    Hi all.
    Question regarding XP and a common updated display driver.

    Just lately I have found my self installing XP onto some older PC's. The disc I use is XP Pro SP3 Retail.
    This disc works fine but I always have to run the updates and it takes for ever.
    So I have made myself a up to date disc,I manually downloaded all the M.Soft update files and intergrated them using Nlite.
    Also added Sil 3132 sata drivers and WMP 11.

    The problem I am getting is with the unmoddified retail disc after the install XP looks how it should with the "telly Tubby" desktop.
    After I install the updated version all I get is the grey looking XP.
    I know this is a driver issue but why should it look worse after the updates are intergrated .

    I dont want to make a specific disc for a specific board or graphics card,just a general disc where drivers can be manually applied after install.
    Hope that makes sence.

    Is there a common display driver update,like what must be in the Windows 7 disc.
