I just reinstalled windows xp home and i am trying to install the service pack 1, i can download it from MS and start the install however it stops and says can't contact internet for data, or something like that.
What can i do to install sp1?

Service Pack 1 (SP1) is to old, dates back to 2003, so it may not be entirely available,... why don't you rather install SP3.. it's the same time, effort and it takes up the same amount of disc space,.. and it's a lot more secure http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322389

Ok thanks I will do that.
I was under the assumption sp1 had something I needed before I loaded sp2 and finally sp3.....how dumb I am.

Thanks
