    Hi there!
    I have a TravelMate 4010 512mb yep. It works fine, came with windows xp Home Edition no Service Pack. With a recovery partition. When I update to SP3 it slows down a lot. I would say can't use it any more. My wife use it just to read e-mails and read some news on Internet etc...
    I was wondering if I slipstreaming it to SP3 it could work better.
    I know there is an explanation about my question in some where, but I couldn't find it. I think this quote is the answer to my question and I just wanna make sure...

    Steps I have done:
    I got Bios backed up forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/27220-OEMBIOS-Backup
    I have the slipstreaming CD with SP3

    My question is:
    To make my own Windows Xp OEM/SLP CD
    The only thing that I need to do is copping the uncompressed files:
    OEMBIOS.BI_
    OEMBIOS.CA_
    OEMBIOS.DA_
    OEMBIOS.SI_
    winnt.sif
    to my i386 slipstreaming CD.?? Is it all??



    I think the HD is going down. This is the other reason I want to make this CD, if I need to change the HD I will be ready. I don't have the recovery cd.

    I really appreciate any help!!

    Thx
