I had to change my HDD. I was given a disk that said Windows XP corporate. I was told that it was Pro, but it is service pack 1.
I went here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=en and tried to look for service pack 2 for windows xp pro, but I could only find Service Pack 2 for Windows XP Professional, x64 Edition. It took a while, but I downloaded it and and i then tried to extract it and it said extraction failed. So, what do you guys think I should do?

how do I find out if i really have xp pro

where could i find service pack 2

thank you for your time

You can download SP2 from here.

But I think you are going to have to find a copy of Windows XP that matches your original installation (and product code). By that I mean, don't re-install using a corporate version if your original installation was not a corporate version.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
