IE 7 through WDS giving "Memory could not be 'read'." errors

Hello,
    I have set up WDS on an SBS 2003 server. Everything works great for a XP SP3 install with a bunch of apps, except for IE7. Whenever it tries to install IE7 it gives several "Memory could not be 'read' errors." all with different numbers. It then forces a reboot and it tries to install again.... with the same result. Any thoughts?

Also, IE is the last app to install.
I have checked and unchecked the reboot after installation checkbox, with no change.

JesusFreak42--What happens if you install IE7 before SP3?  Any reason to require IE7 be installed using WDS?

The install actually has SP3 slipstreamed into it. In actuality, there is no NEED for it to be installed. It was just requested. If I cannot figure it out it can be done through Windows update post OS install.

JesusFreak42-- Most PC's will already have IE7 installed when you install SP3.  IE7 very often objects to being reinstalled when a version is already installed.  Maybe make a new slipstream CD and do not include IE this time.

The solution was actually to make sure all the updates were synced to my custom msi through the Internet Explorer Administration Kit 7 (IEAK 7). Once I did that and remade the msi everything worked smoothly.
