Does Windows XP SP1 CD include all updates & fixes

  Muslimat79 11:01 15 Jun 2003

I just received a copy of Windows XP SP1 CD from Microsoft UK and I don't know if this cd contains all the necessary updates and patches that are on the Microsoft Websites. Actually I've downloaded most of the necessary things into my system. My fear now is what if something goes wrong and I need to re-install xp, do I have to download all these fixes and updates or I only need the cd to install the updates. Thanks

It includes all patches and updates, up to the time that SP1 was released. If you need to reinstall, you will have to download subsequent updates / patches again (unless you save them to CD first).

SP2 is out sometime soon (i hope) so downloading all the other updates after SP1 you will not have to do.

Even on broadband i'm impatient with it.
