the reinstallation cd is something supplied by your pc maker--it is not technically a windows xp disk, but a reinstallation or recovery disk. These are often disk images rather than true installations (you use an image to restore a pc to facotry condition).
The other CD...it says what?
Why are you "upgrading"--you can simply visit windows update to get sp2

your system won't upgrade into sp2 unless you have a valid license.

Magical Jelly Bean
After it is done downloading, run the application. From there goto:
Options -> Change Windows Key
Enter the CD-Key that is on the side of your computer system, and click Change
Now try updating to Windows XP Service Pack 2. Hope that this helps.

Not accusing, but asking.

However, as for your disc. Reinstallation CDs are typically full installs... not ones you can use to upgrade. You'll either have to get ahold of a Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD (not Windows XP with Service Pack 2) or download it from Windows Update. You can go here and they'll ship you one for free.
