In fact there are many places that I can purchase XP w/o SP1
Yeah, because there is still some stock stuck in the channel.
Ingram Micro Australia still has some Win Xp with out SP1.
But then again.... Australia IS the rest of the worlds dumping ground for IT gear.
NOW HERE IS MY 2 QUESTION......
I am covered with work's MOLP program on my home computer. The boss has kindly given me the media too. (So i don't have to bug him the next time I need to format)
The media is a Win Xp with out SP1a.
SP1a I normally need install after I have all the other updates in place.
Now I am planning on getting some 2x 200 Gb Hard drives by years end for an IDE RAID.
These drives are going to be just there for storage. My OS is just going to be on my Seagate 40Gb.
Now With my current Win XP Pro SP1a set up, can I just plug the drives in and the partition and format to the full 200 Gb?
What to I need watch out for when I am installing my Win Xp Pro on my computer again. After all, I don't SP1a as part of the media.
