Hello all
Am just installing a new hard drive, have got , hmmm, an old copy of winxp pro to put on it, but need to know how I can get all the relevant patches etc before I go online. Also would installing service pack2 ( I have a cd from Microsoft) remove the need for the patches and in what order do I install everything to ensure compatibility with sp2?
Many thanks for any advice- you lot are soooo helpful, dont know what I'd do wivout you!

There are mayby one or two updates after SP2

So Install Windows XP then SP2(or if you can slipstream sp2 into your windows cd click here ) then MoBo Drivers folloed by graphics drivers...thenthe rest of the drivers before adding programs though do remember to defragment the hard drive.
