XP SP3 Integrated Images on MSDN & Technet!


Recommended Posts

Can this be downloaded from a torrent and installed legally if one (read: me :D ) has a legit XP key? It should work (right?), but is it legal? Because wouldn't this be like slipstreaming SP3 into my gold XP disc?

Yes it will work, and yes it's legal.

is there no 64bit sp3?

No, and there won't be until Server 2003 is updated.

First one is the retail one... and second is the vol license. You can hover it w/ the mouse and see the "vl" in the filename of the second one.

Yup, just checked the MD5 and SHA-1 of the leaked ISO I downloaded over a week ago, and it's definitely the same exact file.

Since I am only seeing "Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3 (x86) - CD (English)" on MSDN

Can I assume that do to the cd-key changes, this one ISO can be used with OEM, VLK and Retail keys?

Ahh no I see what they did, they have 2 copies on their but neither is labeled Retail or VL.... hmmm.

It's been available for a while now...

Yeah man, posted ALLLLLLL the way back on May 2nd 2008. That WAS a long while ago, wasn't it?

is there no 64bit sp3?

Windows XP x64 is actually Windows Server 2003.

Windows XP x64 != Windows XP

I'll sit back and wait until it hits WU :). Not a big need to update.

Does anyone know when the VLK versions hit licensing.microsoft.com?

:rolleyes:

The 1st hash you posted is from the standalone Service Pack, the 2nd hash is from the slipstreamed ISO.

Download them from MSDN or Technet and you won't need to be concerned about the hash codes (you know what you are getting). But wait! 99% of people downloading from some God only knows P2P site think because the hash code is the same, no viruses have been added. Good luck!

hash codes are reliable... changing a single byte in the file would result in a complete different hash.

AFAIK , no one is able to create an ISO with all hash the same & size the same,

while filling the ISO with junk.

Are you saying that an image with the same SHA1 can be faked?

Don't be so naive. If you download scene releases from a private source, there is no need to worry about viruses. :shiftyninja:

Well, these 99% know their sh*t. :cool:

But I see where the real problem is. You - obviously - don't understand what a "hash" is. It's not the stuff you smoke!

Here are 2 wikipedia links for your reading pleasure:

That guy is right, hash codes are a sham! You wouldn't want to download the wrong horsie porn vid because of a hash collision, would you? CRC? Cyclic my ass! >=\

LoL. Some of the comments here are simply dumb. Once the SHA-1 hash is the same, it is the EXACT SAME FILE. It's that simple. It can't be "faked" (I'm talking about SHA-1 of course. MD5 can be faked, but only without keeping the same iso directory tree and with a LOT of math work). Don't be lame.

Could someone suggest a good SHA-1 app (preferably GUI) for Windows?

Some people just don't get sarcasm. Watch more horsie porn.

Edit: Btw, it is practically impossible to fake a hash code (depends on the hash algorithm, but even so,it's impossible). It would take much less effort and time to just punch everyone on the planet.
