reinstall of xp

  Head hurts 23:21 24 Jul 07

i need to reinstall xp home on my aged laptop i have the rinstall cd's and a floppie for erasing and partitioning the hard drive. my question is that as this was purchased shortly after xp was introduced when reinstalled i will go back to the basic xp without service packs, i have service pack 2 but not 1 do i need service pack 1 first and if so will all these updates still be available on windows update? any advice much appreciated.

I'd partially replied to your misplaced posting - SP2 includes SP1.

SP2 includes all the SP1 updates. You may want to consider Autopatcher to get all the updates in one go; click here
If you want SP2 on its own; click here

You do nt need SP1 as above. It would have been a lot easier with an Acronis Image

While you're at it, make yourself a new XP installation CD with SP2 integrated into it.

Go even further and add/integrate all post SP2 updates into it too, Using RyanVMs post SP2 update pack
