Click yes to all the warnings and reboot after SP2 is removed
As soon as the PC starts to boot, keep tapping the delete key until you enter set up, look for boot priority and change it to CD ROM then hard drive
Press F10 to save and exit then type Y to confirm, put the XP CD in the drive then press enter
Follow the instructions to install without repairing, confirm you want to delete the partition, (press L then enter)
The drive will format, takes a minute per GB of hard drive then it will reboot and install XP
Install the firewall and anti-virus programmes before going online and update them as soon as you do
Activate Windows then go to microsoft.com, downloads, popular downloads, search for downloads, get Windows Installer 3.1 for XP
Reboot then got to microsoft.com, use search microsoft.com and type
Microsoft Update, click the link for microsoft update, install it then run it to look for all critical updates, including SP2
