Windows XP SP2 - getting it to work?

  prevrac 20:49 02 Mar 05

Has anyone got XP SP2 to work on a PC with a 64bit CPU? I got a download from Microsoft support but that doesn't work - anyone had success with this or should I just give up?

I have not even put the SP2 disk in my athlon 64bit pc, it's used as a coaster now. To be honest, with a 3rd party firewall, antispyware proggies etc I don't feel I have much to gain except a lot of hassle.

I only download updates that I feel will enhance security and not mess things up.

I have had XP SP2 working with an AMD 64 3200 since it was released, in fact I had the beta SP2 RC2 installed before that and have never had a problem of any sort, so far anyway.
