Is it still possible to get SP2 upgrade CDs for the original version of XP?

Ta for any suggestions

Do you mean the "Windows XP Service Pack 2" installation disc?

If so, I don't think you can order the CD, but you should be able to download it still from Microsoft

Then once you have SP2 click here to slipstream your copy of XP with SP2 and burn it to a single disc

It's still available for download from the Microsoft site, but be warned its a very big download, starting from scratch. It maybe available on a cover disk still, failing that, perhaps someone on the forum may have a spare copy.I cannot find my SP2 at present, otherwise you would have been welcome to a copy.

I've still got my original SP2 CD from Bill Gates. If you mail me from the envelope I could do you a copy.

Please allow approximately 4-6 weeks for shipping. ;-))

Quicker to download or have amonra send it to you.

Still cannot find my spare copy, but when I ordered it from Microsoft, it took a lot less than the quoted 4-6 weeks to arrive.

Why don`t you just download it? cant`t see the point in getting a disk and messing around slipstreaming.

Ive just carried out a Repair Install of XP using a SP1 disc. There is a very good reason for slipstreaming....if you ever need to carry out a fresh or repair install, you will save yourself a whole heap of time.

You cannot download if XP is Pirate.

Is that why you want a CD?
