Out of curiosity: why do you want to remove it? (nothing bad implied, just curious) –  Gnoupi Jul 12 '10 at 5:54

I hope you're doing this just to create some kind of test platform. Running XP after 9 years is bad enough. XP without updates is just awful. –  Stephen Jennings Jul 12 '10 at 6:43

You can't. If the OS shipped with SP3 slipstreamed (pre-installed), then there's nothing you can do short of finding an OS installation disc that does not have this slipstreamed and re-installing your OS.
