I've often seen while browsing these forums the advice given in doing a repair to Windows XP that you may be asked to insert your Windows Installation CD.

My question is. my computer came originally with Windows XP Home Edition SP1. I have had it updated to SP2 more or less since SP2 was released. A few months back when I had to reformat my PC. I had to install SP1 then update it to SP2 from Windows update.

At the moment my PC is fine with no problems whatsoever thanks to the good advice and help I have found here. If I ever had to do a repair though using the installation disc supplied would my SP1 installation disc work or would I need to get an SP2 one?.

If that seems a little extreme( it's not difficult) you can always order a free SP2 disk from Microsoft.com and install it after you install windows and SP1.
