XP Pro disc required with SP2

I have a legitimate version of XP Pro that I bought, it has SP1 included.

I want to now launch XP Pro on a Mac that requires XP Pro SP2 disk, is possible that I can get this from Microsoft without having to pay for it?

I don't think I should buy another copy of XP Pro, just because I need SP2, I really don't see how this can be right.

    Can I install Windows 7 Pro on Windows 8 Pro Hyper-V with OEM Windows & Pro disc. I have a laptop windows Pro 8 and a lot of programs that I use is not compatible with 8. So, I enabled Hyper-V so that I can install Windows 7 Pro on the virtual machine, but I bought a bad DVD because it is an OEM. How can I can go about this.

  • Try to install the game 'Lights Out' (Adventure Company) on HP laptop under Vista with SP2.

    HP Pavilion dv9310us Notebook PC/1.0 GB Ram/Windows Vista Home Premium with SP2 installed / processor is AMD Turion 64 x 2 Mobile Technology TL-52 / no changes to the factory configuration

    Lights Out requires:
    OS: Windows 98/ME/2000/XP
    CPU: Pentium III 450 MHz or better
    RAM: 128 MB RAM (256 recommended)
    CD-ROM: 24 x CD-ROM Drive (or DVD of PC drive)
    Video: SVGA card graphics or better
    Sound: DirectX 9 Compatible Sound card

    Once I insert the disc in the drive, it starts to "work".  I disabled autorun because he was suspended when I inserted a disc.  So I open the folder on your computer and select the game and right click on "explore".  I then on the installation icon.  1.5 hours later, he finally asked me if I wanted to install the program (I've also implemented so need my permission before installing anything).  It's now 45 minutes (and still waiting) since he asked my permission to install the program, but if I didn't I had a program tried to install, I don't know.  In other words without box "Progress" or installation.

    Maybe I'm just too wait for Vista because this game was not "written" specifically for it?  Hell, more than an hour just to get to the point where he asks me if I want to install the program?  It seems to me that something is wrong somewhere.  Unfortunately I'm not well informed enough to understand.

    I tried defrag and 'cleansing' of the disk (C: drive, not the CD). I have even 50 GB free on a 100 GB drive, and there should be a lot of RAM.  Also, when I run the Task Manager, it shows the reader DVD RW as 'running', not 'does not.

    I * think * something is wrong somewhere in Vista, since the problem began with autorun hung when I inserted an installation disc.

    I would really appreciate any advice that anyone can have.  It's just not good.

    I was "Baby sitting" installation.  No dialog boxes have gone unnoticed.  I had the same problem with another game by the same company last night.  This game has been 'Dark Fall'.  As long that I left him alone, he finally got the game installed, but it took a lifetime to do.  I don't know if the problem is specific to this company or not.  I installed the last week several games download section of Amazon and Big Fish game, which none have given me no problem.  But they were all downloads, then these 2 games is basic disk.  Once Dark Fall WAS installed it worked fine.

    Thank you.  :)

    According to the Windows Vista Compatibility Center this game is not compatible with Vista.  You can try to right click on the Setup file and run in XP compatibility.  If this does not help, then you should contact the game manufacturer for any updates\patches that would make it works with Vista.    Mike - Engineer Support Microsoft Answers

  • Software re - install requires XP SP2 but I am already using SP3

    My PC crashed several weeks ago and I sent him to recover as much as possible. I was already working with WINDOW XP Pro SP3 update when the incident happened and everything worked very well. Unfortunately, I lost a few programs (Pinnacle's video editing software - Studio Plus Version 11) in the process.

    While trying to load, I get an error message that says I have to have SP2 installed upgrading to continue.  As I said, I had already used SP3 is how to reset my system after the crash.  Microsoft does support SP2 and has no practical solution.  Software is also is no longer supported and all the world wants upgrade me to the most recent (WINDOWS 7 or VISTA, new video, new hardware for video capture, editing software, etc.)

    Is it possible that I can get everything working properly (as it was previously)? The obvious answer is that SP3 should take care of it, but having the SP3 (instead of SP2) upgrade is what prevents the installation. How can I overcome the requirement for SP2 to SP3 is already there?

    Does this solve the problem you are having?

  • Satellite Pro M70 came with disks of Windows XP?

    When I got my M70 it came only with a single disc! the agifts, it came with the Windows XP Pro disc? because I have Windows Vista Beta 2 and I can't install it unless I don't I have the disc for Windows XP! becuse, I use my laptop to school and if vista do not have Word so I'll have to go back to XP!

