I want to build up a mint, classic XP SP3 with all netframeworks, SPs and updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm a total newbie at setting up a system, but I love XP and I want to quickly put together a "mint" "classic" XP system, complete with all necessary net frameworks up to 4.0, with all service paks and updates.

    I just bought a second-hand nice Lenovo Thinkpad T42 with a 40GB drive.  It already has XP SP3, and it's nice.  Now, I want to build on it.

    When my ideal system is complete, I will clone the system with backup software, and keep the clone as a backup, so I will never lose my beautiful XP after Microsoft discontinues it.

    I can't afford to just wait for "updates," which are indeed turned on, and I don't think it will download net frameworks, anyway.

    Could someone please tell me, in a list, in order of instal, what I need to put in to achieve my goal?

    Thank you!  Appreciate your time.
