    But there is no TPC SP3 edition (other than the slipstreamed one), so I must use an oem SP2 Pro disc ~ right??

    That's interesting. I tried to do an install on a real tablet pc a few months ago. I used an XP Pro SP3 OEM for the first disc and took the second disc from the Tablet PC Edition 2005 (i.e. at SP2 level), just to see whether it would work. While the installation itself seemed to work flawlessly, the system was nevertheless bugged: The input panel kept crashing right at startup, even without any additional software or drivers applied. I don't remember the exact error, but I figured that it was related to the uneven SP levels of the install discs.

    After starting over with a matching disc set of TPC Edition 2005 and installing SP3 to the live system, everything was fine.

    Mind you, I didn't use english CDs, but rather localized ones. Maybe that affects the success of mixing the discs, or maybe I just had bad luck. In any case, I stayed with the safe route. :)
