    I have Windows XP with SP1, but am trying to update to SP2. When I go to install, it says I need an additional 4mb of space to install. So, I freed up 4GB!
    But it still gives me the same message. I don't have internet in Windows on my mac either.

    How can I get SP2 to work so I can have sound?

    You need to make an XP SP2 install CD, not install SP2 as an upgrade.

    Find a window machine that you can use that is on the internet. Down load software call nlite (Google it: Take you Window XP CD and copy it to a subdirectory on the PC. Also copy your copy of SP2 to the PC.

    Do a little reading about nlite and run nlite to slipstream SP2 into your copy of XP. The output is an iso image that you can burn to a CD. Then follow the normal installation process for BootCamp.
