    Hello.Soon I gonna make myself one of the best PC configuration ever,buying original pc components from all over the world.Of course I wanna buy original XP and Vista for multi-boot.

          My question is more XP related.Should I buy Windows Xp Professional or Windows Xp Professional Service Pack 2?

          Why do I ask this? Let`s say I buy Original Windows CD.I install it,i install Service pack1 ,then service pack 1a,then service pack 2 and finally service pack 3,all of these thouhght windows update(hope i see serice pack 3 soon there too)

          Is there a possiblity to destroy my licence key,genuine activation or anything? Wanna have a fully activated fully genuine windows forever,no matter how many programs I install.If there is a posibility to destroy my licence then I will buy directly windows x professional service pack 2

          I need serious answers from experts,until next week Monday,when I go get my pieces xD

  • Legitimate sellers who offer Windows XP Professional only have the latest version, which is Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2.  You need Service Pack 2 in order to install it on today's modern hardware.
