Default Slipstreaming a Bootable WinXP Home Edition SP3 Question?. (help needed)

I came across this thread from here How To Create a Windows XP Install CD With SP3 + Latest Hotfixes Included while reinstalling an old WinXP SP2 Home Edition PC to my workshop. I know it is a very old thread and the links given do not work anymore, is it possible one of you clever people could supply an updated version which a pensioner like me would greatly appreciate. I have already downloaded a copy of the updated final edition of XP SP3 and also have to hand my original Windows XP2 installation disc. Nlite is no longer available so a recommended replacement would be handy. I have a copy of ImgBurn installed on my Win7 PC but although I know it can burn an ISO file I am not sure whether it can slipstream a copy as NLite does. Thanks a lot for any help offered.

Nlite is available here: nLite - Deployment Tool for the bootable Unattended Windows installation - Download

Only experience I've had was slipstreaming SATA drivers onto XP once, and I also used nLite.

Everything went fine I made the disc on my 64 bit Win7 PC using nLite and following the instructions from a YouTube video I downloaded. As I had already installed the XP SP3 update I haven't tried the new disc but next time I have to reinstall at least I have it to hand rather than the rigmarole I've had this week. A couple of people mentioned installing Linux and I am giving that serious thought at the moment as I would like to try another OS as a substitute for Windows.

One really great thing about Linux distros is that almost all of them have what is referred to as a "LiveCD" feature that lets you boot and run the OS directly from the CD/DVD for testing purposes. This lets you test that distribution with your hardware to make sure it's compatible as well as letting you try the OS to see if you like it before installing it.

Many feel that the Mint Mate Linux distro is an easy transition to Linux for those coming from Windows. Check it out here: https://www.linuxmint.com/
