When you attempt to slipstream a service pack into your Windows installation media you receive the following error message:
Consult the Service Pack documentation for more details about supported integration scenarios.
The slipstream integration process subsequently terminates without making changes to your deployment share.
The redistributable media that you are using has been slipstreamed using QFE updates (not just Service Pack updates but regular patches as well). The Windows Service Pack integrator is unable to adapt to having updates in the install process which would clearly conflict with the new Service Pack version itself (for example you could not apply a RTM or SP1 update to an SP2 install).
To fix the problem, ideally you should attempt to locate a clean installation medium, however if all you have is the QFE integrated disc – such as the ones that Dell ship with many of their own systems.- the following steps will get you around the error.
- Open your Deployment share
- Open the i386 folder
- Delete the directory called:
- Locate and open the .inf file called:
- For every .exe referenced in the [SetupHotfixesToRun] section, perform a file search of the i386 directory for the file name (minus the .exe) e.g. Q306676.EXE search for Q306676
- Delete any files that come back as a result of the search
- Close SVCPACK.INF
- Delete SVCPACK.INF
You will now be able to slipstream integrate the Service Pack update.
