Xp With Sp2 Install Cd

Recommended Posts

The SP2 package itself isn't likely to change for quite a while.

Like SP1, they'll probably issue a series of patches until there are so many they make an SP2a.

You do not have to have SP2 installed to make this slipstreamed CD!

You can burn it and just keep it on standby while they release the "fixup" patches.

And doing a clean install with this CD will avoid a lot of the pitfalls folks encounter doing it through Windows Update.

Since on a clean install there are no stray viruses or other running programs (like firewalls and AV) there should be fewer problems.

If you do a clean install of XP then upgrade to SP2, you'll have all the updates and any previous fixes. Found oud it takes a little longer to do the SP2 upgrade on a fresh install.
