nope...version 2002 didn't even have SP 1...if it came with any SP's at all it will say wich SP right on the install cd
I am not sure.
On the 3 page orange (front) and green (back) folder it says
Microsoft Windows XP home edition.
On the back "version 2002"
I understand that it came with service pack 2.
I was using Windows 98 before.
Yes, it says "includes service pack 2" on the disc.
Afetr clicking the delete button to get into BIOS, I went to advanced and there was no boot sequence or boot options, just a long list which could be enabled or disabled.
So I was going to copy them and ask which one to use but went back out of BIOS and it carried on setting up.
Out of curiosity I inserted my Windows 98 CD and it then partitioned my new hard drive.
It then asked for my XP cd and it then Formatted it and I have now installed it fully.
It's strange, in control panel it looks different, not so many things to click on.
I am now trying to get internet connection.
I use a wired Netgear Router which was installed in a shop where I used to live.
I do have a driver so I assume I need to install that.
I get so far and then it says "no cable or router detected".
Is there anything else I need to do to get connected?
I just looked in control panel (with this old HD), internet options, and the Connections box is empty and I have not added anything to the programmes page.
In network connections (old HD) I have a Local area connection 5 connected Realtek Rtl-8139d PCI Fast Ethernet
But I cannot install this on my new hard drive because when I insert the small disc that came with the ethernet card there is no option to install it.
When I click open 15 files are revealed but I can't work out how to intall it.
