    Anyone ever done this? I just did for the first time and this is cool. I did
    not even know you could do this. I bought Win XP the day it was released so
    my copy has no updates in it and I do a lot of reinstalls as I am constantly
    trying something new. I had thought about buying a newer version just to
    keep from having to download all the updates when I reinstall then I found
    you could do this:

    I copied my Xp disk to my hard drive
    Downloaded service pack2
    Integrated SP2 into my XP
    Burnt a bootable XPSP2 disk that I can install from

    I now have a brand new WinXP SP2 install disk and from now on when I
    reinstall I will be starting at SP2.

    I assume this is all legit to do as the ability to do it is pretty much
    built into Windows XP.


    This was actually pretty easy and did not take that long
