Does anyone know if the current retail packages have SP1 integrated in them?

TIA.

OEM versions have it incorporated, I have a couple of copies that are labeled that way.

It should be, as SP1 was released a while back... but I believe there is a little thing on the left side, under the certificate of authenticity and the think that either says "upgrade" or "full", it says the version. (mine says "version 2002", and I believe the SP1's say "version SP1" or "version2004 SP1" perhaps.

seriously, just slipstream it yourself...easy to do and saves you a lot of time on reinstalls.

My win xp pro has sp1 in it, it came that way....and it also happens to block out most of the 1st generation "corp" cd keys. This was from last year when intel was giving xp pro away, along with the purchase of mb and processor from retail edge.

So if you have the corp. ed. you need to chng the cd key prior to sp1 install otherwise it wont work.

leet me guess, he is using what he thought was a corporate edition, and now, after installing it, is ralizing that it is requiring activation and he is fvcked!

Why else would anyone ask?:D

Unless of course there is some hardware incompatibility I haven;t heard of.
