SP2 = Epic Fail

Right. So I’m staying at SP1 I guess. Six attempts total now and the count stands at –

Install took, but broke things: 1

Install simply failed to work: 2

Install failed and broke my current OS install: 3

No SP2 for me. As I’ve said, XP SP1 was the best OS Microsoft ever made. Now I guess I have one more reason to stick with it.

So what am I going to do when I have run software that needs SP2 or Vista? Well, I happen to have a (free! legal!) copy of Vista Ultimate lying around that MS gave me at a launch event, so I guess I’ll just bash together a partition and throw that on there.
