    I was wondering if the rumor i heard was true? I heard that when i upgrade to Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) i am no longer able to reformat my drives :noes: ....is this false or unfortunately true?

    thanks.

    I don't know why people are freaking out over SP2, i installed it on about 40 machines so far and not one problem. And if you are a devoted IE user you will love post SP2 IE, not 1 pop up or malicious software found to date.

    then get a legit copy. I've done over a thousand SP2 upgrades, and the only ones with problems were hacked copies. Make the customer buy a new copy, and no problems.
