I now know that is a stupid question and what I need to do is slipstream SP2 into my I386 folder.
My old Dell desktop has defied me for the last time and must be reformatted. I have never restalled windows before but from what I understand it can actually be pretty simple, or annoyingly difficult. I have no install CD, just an I386 folder.
I backed up all my files, made sure I had installs for all my devices and programs, and was ready to run the Winnt32 app to begin the reinstall. When I tried to open it, I was told that the current version of Windows was different than what was shipped with the PC and that I'll need to unstall the more recent version first. All I've done to windows since I've had it was upgrade to Service Pack 2.
So how do I, essentually, revert to the old version of Windows my PC originaly had in order to reinstall? Do I go into the add/remove programs list? I see SP2 in there as well as a "Windows Installer"; should I remove these?
I hope this isn't one of those question that can't be answered without first giving every detail about your machine. I've already got a lot of work ahead of me after I do this and was thinking that reinstalling might actually be the easier part. Anyway, I appreciate any help I can get - You guys have never let me down.
