Is you're trying to apply the standard retail SP2 update to a modified OEM install disc. That isn't going to work so well, and you'll need to download the SP2 update from the computer manufacturer's website, if they still have it.

The site I used and found to be flawless in the instruction -- except for one item is:

http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sp2_slipstream.asp

In one of the steps it mentions the file "Microsoft Corporation.IMG" file that is going to be used and I don't think the instructions say that the program (ISO Buster if I remember correctly) is going to change its name because the name isn't compatable with the OS. Don't worry that it gets changed.

Thanks to all for your help,Slipstreaming did not work,but burning the service pack 2.exe with img burn onto a cd did and I just applied it at the appropriate time.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
