Hi, I have windows server 2008 first release installed on my computer. I downloaded sp2 patch KB948465 x86 and tried to install it. But it shows an error "You need to install windows server Service Pack1 before continuing". When I look in the system properties it shows " Windows Server Enterprise Service Pack 1 v.126. How am I to upgrade ? Kindly help.

It seems to be that "Windows Server Enterprise - Service Pack 1, v. 126" is actually "Longhorn Beta 3" ???

Yes even I think that. So is it possible to upgrade it to server 2008 sp2 an if yes how?

no this is not possible. Buy a valid license and install the RTM version first and next the Sp2.
