Copying the contents of the disk and merging it with the latest updates. It's perfectly legal, in case you're wondering.toxicbomber said:Uh.. I'm not sure. This has SP1 on it... what is slipstream?
you dont need to spend $200, you could always get an OEM copy of windows with service pack 2, google it. i dont know how much it would cost in the states, but i know i could get one for around £50 in England, about $80-90, although it would actually probably be cheaper in the US...toxicbomber said:Please explain. I am curious as I don't think I can afford $200.00 after I just got my Imac.
B-Line said:I also have a SP1 disc that came with my old computer that I no longer use. I pre-ordered a copy of parallels during the beta period and have installed my copy of windows xp home. However I was not able to update my copy of windows because microsoft's update website deemed that my copy of windows was not authenic . I know that my copy is authenic because my CD has all the correct holograms and marking and worked without issue on my PC. However I was able to download the SP2 file from their website ( http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=049C9DBE-3B8E-4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en ). I installed SP2 and was subsequently able to recieve all the regular updates without issue using parallels.
I have been using the final version of parallels since the day it was released. I really like it and have been able to use both my samsung printer and usb memory stick with the software. I highly recommend it
