Hi, I downloaded a version of Windows DarkLite from here:
http://www.windowz.ru/index.php?newsid=1150275967
I was wondering if there is a version with SP3 integrated.
Any help?
Thanks!

Why not just (illegally) download it, then slipstream SP3 yourself? Something like xpsp3.exe /integrate:C:\XP ?

Wouldn't that mean that it wouldn't look like it does any more, since the reshacked files would be replaced with standard copies =\

I agree, this warez.

EDIT:
As as hounsell said, when installing this SP, all files are replaced with Standard copy's of SP3.
And the CD doenst work anymore/its just standard windows.

MANUAL INTEGRATING SP:

1)
Extract ALL files from the CD to 1 folder
Example:
C:\CD
--> i386
--> setup.exe

2)
Extract the bootsector of the disc with Magiciso or anyother program that can extract bootsector's

3)
Download SP3

4)
(THE NEXT STEPS REQUIRES FOLDERS WITHOUT SPACES!!)
Extract SP via this code or with winrar to folder SP
Code:
c:\SP3.exe /u/x:c:\SP


5)
Integrating files into your install folder:
Quote:
C:\SP\i386\update\update.exe /s:C:\CD

Now watch until it is completed.
Probaly the bar is full before process is completed.
The program will give a warning when its completed.

6)
Create new CD Image.
Copy all files from the CD folder to there.
(not the folder itself but all files/folder in it)

7)
Put the bootsector back in.

8)
Save it and burn if you want.
But test it in VPC/VMWare before you burn it, to save you a CD when it doesnt work.

9)
Delete the following folders and files from C:\ or location where you did this.
Example at c:\
Delete:
--> SP3.exe (300MB)
--> CD (folder and all of in it) (500MB)
--> SP (folder and all of in it) (300MB)
So that saves you 1GB or more (or less)

It is warez, but as I pointed out, you can't just integrate the SP3, as that would lose all the reshacked files.

I was editing my post.

Maybe a mod/admin should close this, because this is warez.

I didn't think it was warez, as it is someone's modded version of windows, but if it is, I am sorry I brought it up. I wasn't meaning to cause trouble.

The base of a modded Windows XP is a unmodded XP (I thought so, lol), so its warez ;)
