SP2 from old Installation.

Posted: 03-23-2005, 01:14 AM
I have just installed Windows XP home and updated to SP1 . I have
access to the files on the old hard drive that crashed and want to know
if there is a way to access the SP2 that was installed on it or should I
download fresh. My reason for using this is because of my very slow
dial up connection. Lee

There are no executable SP2 installation files on your old hard drive.
You can obtain SP2 by visiting the Windows Update web site.

Alternatives:

Order Windows XP Service Pack 2 on CD (FREE)
