Alternatively it seems to be possible to force an install of SP1, and the tuturial seems to say that it's better to have SP1 on the thing. Do you like the idea of going to the site and getting it and see what happens first?

I guess I'll try the repair thing in a bit

I'm inclined to use it, watch it, and remember to check for updates here and there, and reboot it every couple days. I do financial etc on this, have for years, and never any issue. So I trust it.
Ever wonder why people buy Macs, well, this is a great example.
I did reload an xp machine once, a work PC, in a way the data remained, and it was all quite easy. A few years back so it's hazy. The 'geek' at work would typically do this but was swampped, handed me the disc, told me what to chose, and said let me know how it goes.
My next couple months are going to be extremely tight and I will need this thing working, and I am already faced with a slew of things to complete before that madness begins.
What do you think?

. Use that one as it will have all the necessary drivers
I have a os disc "reinstallation DVD" that was in a sealed envelop
You will need to download all updates but do them in batches, the newest first as that will reduce the numbers. That is the COA
I guess this long number on the envelop seal is the one needed. Or I hope. This disk is pre-SP1.
That was a repair install similar to the upgrade that you tried
