Trying to install XP Pro on new hd on Time laptop.
Have used ms boot discs - fine. But then it asks for 'XP Pro Service Pack 1 CD' and doesn't accept SP2 cd or anything else. Please can any one help - I'm getting desperate !!

Do you have an XP Pro CD?
Is your SP2 CD a full XP CD with SP2 incorporated or just the Service Pack on its own?
When you boot from the floppy disks where are you trying to install XP Pro from?

Santos7 - Hi! Txs for link - am downloading it now to try.
Eric10 - Yes, I have xp Pro cd including sp2 and also stand alone sp2 cd. Having booted from 6 MS XP Pro/SP1 discs which formatted/partitioned hd it then asks for sp1 cd. Hd seems to have partition at 8gb/56gish. I also have orig. reload cd's but thought clean installation would be better, so havn't tried that yet.

If you have XP pro disc you don't need to use floppy's just run straight from disc after setting it to boot from CD first.

SP2 includes SP1.
