Step 4: Copy the Windows XP CD onto your drive

Now we need to move the Windows XP install CD and all its files and folders onto your PCs hard drive so we can update them.

Place the WinXP install CD in your CD drive and using Windows Explorer, navigate to the drive. Highlight all files and folders, right click and select 'copy.' Now navigate to your 'D:/XPCD' directory, right click and hit 'paste.' Wait the few minutes it will take while the contents of the WindowsXP install CD are copied into the directory on your hard drive.

Step 5: Updating the 'D:/XPCD' directory with Windows XP Service Pack 2

In this step, we run the 'update' command built into each service pack with the 'integrate' switch, which will merge our Service Pack 2 files with the WinXP install CD files and folders we copied onto our hard drive in the last step.

Now we need to update the XP files in the 'D:/XPCD' directory with our newly extracted Service Pack 2 files. Open a command prompt by going to 'Start / Run' and typing 'CMD.' Navigate to the 'D:/SP2' directory by first changing drives if necessary ('D:/,' 'E:/', etc.), then typing 'CD SP2'

While still at the command prompt, type 'CD i386\update' to enter that directory.

Type 'update /S:(yourdrivename):\XPCD' and hit enter to begin the update process. A window will come up and detail the install procedure.
