    I shall try it tomorrow when I'm less busy.

    I've had this issue after downloading the integrated XP with SP3 ISO from Technet and swapping the i386/setupp.ini with a volume license one in PowerISO. It did ask for VLK, but would not accept ours. It also would not install without a product key, which I believe was one of the features Microsoft was touting about an integrated SP3 install.

    Frankly with some rather nasty bugs starting to come out of the woodwork, it might be worth waiting for a while, and continuing with Windows Updates to SP2.
