    I'm preparing a clean install XP SP3 (Slipstream CD, proved working) and then Unofficial SP4 EXE

    https://ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10321

    + Post-SP4 Update Pack (+ Possible KB4500331 2019 if not in update pack)

    In theory this will cut my install time down 60%.

    Putting in the post SP3 and WEPOS updates by hand is the thing that takes so much time. I never tried Unofficial SP4 before. Anyone know of it? or have experience? Thanks! :)

    I tested with success WindowsXP-USP4-v3.1b-NODOTNET-x86-ENU
    Description: Windows XP SP4 Installer WITHOUT .NET Framework installation.

    and PostSP4-May19-UpdatePack-harkaz-070619-v2.zip

    After install both you can go to add windows features in add and remove programs and install DONET

    I installed the version WITH .NET. over my SP3 Media Center Edition 2005 machine (last updated 2009):

    WindowsXP-USP4-v3.1b-x86-ENU.exe

    Install time: under 5 minutes then reboot.

    So even if you can't slipstream it really doesn't add any significant time to your installation.

    I installed the version with .NET because many XP apps require it.
