Wanting to install SP2 on Tiny computer

tried this initially when i first bought the computer and found that once installed the computer wouldn't reboot and wouldn't even go back to backed up version. In the end had to use the system restore disc which wiped everything off the computer. For security etc I now need to install SP2 and other updates but really don't want to lose everything again. I read about a problem with Tiny computers and SP2 but cannot find what i need to sort this out. Any other Tiny users out there who can help?

I think you are using an Intel Prescott based system (P4 or Celeron D). If so then you need to install an update before installing SP2. Check this MS article, it gives the link to download the update.
