  • Windows XP SP1

    I think I've read somewhere that if you have changed your boot screen image you will have problems installing SP1 since it is not the original kernel. Has anyone had problems or could they point me to the right direction?

          I believe the boot image is just a resource inside a system file, so yeah, you may run into problems. Give it a shot though.. the way service packs work is they just copy over system files, they dont do 'patching' per se.

          Also, make sure you didn't install WinXP with a CD-KEY that started with FCKGW.... trust me. (-:

            It's not that it doesn't fix problems, it's that there is a known problem with the time it takes to load certain apps. I have noticed a big difference in the time it takes to load apps...

            Just my two cents...

                the reason for the upgrade to upgrade was to get other programs to work, like myhtpc for the tv tuner card unless i can just install those essential files w/o installin sp1
