well it's just I've herd mostly horror stories about SP2 and it's slowing down the internet,lack of compatability with games and apps,and it hates P2P programs.
So I was looking if there was a way to avoid having to install SP2.
I would prefeer good gameing and program compatability over a little more sucurity.
I just want the best expericance possible.
"have you had good experience with sp2? honestly? cuz i havent and niether has neone ive met or talked to. but if you have plz share. i reformatted just so i could stick with sp1"
Well, yes, I have. Installed on my nforce2 system and everything went good. When I upgrade to A64. installed with my slipstreamed copy of Windows on my nforce3 system and no problems at all!! Every upgrade I did went smooth an no problems so far.
-Always put the blame on you first, then on the hardware !!!
No problems here with my 3 machines, or any other of the 25+ machines I have upgraded for family & friends, as long as you are aware of some of the issues with programs that have upgrades and patches for XPsp2 the upgrade always goes smoothly. :wink:
