Yes, that will work, but SP3 is mere days away from release, so there's no point in downloading SP2. Just wait a few more days. I think it's set to hit manual download sites on Microsoft's website on Monday or Tuesday, and then be on Windows Update a few days to a week after that.
Odds are, there will also be free CDs you can order from Microsoft with SP3 on it by the end of the month.
This Is a pretty simple question
My Old computer is not connected to the internet and is running XP home with NO Service packs. I want to install SP2 but I cannot use windows update because it is not connected to the internet. I have installed a uxtheme patch so would that make problems when upgrading? Somewhere there must be a file that I can download, burn to CD or thumb drive, transfer and Install.
I have found this but it says it is a Network Installation Package for IT Professionals and Developers. Can I still use it?
