I have an AMD 2500XP / ASUS A7V8x-x MB Win XP Pro machine which is brand new and squeaky clean for software other than the supplied VIA and ATI Radion 9000 drivers supplied with the MB. To get my ADSL working correctly I have to install SP1 BEFORE I set up the ADSL connection. So I have got a copy of SP1a (all 125Mb or so) and have tried to get it to install. it progresses to the license agreement screen and then terminates its self with the most unhelpful error message "Service Pack 1 Setup canceled" (the dialog box title is Service Pack 1 setup error)

Has anybody any idea what is going on (or not!)

I think I may have found out for myself, it looks like I could have been sold a pirate copy of windows :sad: microsoft have fixed SP1 and SP1a to do some sort of check and if you (i) have a known pirate copy it won't install :mad: so now i need to buy a new copy
