Hey
Im having problems installing XP service pack 1.
I have tried both the express install and the regular download and none of worked.

I have XP PRO, and I also tried the solution with cryotographic and it didnt
work.

Oh, and I think its a corporate version cause I didnt have to activate it (no I didnt get it off kazaa or something).

Any ideas??

Thanks

it sure does look like a kazaa downloaded version ;) But if you say its not then i believe you. You are using a illegal cd-key thats why sp1 wont install. the key you probably used starts with fckgw. You need to get yourself a legit key and change the existing key with the new one. Then te install of sp1 is a breeze

how did i know the cd-key you used? Its the Devils-One used on all the illegal copy's of xp. and the only blacklisted serial in sp1. any other serial will let you install sp1.