    Thanks for your help



    The unit was delivered with the Toshiba Recovery CD because the help of Toshiba (on the desktop) contains an option to create the own Toshiba driver and Tools CD.
    This is why only a disc.

    By the way. You can create the second partition and there you can install a second OS without removing the available WinXP

  • Satellite Pro 6100 USB XP SP2 remove USB device after suspend

    I have a Pro Satellite XpPro 6100 running.
    I have a problem since I installed SP2 of XP in that USB falls when the computer wakes from sleep.

    The computer is up there, but I can reproduce this with SP2 only. Fortunately, I did a Norton Ghost and I restored the status of versions prior to SP2 for now.

    It does not matter what is connected to the USB port, or which port it's plugged. Out of sleep causes a ToolTip message in the taskbar on an icon that represents the USB port - and the message says 'USB device not recognized '.
    I can't find any help on the microsoft site, nor on the discussion group. I am at a loss as elsewhere where I can watch.

    Thanks in advance for any comments.


    I put t know what USB device you use, but it is known to me that some external devices like DVD-ROM doesn t support the standby or hibernation. Try to remove the unit from the USB port and plug it back. I'm sure it should work again.

    Good bye

  • Low light on Satellite Pro A200 psae1 with XP

    I installed XP Pro with sp2 on this laptop and now when I turn on the screen is really boring, so I have to put on stand-by and then turn it back on and then the screen is fine. What could cause such a problem? All the drivers are the latest version. Please help I have deployed 30 laptops for our users and all are to me!

    I wonder if you have tried to adjust the brightness of the display to the next level by using the FN + F7 key combination.
    The combination FN + F6 or FN + F7 increases or decreases the brightness of the display
    Usually, the power saver installed Toshiba control modes of different energy and the brightness of the screen to save battery.

    I would recommend checking this feature of the button

  • I have a MacBook Pro (mid-2012) with the audio jack single. Why not recognize it when I plug a microphone inside?

    I have a MacBook Pro (mid-2012) with the audio jack single. Why not recognize it when I plug a microphone inside?

    I use a splitter cable, and have verified meter that it is properly connected.  Also the microphone that I try to use the works when connected to a separate Recorder device, so I know who works very well.

    The audio output on a 2012 port does not support the audio input.  You will need to use the USB ports for audio input.  This will require an appropriate hardware and software.


  • After you have installed SP3 (on XP with SP2), the PC does not restart in normal mode, only in safe mode

    After you install SP3, PC does not restart in normal mode, only in safe mode, without giving a clear indication of what is the problem or how to fix it - other than say to check settings in the Panel (not very useful).

    PC is a Compaq Presario desktop with AMD processor, model #: SR1720AN product #: EL540AA-ABG

    I reinstalled the operating system recovery disks, which reformats HD and installed XP with SP2.

    I then installed the SP3 from a flashdrive (361 MB files). Everything went without hiccups, but final restarts, he won't get to normal mode, safe mode only.

    I did it twice.

    Any ideas? Thank you.

    Here are the specifications of your desktop Compaq Presario SR1720AN. According to the specification, this model comes with a processor AMD and Windows XP Home Edition SP2 installed at the factory. According to your description, it seems that the HP recovery discs may have been poorly photographed for an AMD-based computer. Please see this Microsoft article and this HP document about your problem.

    To solve your problem, please reinstall Windows XP SP2 by booting from your HP recovery disks. After Windows XP SP2 is complete restored and that your computer is operational, download the "Windows XP SP3 with AMD CPU upgrade utility." Run this utility, and then restart your computer. Then download the "Windows XP Service Pack 3 Package of Network Installation" for it professionals. You can also try to use the SP3 Installer on your USB. Install the update to Windows XP SP3 and then restart when you are prompted to.

    This solve your problem?

  • No disk Vista installation - bad/missing file on reboot prevents the go mode without installation disc required

    Is it possible to get an installation disk of Vista download image/content.  I have a valid code of MS for Vista, but there was no installation disc provided with the computer at the time of purchase (without recovery disc either).  An installation disc is required to restart the computer to restore startup files that have been corrupted or damaged in case of overheating of the CPU.

    If Windows Vista was preinstalled on your computer, contact your computer manufacturer and ask a Setup for your model disk. Boulder computer Maven
