hi,
i just bought a second hand computer with windows xp pro installed. its not updated and asks me to update to sp2. when i try, it won't let me.

what are my options here? i know its pirated because i can't update.
do i buy the full version of xp w/sp2? or can i buy the xp w/sp2 upgrade, because xp is already installed? not sure which way to go....don't really want to buy the full version too much $$. one more question....can you install the full version of xp home version when i already have the pro installed?

thank you for any advice! greatly appreciated......

pirated...

yes, it is pirated...
and yes, i've already been to that site on microsoft. it tells you to submit a form of piracy to them, and you can get a discounted cd. but you have to submit the original reciept, and pirated cd that came with the computer....both of which i do not have. i don't even know the person i bought it from....

thanks though!
