JSI Tip 8392. Windows XP SP2 deployment via SysPrep.exe can only use a slipstreamed Windows installation?

The Windows XP Service Pack 2 Deployment Tools Readme.txt file contains:

You cannot run Sysprep.exe on an installation of Windows XP SP1 that was upgraded to Windows XP SP2 using Update.exe. Sysprep can be run only on integrated ("slipstreamed") Windows installations."
