    I believe there's a rule in this forum that forbids instructions for stealing software.

    Actually whatever the new system MS is using on their Windows Update page is a lot more sophisticated than when they just banned the most commonly-pirated VLKs. My buddy's key he generated with the BlueList keygen gets flagged as invalid :mamoru:

    No, there is no legit way of installing SP2 if you do not have a legit copy of XP.

    There are ways around it if you must... Google is your friend.

    reinstall xp with another illegal copy that has sp2 incorporated into it. There are tons of variants out there.

    disable the java script that attempts to validate windows version. I have a legit copy, I just don't like sending info to MS

    It's not the key that gets flagged, it's the version of Windows. MS knows that most people don't have the corporate edition.

    There is/was a CD version of the SP2 upgrade from back when SP2 first came out. My work got it since we had the MSDN. I dont know how easy/hard it would be to get a copy of this (or an iso) since it was a pretty limited thing. And even at that... i'm not sure if it would really work.... i was just putting in my .02 in case it helped.

    you can download sp2 from the link i posted earlier... it will install on a "less-than-legit" version. the only way you cant get sp2 is from windows updates

    That's a nice arbitrary limit you set there. I would say that anybody who doesn't own OffTopic.com needs to at least try to avoid pissing off major corporations. OT is not exactly low-profile anymore; there's a reason why Fazle has that anti-piracy warning stickied at the top of the forum.

    How about if you take the time you could spend making another 11,000 posts and use it to get a job instead, so you can buy your own shit instead of stealing other people's. Jackass.
