    I don't know what's up with windows update or the windows sp1 installer, but everytime i try to install sp1, i get this thing that cancels it. is there any way ican successfully download and install sp1?

    The rest of the message isn't telling you to go legit is it? If so then that's it.

    ok heres what you do if you own a Legal copy of xp and have used the xp antispy program that was on the download page on this site,

    Just reset the options in that program to normal from the menu
    reboot the pc and then install XP sp1 , all should be fine now as the anyispy program blocks some thing in the SP to stop it installing,

    If you have a Warez copy of XP then thats a different matter alltogether :D

    wtf, i got my computer back in september of last year. a hp pavilion 7935, and it came preinstalled with windows xp. i didn't use any warex or anything.

    and here's a new version of the pic:
  8. must be something to do with the OEM winxp,

    1. re-activate WINXP

    2. if not, then check with HP about it!

    Here is a good comprehensive tutorial what to do before installing SP1. I found it today in a Microsoft Newsgroup. Perhaps one of the points mentioned may be the reason why the installation fails.

    yoyo - the deal with the HP and Compaq **SP1RcvryFix.exe** - sounds like the answer to this thread

    Thanks for the info - amazingly I just did a Windows Update check and the "fix" is not listed in windows update. The only thing in windows update is the warning/alert about having problems with System Recovery after SP1.

    Thanks again yoyo!;)

    I've been having the same problem, and I've posted other threads but to no avail. I do have a legit OEM version, but it's not by Compaq or HP... but... but... could I possibly try using one of their fixes? Or will the fix not even install at all?

    In case any one else has a problem installing Xp Service Pack 1, third party progs such Boot XP and Logon loader etc ,if installed on your system will prevent SP1 installer running.
    they can be reinstalled after SP1 is loaded.
