SP2 for XP Pro , PCA Disc and download size

  Nessie 22:19 25 Aug 2004

I have just had a look on windows update for my xp pro and SP2 is listed. It is only 75 MB and i thought it was about 250MB. Also I know that the Service Pack will be on the PCA disk this month but will it have pro on it or just Home. Thanks Nessie

The full stand-alone update from SP1 to SP2 is about 270mb but that includes all the Hotfixes etc you'll have installed already so the installer will scan your setup and install just the components you need to bring it up to SP2 spec so 75mbs is about right.

As to the second part I've no idea although I would have thought the installer is smart enough to distinguish what flavour XP one has and install the relevant components in which case one release is made to cater for all.
