Yeah F5ing it is SP1 that has to be installed as I seem to remember trying the 2 and it came back one had to have at least the SP2 before anything else.

What i don't get though is why it will not do it via updates and I am having to go to the trouble of finding SP1 as a stand alone download. Plus it is so hard to find one goes around in circles chasing the tail as there seems to be no SP1 only SP1a.

I suppose I could try copying it off an XP that is running but I am beginning to think this is a lot of time spent for the short time XP has left

If you have got the xp install disc you could always slipstream sp2 into xp. You should not need sp1 or 1a as they are included in sp2 and then update to sp3. Anyway here is a link for slipstreaming win xp.

Ah thanks BB I'll give it go mate as I do dislike something beating me

Now this might seem like a really sorry dumb question but do I do this slipstreaming on the machine or can I do it on say my main machine?

Tell the truth I'm not real sure. Can't see why you shouldn't be able to do it on your main machine. Maybe a little investigation into the matter will be worth your while. Sorry bout that. Better ask someone more knowldgable than I.

No probs BB I have some refs pulled up right now and working through them. But thanks for the heads up[ mate and for reminding me about Paul Thurrot too - actually I have his book here - Windows 7 Secrets - it could be in there I suppose.

No go with this one am going to stick on Ubuntu as I think the original disk is either corrupted or too old

Should have known better than to waste so much time on the XP.

You wouldn't believe the number of XP machines I see day to day. If their hardware holds up for the next 20 months they're gonna keep it rather than upgrade. Squeeze every last bit they can get out of it. These are folks that really don't use their machines for much, so if what they've got does everything they need it to do they're not gonna make the change.

Yeah F5ing well it has the better of me and I tried that slipstreaming stuff but it really was very complicated and as you say 20 months - it isn't worth the grief anf time spent on it.

Those kids can have Ubuntu at least it will keep them off Mums machine and it's as easy as to install and operate even though it is "back to front" with Windows LOL!!

Oh and thanks for ALL your time and patience you sound like you have enough to do without sorting out chumps like me -I really appreciate it

I've so far been lucky enough not to have to bother with slipstreaming SPs. Some kind of way I've been able to apply them normally. If I had to go through the same troubles you've encountered with this one I think I'd have to tell the owner that they've got to consider their options. Just recover their data from it and move on with something else.

Hum well just a little tail ender - the Ubuntu would not load either I tried two ISO's and I reckon the whole machine especially in view that one RAM slot is defunct is a spare parts case - if there are any spares worth keeping - hum though the jumpers might come in handy LOL!!

So am trying again using one of the old school machines (IBM ThinkCentre M51) I was given - nice machine and will be ok for what it is for. These machines have XP on them but as they are Dept of Eduction they have a lot of security stuff I don't understand and don't know how to get rid of - otherwise I'd strip that out and leave the Windows as is - less the school stuff
