[access-uk] Re: Windows XP SP2

I've only the 1 disc so I first cancelled and it got upset with me. Had another go and tried OK. Again it got upset and they are the only 2 options. I'm completely stuck now. All I can think of is to go to a service shop tomorrow and ask them to load SP2 for me if they will.

Hi Roger. I assume then you connect to the net using a USB modem.
It could be another problem too that screwed me up on a friend's machine for
days. I consider myself a real dick for not trying what I am about to
suggest but I couldn't see the woods for the trees for days.


My friend got Windows XP media centre on 2 cds.

The install went well and after a while we were asked to install CD 2 which
we did.


There were a few files installed after that and we were asked to install a
Windows XP sp2 disk which we didn't have.

just put disk 1 back in again and you should be OK.

If you have only 1 disk, just leave the disk in and click ok again. see if
this works.

Cheers

Graham

Hi Graham

I bought the Windows XP Home disc from Ebuyer on Friday of last week.  I
don't have a router as the wife doesn't want to connect to the net.

Roger, Windows SP1 is not supported by Microsoft any more. if your
version
is older than that, i.e. an original windows XP disk from a few years
ago,
2001 perhaps, this version was full of bugs of many kinds and I would say
an
upgrade would be worthwhile.


You can connect the laptop easily to the net if you have a router as the
connection to the net is just done by the router so it's just a case of
plugging the laptop in if it has an ethernet port.

If you have a USB modem this is a bit more of a pain as you will need to
install drivers.

To sum up then, I would say it is worth connecting to the net to get SP2
if
at all possible.

Cheers

Graham

Hi All

The wife's laptop has just died so today a new one arrived but without
any
operating system installed. I have a legit copy of XP Home I've not used
so
I loaded that. At the end of the installation it asked for the SP2 disc.
I
haven't got one. She doesn't intend to have internet connection using
mine
for that. I've tried to take it off my machine but it seems when my
system
is updated no file is left on Downloads or anywhere I can find. I've
tried
to download a copy but again it will install it to my machine but allow
me a
copy. Short of connecting my wife's machine to the net just for the
download
of the application I can't see any other way forward. Unless someone here
can help me please. As she doesn't intend to use the machine on the net
she
doesn't need SP2 but it will not allow me to proceed without it.
