jester got that one problem is ive built a pc on an abit kd7a motherboard and cant load the usb 2 drivers without service pack 1 installed and dont have internet access where it is.so i think its the full one i need as opposed to sp1a.ill try and download the one for administrators.
Don't understand the problem. The normal installer installs to the PC you are downloading it on. The network install that i gave you in the link is the entire package in a bundle. You download it, store it on a server or burn to CD and can then install to loads of PCs instead of downloading to each one.
SP-1a IS the full one. Whats the "one for administrators"??? If you you mean network install then thats what i gave you. If you want SP-1a on an XP PC, download and burn the above file to a CD and then run the program on the PC you want it on.
There will be no charge for this order. Alternatively I would recommend that you contact our Direct Services department by calling 0870 6010100 for full details and to place an order.
Microsoft will also be making SP1 available for inclusion on magazines cover disks in the near future. The UK Official Windows XP magazine will also include this on the cover CD for the December issue, which will be on sale as from 4th October.
