  1. I've just formated and reinstalled win xp, but i had a copy of win xp installed on my other harddrive.
    When I went to install all the various windows updates it claims that it is fully up to date, which clearly isn't right because i've only just installed. So I copyed what i needed from my second drive and formated that as well, leaving me with just 1 copy installed, however it still thinks that i don't need any updates. I've installed sp1 manually, but don't really feel like looking for all the other updates myself, does anybody have any ideas how I can force windows to find these updates? :confused:

    The date was wrong? So the installer thinks your operating system files are the latest, up to date, if you set the date to the future? That's really smart. :dead:
