Default 64 bit XPpro

I downloaded the ISO 64 bit XPpro and opened it in Nero 7.

I was surprised that it was XPproSP1.

Does any one know if the SP2 version is available or whether
there is a 64 bit SP2 that can be run and over installl SP1.

I have an AMD 64 bit processor and am keen to to tryout a 64 bit version, but with SP2.

Advise please.

although sp2 will overwrite sp1, but I will not recommend using 64-bit xp now, as you;'ll find your applications getting slower, also drivers wont be available for all the hardware, 32-bit application tend to perform slower when used on 64-bit o/s. rest your choice, as I still havent used the 64-bit, despite I went to buy the 64-bit, but later on changed my mind.
