Upgrading Windows XP with no service packs

Postby Xanayoshi » Sat Nov 03, 2012 4:10 pm

To upgrade a XP with no service packs you need to install the sp2 package that is full. The original sp was pulled and sp1a is there to only (emphatically mess) with you. It does nothing since you need the .net framework to support the install that is available in the sp1a update. You also can not update your internet explorer. You can not install chrome. You can not install opera. Honestly, I never think of firefox..not a big fan..maybe it works..don't know. anyways..sp2full from elsewhere, best way to go..then
