Sorry, yes. Take your time to get them in correctly.

Then proceed to Make ISO and it will compile an ISO for you, or just use the files you copied and it will have them slipstreamed in, with a log now in amongst the files of what you added.

Which did that USB flash you made use, files or ISO?

I'm still downloading some, but that's not my question.

I open the .rar file right? Or do I just slipstream it like that? Or extract and slipstream?

I didn't understand your question o.o

You need winrar to open a rar file. Attachment 41856

you'll need to extract files to browse to drivers

Here's what you used to make flash bootable I believe:

CompuPodia: Installing Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7 from USB (GUI Tool)

Does it use files or ISO?

When you slipstream the drivers in, it places them into the files you first start from, when you make the copy to load into Nlite.

So make a copy of your XP files onto your desktop, load those into Nlite, and later use those same files to create your flashstick.

I would still make an Iso in the final step, saved also to the desktop so you have it as a backup to extract files if needed (you can use Winrar to extract) or if you ever need to burn an XP CD for your netbook.

I'm hittin the sack here after SNL. Back around noon tmw.

There are two chipsets given on product specs page:

Mobile Intel® 945GSE Express Chipset (DDR2 400/533/667 MHz)
Mobile Intel® 82801GBM Chipset

Run this quick audit and see what chipset is in there: Attachment 41860

Look in the Device Manager for the exact name of the Storage Controller
You will want the one in the screenshot named the same.

Did any disks come with that netbook? Was XP originally on it?
