Can you transfer downloaded updates?

I have just bought a new hard drive and want to start from scratch with a clean installation to clean out some of the muck I have gathered. Installing windows XP is no problem but downloading all the updates again is. I have a disk for SP1 but was wondering if there is a way of saving downloaded updates to disk and then installing them on an other system.

Many Thanks.

Barry.

Thanks for the link jimv7 but after a 12 hour shift i'm easily confused, what do I do?

p.s. snapped one matchstick already, trying to keep other eye open.

Click on "Find updates for Microsoft Windows operating systems"...

Scroll down to "Windows XP SP1"...

Then click "Search"...

Click on "Critical Updates and Service Packs (37)"...

Choose your updates...

Then click on "Go to Download Basket"...

Then click "Browse" and choose a downlaod destination for all the updates...

Then click "Download Now"!

Ok starting to understand, I'm guessing because my system is up to date thats why it says my basket is empty but then again I could be wrong but if I download them again this way with new XP installation then I can save them for the future. Does this still mean I can't do anything with the updates I have already downloaded?

btw thanks for yourtime and help guys, and patience with a tired brain.

if you downloaded your updates recently,they will be in 'temp internet files' and you can drag them to another folder,using windows explorer.

You have to add them to the downlaod basket by clicking ADD.
