HOW CHANGE WINDOW XP SERVICE PACK 2 TO PACK3

Recommended Posts


For the highest probability of success I suggest two things ...

(1) Use the offline installer which is a 300 MB file (331,805,736) from here.

(2) Run this after a clean boot with no realtime anti-virus/malware programs running. It is best not to have any non-essential programs running (iTunes, printer-crapware, google, flash and other updaters, etc ...). If you know how to use it correctly, MSCONFIG can cause a very 'clean' boot.

I would avoid the Windows Update online install unless you have a radically fast connection, but even with one it can still fail because of interference from one of the many 3rd party programs that are running in addition to Windows.

Dumb question: Does the OP want to install XP SP3 onto a live installation or slipstream it into an ISO?
