every new pc in retail already has sp1 on it. what is your specific hp model number. and do you have a link to this caution against installing sp1 from hp?
I have a new HP desktop with an AMD 64X2, 2.4 GHZ processor with 3 GB of ram. Windows update wants to install SP1, but the HP website is cautioning me on doing this. It is telling me some of my programs won't run and the printer may not work, ect.ect. Now I'm "spooked"! Should I or shouldn't I install SP1. When the PC manufacturer has reservations on the update, I start to wonder. I know I will have to back up and set a restore point. Is this windows program that "Buggy"?
