Win XP Pro SP1a upgraded to SP2 with a CD

  Giggle n' Bits 01:28 28 Sep 2006

Ok, I clean installed my XP Professional earlier which came with SP1a on the CD intact so I installed the Service Pack 2 CD which I used for the XP Home, the CD was a freebie with a PCA magazine sometime ago and just had SP2 on it in a Blue sleeve.

Can someone please advise if this SP2 CD works on both XP Home & on XP Pro or does xp Pro with SP1a require a different SP2 CD?

Just that I have been having problems installing windows updates getting error code and also cut of from my dial up cos currently my broadband has been cut off.

Sumary, does XP Pro SP1a need a different SP2 or are they all the same. All I know is looking at the id key it says in brackets 1-2 CPU OEM Product.
