Where can I download XP SP1A?
I'd like to download it to my hard drive so I can burn it on a cd with the rest of my XP upgrades/patches. (In case I ever re-install windows I won't have to d/l everything on my 56k modem again)

Microsoft.com will only install it directly and not let me save the file.

any ideas?

If you follow the link below it will take you to the download site. The file is 125MB. This is the complete installation and will take roughly 6 hours to download over a 56k modem (Estimating from the 28.8k figure shown).

Simply look to the right and center of your screen and should find a link to download the service pack.


I assume you are running XP Home and would like the English version. If not, let me know!

I have XP Pro? Does that matter?

No, it will work.

Yes it will work fine, the link I provided works for both Home and Professional versions of Windows XP.
