Windows XP Pro SP1 / 2 buying query on Ebuyer

  Tinkey Winkey 22:26 26 Aug 2004

Windows XP Pro OEM is advertised on Ebuyer as coming with either SP1a or SP2a but not both !?

Does the SP2a version include SP1 or will I have to download it ?

Can I get XP Pro OEM with both SP1 & 2 included ?

Surely you have to install SP1 first , followed by SP2 - or do I just install SP2 only?

Microsoft Service Packs are cumulative. If you have SP2 it will contain all the SP1 stuff as well. If you have not installed SP1, it does not matter, you will just install SP2 and as I've said, it contains the SP1 stuff too.

Thankyou for clearing this up Johnsims - will get the SP2 version.
