As far as I know you can't updated illegal copies of Windows with legal patches. And I don't know where to send ya either, I got my XP free from Penn State.

This will probably get moved to the black hole too btw.. or straight up deleted.

Re: pirate xp sp1 to sp2??

YOu could as he said actually pay for it....or find someone with an oem version(rhymes with bell) or sp2 and load it, and if it asks for a key call ms and give them the serial on cd. They are legally binded to give the key for OEM cd's.

There is aboput 3 serials that will never get sp2.....

one starts witch like fcyk....something

Re: pirate xp sp1 to sp2??

theres a key on the laptop usually on the bottom, and if its not there, call ms, give them the numbers on the tope of the inner ring of the xp cd...hologram ...yeah thats a serail for cd, then theres a product key, which you willl need to activate. Thats a sticker with 1-2 cpu and a xcbdg-2345-jfhgk-sdjhk code on it.


depends on the laptop though, i have seen some place it on the owners manual......with a cheap reminddr to affix the sticker to your pc...

what kind of laptop?

I work for an IT firm and have lots of legit xp licenses left, as some of our clients have migrated over to vista (god help them...). We've deactivated the keys, so if you need one hit me up.
