XP SP1 and SP2 on CD?

I have finally got Windows XP Pro on my PC which is coupled with a lovely spacious 160GB Hard disk. However my sisters PC needs updating to SP1 and SP2. Since I havent yet got the hardware to network the two PCs the only way I can get SP1 and SP2 is by ordering a CD from Microsoft. OK she does have a 56k modem but I am not tyng up my phone line for 5 hours to download the files!

I remember that somebody said there was a way but looking on Microsoft's website I can't find the link to order the CD. I live in the UK so I want to order the XP SP1 and SP2 CD from Microsoft UK (from which they say the postage is free) so would someone please be able to provide me a link where I can place my order for this free SP1 and SP2 CD. Also this means that after I have tried it on my sisters PC I can install it on my PC downstairs.

Thank you for your time

  1. If you want to update to SP2, you DON'T have to update to SP1 first then SP2, you can just apply SP2, which is cumulative.

    I couldn't find the link to order the CD from UK, but here's one for US, you can't order yet anyway. I'm thinking, when you will, they'll reroute you to the UK site, so check back there.

  2. I downloaded SP2 at work (took all of, umm, 7 mins) and have it up on all the clients on our network here.

    If you're desperate for it, send me a private message with whatever address you want it sent to by post and I'll send it (I'm in the UK), though it'll be on windows update in like a week or so.

  3. Thanks for your help!! Can that CD be used on a PC with Home Edition? My mate is also a dialup customer but he is not fortunate enough to have Home Edition like I have!

    Many thanks for your help!
