Do I need SP1a

  swapper 08:32 18 Mar 2006

If I reinstall WindowsXP HE, and I have Sp1a and SP2 disks, do I have to install SP1a at all?

SP2 is inclusive of the earlier Service Pack.

It will soon tell you it it needs the earlier version, though.

And don't forget to check for new updates after installation.I have just re-installed SP2 as an upgrade from SP1, and found many updates were available to download.
