    Article ID : 307654 looks as though it needs updating unless I have a problem
    on my machine.

    I have tried to run the command CDdrive:\I386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons, however
    all my companies CD are Windows XP Pro Service Pack 1 or 1a and I get the
    message :-

    Setup cannot continue because the version of windows on your computer is
    newer than the version on the CD.

    It seems like a catch 22 to me. Does anyone have any solutions to help me

    SP2 and Recovery console info available here:

    To create a slipstreamed SP2 CD:

    You can download the SP2 file (266 MBs) from here:

    or if you have a copy of the SP2 CD, you can use the xpsp2.exe
    file from that CD.

    Then follow e.g. the directions in the following article to
    create a slipstreamed XP CD:
