Windows XP Service Packs and 1 Update

Windows XP Service Packs and 1 Update

(UK-English versions only)

This worked perfectly when i tried first time (1.5hrs).

I give NO warranty and i DO NOT imply perfect install first time for you. As i always do installs like this slowly and meticulously, and i did it on an old machine which is not my main brain. So, if you mess up its your fault. Just follow all instruction from the readme file and the instructions that pop up on your screen as  they may vary slightly on different machines as some updates you may already have so you decide whether to overwrite them (i did) or not. Some of you may have to have a couple of attempts. But, if you love XP then no harm trying… Good luck…

No doubt unless you have been hiding in a cave somewhere you will know that Windows XP was demoted many years ago and therefore no further support is available.

Until now…

Having found an old Toshiba 17″ laptop (charged up perfectly) with a 40gb hard drive with windows XP embedded (no disc) so easy to reformat with a recovery disc (SP 1 was already installed at the factory along with embedded office software etc) I found that it didn’t work as it should as all windows updates are now defunct. After a long and laborious (careful) search around the web i managed to find the service packs, hot-fixes, updates and a bit of software named “Windows XP SP4”.

Ah, Ha you say… But there was no service pack 4…

Someone has created this file to include all the non nondescript software that XP needs to operate in the modern world. But, if it works ok after installing all the way to sp3 make a backup so that if you decide to take the next step to SP4 then its easy to go back one step.

So, i have uploaded these files (files in separate folders) and a “README FIRST” word document which you should print out, read thoroughly and don’t blame me if the shit hits the fan. One thing you should remember make a backup of your current XP and all contents, also make a recovery disc of which you should have this anyway. Then its quite easy to go back to year zero and start again or just put your own stuff back on.

When successful you should find that the likes of AVG or Norton and other software will work ok…

IN ORDER OF INSTALLATION UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED AS YOU MAY ALREADY HAVE SOME FILES, OVERWRITE OR UPDATE AS YOU SEE FIT…
