    Did you read the link I sent?

    Click the pictures in the article. If you didn't choose to archive files, you can't uninstall.

    8) Well too bad for you dude!

    But in fact you can`t uninstall xp Sp2 if it is the beta version. And you also can`t install the real Sp2 from microsoft over it. Microsoft tells you this. You should read before installing something. :roll:

    The only thing left to do is fomatting your system an reinstall Win.

    Good luck. :!:

    Yes it can be done and there are two ways:
    1. Add/Remove programs--make sure to put a check mark in 'Show Updates'
    2. Boot onto WinXP CD and go to Recovery Console. Sign in to it.
    At the command prompt, type--or add as needed
    Windows\$NTServicePackUninstall$\SPunist\Batch Spuninst.txt
    -this is slow as it is through a DOS version of the Uninstall, also(as noted), if you did not choose to achive files, you are out of luck.

    Hi checked your posts on the sp2 issue. U can try either of these

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pro...ds/w2ksp2.mspx

    try this since winxp and win2000 are almost similar. The previous post might also help. U could also run a repair install which would remove sp2 but it would also remove sp1 and other updates if u donot have them on the repair install cd. Another easier option would be to run a system restore to a date before u installed SP2 on the comp. System restore might b an easier option.

    Regards
    Arvind
