I have a bootable Windows XP disk with SP2 v.2096 integrated in it. In fact, I did a clean OS install from that disk not too long ago. I just downloaded SP2 v.2180 (RTM?)- ya the real one. I tried to run SP2 setup but was informed that the SP could not be installed over the current version of the OS. So, I have two questions:
Is there a way to upgrade my system from 2096 to 2180; or, does this mean a clean install?
Can I slipstream SP V.2180 into my Windows XP SP2 v.2096; or, do I need the original XP CD?
Ok, I guess that’s really four questions but any help (or related advice) would be appreciated.
