Factory Settings

  parkhead 17:56 24 Apr 2009

Hello Everyone,

Got some odds and ends troubling me on my computer so I am going to do what I do occasionally and restore to factory settings. I have everything backed up. Question is, is there some way I can back up Service Pack 2 and reload instead of having to use up a big bit of my download quota by downloading again after restoring?

Thanks a lot.

I think you will have to re download SP2, but you could put it onto a CD for future use if needed.

Can you get a friend on BB to download it and copy it to a CD or Pen drive?

Hi Rawpran,

I actually still have it on my pc but how can I put it on a flash drive?

Does it matter if I install Service Pack 2? What does it do anyway? How can I put it on a flash drive?

Many thanks,

You should have SP2 installed to keep everything updated

SP2 click here get your friend to download it ans when it gives the option to Run or Save Save it to your Pen Drive or CD
Also this may help you for future, slipstream SP2
