I had recently prepared a virtual machine with MOSS 2007 SP2 with a custom made ISO with SP2 slipstreamed with MOSS –just followed the instruction for creating the slipstreamed media-.
After a successful installation, i encountered many fanny errors during common operations (i.e. “Create New Site”, Add Site Collection Column etc).
After binging a bit i found many posts recommending reinstalling WSS SP2 and MOSS SP2 in the problematic MOSS farm. Bottom line, install MOSS and SP2 separately.
