I sent Gateway an email asking them if there were any issues involving SP2 and my laptop. They responded to not install SP2.

I just went to Microsofts update page and they scanned my system and came up with 24 High Priority Updates that I need. I'm wondering if I'm looking at SP2 broken up into 24 parts. Any one know for sure? None of them say anything about SP2.

HI
I do not understand why they would tell you not to install SP2 I would e-mail them back asking why this is? I have SP2 install and I have no problems with it at all. I install SP2 on all the systems I build.

With SP2 Microsoft made many changes to the core part of the operating system. Specifically with the netowrk configuration (added a built-in firewall, upgraded wireless network support, etc). On a clean install SP2 will most likely install fine everytime. However when you get 3rd pary apps in the system you can end up with problems. If you want to try installing SP2 make sure you have a backup. Also make sure that any firewall software has been uninstalled.

Otherwise just use Windows Update to install the updates seperately. Please note that you will not get all the advantages of SP2 installing the patches seperately.
